Slow Wireless Connection - Intel Centrino Wireless n-1030

Q: Slow Wireless Connection - Intel Centrino Wireless n-1030

I saw some people having trouble with extremely slow wireless connections using an Intel Centrino Wireless n-1030 card. The original thread is closed, so the problem may already be solved, but if anyone is still experiencing this problem, here is what worked for me:

This NIC is a dual band card (802.11 + bluetooth), and with some routers having the bluetooth enabled really slowed down the 802.11n connection (it didn't seem to happen with my netgear router, but when I switched to linksys, WHAMMO!).

Anyway, when I disabled the Bluetooth adapter in Device Manager the problem was completely solved (uhhhh except I need to use a dongle to make my bluetooth mouse work now... small price to pay IMO)

Anyway, just thought I'd share my experience. Hope it can help someone.

I'm trying to replace a faulty wireless card and I can't figure out for the life of me where to order a new one. 'HP Part Surfer' doesn't return anything. I'm also not entirely sure where the part number on the wireless card is, all I can really see that might be it is a 'PNOP' number.Thanks in advance!

I have a relatively new (few months) laptop of my own running Win7 x64 with an "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030" wireless network adapter. For some reason, I have serious problems connecting to most wireless networks. On my home network there are rarely problems, but when I attempt to any other network (college, or public hotspot, or neighbor's open wireless) there are often issues.

By "issues" I mean: when I first attempt to connect to the network in question, I'm usually able to connect to the first few sites I try to access, but usually after a second or a minute or a few minutes of normal connectivity, I'm suddenly unable to access anything. The browser's response is that DNS lookup has failed; when I record an IP address (via ping-command prompt) and type it in manually after this point, the browser's response is that "##.##..." is taking too long to respond, etc..." No other program is able to connect either. I have tried setting different DNS servers but it has had no visible effect. At this point, the only thing I can do to reconnect is to either wait a long time for the connection to reestablish itself (which can take an hour or more and isn't guaranteed) or to go to Device Manager and disable and reenable the wireless adapter, which then *sometimes* allows me to reconnect for a few seconds or a minute or an hour before connectivity breaks again. When the connection fails, Windows displays the computer ... Read more

A:Unreliable connectivity - Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030

I had the same issue too. My GF's laptop has a 1030 wireless NIC and it had all sorts of issues connecting to the APs in my house. It would work fine with her Linksys wireless router and my Sprint MiFi. But had connectivity/performance problems when connecting to either of my Netgear APs (WG102 and WNDAP350) along with my PC W 620 wireless controller with AP 105 and AP 125 access points. Updating the drivers helped the problem somewhat, but we were still experiencing dropped packets or extremely high latency when connected. Upon a suggestion from one of my coworkers, I tried adjusting the performance/power settings in Windows and that seemed to have fixed the problem. The laptop has been running fine ever since.

I sent my computer in for repairs a while back and now the wireless card won't work. It can't find any signals unless I plug in the one from my desktop. I went to computer/properties/device manager and saw that the wireless card (Intel (R) Centrino (R) Wireless-N 1030) has a yellow "!" next to it. The properties tab says, "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)".

I have tried searching for new drivers automatically but it says they are up to date. I downloaded the latest drivers directly from Intel and tried to manually update them but it said that the drivers are up to date again. This problem occurs whenever I update my computer. I did a system restore and it worked fine for about a month, but once it updated it did the same thing again. There is no restore point to go to this time, so I'm stuck.

Anyone know what I should do?

I'm having a strange problem. Intel released new drivers to update from version 15.11 to 16.11. I downloaded them from Intel website, ran install, success. When I go into Device Manager to check on the driver version, I see it is still 15.11. I have tried a number of things, including deleting the drivers from the Device Manager and running the install again. However, in this case Windows 8 automatically installs even older drivers, version 14, dated 2011. I'd like to try the new drivers because it takes very long for the net to comeback after I wake up my laptop. Version 15.11 was installed by Windows Update, those drivers are dated January 2014.

What usually works is to connect using a wired connection then go to the Windows Update Center and install all the recent drivers for your new system, this should install the latest driver for the Intel NIC.

If you want the full 300Mbps this NIC is capable of then you will need to use the 802.11N Only setting in your routers set up page, using the mixed modes will slow your connection speed way down to wireless G speeds of 54Mpbs.

