Re: Wireless slows when AC power
I apologize, but I honestly can see no correllation between the two, Possibly you can enter bios and disable ACPI (power saving) since the problem occurs only while charging, The problem with this option is that the load will be heavier on your battery, Worth a try even if only to see if it has anything to do with your problem,
I ask that you reply here and let me know the results

Is it a wireless computer ? If it is wireless computer then make sure that it is connected to the wireless network . If ti is connected not connected to the wireless network then you will need to connect to the wireless network. If it shows it is connected then check the IP address on the computer.

Try removing the wireless card.Remove the battery and ac adapter first.The wireless card resides under one of the panel on the rear of the computer.Once removed start the computer again.Remove the drivers installed via Control Panel.Power down reinstall the card.Power up if windows find new hardware install the drivers you download.
Check to see if your Dell is fragmented. Go to My Computer, RH click on it, Go to manage. Click on disk defragmentor, If you see alot of red in the chart it is fragmented. Click the Defragment button and walk away from the computer for at least 30 minutes. It will max out the cpu and you will not be able to do anything on it. If it is a laptop make sure the power is connected.
If this does not work, make sure that the wireless and the wired connection are not running at the same time. This will slow down the computer.
Same problem. RESOLVED it by going to device manager (hold the Windows Logo key near the space bar and hit PAUSE) Click hardware tab, and then device manager. click the plus next to network adapters to expand it, then right click the atheros wireless connection and go to properties. Click advanced, then find the power save mode. click it, then chose turn off on the right.
did this and my wireless is working normal again. hope this helps.
1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.
if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.
Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router. Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location. If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)
Have you tried restarting your router? If not, try unplugging the ac power from the router, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That will usually take care of this problem. If that doesn't work, you can try going into "manage your wireless connections", delete your wireless network from the list, then reconnect to your network.
