Slow connecting to the wireless network

When ever i start up it will take about 20 to 30 mins before it will connect to my wireless network. and if i try to connect manually it diagnoses the problem "authentication timeout" and the only solution is to wait.

i have a computer on the same wireless network with the same settings running fine and i am pretty sure the router settings are correct too.

any help appreciated

Try downloading spybot defender and running it.
You probably have spyware preventing you to connect to your network.
Spybot defender is free too.

My router takes 3 mins to connect to computer


If you have a large network it will take that long.

Also if you are using a Virtual Private Network or a Ad Hoc Network it takes this long.

A Cluster Server can take this long depending on how many Nodes there are.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Hi i have realtek RTL 8187 wireless adapter, and when i watch in my antenna managing program, connection is quality and signal streght about 80% THATS GOOD. always was good connection, but now yellow and...


somebody is accessing your wireless network and getting free internet service from you unless you had setup a wep security! if you have an un-secure network then anybody with a wireless adapter can access your network and access your internet free and drag down the speed of your internet connection.
however, if you do have wep enabled and there is more than one computer connecting then this will slow your connection down as well. please remember that there are some games and gaming sites that are bandwidth hogs and will slow down other computers connection on the same network. also watching streaming videos and gaming at same time can slow down connections as well.

My internet connection is slow. wireless home network setup connected to adsl.


is it as slow as when you connect it from the router(not the modem) to your pc with a wire instead of wireless? if so its bc adsl is slow in nature and you may need a filter adapter going into your MODEM first

It connects and but time with very slow and show


It's always difficult to troubleshoot wireless because the signal can be effected by so many different variables. Easiest thing would be to connect another wireless device. If that works OK then it's your computer or wireless adapter. If that drops out too then it's your wireless router. When we find out what's at fault we can find a more detailed solution if you' be kind enough to post back.

Internet connection/network adapter problem


If you are using the Windows own Wireless connection wizard (Wireless Zero Configuration service aka WZCSVC) this is designed to recheck every 20-30 mins for another connection this is your problem disable the service here download this tweak.

Then download and use the laptop NIC's own software to search for your Uni server and then connect using the WEP or PSK, this will solve your problem then create a profile in the NIC connection software and it will never forget.