Or you could try using the drivers in the link below.

A:Intel centrino wireless N-2230 having slow connection speeds

If your router is dropping network when there's too much users, it might be overheating or overloaded and that your Wireless NIC might not be the problem at all. Playing 3D games that require online multiplayer is very demanding for a router that is not "high performance" capable. It might be the case where the router is overloaded when someone is playing an online multiplayer 3D game while others are streaming HD or using a Skype call VOIP all at the same time. You can try unplugging your router for 30 seconds and plugging it back in and see if ping spikes are gone.

A:I'm having wireless Issues with the Intel 1030,Turning off by itself

It almost sounds like a nic driver issue. Have you updated it recently? Try to update, or roll-back if update did not work.
Replacing your nic should not be to hard depending on your device. Usually the nic is the easiest of the add-on boards to get to. But, I really don't think it's the nic. Were you changing, installing, updating anything with your hardware, operating system when this happened? If driver update/rollback doesn't work, try a system restore if feasible.

Hello all,

My friend is having trouble with her laptop. Specs:

Lenovo Laptop
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
8.0 GB RAM
500 GB HDD
Intel Centrino Wireless N 1000

She has been having issues for the last few days where her computer will lose internet connection. Her other devices such as her iPhone still work properly on the WiFi. Only the laptop is affected. She says it seems to happen after a half hour so of usage. She has to restart to get it to work again.

I used TeamViewer to remote into her computer and looked at it. It didnt look like anything was out of the ordanary. I ran virus and malware scans, ran sfc /scannow to make sure it wasnt Windows corruption. All of those came back fine. I try to update the driver, but the driver installer will show a screen for about 5 seconds, disappear never to be seen again. Which kinda leads into the next problem.

There are certain files and applications that will not execute on her laptop. They will show the error:

<file path> is not a valid Win32 application.

It seems to be random. I can download one file and it will say that, but the next one will be fine. It doesnt seem to have any rhyme or reason to it. Because of this I cant get the drivers to update, so it seems that I will have to fix that issue before anything else.

Any ideas on this one?

A:Intel Centrino Wireless N 1000 Issues

The problem might be with the laptop, but the solution might be with the WAP - Wireless Access Point (router?).

You might check to see what channel the WAP is using and if it can be set to use one protocol (as opposed to b/g/n).

See the bottom of this post...

Once the connectivity issue is resolved, we can look into the file execution (corruption?) issue.

Initially I would just scan for hardware changes in my device manager and that would do the trick but now it does not. So there are days I start my computer and the wireless adapter is no where to be found. Troubleshooting does not solve the problem. Also I browsed through the internet and i saw that people who were having this issue they would disable there 802.11n Mode that helped for a few days but it has started to fail again. Now for the past 2 weeks also I have had three crashes, sometimes by restarting the computer the wireless adapter would appear again and so on three separate occasions I tried restarting the computer but it failed to shutdown and I got the Blue screen of death.

Hello all, I am having issue enabling the 802.11n settings for my WiFi card that is supposed to have N grade (300 Mbps) capabilities. The card standards are 802.11b/g/n. According to Intel's white sheet for the Intel? Centrino? Wireless-N 1000, it should be able to utilize the N grade WiFi speed capabilities. However, I'm not seeing the setting available in the Advanced settings of the driver. The attached screenshot shows that there are only b & g settings available. This is most inconvenient because my internet speed was just upgraded to 105 Mbps & I'd like to at least enjoy a little. I'm not getting anything above 50 Mbps. Is anyone else having this issue?

A:Where Are The N WiFi Settings For Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000?

It's the same for ALL Intel WiFi products. Wireless Mode for Intel is basically using ABG, BG, AG, A, G, and B modes only. (see screenshot)

For Centrino series, there's a menu called "802.11n mode" and from there you can use it to enable or disable WiFi N

For 7260 series, it is called "HT mode" and if you disable that, the NIC will refuse to connect to N network and will operate on G or A.

FYI, there's a difference between what Windows say on the connection rate and the actual rate. The actual rate depends on RF environment, walls between the computer, antenna gain, and power management. The best actual speed you can get is around 40 - 50 % of the speed reported by Windows.

