Well, I currently built A pc that I am very happy with. So, to pinch a few penny's I went with a cheap wireless adapter. I purchased the Saberent wireless-G 802.11G pci adapter, Item Code: PCI-G802. I thought how bad could it be. Well, I guess for me it is real bad. After some issues with getting it connected and picking up a signal from my router. I am having some very slow internet speeds. And I mean slow, We are talking 3 or more minutes to load a single web page. I was trying to download some drivers for updating but just for a small file the wait time is ridiculous. I am hoping it is just some options that are restricting it some how on the computer. If not I will be purchasing a usb wireless adapter here in a week or so. Is there anything I can do with this? anybody who has owned one of these? Or is it just a horrible product?
No Ideas on this one? I found out a few things...1: It is most likely the cause of the drivers, but I am not 100% sure on that. I have looked around and installed more drivers then I care to count with no luck. The most recent I found being 2009 drivers. This gave me a connection, and I was happy but it was short lived. It seems that every time I get a connection and get on the internet, my screen goes blank and my pc restarts?
I have left the pc on and used it without the internet without this problem. It seems only when I connect to the internet, a short while after it reboots. Right now I am in safe mode with networking and it is picking up 2 connections I have in my house, full signal strength, and has not rebooted. So I am clueless to what it could be. I am pulling my hair out over it, and have tried everything that I know of. Any ideas on this would be great. I know it is a cheap adapter, but it seems to work good, once it is connected and not rebooting my pc. Something has to be blocking it/causing some type of conflict maybe?
Hi eibgrad, and thank you for the reply! I am using the internet now and it seems stable. I will see how long it takes for the connection to drop out, What I did was uninstall an app called Xfast LAN that was installed along with my motherboards drivers (asrock 880gm-le fx). I think that might just have been the cause for some reason. I will give it a good go and make sure. I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind and check them out just in case!
