Windows 7: Wi-fi takes long time to connect

04 Feb 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Prémium 64-bit

Normal restart helps over here. Anyway it looks that my laptop connects quicker to the internet when I do so.

I think Acer en Packard Bell are using kind of the same hardware inside. I noticed that while searching for some drivers and saw that some Acer drivers also popped up for my Packard Bell.

I personally begin to think that it has something to do with the wifi adapter in my laptop.
It's a Realtek RTL8192CE. I even had to put the adapter into b/g mode instead of b/g/n due to very unstable connections to my Belkin N+ router allthough I'm only like 6 feet away from the thing.

My Asus eeePC has a Atheros, my older Lenovo a Broadcom and there both on N modus.
Guess what, no connection or signal stability issues with those two, never been !
