I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

Hi

I live in a townhouse in a college campus which means we all have the same ISP. I checked the channels and checked wifi stumbler. They both look good. For the last few days I have been getting really slow internet speeds after 7 pm till 1 am. I am paying for 25 mbps but around that time I get 0.5 mbps. I have the latest firmware for the router. I talked to customer support twice and all they did was reset my router and tell me to power cycle it. It can't be range of the router because my laptop is right next to it.

Can someone please help me fix this problem.

P.S: Here is my speed test: http://www.speedtest.net/result/1759174150.png

Hello-

I just bought an alienware M18x, and set it up a few days ago. To my knowledge, all of the drivers are up to date. Yet my internet is still slow (about half the time). I run a speed test, and it says my download speed is 0 mbps for a few moments, then it skyrockets and averages out to about 8. The upload speed is more consistent, but only at 0.3 mbps. I have centurylink at up to 12, and they've told me that the connection itself is fine. Encryption type is set to TKIP, as this helped before (though it's slow regardless). I can post my dxdiag if necessary. Any ideas?
 

A:Wifi Internet to my new laptop is slow

do you have other PCs on the router and do they work OK ?
all of the drivers are up to date.Click to expand...

sometimes you need to actually update the driver by downloading the driver and installing , rather than just doing an update

also try

Uninstall and allow windows to re-install the adapter and Driver
I would goto device manager and right click on the adapter and uninstall/remove and then restart the PC and let windows re-detect the hardware and reinstall the driver

i have ther following.

TP link router pre N 150 mbps and a TP link WIFI dongle also 150mbps.
I have a Virgin 50 meg internet connection.

When i download using a newsgroup via ethernet i get around 53mbps constant. no drop outs and very reliable.

Same PC same servers using WIFI dongle and i get MAXIMUM 30mbps. the speed regularly falls down to below 5mbps and then speeds up again.

I recently re-installed windows 7 and on my previous install i had the same problem, i downloaded SG TCP IP optimiser and it worked i got 47 mbps, i tried it again though on this install and it didnt.

The dongle is the TP link WN727N, this has no drivers on TP links website as it says windows 7 will automatically install the driver for it.

Any suggestions on how i can fix this?

Hi steve.

I would bet you are using "homegroup" as your network model. homegroup on some systems is flaky. You can test it for yourself by simply creating a new network connection using the workgroup model. If the problem is fixed you can then disable IPv6 and kill homegroup
Let us know if you need help

Did not need the IPConfig info. Why are you also downloading updates from some unknown third party website? You most likely have downloading sketchy updates, that is causing your problems.

If you want to update software. Let the software update from the software manufacturer site that created the software. Using third party sites can allow you to infect your computer.

I just bought this laptop about a month and a half ago, and a few weeks ago I noticed the Wifi is slow when my laptop is not plugged in. I looked up the issue and changed my power saver settings so that the wifi would have high performance even when not plugged in to the power source. This seemed to work for a couple days, but now it runs slow again when not plugged in. I went back into the settings to make sure they didn't revert to default, but everything is as I changed it and the problem persists. My internet is SUPER slow when my laptop is not plugged in and works perfectly fine when it is plugged in. I have been unable to find anyone with a similar issue and there are no other settings that pertain to my internet use that I can change to affect any outcome. Is anyone else having similar issues? Is there a fix for this? I don't like the idea of having to keep my laptop plugged in all the time for internet use. That kind of defeats the purpose of having  a portable computer.

Hello,
I have a 2011 Asus k53sv laptop with an i7 processor and 8 gigs of ram. I recently upgraded my wifi card because I had an old centrino 100-n card. I upgraded to an intel 7260ac in order to get better speeds in general. Currently my ISP is giving me 100mgbs download and 20 mgb upload. On my girlfriends newer laptop she is getting around 75 mgb download on speedtest.net, however, when I try speedtest on the same network using my laptop, I max out at 20 mgbs. These tests are done one right after another so bandwidth issues aren't the problem. I have all of the correct drivers for this card installed so I don't think that is the issue either. Any ideas on how to fix this on my laptop?
Thanks in advance!

If I am connected via wifi the download speed is 2 meg and it affects all the computers in the house (all are 2 meg)  when I disable the wireless adapter and plug into the router directly with a cable the speed increases to 50+ meg on all computers.
 
