Question about Computers & Internet
Laptop brought 2nd hand. Still under warranty. Store says to uninstall WiFi driver. Done this and problem still exists...
If I use laptop by router it is five bar strength. lifting laptop away from router that drops to four bar strength. If i take it away to another room (10metres) it goes to 3 bars straight away and then drops out...
Store advises a ''full destructive recovery'' and then re-load from inbuilt restore..... It does not have recovery discs?.
Not tempted by that at this stage as it didn't work when re-loading Wi-Fi drivers before?.
Can anyone offer a constructive idea on how to get better Wi_Fi out of this Advent 5431?.
Thanking Everyone out there who takes time to help people like me who have no idea!!!.
You have to change your channelk type in your wi fi router.
For that access your router with following link
if you have belkin router
type user name as "admin" and password is "admin" or blank or "password"
then go to wi fi ->advanced setup chang channel type 4 ,6 ,11
change chanel type 1 by 1 and check signal strength.
everyt time save settings and restart both computer and router after save settings.
Thanks for using fixya.
