Windows 7: WiFi Slows or unresponsive.

WiFi Slows or unresponsive.

Ok let me try to elaborate. For the past few days I have been tethering to my desktop via my phone(WiFi)
And the connection will seem to stop or slow. And of course I figured it was the phone it self. So I would restart the computer and it will work again. I tried with two USB receivers and they would both do the same thing. I updated the drivers on both of them. From their manufacturers

So today I got home internet and my desktop was downstairs and my router is upstairs. So I connected wirelessly, and it connected and after a few minutes it stoped loasing webpages. but at that time I was on google voice and trying to open up youtube. I was able to refresh google voice but unable to open youtube.

While this was going on, I was on steam downloading an 300 MB update. And for some reason it was still going on but I was unable to open webpages. So I stopped the download to see if it will affect it in anyway. That was not the case, it still wouldn't.

So at this point I am kind of stomped. Any help will be most appreciative

Hi there,

Just need some verification here, does your issue occurs when you are both tethering and using your wireless router?
Heavy usage of bandwidth would also add to the issue that you're experiencing and also interference from small electronics devices and nearby wireless neighbors that are using the same wireless channel as yours.
Might as well post a snip of Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector by following the guide here.
