X220 thinkpad laptop: Slow internet speed - wifi card?

Question: X220 thinkpad laptop: Slow internet speed - wifi card?

I've got brand new X220 with i5, and 6-cell battery. The problem is that the internett speed is ok the first 10-15 min, but after 10-20 min download speed seems unstable and slow. Does load constant if i stream or go to a page. I have tried several method in order to fix my internet problem. Without luck I have tried:Updating the driver, updating the BIOS, tried to change channel in modem, i tried to set AUTO under wireless settings, i have tried to have the charger in and whitout, I have tried with wireless-usb-card, One interesting fact, when i sit very close to the modem, the speed becomes good and stable. The speed is also good on different network. Also with Cabel it seemed good. What can be the problem, and how can i solve it? i have wireless card Wifi Link 1000 BGN 802.11n with channel for brand 2.4.

Download inSSIDer and see if there's a neighbouring network that's overpowering your own.

Hello,
I have a 2011 Asus k53sv laptop with an i7 processor and 8 gigs of ram. I recently upgraded my wifi card because I had an old centrino 100-n card. I upgraded to an intel 7260ac in order to get better speeds in general. Currently my ISP is giving me 100mgbs download and 20 mgb upload. On my girlfriends newer laptop she is getting around 75 mgb download on speedtest.net, however, when I try speedtest on the same network using my laptop, I max out at 20 mgbs. These tests are done one right after another so bandwidth issues aren't the problem. I have all of the correct drivers for this card installed so I don't think that is the issue either. Any ideas on how to fix this on my laptop?
Thanks in advance!

My Sony Vaio laptop is experiencing slow internet speed even though the signal level shows as excellent. This is only when using it upstairs, where it is normally used. In the same room as the router it is fine. This has only just starting happening and it was OK anywhere in the house until a couple of days ago. To make it even more confusing my wife's notebook and my iphone work fine on the network in the bedroom. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I connect my PC to my router using a wifi dongle (I wish I could use Ethernet but it's just not practical). My router is a D-Link Wireless AC1900, my dongle is an Asus USB-AC56. They connect strongly, usually at 585Mbps. My incoming internet connection is passed through from the modem to the router. The modem isn't broadcasting a Wifi signal. My internet is a fibre connection provided by talktalk.

When testing with Speedtest, my iPad, mobile phone, Macbook and other devices typically see down speeds of 40-60Mbps and up speeds of 15-19Mbps, which is roughly what they should. (I mean, I'm paying for 80Mbps, but whatever.) My PC will occasionally get the same, but very often the download is erratic and slow, something like 1-5Mbps, and I don't know how to rectify it. (The upload isn't a problem, so what I'm usually getting is an up speed that's 4-15x my down speed.)

The problem doesn't seem to be with the router or modem, given that my other devices are getting good speeds, and it doesn't help to troubleshoot through Windows because as far as my PC's concerned, it's getting an internet connection, it doesn't care about the speed, so it doesn't suggest any solution.

I have tried various combinations of restarting the computer, unplugging the dongle, restarting AND unplugging, and every once in a while after being plugged back in it starts to reach the 40-60Mbps range, but there's no consistency to it. (And I'm scared to turn the computer off because if I do it'll probably lose... Read more

Hi there,

I have just bought a nvidia shield tablet (coming tomorrow) and I have setup my laptop to create an ad-hoc wireless network for it to join. The problem is although the wireless card in my laptop is a wireless AC card and supports up to 867mbps, the link speed I am getting with my phone (has a wireless AC card too) is only 72mbps.

Obviously I would like the connection to be as fast as possible to reduce any dropped frames or lag which may happen when using the gamestream function the shield has.

I know there are lots of advanced settings for the wireless card in windows and from what I've read I need to increase the band width for the 5Ghz spectrum to allow for the faster data rate but I am not entirely sure how to go about this.

Any assistance would be great, and if you think you know the appropriate settings I should use, maybe you could assist me.

Thanks,
Charlie.

Hi, It seems there's a lot of complaints around the Wifi adapter thinkpad b/g/n wireless (1x1 bgn). I really want to know how worse it is compared to Intel 6205 (not to mention 6300- it's really a beast, people say). Can somebody let me know whether Lenovo charges this much for a upgrade like this (thinkpad 1x1 to intel 6205), and is it worth? Thank you very much!

Answer:X220 with thinkpad b/g/n wireless (1x1 bgn)x1 bgn) wifi adapter

when you buy the X220 from US online store the upgrade from 1x1 bgn to 6205 was only around 15 dollars. It is definitely worth the upgrade from the 1x1 to the Intel 6205 (the 6300 not so much). Especially if:1. Your wireless hub doesn't have a powerful antenna.2. Lot of other people are using the same 2.4 ghz bandwidth. 3. And you can live with 150 mpbs (usually around 75 mbps are more common) transfer speed.