Getting an actual speed of 50 Mbps means that you're already connected to WiFi N. I might guess that the connection rate reported by Windows is probably 144 Mbps. 50 Mbps is close to the maximum actual throughput of 70 - 75 Mbps. You can change the settings on your router to "force" 40 MHz channel width on the 2.4 GHz band and then set the "802.11 Channel width for 2.4 GHz to" "Auto" to allow the adapter to use 40 MHz channel width.

If successful, this should give you 300 Mbps reported connection rate and around 130 - 180 Mbps of actual speed. Therefore, your 100+ Mbps internet speed should be covered provided that your environment has little to none RF interference and the laptop is within line of sight of the router.

Hello there everyone,I am experiencing a strange problem with my y510p. I can properly connect to the internet via wifi, I have sorted out a few config problems which prevented me from connecting, but recently I am getting worried by the network card's behavior. I have recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 (I don't think that's the cause of my issue, but just in case). I noticed that my throughput was, according to Intel's PROSet Wireless WiFi Connection Utility, of about 130 mbps on wireless-n, at about 1 meter away (seriously) from the modem, which is clearly able to do high-speed 802.11n, because the model is kind of new. This modem came from the ISP with two different SSID-s active, and it's able to do 4, so I thought that I could merge the two active networks (set the same SSID and settings on both). Then I set 3 SSID-s active (all identical), then 4, then just 1, and I kept testing this way to see if I could get 270mbps. Not a chance, it stayed at 130. Eventually I found the solution. The system upgrade had set the network adapter settings back to 20mhz only, so I set it back to auto and I started to get 270mbps (intermittent speed) again. But... that didn't sort everything out. I was running an Ookla Speed Test and getting normal speeds when I noticed a slight clicking noise coming from the laptop. And it was absolutely NOT the hard disk. I could hear the hard disk making its usual sounds, and the other noise came from another side of the computer. The noise stopped wh... Read more

hi M B.,
Welcome to the Forums.
That's indeed odd if the clicking noise is comming from the wireless card. One thing that you can try is to re-seat the wireless antenna cables (see page 42 of the hardware maintenance manual).
As for the hard drive, to ensure that it's not the one that's making the clicking noise, try to disable the wireless connection run a diagnostic on the drive (i.e. via HD Tune) or put a load on it (i.e. via CrystalDiskmark) and observe.

Hi there. I'm having an issue with this wireless card on my laptop. I want to add that my expertise level in computers is not high, but I am a little knowledgeable. I would estimate my skill being about a 4 or 5 on a 1-10 scale, but can follow directions well. I also don't often know the tech lingo unless I've read about it online. I will include some of the laptop information below.

To put it simply, I replaced my wireless card in my laptop and I got the Intel 6200 to work, but whenever I restart my computer, or disable and enable the wireless card, it stops working. In order to get it to work again, I go to "device manager", right click, and uninstall it. Then I "Scan for hardware changes" and it works again. Each time I want to use it after my computer is turned off, I have to go through this process, and add my wireless passwords again. Obviously this is a hassle I would prefer not to go through.

To do that, go to: Network and Sharing Center.
Then, click on: Change Adapter Settings.
Check if your WiFi is enabled, if not: Right click on your WiFi and click on Enable.

I bought a toshiba satellite m45-s2692 on April 2, 2006.
It has an intel pro wireless 2200bg adapter - driver v
I have it connected a netgear wgr614v5 router.
it has a problem maintaining a constant speed. I watched the network monitor on the notebook and it always shows a "connection excellent" however, the speed is not constant - it will vary from 1mbsp to 54 mbsp - but seldom does it maintain the 54 mbsp.

on 4/20/2006, I sent the machine to toshiba - they replaced the network adapter - or so they said, and wiped the hard drive and reinstalled the original software.
I rec'd the machine back and find that the problem has not changed - it still will not maintain a steady speed so viewing files on other pcs on the lan takes forever and page loads on the net can also occupy too much time.

I have an older toshiba satellite with a netgear wireless wg511t adapter.
I have watched the monitor on that one and it will show connection excellent and maintains a steady speed of 54 mbsp. these two machines can be sitting side by side or in separate rooms and still the old one will maintain it's connection and speed but the new will not maintain the speed.

I called toshiba up again, and they want to say it's my router. I explained to them that another toshiba on the same network does not faulter -- so how can it be the router?

(Sorry, I just edited this because I realized the title said Wireless Router, it's actually a gateway. Can't fix it.)

