Recently bought new RAM (4Gx2, Gskill Ripjaw series) to replace my current 2Gx2 Gskill sticks. Installed the new RAM fine (computer recognized it, read 8 GIGS in the control panel.) However, it made my WIFI not work. I literally could not connect to my home WIFI signal. It picked up the signal, but it could not connect. The only message I got was, " Windows could not connect to the network." I have tried multiple restarts, resets, unplugs, etc. I do not believe it has anything to do with the router. Every other computer in the house can connect just fine.
So, I took out the new RAM, installed my old RAM, and presto, the WIFI worked again. So it really was an issue with the RAM.
Has anyone ever heard of such an issue? Is there a fix for this? Did I receive faulty RAM? Not sure if I should return them for a different set, or what. Googling has been absolute zero help, because I can't find anyone that has experienced such a problem.