I experience the following problem with a new one week old Lenovo X220 built with Intel Advanced-N 6205: After 3-5 hours it disconnects from a wifi router and would not be able to connect to it until I reboot the router. It happened the first time on Friday, I was connected to our Verizon FIOS router and after 5 hours I lost connection and won't be able to connect for 2 hours trying every possible thing until I rebooted  the router, what I didn't have to do with countless number of other laptops/cell phones. Now X220 loses wifi connection every 3 hours and won't be able to connect until the router is restarted. All other devices in a house work perfectly fine, my roommates probably already hate me for rebooting the router. Router: Actiontec M1424WR (Verizon FIOS) Other devices which were and still are able maintain connections with this router for many hours w/o similar problem:- my old Dell Latitude E6400- my Samsung Captivate cell phoneand bunch of other HP laptops, macbooks etc. What I tried and what did not help:- rebooting X220- turning X20 off/on- installing the latest drivers for Intel 6205 card for the Intel website- installing/uninstalling Intel Wifi tools and Access Connections- restoring from a backup (not a complete factory setting restore)- setting DNS/IPs manually for IPv4 and turning off IPv6 I tried to collect some logging with netsh tracing and it only tells that the driver disconnects during acquisition.Some clue I dis...

Answer:Wifi issue with X220 (intel wifi card); It stops connecting to a router after 3 hours

When it is reproducible in Win 7, went to Ubuntu Live CD and everything works there.So the problem is either inside:- router- Win 7 Intel 6205 drivers including shipped and the latest one  I don't think it is that low level though as I thought, as in Win 7 it tries to reconnect each time disconnecting during "Identifying Network" stage, and setting IP, gateway and DNS manually do not help.  UPDATE: I was able to update Verizon FIOS router to the latest firmware and switched it from WEP to WPA just in case.

I'm not computer savvy so please keep replies dummied down if at all possible. I used this laptop last on Friday and booted it today and cannot connect to the internet via wifi. No problems whatsoever before this. Checked with other computers and devices in the house and the wireless network and internet are working fine. Checked this laptop and wifi is on (airplane mode off), says its connected to the router (in connections) but icon in tray just scrolls and says "identifying". Using the LAN works fine. Looked at wireless card and it says device is working properly and is fully updated. This computer is running windows 8 which I'm still having trouble navigating through.

Answer:Thinkpad Laptop X4F -Will not connect to internet via wifi

Have you tried turning off the Wifi and then back on? Windows 8 should have that if you press the start key and typing in Wi-Fi. Click on Settings when you search and something for connections should appear. Turn off WiFi then back on to see if that helps.

Thank you for taking the time to read my request.

I purchased an HP entertainment laptop (windows vista os) about a year ago and I started experiencing problems with my speed a couple of months ago.

Most recently, I've experienced the following:

1. Slower speed surfing the net
2. Slow to open up an Internet Window (about 8 seconds)
3. Can not browse internet at the same time that an anti virus program is turned on (to monitor). Has occured with Norton and Trend Micro.
4. Can no longer access I-Tunes store or Rhapsody store when I open the applications.
5. You Tube videos are stop and go instead of running fluidly.

All of this is new behavior for my laptop...

Any ideas on what may be happening or what I should try to do next? I downloaded hijackthis, so I have that software program on my computer.

If anyone is willing to help, I would greatly appreciate it! Please let me know if you need additional information.

Many thanks in advance!

Hello guys, I bought a new laptop a few days back, but the internet has not been working as it should on it.

I can barely connect to the internet, and the signal is really weird. If I sit in my couch with my laptop the internet is barely working, though if I move about 10inches it will start to disconnect, reconnect, acting up, or not even work at all. Even if I move even further away I can still see my internet coming up on the list over available internetconnections.

I'm using an Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter, and whenever I try to troubleshoot my internetconnection a message saying "Problem with wireless adapter or access point - Fixed"

After running a troubleshoot and getting this message the internet will reconnect and work properly as it should be for 10-20 seconds, before returning to act up.

I have tried to reinstall the driver (latest version, atleast windows says so, but couldn't find any newer version online so I guess I'll have to trust windows on this one (?)). Also been trying diff. settings on powersaving, etc, but with no results yet.

I've had several computers, much older ones, all able to connect to my internet with no problems at all, no matter where in the house I would be.

Help. :-(

Answer:New laptop + slow internet connection speed ++

Whats the make and model of laptop? With this information we can try and find the correct drivers for you. It's all ways best to get the latest drivers from the actual vendors and not through MS updates.

