Windows 7: Wireless speeds slow, but fast in safe mode?

Wireless speeds slow, but fast in safe mode?

Hi all ive had this problem since i got my pc, basically my wireless speeds are around 0.5mb when i do a speedtest on windows, however on safe mode it will be 12mb. there's obviously some sort of conflict which i have struggled to identify.

here is what i tried

- fresh installs, although at the start the speeds are fine but once i install more drivers/programs it will do it

- installed different wireless drivers

- disabled certain processes/services

You might try uninstalling the wireless connection software that installed with the drivers, you should see it there in add/remove programs.

Let Windows handle that part of the connection instead, it usually works better that way.

Most likely it's something on your start up list or which ever A/V software is installed. You can use autoruns to narrow it down.

ok ive done a fresh reformat and tested speed after each driver installed

ive located the amd graphics driver as the culprit which cuts my speed from 12mbps to 1mbps

what am i ment to do as i need the graphics driver?

The driver installs properly and with no conflicts? No exclamation marks or anything?

So if you uninstall that driver your network speed returns to normal?

i decided to open up my case and resit the pci express wireless card in its slot and strange enough the speeds are now fine with all drivers installed
