Why is my internet slow on my new desktop via wireless connection? Tags: Connectivity Connection Internet Wireless Networking Last response: June 7, 2012 11:40 PM in Wireless Networking Share dave_1792 June 6, 2012 10:54:16 PM Hello everyone! I've just had a custom computer built and I seem to have a problem with my wireless internet connection. I have a Realtek 8185 extensible 802.11b/g wireless adapter. My computer recognizes my house's network and is connected to the internet with a good connection, but when I open up my web browser it takes a very long time for the page to load and sometimes never does. The laptop I'm on right now is connected to the same internet and it is running just fine. I've uninstalled the device and rebooted to have the driver reinstalled but the problem still occurs. What can i do to solve this problem?! thanks! More about : internet slow desktop wireless connection drunken warrior June 7, 2012 11:10:07 PM Who is your ISP? what plan are you paying for?