I have a Netgear CGD24G Wireless Gateway and a Gateway MA8 laptop with after-market Windows 7 (Vista got a virus, went ahead and upgraded.)

Now, when I download 100 MB files on my Xbox 360 (Which is wired to the modem) it will be downloaded in a couple minutes, or less. The other computers in my house (There are plenty, and even more that come and go.) get a blazing internet connection, and most of them are wireless. Now this computer, which had an extremely quick connection as well all of a sudden dropped off, while the rest of the computers remain fast.

I've gone to before and after this occurred and my speed before was around 12 mb/s, and one time around 4 AM was even upward of 25 mb/s, all of these tests were performed multiple times on different server locations.

I JUST did the speedtest, and it came back with .4 mb/s, and the UL speed was 2.0. I honestly can't remember what I averaged with it prior to the problem, but it was definitely higher as well.

This started happening a little less than a week ago, and I've downloaded/changed nothing major with the computer, and have mainly used it for light browsing, and an occasional download.

Also, this is mainly just a hobby fix. I have a long enough cable to wire the computer straight to the gateway, so I really don't want to buy new hardware or anything of t... Read more

Hello everyone, I have been trying to get my wireless working on my Dell Inspiron n5110 on Windows 7 64 bit to no avail. In device manager I have the error "code 10 this device cannot start" I have tried almost everything so far. Reinstalled drivers multiple times, with multiple versions. I have replaced the adapter even though I knew it was a software problem because the wireless works on a live boot Ubuntu and as a last resort I have reinstalled Windows and installed all the proper drivers but still nothing. Any thoughts on what I could be missing or some suggestions?

I am stumped with regards on how to fix this one.

I am running a custom built Sager NP-5135, Windows 7 64bit system.

I am actually multi booting this system (Running Linux on one partition, and Windows 7 on 2 other partitions).

The Windows 7 partitions are, for all intensive purposes, the same (configuration wise).

Here is the strange part, the wireless connection on one of the windows installations (Call it Win7_OS_#2) is perfect - great connection speed, range is great, etc, etc (So the 6300 hardware is NOT faulty).

The other Windows 7 partition (Call it Win7_OS_#1) has a terrible time connecting -- the speed is slow (read it as "unusable"). It wasn't always like this, and I don't recall when it became this way as I normally connect using a wired connection.

On Win7_OS_#1 I have uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the latest driver, scanned for virus', trogans, malware, found nothing, and I still can not get it to work properly.

I have checked all the property and advanced settings for the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 card -- they are set exactly the same as on the Windows 7 installation that is working perfectly.

Does anyone have an idea as to what else I could check to try and resolve the issue (without having to reinstall windows 7 again)?

Thanks for your assistance.

On recommendations from various forum posts, I have:
1) Installed the latest Intel driver ( - supplied by Lenovo on recommendation from Intel's site.
2) Disabled IP6 in my wireless adapter
3) Played around with various power settings
4) Played around with various device driver advanced settings.

Nothing seems to make a difference. If anyone knows how to alleviate this issue, please let me know.

I have the same problem. I have an HP Pavilion 17Z-g000 CTO Touch running Windows 10 Pro with Intel dual-band wireless AC 3165.  The wireless connection continues to randomly drop internet connection.
When I first bought the computer it would crash Win 10 with a blue screen.  After several driver updates, it now just loses connection to the internet.  Clicking on the wireless icon, the network shows it as connected to my wireless router, but with no internet access.  After a while, wi-fi shows as being off, and can't be turned back on, and finally, wi-fi shows as disconnected with no available connections.  If I try to reboot, or shut down, the computer will hang indefinitely until I manually shut down by holding in the power key.
When I turn the computer back on, the wi-fi will show as not connected and will not show any available networks.  To restore the network connection, I have to diable the network controller in device manager, restart the computer, and re-enable the network controller.  This problem occurs both after waking from sleep and after a powerup.  The time it takes for the problem to arise can vary from a  few minutes, to a few hours after logging in.

I last updated my Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 on May 26 to the newest driver available at the time through Intel's website. That turned out to be a mistake. It usually worked but about once a week, when waking up my computer, it would have issues connecting to my network. A Windows repair usually fixed it.

