Aran,


WINDOWS 7 CONNECTIVITY/PERFORMANCE PROBLEMS AT PUBLIC HOTSPOT


The default Power Management settings for operation using battery and also for the Power Saver and the Balanced power plans could be your enemy.

To maximize the wireless performance for a power plan:
CONTROL PANEL | Power Options | radio button of the plan you want to change, ie, Power Saver, Balanced or High Performance |

To the right of the button you selected, click on Change Plan Settings |

At the lower left, click on Change advanced power settings |

Expand Wireless Adapter node | expand Power Saving Mode |

Click on the present On Battery: setting | set to Maximum Performance |
Click on the present Plugged in: setting | set to Maximum Performance |
OK button

Repeat this procedure for the other plans.

You will lose a little, but not much, battery life when on battery.

Current programs are;

Microsoft Firewall
Microsoft Defender (possibly, im not sure)
Avast Anti-virus

The connections are in the private zone with windows 7, dunno if that makes a difference. Could anyone with a professional opinion tell me about the public and private zones with networks please ?

Choosing a network location

The first time that you connect to a network, you must choose a network location. This automatically sets the appropriate firewall and security settings for the type of network that you connect to. If you connect to networks in different locations (for example, a network at your home, at a local coffee shop, or at work), choosing a network location can help ensure that your computer is always set to an appropriate security level.
There are four network locations:
  • Choose Home network for home networks or when you know and trust the people and devices on the network. Computers on a home network can belong to a homegroup. Network discovery is turned on for home networks, which allows you to see other computers and devices on the network and allows other network users to see your computer. For more information, see What is network discovery?
  • Choose Work network for small office or other workplace networks. Network discovery, which allows you to see other computers and devices on a network and allows other network users to see your computer, is on by default, but you can't create or join a homegroup. For more information, see What is network discovery?
  • Choose Public network for networks in public places (such as coffee shops or airports). This location is designed to keep your computer from being visible to other computers around you and to help protect your computer from any malicious software from the Internet. HomeGroup is not available on public networks, and network discovery is turned off. You should also choose this option if you're connected directly to the Internet without using a router, or if you have a mobile broadband connection.
  • The Domain network location is used for domain networks such as those at enterprise workplaces. This type of network location is controlled by your network administrator and can't be selected or changed.
Note

  • If you know you won’t need to share files or printers, the safest choice is public network.

Couldn't really find any specific setting that could cause a disconnect. Anyone else have any ideas to my problem ?