Also, there could be some sort of interference from other appliances and electrical wiring.

What type of router are you using? Have you tried changing the channel on the router?

I recently purchased this new laptop.  It came with Win 10, 64 bit.  When the laptop is NOT connected to the Wireless network, my other devices work well.  My iPad, for instance, will have a download speed of approximately 11 Mbps and an upload speed of approximately 1.0 Mbps.  This is acceptable to me. As soon as I connect the new laptop to the wireless network, I get a slow speed not only on the laptop, but all of my other devices.  My iPad download speed drops to approximately 4 Mbps and an upload speed of approximately 0.5 Mbps. I have changed my Update Advanced Settings and have turned off "Updates from more than one place". I also turned off Windows Defender and installed McAffee Internet Security Suite.  I already had installed Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro. This problem came to light when I changed internet providers.  My previous provider promised 60 Mbps, but I was never able to get more than 30-40.  I wasn't happy about that, but the problem with my laptop was not clear.  I have an old laptop, an Acer, that I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10.  That laptop does not cause the same problem.

Hello-

I just bought an alienware M18x, and set it up a few days ago. To my knowledge, all of the drivers are up to date. Yet my internet is still slow (about half the time). I run a speed test, and it says my download speed is 0 mbps for a few moments, then it skyrockets and averages out to about 8. The upload speed is more consistent, but only at 0.3 mbps. I have centurylink at up to 12, and they've told me that the connection itself is fine. Encryption type is set to TKIP, as this helped before (though it's slow regardless). I can post my dxdiag if necessary. Any ideas?

do you have other PCs on the router and do they work OK ?
all of the drivers are up to date.Click to expand...

sometimes you need to actually update the driver by downloading the driver and installing , rather than just doing an update

also try

Uninstall and allow windows to re-install the adapter and Driver
I would goto device manager and right click on the adapter and uninstall/remove and then restart the PC and let windows re-detect the hardware and reinstall the driver

I just bought this laptop about a month and a half ago, and a few weeks ago I noticed the Wifi is slow when my laptop is not plugged in. I looked up the issue and changed my power saver settings so that the wifi would have high performance even when not plugged in to the power source. This seemed to work for a couple days, but now it runs slow again when not plugged in. I went back into the settings to make sure they didn't revert to default, but everything is as I changed it and the problem persists. My internet is SUPER slow when my laptop is not plugged in and works perfectly fine when it is plugged in. I have been unable to find anyone with a similar issue and there are no other settings that pertain to my internet use that I can change to affect any outcome. Is anyone else having similar issues? Is there a fix for this? I don't like the idea of having to keep my laptop plugged in all the time for internet use. That kind of defeats the purpose of having  a portable computer.

Hi everybody, I ran into some issues with my X220 some weeks back and have been trying to fix them to no avail. As far as I can remember I took some time a few weeks back to install the 1.40 firmware-update and also updated the battery-firmware in the same routine. I'm not sure If it was immediately afterwards (since I'm using a dock with LAN), but the wifi-card (Intel 6205) wasn't recognized by the OS anymore. No entry in the device manager! Here's what I've seen/tried so far:1) What I was firstly able ot see was that the device would sometimes show up after returning from sleep when not in the dock.2) Since I have an Ericson WWAN-card i switched mPCIe places. WWAN-card works in both slots. No recognition of the Wifi-card in both. >> So it doesn't seem to be related to mPCIe or the board.3) My guess was a faulty card, so I tried a newly-bought Intel 7260 Wifi-card in the slot.3.1) The Wifi-card must have been recognized by the BIOS, since the whitelist-fault was presented and I had to remove it to even be able to boot again.3.2) As the warranty wasn't my concern anymore anyways I flashed a whitelist-disabled version of the 1.40 firmware.

Answer:X220 doesn't recognize Wifi-card

Update:I used a debian live installation running from a pendrive to look for detected hardware. No wifi was found - again for both cards.I'm really lost for ideas at this point. What really irritates me is that the BIOS/UEFI recognizes the 7260 card with correct VID and PID. Yet still the cards are somehow (I guess) not made available to the operating system.On another note: I've just noticed that I posted in the wrong forum section. It's about an X220, so the "ThinkPad X Series Laptops" forum would be the correct one. Could a moderator maybe move this topic?

Does anyone know if the wlan slot is capable of recieving both wifi and 3g? If so that would free up the slot to have 2 drives and wwan! Look here http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Option-GTM-671W-HSPA-14-4_143721149.html If someone can confirm that this will work I will definitely order one.

Answer:x220 wwan wifi combo card!

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Interesting concept.
Even if it was recognized in the slot, I'm pretty confident that the card would be rejected by the BIOS whitelist with an 1802 boot-time error.

