Windows 7: Windows 7 Slow Wireless connection

Windows 7 Slow Wireless connection

This "slow" internet connection did not happen in Windows XP. (54.0 Mbps)

Its only when I first bought a new computer with Windows 7 then this slow connection starts to happen. (1-2 out of 5 bars) Plugging directly to the router won't work since the distance between my router and my cpu's back is quite far. (The router is insie my room) My wire isn't that long. Need solutions!

If this helps, Im using a 8 years old router / modemn.

What is your make and model of your system. It would be the wireless adapter driver that you can try and update. Or go into your Device Manager, right-click on your wireless adapter (under Network), and click Update Driver software..

Lets do it this way, right-click on your wireless adapter in Device Manager, Properties, Detail, then from drop down menu, select Hardware ID.

Screenshot the details in the window. Otherwise type out the PCI\VEN.... details.
