Hello members of Toms Hardware. I currently have an issue that I am hoping you will help me fix. Recently I have been seeing really bad network connection in games. I have no idea what the cause of it is and how to fix it. Let me show some background information before we get started.


    I have an AC Wireless USB Adapter
    I can not plug a router directly into my computer through Ethernet.
    I have an Apple Airport Time Capsule as my router (I need it to back up information)

Hi, If unplugging an plugging back in the usb adapter has not worked then you could try this. Go to control panel and find the option to uninstall a program. Find the adapter in the list and uninstall it after completion restart the computer. If the adapter came with a disc insert it and re install the drivers.

Hope it helped message me if you have any questions or if it did not work.

I like Mitchell49ner reply

I would just try to download the drivers from the web instead of using the same driver.

Replugging the USB adapter is a good temporary fix, but is there any permanent fix? Uninstalling the drivers had no effect and there has never been an update of the driver. I also forgot to include that I have the Linksys WUSB6300
adapter.

Do you know if any other devices on your network are also loosing connection? If they are we could trace it back to your router. But depending on the age of the adapter it could be loosing connection due to heat or damage. In my experience usb adapters do not have as long as a life span as a internal card.

Other devices aren't necessary losing connection, just getting to a crawl speed. My adapter is less than a month old so I don't think that is the issue.