My brand new x220 was shipped with an outdated driver for the installed wireless card (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (2x2 AGN). This resulted in extremely slow wireless browsing. After spending 4 hours changing settings on my laptop and wireless router I finally called tech support. They revealed the outdated driver, and showed me where to download the update. This solved the browsing problem. I understand keeping drivers updated is important, but I didn't expect a brand new computer to use two-year old drivers. It's like Lenovo shipped a laptop with "some assembly required, but didn't include the instructions. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Answer:x220 Shipped with outdated drivers (slow WiFi)

So did my old Dell long time ago. It happens and no biggie to install the new updated ones.Your X220 has an driver update in Lenovo device experience when you click on Start > Click on Lenovo Device Experience > click on Update and drivers.  This will guide you in downloading any newer drivers.... Of course there maybe newer ones just coming out and the update site takes a while to catch up

So my X220 with the Intel 6205 card is having issues reconnecting to WiFi when resuming from sleep or hibernation. It takes about a minute for it to do so, though occasionally it will reconnect right away. Maybe 1 out of 20. When doing a cold boot or restart, it connects immediately upon the desktop showing up. This was not always the case, in fact when I first got my X220 in June, I have not had this issue.... In fact, I don't know when it started happening, but it was maybe a couple months ago. I just thought it was my old router going bad. Well I got a new router, and it still happens. I have the latest Intel WiFi drivers from Lenovo, and I even tried downgrading to the previous driver from Intel's site. Still the same problem. I tried setting a default profile in access connections, and that does not help. In fact, it behaves the same way if I totally uninstall access connections as well. In fact I tried this on three different brand routers, and I can reproduce it on all of them (Asus, Netgear & TP-Link) so I think this is not a router issue. Other devices in the house reconnect right away with no issues (iPhone 4, PS3, Mac desktop, Dell laptop). I currently have BIOS 1.24, but this was happening with 1.21 and 1.23 as well. My X220 originally came with 1.16, and I haven't updated it until 1.21. Unfortunately I don't remember that far back, if the problem started occuring then. There was a brief discussion about this in another thread, but it went nowhe... Read more

The modem is very well compatible with the Windows-7 32-bit as per the internet service providers and when I reported the error, they notified me the connection is being blocked/hung. I tried with different service providers, the problem is same with all.Please do help me in resolving if any one had any idea. Thanks,DT

I've read from various places that Lenovo whitelists WLAN/WWAN cards in BIOS. What level of whitelisting do they do? Will this block all aftermarket cards? I'm interested in installing a Killer 1102N Wifi card (primarily because of the control over the network stack the driver provides the user with). Will I have any problems with this? Do I need to hack my BIOS etc? Heres a link to the actual wifi card product http://www.bigfootnetworks.com/killer-wireless-n-1102/  I'm only purchasing this aftermarket because Lenovo doesn't actually offer this card in their notebooks

Answer:X220 Tablet + Killer 1102 N Wifi Card?

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_with_unauthorized_MiniPCI_network_card
 
The reason for the whitelist is to match the card to the antennas to comply with FCC regulations regarding interference.  Most mfgrs. do the same thing.  The link explains it fairly well.  The card has to be Lenovo branded.  You can take the exact same two wireless cards and if one is not Lenovo branded, it will throw the error.  
 
And yes, you would have to modify the bios.

Thank you for having this forum available.My husband passed down his Thinkpad A21M Type 2628-GTU to our son. The wifi card that was with it is a Lucent Technologies Orinoco Silver 11mbit/s t/n 03549501 p/n012938/c. When powered up last night, the ethernet was fully functional, but the wireless card didn't connect to the net. My husband assumed the Lucent card was bad. Is there something compatible I may buy to replace it? Do you have a suggestion on what he might have missed in trying to get it to work at home? He has used this laptop all over the country including at home before, so I would imagine he knows what he is doing. But, we do have a new service provider since the company upgraded his computer system. Thank you so much!

Answer:Compatible WIFI card for Thinkpad a21m, wifi orinoco silver no longer working

Welcome to the forum! Honestly, it's time to upgrade to a newer card anyway, at least b/g. Any PCMCIA wireless card will work with your A21m, it all depends on your router, and your personal preferences. Hope this helps.

I don't see how the gf laptop is fine on WiFi when you have latency from the router unless she's on a totally different WiFi network, check the name of the router she's on, also do a speed test without the router and see if you still get kb instead of mbps,

This can be a number of things, how old is your router, if you have other WiFi devices hook them up to your router test the speed, hardware the gf laptop to the router see if its still fine. If it turns out to be your pc you may have a bad nic or need to reset something in the operating system.