Today I woke it up and could not connect at all. Repairing did nothing. I went into Device Manager and found that it said, roughly, "There is no driver installed for this device." I first tried to rollback the driver. Device Manager froze for about ten minutes. When it started working again, I disabled and re-enabled the wireless, found my network, entered my password, but it still wouldn't connect. I used HP Recovery Manager software to reinstall the original driver.

When it was done, it prompted me to restart. After a while, I saw a BSOD labelled DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (Minidump is a separate attachment). After my computer booted up, I checked Device Manager. My wireless was disabled because of a Code 22: Windows disabled it because of a known issue. I manually enabled it and it now works fine with driver number dated 22 August 2013. It's definitely older than the May 2014 driver but not the original system installed driver, from November 2012, which seems to have caused the crash.

I'm just wondering if my computer and wireless connection will remain stable and, if not, how I should fix it.

Now, we see that the "ntkrnlmp.exe" is blamed, but as we know that it is a Windows component, chances of it being at fault is very less.

As it seems, that since your Wireless driver was causing the problem. It should probably work fine. The BSOD might be a one time issue. In case of further BSOD's please don't hesitate to post back here. In case you want the list of 3rd party drivers to update let me know and I will post it.

I have an Acer Aspire 4720Z laptop.
I recently wiped it clean and installed Windows XP, and have not been able to connect to wireless internet ever since.

Also, Intel PROSet/Wireless does not appear on my Device Manager. (The only things that are listed under "Network adapters" is 1394 Net Adapter and Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet.) I feel like that's probably part of the problem, even if I'm not sure why, haha.

My case is a little different from those I found on this forum.

1. When I upgraded my thinkpad x200 to win7 64bit, I don't have "Wireless Network Connection", but I fixed it by stopping one setting of Kaspersky and it came back, so when I first found my PCI-E wireless didn't work, I thought the same thing happened, although I didn't remember the details, I tried the Kaspersky, don't work.

2. I updated the drivers, uninstall-install, start-stop-start WLAN AutoConfig... I have done a lot that can be searched on line, never worked for me.

3. Tragedy happened, I adjusted several common options on BIOS, then after several tries I made to make 5300 work, USB wireless died Don't know how to recover it, and back to my laptop again.

Could anyone here help me out? Really appreciate it! I have spent two days on this stuff, if no one can do this, I guess the only way is to reinstall the OS, that's the least thing I want to do.

Today i have a new problem with my adsl. The wireless was working at full 'advertised' speed last night, then today i noticed the wireless connection symbol in the task bar had changed from 54mbs to only 2 mbs, and a speedtest showed that it was a tenth of the speed it used to be.

Because i just installed my modem yesterday, i thought maybe this was just the isp limiting my connection until i register the modem or something. However, when i connect an ethernet cable between the modem and my computer, the connection works at full advertised speed. Does this rule out the possibility that my isp is limiting my signal, and suggest that the problem is with my wireless settings? Thanks for any help. The modem is a speedtouch 780.

Hi Guys,

My desktop computer which is running on XP - when connected to the network, the speed is only 1.0mbps whereas my laptop is connected at 54.0mbps - i have a BT Voyager 1040 so its not like i have a rubbish network card - i have scanned for spyware, viruses etc and nothing comes up, Any ideas on how to speed the connection up a bit? I have good signal strength before anyone comments on moving it about and that. It is right next to my laptop which has 54.0mbps speed - even when my laptop is off - it still stays at 1.0mbps.

Thanks in advance,

I am using a Netgear wireless access point that is connected to a Toshiba cable modem. I have a 8mb connection when connected from one of the wireless access point's internet hubs, however, when I'm connected using the wireless I am only getting 3mb. The Netgear wireless says it is supposed to run at 54mb/s. Can anyone help me speed things up?

A:Slow Wireless Connection

That may be as good as it gets. It's pretty typical for wireless networks to not achieve anything close to that on a bandwidth test. My wireless machines get between 4mbit and 6mbit on my 15mbit connection, wired the same machines do the full 15mbit bandwidth.

Hi, I'm using a netgear M401 wireless card in my Dell laptop using winXP, I'm connected to a netgear router whose Cable dsl is connected to a desktop running win98SE. I've tried connecting the dsl cable directly to the dell and it works fine, great speed, but when I try to use the wireless card the speeds slow way down to less than 10% of normal, downloads maxing out at around 10kb/s. I reinstalled the card, no luck, I've checked for spyware and viruses, nothing. It just seemed to happen over a few days and I'm wondering if anyone has any idea why or what I could to try and solve this.
Aside from this, both machines seem to be working fine.
Thanks for the help.

