Windows 7: wireless speed annoyance.

12 Feb 2016   #1

Windows 7 Professional (64bit)
wireless speed annoyance.

firstly, my adapter is a Dlink DWA-125 (or thats whats listed in the device manager).

over the past month or two lve noticed slowdowns on browsing and downloading, the strange part is that rebooting generally resolves the issue.. however that said lve once noticed when lve encountered this issue that it seemed my laptops wireless was slowed down as well around the same time but l cant be certain its a related issue as its only happened once while my PC was doing it.. its just the fact that rebooting seems to be the only resolution to the issue that bothers me, lve tried rebooting the router when it happens but that doesnt help.

was just wondering what other avenues to try.


l will note that after quite a bit of searching lve found a newer driver which lm currently trying.. you see the download page for my adapter (specified above) doesnt show the rev.d adapter (thats whats on the side of the adapter and noted in device manager) so after ages spent downloading the newer driver 4.03 (the one l was using, well.. the one l have backed up in my drivers folder on my PC) was version 4.00 it was only by chance that l remembered and found a newer driver the russian site for dlink (tho l had to search using the driver folder name which l didnt think to do until now).

l will see how it goes, but one thing l do know is most times l reboot is down to wireless slowness recent reboots on average are 3/4 days but the past couple lve been getting slowness after about a day where google took a few mins to load, my routers internal settings would take ages to load.. not to mention lm going to question why its taking 15mins to download 60meg when after a reboot l get that down in under 30seconds (on good days l have 37meg down speeds, on bad days around 32meg).

either way l shall find out some point soon if the issue is resolved..

I'm not getting 300 mbps wireless speed.
My sister's laptop is able to get 300 mbps wireless connection from anywhere inside the house. But my computer is only able to get 120-150 mbps. Is it because of my network card? Router is Netgear N300.

Wireless download speed ~.38 Mbs
My wireless download speed has dropped to about .38Mbs since I installed Win7Pro64bit. I've troubleshot with MS, HP and AT&T and still no luck. Wired it's about 1.4 Mbs so there is something amiss. Have the latest wifi driver, no router, just an AT&T/2Wire modem, 2901HG.

Wireless Speed
I have a Dell D630, previously running Vista. After some minor TCP Window adjustments I had no problem maxing out my circuit on a speed test at 20Meg. Now with a clean W7 install and multiple different trys to adjust things, the fastest I can seem to get it is around 13Meg. Any suggestions?

Wireless Speed Bottlenecked!
I'm using a Belkin F6D3000(Atheros Chipset) (g/a/b) wireless adapter that is able to get 108mbs on XP Pro(with and without the "controlling" software).