I am a fan of Lenovo Thinkpad laptops, and recently bought a T530 to replace my old T400 laptop. I love my old laptop and would like to keep in around for non-work related stuff at home. I have had this computer for 3 and a half years now. It doesnt has anything physically wrong with it. But after 3 years of use, it is very slow at times, especially browsing the internet. I would like to improve its speed. This is where I need help from you guys. When I got this computer about 3 years ago, there was another partion drive on the computer, called somthing like 'System Recovery'. I did something and it disappeared. I was wondering what are my options here. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on T400 by the way.

Answer:Slow speed on my Thinkpad T400

Hi,
 
I love my old T400 too
 
If yours was originally licensed for Windows 7 you can download a Win 7 ISO, burn it to DVD, and do a clean install.  Then grab ThinkVantage Sytem Update from the Lenovo support site (T400 in Quick Path, drivers & software) and use it to pull down the apps and drivers for your machine.
 
To find a legal in 7 ISO google "legal windows 7 download notebook review".  It's usually the first hit after the ads.  Pick the SP1 ISO that matches your original CoA.  Win 7 pro in this case.
 
Another option is to purchase recovery DVDs from support - or use the recovery set you burned when you got your machine.
 
[edit] Forgot to mention that when you activate a clean WIn 7 install with an existing Lenovo CoA, you will probably need to use the phone option to complete the activation.

Question: Slow Wifi Speed

Hi,

I have one of these wireless cards Asus WL-138g v2 and I have it running on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit the card stays connected but is painfully slow when downloading and using the internet. I have tried a collection of different drivers removed anti virus software, disabled all start up items and services but this does not solve the issue. The only thing I have found so far that does solve this problem is to boot into safe mode and then it works fine and is not slow at all. Anyone have any ideas on what might cause this issue?

THanks

Answer:Slow Wifi Speed

As always check to make sure you have the most up to date driver from Asus. Also check and/or disable any software firewall that may be negatively affecting the connection.

Another thought that comes to mind is... what are you connecting to with this wifi card? Is this your own network, or? What is the signal strength of this connection? Screenshots may be helpful here.

Hey guys, just trying to figure out if I need a new router or if I'm doing something wrong. I have an issue rtn12 and it won't do over 30mbps over WiFi which is really annoying since I pay for 75/15 internet. Just wondering if anyone could help. If you guys need any info about the router setting I'll be more than happy to provide them.
 

Answer:Slow WiFi speed on rtn 12

Make sure the device you are testing with has a wireless N or newer radio. Wireless G maxes out at 54MBPS with full signal.
Confirm your PC/Laptop/device is negotiating a link speed above 75MBPS. Try standing directly next to the router for all testing to rule out signal penetration issues.
Retest with a different device to rule out your test device as the issue.
Make sure the router is set to broadcast wifi at its highest speed, (300mbps for your model) some allow you to only broadcast at lower speeds for compatibility. Some wireless routers also revert back to a lower speed when legacy wireless B/G devices are connected. May have to disable support for the legacy speeds.
Update your router to the latest firmware to rule out firmware bug, retest
Try disabling all QoS policies on the router, retest. I've seen stock QoS settings adversely affect speeds on the entire device.


That should help narrow down the issue.

Answer:Slow wireless speed via wifi

You seem to be misunderstanding the technology involved. For one thing, you do not connect your mobile phone to your PC for internet access, you connect it to your wireless router.You only get 3G through your cellphone network (and only then if it's available at your location). You can't get 3G through your home wi-fi, that's a different thing altogether.I've no idea what your home broadband speed is supposed to be, contact your broadband provider.

Hello. We have a Compaq Presario 2100 with WiFi 802.11 b,g that is downstairs. For internet it uses our Verizon Fios upstairs through WiFi. The Verizon Fios has download speeds of 24 MB/sec when it is hooked up by wire, and about 10 MB/sec through Wifi upstairs on the Compaq and 13 MB/sec on a newer laptop. But downstairs unfortunately is a different story. On the Compaq Presario 2100 a speed test ranges from 3.5 to 5 MB/sec. But I think it is sporadic. It might be higher depending on random time.

What can I do to increase the speed downstairs? Running a wire downstairs would be difficult, and so would be changing the location of the computer. I'm not sure about this, but I thought perhaps there is a WiFi router of some kind that I can put downstairs that can get significantly better signal strength from my Verizon Fios router upstairs. That way I can hook up the Compaq Presario by wire to the 2nd router downstairs. Will that work? If so what kind of router should I get?

Is your current wifi thru a Verizon provided unit or a router connected to your Verizon FIOS modem (or whatever they use, don't have FIOS so I don't know)?