I am using a toshiba laptop S855-S5381
 
I have performed a full scan using kaspersky internet security and malwarebytes both clean
I have ran windows update and installed all updates
I have reinstalled the wireless nic drivers
 
still the same result.
 
aside from buying a new wireless adapter for this laptop (if its even possible)  can you recommend other things to resolve the issue?
 
It seems like a hardware issue to me however I would think if the hardware was bad it wouldnt work at all which is causing me to think it may be software related.

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
On Lenovo every model has it support site with all the drivers available. Check the support site of the C40-05.
 
Give it a try updating the wireless drivers first to see if something improves. There are two depending on the model:
- Realtek 8723BE, 8192EE, 8821AE, 8188EE Combo Card WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Desktop
- Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Desktop
Check which one applies for your model.
 
Also, just in case check any other process running on Windows that may be trying to use the network bandwith.

I connect my PC to my router using a wifi dongle (I wish I could use Ethernet but it's just not practical). My router is a D-Link Wireless AC1900, my dongle is an Asus USB-AC56. They connect strongly, usually at 585Mbps. My incoming internet connection is passed through from the modem to the router. The modem isn't broadcasting a Wifi signal. My internet is a fibre connection provided by talktalk.

When testing with Speedtest, my iPad, mobile phone, Macbook and other devices typically see down speeds of 40-60Mbps and up speeds of 15-19Mbps, which is roughly what they should. (I mean, I'm paying for 80Mbps, but whatever.) My PC will occasionally get the same, but very often the download is erratic and slow, something like 1-5Mbps, and I don't know how to rectify it. (The upload isn't a problem, so what I'm usually getting is an up speed that's 4-15x my down speed.)

The problem doesn't seem to be with the router or modem, given that my other devices are getting good speeds, and it doesn't help to troubleshoot through Windows because as far as my PC's concerned, it's getting an internet connection, it doesn't care about the speed, so it doesn't suggest any solution.

I have tried various combinations of restarting the computer, unplugging the dongle, restarting AND unplugging, and every once in a while after being plugged back in it starts to reach the 40-60Mbps range, but there's no consistency to it.

I don't see how the gf laptop is fine on WiFi when you have latency from the router unless she's on a totally different WiFi network, check the name of the router she's on, also do a speed test without the router and see if you still get kb instead of mbps,

This can be a number of things, how old is your router, if you have other WiFi devices hook them up to your router test the speed, hardware the gf laptop to the router see if its still fine. If it turns out to be your pc you may have a bad nic or need to reset something in the operating system.

A:Internet access via WIFI and share WIFI via second router

Due to the age of XP this is not the best option for what you want to do

Either windows 7 or 8.1 have access to Internet connection sharing (ICS) built in

To use ICS you need at least two connections to the local LAN, these can be any mix of wifi or Ethernet.

As you have a laptop you likely already have a system to use for this

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore.

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7. I have been using Time Warner Internet. It worked fine until yesterday. WiFi stopped working out of the blue. When I tried, wired connection works pretty well. I do not recall any significant changes to my computer while this happened. So now I can connect to the wifi hotspot but it says "No Internet Connection". When I connect the LAN wire with the WiFi router, internet works. The moment I remove it, it says No Internet Access, although computer is connected to the hotspot and signal is very well.

The drivers are being shown as up to date in device manager.

I tried following instructions given here: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Winsock-and-TCP/IP
This didn't work. Problem persists.

I have been through some threads around here. This is the ipconfig output:

Hi All,
I have established a Virtual Wifi Miniport and would like to share my laptops internet via the Miniport. Whenever I connect my android phone with this access point, it works perfectly for a few minutes and then all of a sudden there is no internet on the phone. The phone remains connected to the laptop hotspot but the internet access is no more there. Now at this point if I disconnect the connection between my phone and the hotspot and then again try to reconnect back again, it wont even connect. The phone will keep on searching and shows connecting status but can never connect. I have tried all sorts of softwares connectify, virtual router, intel mywifi and even tried to create a hotspot from the cmd using netsh command. All the hotspots work in the exact same way intially works perfect but maybe after half an hour internet is gone. I have completed all the steps properly even changed the settings in the laptop adapter with interet access to allow other networks to connect but nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 7 Machine and my wireless adapter is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless N-100 and the drivers are up to date according to windows. I know that its a problem with my laptop/OS or something because my android phone can connect and remain connected( without losing internet ) to the connectify hotspot in my wifi enabled desktop PC.I am breaking my head over this for the past 15 days even formatted my system once but no use. Please help if you can..please!

