Hi all. I've looked through the various forums for my specific problem and haven't been able to find anything useful. My problem is that my new build (about 2 months old) is having slower and poorer wireless connection to the router. It has gotten to the stage where connection is very intermittent, and when connected can take 5 minutes to open an email. The specifics are;
the problem machine is entirely new; no component has been used before in another machine. All drivers
are current. Virus and Malware checks are clear. I am operating Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
It is not the router; there are 3 computers being served by the one router, and only this machine is having trouble. The other 2 machines are laptops, one running Vista and my laptop which is running Windows 7 Home 64 bit.
It is not reception; the problem desktop gets as good or better reception than my laptop when placed side by side, yet just this afternoon while I was looking through these forum pages it was taking so long to open a page that I booted my laptop, went through the whole start up, logged on to this forum and opened three pages before the desktop had completed opening a single page.
I uninstalled the drivers for the wireless card (ASUS card) and reinstalled them. It worked great for 2 hours, then disconnected again.
Sometimes data transfer is very good, just lately the 'good' times amount to maybe half an hour a day; the rest is just frustration.