If your current wireless is G, going to an N router has been shown to provide a stronger, more consistent signal to G clients.

You can also get a G router and set it up as an access point downstairs and that may provide a more consistent signal to your downstairs client.

I have a Wireless N network card on my pc and i have a wireless N router (not N certified) and i'm getting a connection speed of 48.0 mbps. I believe this is slower than wireless G. My network card is Realtek RTL8190 wireless (came with my computer) and i have a Linksys WRT120N wireless N router. I found nothing when i Googled my network card and i found nothing about it other than drivers.

I bought early july a IdeaPad U310 in Texas, and then I moved to Belgium to study. The wifi speed was awefullt slow. So having read the forums, i rang the support in Belgium, and after long discussion, i sent the laptop for repair. Service was fine, but extremely slow, with no information what so ever of where the pc was, if it was received for reparation... anyway, three weeks after, so that today. i received it back and, according to the intervention report, the wireless controler was replaced. The thing is, the problem ofthe U310 is not a defectuous part, it is something more fundamental. I tested the PC in various speed test website.I have three laptop, a Lenovo W520, a HP Mini 110, and the IdeaPad U310.I used speedtest.net and brosdbandspeedchecker.co.ukthe result areLenovo W520: Download: 19.64 Mbps Upload: 1.99 MbpsHP Mini 110: Download:15.72 Mbps Upload: 1.28 MbpsIdeaPad U310: Download 4.75 Mbps Upload:2.1 Mbps. Now, the speed on U310 is not that catastrophic (not like the 0.3 Mbps I was getting) but still not great and rather much slower than the two other machines, and not fast enough to watch a movie in streaming, it pauses all the time. So what should i do? Send it again?  But is there a fix to the problem? Because keeping changing the wifi controller as they did did not fix the PC. The MEDION Repair center, which is in charge to repair Lenovo for northern europe (i guess) stated as well that the test "#winstress#" as been done. What is it? Yes... Read more

Answer:Is there a fix for slow wifi speed on U310?

The solution is a hardware fix maybe. See this huge thread for more information.

I recently decided to setup my hardware I bought few months ago.
I decided to get rid of the wifi router I was using(wndr3700v1) and setup a Uniquiti EdgeRouter lite and an open mesh AP(mr1750). I decided to use my wifi router as a temp switch only until I got a new switch. So I reset the wifi router,setup the AP and router and tested the speed and it went dropped to about 1/3 of the speeds I was getting with the wifi router. I tested the speed via Ethernet directly with the edgerouter and the temp switch and the speeds were great about 230mbps. I tried rebooting everything but that didn't help. I then tried to reconfigure the wifi router to also use the wifi part of it to see if my open mesh AP was at fault but no the wifi router speeds were also down.
I'm not sure what is the issue and would like some recommendations on how to troubleshoot this issue.
I know my wifi speeds won't match my wired speeds but I was consistently getting about 170-190mbps on 5ghz wifi and it's now down to 30-50mbps

I made a thread before trying to resolve this problem, I only figured out yesterday that if i switch to my onboard graphics, my wifi works fine. However on linux I can use my dedicated gpu and have no issues, it only occurs on windows, anyone know whats going on?

Answer:Gpu causing wifi to be slow and drop in speed?

Hi losingmymind

While I can't explain at a technical level why linux drivers work and Windows doesn't, I have to believe it is the electrical interference being generated by your graphics card. There was a thread where a members wifi wouldn't work when it was installed near his 10TB hdd. As soon as he got separation it worked.

I don't believe he posted back solution but suggestion was to create separation. Move the HDD to another location in case, route cables as far away as possible from hdd etc. I know moving a graphic card is really not an option but can you reroute any cabling associated with Wifi. As well can you get separation from GPU with antenna location.

Hi everyone,  I am new to this site, and new to laptops. I just bought a used IBM LENOVO T42 1,7GHZ 512MB 30 GB HD with XP PRO. I am confussed about the WiFi issue, as it seems like two cards are required (internal / external) to get wireless. I have been searching the internet trying to find out what external and/or internal card I need to buy, but have become frustrated because I don't understand the lingo. I bought my computer off eBay with this description:  IT ALSO COMES WITH WIRELESS CAPABILITY  TO CONNECT TO ANY WIFI NETWORK OR HOTSPOT AND CONNECT TO THE INTERNET  BY ADDING AN ADAPTER CARD. And the specs say this, Expansion slots: one Type III PC Card slot Can someone please shed some light on this for me, and tell me what to buy ? Thx, Scott

Answer:HELP ! WiFi Adapter Card for Thinkpad T42 ?