Hello everybody,

I'm hoping that someone can help me speed up my slow ADSL connection. It used to be fast but now it's quite slow (I tested this using a test file from my ISP, which consistently dowloads at about 1/8th the expected speed).
What happened in between? Well, I set up a wireless router and connected my pc to it, so I'm guessing that that is the cause. I don't know how to fix it, though. Do you?
Some facts:
-My computer is NOT connected to the LAN with a wireless adapter, but with a wire running into the router.
-The router is a Sitecom WL-521.
-I'm running Windows 2000 SP4.
-My modem is NOT switched on 24/7, only when my PC is on (only a few hours per day). Same goes for the router.
-I have no viruses or malware, nor do I experience system problems or problems using internet (except for the connection speed, obviously). I use Firefox for most of my browsing.
-I'm running Tiny Personal Firewall.
-An online port scan revealed that it's not possible to just hack into my system.
-I switched on WEP encryption on my router to ward off evil wireless hackers but the connection speed did not improve.

Can anyone think of a reason why my connection could be slow, and how can I check if that is indeed the reason?

Thanks a million for all your help,

Recently, our D-Link DI-624 router died. It was running faithfully, and when we added a 3rd computer and a wireless network printer to our network, the speed dropped and then it died.

We bought a Linksys WRT54G to replace this router. At first the internet speed was normal, and then it started to slow down again. This usually only happens during the night time too. Our three computers are: 1 Mac running Leopard, 1 Laptop running Vista, and one PC running XP.

I have tried a firmware upgrade, but the router is already at it's most recent firmware. We are not running any torrent software. But we are using WEP encryption.. perhaps that could be the problem?

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: As a side note, we have PPPoE setup on the router, in case anyone needs to know this.

Hi all,

This is my first post for a long time, the last time i posted you were all very helpful... so here goes!

I have two desktops (identical to the above spec) and a laptop running on a small home wireless network. However, the internet connection is slow on mine. The desktop mentioned above.

I think the others are ok!

My bro uses the other desktop to download NBA games and Movies and songs via Bearshare and iTunes and Bitcomet, not sure if this affects it?

Basically, my computer takes ages to open pages and load. sometimes it is ok , but others it really gets on my nerves. Surely it shouldn't be like this?

My friend told me to pull out the power cord from the router and wait 10 secs then put it back in, but i now have to do this all the time!!!

Can the router get infected with any spyware etc?

Not sure what is causing this, but its really frustrating!

Any ideas?

If you need more info let me know! Cheers all in advanced!

I have a desktop PC connected by a hardline to my wireless router (speed is up to snuff) and two laptops, one running Leopard and another running XP SP3, connected wirelessly. Sometimes Google results appear very quickly, but a lot of sites (even simples ones like that I go to all the time) take 15-20 to fully load. Sometimes the text of a page will load but not the images. Even my 360 lags when I game online, as if I'm downloading something.

My cable modem is a black SpeedStream from SBC/AT&T and my wireless router is a Netgear MR814 v2. I didn't start having this problem until I had to reset some modem and router settings (port numbers? some type of numbers). I did speed tests on all the machines and they come up about even so I figured it's a setting issue.

Thanks in advance for any help you could provide!

Hello. I am on Windows XP, connected wirelessly to the Internet via a Linksys wcg200 router. Everything has always worked wonderfully until recently, when my cousin started messing around in the Windows networking settings. He was supposedly making my connection more secure (though I'm not sure that he actually did).

For a day, I couldn't even get online. Now I have created a new wireless network, and can at least get online. But my speeds are 1013 Kbs for download and -1307 Kbs for uploads. SLOW.

The signal strength is "very good." I am now 95% positive that this has to do with some setting that he changed.

Also, not sure if this matters, but in ipconfig, my ethernet adapter is in a media disconnected state.

Please help!

I set up a wireless network about two months ago, and have had lots of grief. My laptop works between my school and home, except lately it never can find it's way to the internet, despite getting signal. I've seen some stuff out here on that, and will give it a whirl. Still, if you want to address this, too, I'll welcome any advice. Laptop runs 2K.