Hey everyone, sorry if this is in wrong area.

So today I bought a secondhand computer. It's a Toshiba Satelite L875D-S7230.

When I connect it to my home wifi it connects no problem and says 'internet access' when I hover over the icon. However when I open open google chrome or internet explorer and type in a site, it takes a little while then says this page cannot be displayed or this web page is unavailable.

The guy I bought it from says he had no issues. And I know it's not the internet because I'm using the internet to post this from phone.
I've tried a few ideas that worked for other people on other forums like using cmd box but to no avail.

Has anyone got any idea why the computer is being such a turd?? Can anyway give advice on how to fix the problem? Thank you all so much!

Well, it looks like I have solved one problem only to create another. I have a Dell Lattitude laptop with the 15.6 inch display. I bought the laptop mainly for its processing power (Core i7 cpu with 8 gigs of RAM) and it totally screams. I have never been happy with the size or quality of the little 15.6 inch display and I have had my eye out for a 24" LCD monitor which I just found, bought, and love.

The problem I am having now is that since I hooked up the monitor to the laptop docking station I no longer have to open the lid on the laptop to use it and my WiFi internet speed has tanked. Videos (YouTube, etc) that I used to be able to stream at 720 and 1080 now crawl along and I get constant buffering. 480 is not a problem but I want my 720 and 1080, it is one of the reasons why I bought the new monitor. My internet comes into the condo through a back bedroom and connects to my wife's computer via a Cat 6 cable. My laptop is set up in the dining room diagonally opposite the back bedroom. I have already moved the Router to the highest place in the room on top of a 5 foot filing cabinet with only a marginal improvement.

I have a Netgear N600 USB dongle antennae from a previous desktop with a 6' USB A to B extension cable. If I load the drivers for this USB Dongle into my laptop and then connect the Dongle will it automatically override the laptop's built in WiFi or is there more involved?

My internet is very slow. So I have uninstalled the driver to reinstall and check for any improvement. But after installation also there is no change in speed.
But the interesting thing is that, when I have uninstalled the driver at that time the WiFi symbol in the taskbar is gone and shows a ethernet connection and when I click on it shows its connected to my WiFi. So to check the connection to the internet I have opened the browser and it was incredible my internet speed is good. But the happyness doesn't stayed for it disconnected after a few minutes.
Please help me out. I need internet a lot for my project completion and I have very less time.

Hi,

I have a few laptops on the house and a very fast Internet connection however the windows 8 machine is connecting at a slower speed than both a windows 7 or xp machine.

I have updated the drivers for the wifi to the latest windows 8 one via the manufacturers website however or had both made a difference.

To put it into perspective, the windows 7 machine is running at 70mb via wireless and the windows 8 seems capped at 30mb again via wireless.

Anyone able to offer some information and a solution please?

For Internet access at my cottage I'm using a Rogers Netcomm 3G10WVR2 "Rocket Hub" cell modem and if I connect from my Dell D830 (WinXP-SP3) using a LAN cable I get good speeds (ie. typically 4-6 MB/S down and over 1 meg up) - BUT when I connect between my notebook to the Rocket Hub using wifi my speed drops dramatically to consistently less than 0.5 meg down (and the up stays around 1 meg).

I use the same Dell notebook in the city using wifi with a dsl modem and I get good connection speeds (over 5-6 megs) - so I don't think it's a notebook/wifi issue at the PC end - and also I have tried using a couple of different PCs to to connect to the Rocket Hub via wifi and similarly the d/l speeds are slow using the wifi link to the RH. Logically I have come to the conclusion that the Rocket Hub's wifi is flaky...

With this in mind, to be able to connect to my notebook using wifi I have plugged in a D-Link DIR-615 into the Rocket Hub's LAN port and then wifi'd from my Dell to the D-Link but the speeds aren't great. I get about 1-2 megs d/l but can't understand why I'm not getting close to the 4-6 megs I get when I hard wire between my notebook and the RH...?

Welcome any and all advice and suggestions.

Thanks and regards.