Hi Scott, I don't have a T42 so I'm shooting from the hip here.  Maybe this will give you something to look into while we are waiting for someone with a clue to chime in... From the description, you don't need to buy anything - except maybe a wifi router for your home network   Presumably there is an internal wifi card already installed.  The expansion slot is a generic slot into which you could install any number of things. You won't need it for wifi unless the internal card is missing or defective - and if that's the case you would be better off to just replace it and leave the external slot alone. EDIT:  I'm a moron.  Completely mis-read the part that said "by adding an a adapter card".  Sorry about the noise. Poke around in device manager and see if it  shows a wifi network adapter.  Look for Access Connections in the windows quick-launch tray, launch it, and see if it knows about wifi.  (This is where I'm guessing a bit - did the T42 have Access Connections???) A head-up: you are likely to get punted over to T61 and prior T series ThinkPads  .  This forum is for T400/T500 and newer. Z.Message Edited by zoltanthegypsy on 03-13-2009 06:38 AM

Answer:internet speed test showing heavily reduced speed on laptop vs smartphones

Hello there,
There could be some process eating up your bandwidth. You could have a look in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools\Resource Monitor about the processes network usage. Have you tried downloading a large file to check the speed you'll be getting. Sometimes speedtest.net isn't a 100% accurate. I've seen it show speeds of 80Mbps for people actually getting about 24Mbps or showing way less than the actual speed because of some weird Flash Player/Browser misbehaviour. Do you have the same problem when using ethernet connection/wireless? Have noticed if the speed is slow since you boot the machine or if it's slowing down gradually?

If you shut down the mahcine and turn it back on when docked it works, but after this point if undocked and docked again it seems to lose it's ability to charge via the dock giving the "plugged in but not charging" message on the power system icon from the taskbar.As it stands the laptop can be charged by the AC port on the back and as mentioned when given a power cycle on the dock.The above issue happens on several docks with different power supplies.The laptop is no longer in warranty and it is possible to get this sent back and repaired (paying for the service) if that is an option.This is greatly inconvenient for the user affected and is causing disruption daily.

Hello all tech guy users!!

I am having a really frustrating time with my wifi signal recently.
Here are the symptoms:

Max distance from router in which I can receive a signal is about 15 ft
Really slow upload and download speeds from MY laptop only.My fiance's laptop had a DL speed of 18Mps, and I don't remember the UL, but it was much better than mine. Screenshot to follow...
Internet will drop out while I still show connectivity to the router and then seconds later the router signal will drop out completely
Just now my signal dropped out and from my laptop which is sitting three feet from my fiance's laptop. Hers has internet just fine...
What I have tried so far:

Changed Routers
Changed broadcast channel on both routers
Updated the driver for my wireless network adapter
Virus Scan

Xirrus Wifi Inspector run. Screenshot to follow
Removed Windows' ability to shut off my network adapter to save energy
This problem occurred for the first time one week ago today. I have been getting by since then, but the hassle is getting to me.
Full disclosure time...
Right before this happened, I had an issue with my laptop where the battery was not getting a charge. I tested the power available to the plug and found the proper voltage there. I took the cover off of the laptop and found that a solder joint between the power plug and one of the wires had come loose.

Hi all.
I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite C50-A02-V running Windows 8 Home Edition.

I've never really had the fastest internet, but its always been alright for what I used it for... untill i purchased this computer. Suffice it to say the internet is... a little below sub par.
Heres a speedtest...

My phone, My sisters Laptop running windows 7, even my old 2006 IBM running Linux all are getting speedtests with Download speeds of at least 5-6Mbps from the same router, with at least 5-6Mbps.
And yet here I am, brand new computer in hand, with memories of dialup floating through my head.

I've been on message boards trying to find an answer to this for hours. I've changed the Wireless settings to not turn off the Wifi. I've checked Toshiba's Website and downloaded the latest WLAN driver. I deleted literally every last ounce of bloatware from the computer when I got it, so I don't THINK that's an issue. There's no torrents or security running either.

Basicaly I have no idea what to do.

Now the weird thing is if I turn the computer on, and do a speedtest right away, I'm getting a fast Ping and a download of 5 Mbps instead of the 0.6...

Any Help or ideas on what to do?

Answer:Impossibly Slow Wifi Speed, Brand New Computer.

Did you try an ethernet cable instead of wireless? If that works normally, read on...

I had a problem like this many years ago, it turned out to be something wrong with the drivers for the network card I was using. To fix it, go into device manager and find the entry for the wireless network adapter (eg "xyz wireless network adapter"). Right click on the adapter and select "remove". Reboot the machine. It should detect the adapter as new hardware and reinstall the drivers for the network hardware. Of course you may need to supply the drivers at this point if they are not available on the machine.

