Windows 7: Desktop wifi slow.Wired desktop Fast.Laptop wifi fast.

Desktop wifi slow.Wired desktop Fast.Laptop wifi fast.

Just boosted my ISP BBand speed from 10MB to 30MB... the wired pc and the wifi laptop have shown great improvement (approx 40MB), however the wifi desktop is still slow. I have replaced the adapter to a new up-to-date one, (USB) and alothough it is showing small improvement it is still restricting to approx 15MB.

You should run this tunnel adaptor remover first. Too many of these indicates a driver problem and it will also ruin your connection if there are too many of those tunnel adaptors. This problem happens all the time. Click and save the zip file, then run the zip file and reboot.

You might also considering using a different driver for this network adaptor. If the problem happens again it may help to remove the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter using device manager as it's known to cause connection problems such as you seem to be having.


Just use Tunnel Adapter – Microsoft 6to4 adapter Remover

Following what you said about tunnel adapters (had to google it) and the MS miniport I have considered installing the new USB driver on disk would be a good idea... so have done... futher to this I used the tool for tunnel removal and removed unecessary adapters (including miniport) then viewed the config file again. This reads as:

The tunnel adaptors aren't gone. You will keep having problems with this connection unless they are all deleted. Are you sure that you ran the zip file after it was downloaded?

The remover file worked for everyone else so I'm not sure why it's not working for you although you can delete them by going into Device Manager, open up network tab that relates to your network adaptor and delete them all from there.

If you want to get rid of those rogue tunnel adaptor entries then go to device manager, go to view at the top of the page and then select "show hidden devices". Then go to "Network adaptors" and just delete all the extra tunnel adaptors you see there, windows will create a new one automatically. After that check your ipconfig /all to see if they all have been deleted. You will want to reboot after removing them.

If they all don't show up you can change a registry setting to make them all show up "backup the registry first". You should have a nice clean ipconfig after that.

Registry Settings, navigate too the following key.
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTE\CurrentControlSet\Control \Session Manager\Environment]
Value Name: DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value Data: (1 = show all hidden devices)

Thanks for the guide... I manually removed all the adapters from Network adapters in Device Manager. Ran the IPConfig/all command and they had all gone...

Rebooted and there was a system error and checkdisk ran. Following this Windows 7 eventually restarted and found the current network adapter. Checked the IPConfig again and it is now reshowing all the original tunnels/miniports etc.

The erratic part was probably because of the extra tunnel adaptors. Looks like they are gone now.

Have you tried to disable the secondary wireless adaptor which is showing up as:

At this point I see more tunnel adaptors being created which usually means the wireless driver is having problems.
You might try looking around for a more updated driver for your particular USB adaptor.

I can't see what adaptor you are using so can't find a driver for it, however if you can post the specifics of the wireless USB adaptor I can look around for you.

As for the wireless network speed problem, this depends greatly on the number of walls between this PC and your wireless access point or router. The wireless channels being used also can have a big impact on your wireless speeds. You need to choose channels in a range that your neighbors aren't using.

You can use the program below to scan for clear wireless channels in your area. If you post a screen shot of the results here I can tell you which channel might be best.

hi Chev65, Sorry its been a week since I last looked into this issue. however:

The Xirrus Wifi Inspector found 2 wifis... Mine is using channels 11,7 ...and a neighbouring wifi is using 6, 10...

My device mgr states:
802.11n USB wireless LAN card (Ralink, driver v.3.1.6.0)
IntelR 82562v-2 10/100 netowrk connection (Microsoft, driver v.9.13.4.10)
Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter (Microsoft, driver v.6.1.7600.16385) - DISABLED

The box from new USB adapter says: TENDA 300Mpbs Model w322U V.2.0

I have d/loaded+installed a new driver for it and will see how it goes. Signing off this post to reboot. (fingers crossed)

:-)