My REAL problem is with my second desktop. We have one desktop wired into the router, which has perfect service. The second desktop worked wonderfully at first, but lately, it has trouble accessing certain sites, but not others. Among the difficult-to-access addresses are my department website on campus, Compuserve, the router address itself, and a few others I can't remember. Most of the rest of the internet works perfectly. Oh yeah, except I can't download Ad Aware to save my life, although other downloads from the same site worked just fine.

Since I upgraded to Windows 10, about three weeks ago, I'm having a serious Wifi issue. The download speed dropped from 20Mb/s to less than 1Mb/s, and my upload speed pretty much did the same.

When running Windows' troubleshooter for my Wifi connectivity, it says: "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding."

I then did the ipconfig things, like ipconfig flushdns and ipconfig registerdns in the command prompt (with admin rights): I gained like half a mb/s. I launched a namebench scan to see which DNs servers work best for me. After three hours, I finally got the adresses and selected them as default DNS adresses in ITP4 preferences. I gained 5mb/s for about 2 minutes, then it was gone. I reset my router: nothing. I ran an update scan for all my drivers (took me a long time), and still, my problem wasn't fixed.

i have a 4Mbps DSL internet connection with 3 PCs connected through a router. 2 are connected wirelessly and the other is wired via an ethernet cable.

i noticed that when downloading a file from an international server, the transfer rate on the wireless PCs is 2-3 times slower than on the wired PC. the wireless PC would get about 150-200kb/s, whereas the wired PC can max out to 450kb/s on a single download.

however when i download from a local or nearby server instead, the transfer rate on the wireless and wired PCs are the same and can both reach up to 450kb/s per download.

i don't understand why the wireless connection is slower to international servers compared to the wired PC. don't they all go through the same router? or am i missing something?

my wireless signal is at 54Mbps with "excellent" strength. i also tested the ping results from both the wireless and wired PCs to international servers and they are pretty much the same. there doesn't seem to be any extra latency.

- all PCs are running windows XP SP3
- the modem/router is a D-Link 2640B

hope somebody is able to help or explain what's happening. this problem has been driving me crazy for weeks. thanks!

When I plug a laptop directly into the router it gets around 30MB/s on a speed test, without it the same laptop gets about 2MB/s (same as wireless desktop). Xbox is unplayable online. I uplugged the modem and router. I even reset the modem and router to its default settings with no help. Same slow internet. Did my router take a dump? Do I need a new one? My router is a Linksys WRT110 the firmware is 1.0.02.

edited- i meant directly into the router

This is a new computer with Built-in wireless LAN (802.11b/g/n).
Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit
AMD Athlon? II quad-core processor 645*
6GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM
ATI Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics

Router is netgear wnr834bv2 with up-to-date firmware

All windows updates installed.
All latest drivers installed.

Removed Norton, running Avast.
No viruses or malware.

When it is connected with ethernet cable the download speed (per speedtest) is 23.91Mbps but on the wireless connection the speed drops to 0.41 Mbps.

I ran it in safe mode plus network and got the same results.
Also moved computer to within 3 feet of router and got same results.

We had a desktop running Vista with a wireless connection in the exact same spot - no speed issues there. Also my laptop gets 21Mbps on speedtest in that location.

HP tech support says it is to be expected and to run an ethernet cable. If that was possible I wouldn't have bought the model with the wireless card installed.

I hope this is enough information for someone to help me.

I have a broadcom 802.11g PCI wireless card but recently it is giving me a slow connection when on a full bar signal. I then randomly goes back to running at normal speed but then cut out again and goes slow. There is nothing wrong with the connection as it works totally fine on my laptop. I tried a USB wifi adapter at that works fine giving me a fast connection. I been inside the router to make sure all the setting are fine and searched for driver updates etc. I don't think the card is damaged in anyway. I really have no idea why it is giving me such slow internet speeds but then occasionally work fine.

I have linux installed on my system as well and I am experiencing the same problems there also

A:Wireless card causing slow connection

My first target for scrutiny would be a runaway security app (antivirus / firewall) has decided to grab the one device.

I have seen older wifi devices (built-in and usb) simply stop working right eventually leading to 4kb/s or so speeds before eventually getting to the point that they can not maintain a connection at all as well.