This is somewhat techy and if you are not a level 2 nerd you may want to get a qualified friend to help...

Answer:Slow wifi connection ThinkPad Edge S430

Hi, juancevi
 
Is there an Intel wireless card in your S430? If so, then I would recommend checking out  Control Panel ? Programs and Features. Here you can uninstall certain programs from your computer. One that you may find is called the Intel Management Engine. If available, I would recommend uninstalling it. This program has caused issues for me in the past and removing it has helped my WLAN be more stable, so it may help you as well.
 
Best of luck. Let me know how it goes,
Adam

My LAN speed is usually around 5100 via my SpeedTouch router ST585v6. When I am using my Laptop, an HP Pavilion dv6 running Windows 7 with an AMD quad Core cpu, not the fastest of computers!, I seem to get WIFi speeds as low as 1700 whilst at other times can get 5000.
The Router is only about 6 feet away from the Laptop! Is the speed drop a "computer problem" or a router one? If I connect the Laptop to the LAN the speed will always be at about 5100. My desktop computer is connected to the LAN and has a speed of 5100.
I have the usual security set on the Router.
Does anyone have any thoughts?

Answer:Low WiFi speed on my Laptop

I don't think there's anything wrong with your laptop. It's more likely to be a problem with wireless interference. If that's the case then changing the router's wireless channel number frequently works wonders so login to your router's admin interface and experiment with different channel numbers.

Hi guys, I have an Atheros AR9285 WiFi card in my laptop, and the other day, it just became very unstable with the connection and it is giving me very low transfer speeds.

I've come to think that a Windows Update replaced the driver in it, how could I fix it, or fix the problem?

Thanks alot guys!

Answer:Atheros WiFi card - Bad connection/transfer speed

You can search the model number online and add "drivers" with or with out the quotations; and there should be a download link in the first 20 results just make sure its a reputable website you're downloading from.

When you run the installer you'll often have an uninstall option if they're already installed. Un install and reinstall and see if that fixes the issue.

Other things to look for are you torrenting? is your cpu always at 100% (would indicate some kind of malware)? you should check your start up programs to make sure that there isn't anything starting up and running in the back ground.

Also where are you in relation to the router/modem? You'd be surprised how much of a difference a few walls make.

No, that sleeve will not fit the X220.You would want this one, ThinkPad X61/X60 Tablet Sleeve Part number: 41U3142. Here it is again from Amazon, X61 tablet sleeve at amazon. Keep in mind that sleeve will have to be taken off when ever you are using your tablet in Laptop mode.I only use a sleeve when transporting tablet, and it mostly comes down to personal preference.Hope you find something you like.

Hi all,

My Belkin N300 wireless router is now experiencing intermittent slow Internet speed. The router is 2 years old and has worked perfectly until last week.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I completed.

Internet speed test when directly plugged into the wireless router and cable modem: 30mbps
Internet speed using laptop wifi: 2 mbps then sometimes works at normal speed
Called ISP and they verified there was a connectivity to cable modem issue. Did a power cycle for modem and router. Then got full 30mbps from cable modem to ISP using direct connect to laptop.
tested other devices such as laptops and tablets, all experiencing intermittent slow speed
when experiencing slow wifi, switched to direct connect ethernet cable to router and got immediate full 30mpbs

So far all my testing is pointing to the Belkin router's wifi connectivity. I will check on the router's firmware since it has never been updated.
I also found a thread online suggesting disabling QOS on the router. But this should not be needed as it was working fine for two years since its purchase.

Any suggestions to what else I can do to resolve this issue?

Hey Guys!!! I have updated my G50-70 to Creators Update - Windows 10 Home Single Language x64 and ever since i have updated i noticed that my wifi speed has been very slow on my connection which is 90Mbps.When i open the status of Wifi it shows the link speed of 54Mbps and am getting around only 20Mbps Download and Upload Speed.So i did reset of my modem and re-installed the drivers and when i restarted and once again i viewed the status of my Wifi, it shows the link speed of 150Mbps and i got a full speed of my broadband plan i.e 90Mbps Download and Upload Speed.But at the end of the day, mostly i will put my lap on sleep mode and when i turn my lap back, it shows wifi is disconnected and when i try to connect it says can't connect to this network and finally i forget that wifi and again connected but again my link speed has been reset to 54Mbps and now am again getting 20Mbps Download and Upload Speed.sFianlly i tried to update the drivers using Driverpack Solution and IOBit driver installer and i got the link speed of 72Mbps which gives 55Mbps of Download and Upload speed but soon after the restarting of my lap, it reset again to 54Mbps of link speed.I don't know which one is causing problems to my WIFI Driver. Please anyone help me to get rid of this issue!!! Thank you!!
