Windows 7: Random connection/download speed problems

I...don't know if that is the right one. My control panel says that it's an x505, but some of the specs are more in line with that one (x500). I think it's an x505 that I had custom-built.

I can't find most of those things you asked for in that program. Where are they?

Edit: Oops. Well, I needed to find this info anyways. Thanks.

I don't think I'll run it.

I don't know, the third might be needed. This actually isn't my primary connection, I'm at work right now. (I don't live here).

I'm actually a guy.

I'm connected to one network right now, and yes, it's pretty secure; you need admin approval just to see the networks here, then a personal username and password to connect.

I don't know how many adapters I have enabled...

Hmm, I see your lease time is only four (4) hours (from chem.ucsb.edu). When it expires you would get dropped if the DHCP client doesn't automatically renew the lease. I would ask the sys admin to take a look at the access point settings.

Well, this problem is not unique to the campus, I get the same problems at home. Plus, this occurred today three (3) hours after I arrived at work, not four. I mostly get the problems at home, in fact. Usually in the evening.

Oh, and what are point access settings?

Sorry about that I guess that will teach me about guessing gender lol. Anyhow you can go into control panel and click on the network and sharing center and in the left hand pane it says change adapter settings, click on that and see if there are multiple adapters and if there are see if they are more than one enabled..

Your point access setting are basically the settings used by the router you using. Or the point at which you gain internet access. The DHCP setting should be set to automatically renew the lease when it expires if it doesn't then you lose your connection. You have to get into the router setting through a web browser by opening Firefox or IE and typing 168.192.1.1 and if the router has a password the default I believe is password and or admin to get into most routers...I don't think that is where the problem lies though. Sorry I keep getting interrupted by family members, I think you have to many wireless networks in your "manage wireless networks" in the "network connection and sharing center". See images below you should have maybe 2 at the most one for home and one for school. You can delete them all and re-setup the connections from scratch which is simple enough. Down by the clock when you come in close to an available network it will give a choice which one to connect to, choose yours and enter the pass phrase..

Here's what my panel gives me.

On a related note, where do I put that IP address? All I get is "IE cannot display the page".

Actually, I believe that this was happening before I added a second wireless network.

First highlight your local area connection adapter and right click on it and disable it completely.
