Wireless Slow


[link to this post]
 
For some reason the internet seems very slow through my wireless adapter, the signal is probably two off from being full but still some things wouldn't load through it, connected ethernet cable up and everything working perfect now, any suggestions?.

What is the link speed reported in the properties of the wireless connection?
Wireless frequently can connect but suffer from interference that results in the speed going up and down dynamically.

If you move the computer into the same room as the wireless adapter do things improve?

I haven't tried putting the computer in the same room as it will be difficult to pick up the whole computer plus the wireless router is in the hall, i will look at the link speed now and report back as i am on ethernet right now.

You may be getting interference from another router, in which case you may benefit from using a different wireless channel. You can use inSSIDer to check for nearby routers.

The kids was trying to use this site and the games was hardly loading, web browsing doesn't seem too bad but it is for sure faster through ethernet, the kids used that site again through ethernet and the games was loading really fast, this is the site.

The site that you are trying to access is pretty irrelevant. You need to sort out your wireless configuration.

I have just tried something, plugged out the wireless adapter and put it in the side USB's in the front of the case, it seems to be working ok now, checked the signal and that still remains the same so are one of my USB's in the back not setup properly or something?.

It could be that you have USB 1.0 on your motherboard, especially if it is old. You should also check if there are any firmware upgrades or updated device drivers available for your motherboard.

I have only just bought the motherboard and installed all drivers from the CD, it seems it never solved the problem anyways, just tried to load a game off that site for the kids and it struggled, put ethernet back in and it was flying, strange.
