How are you connecting to the internet?
1. Wireless
2. Wired
This can have an effect on the speed. A wired connection is not subsceptable to any interference and wont slow down from it.
A wireless connection can be slow because of the router, other things that broadcast radio signals, other things that broadcast non radio signals (like flourescent lights.)
How are you testing the speed? Unless you go to a website that has a speed test program or you are running a speed test application, there is no way to know for certain that your speed is what you believe it is. Your speed can also change due to the amount of people on the internet and other things like equipment failure outside your house.

Limited connectivity


Limited connectivity (this phrase occurs first inside the WIN 8 OS) means, that you have connection with your router already, but NOT to the internet. Pls. check, if you have access to internet from other computers or smartphone connected via the same router.
If so, sometimes a driver-update for your D-Link could be useful.
Check also, if other wireless adapters are working with the same frequency, this may disturb. Try to change the channel or change from 2,4 GHz to the 5 GHz Channels, if the router & your D-Link Adapter will support this.
I had the same problem with my WIN 8 - PC and I had to change the (wireless) radio-channel.

So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.) Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.
Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.ScanMySpeed.com before and after following these steps.

I'm unable to connect to the internet using my linksys wireless-g pci adapter to a Netgear router. It lists the router in the wireless network range, but cannot connect to it. Suggestions?


Go into the network settings through the browser. Go the where you change the "Channel" the router is transmitting with and change that to channel 6, instead of automatic. If you can access to router but not the internet, go to internet options through the browser and go to the connection tab and uncheck the box that deals with proxy server. That box should be unchecked and the box for automatically detect settings should be checked.

Low connection speed


I understand that you are getting low wireless speed through the adapter. I would suggest you to upgrade the drivers for the adapter. If the issue persists, then please change the channel on the wireless router.

Hope this helps.

How do i change the "channel" of my wireless internet?


The belkin USB adaptor does not appear to have a channel selection option. Like most WiFi adaptors it scans and connects to the available networks assuming the security matches.

What you need to do is change the BROADCAST channel in your router or access point. If you are unsure how to do this I suggest you post the make/model and I'll try to assist you.

Ensure you use 1-11 as this adaptor does not support ch 12 or 13 wheras some routers do.

You may find the NETSTUMBLER prorgam useful in finding a free channel to use.
