Wireless LAN low speed

I'm using Realtek RTL8185 54M Wireless LAN Network Adapter. My connection is always very slow however guys who use access on the same connection don't have any problems.

    my realtek RTL8185 slows down almost to a halt. Redefine wireless protocol, it works great for a few hours. Change driver to the same thing, it works for a few hours. Then it hangs again, or slows down significantly. Like yahoo.com takes about 8 minutes to load.

Try plugging the computer directly on your modem/router then check your speed. If the speed improves then big possibility that it's the wireless adapter. Try uninstalling then installing it again. If the speed did not change even though you directly plugged it then it means that your computer has a problem. You may need to optimize your IE or disable any firewall or any programs that uses the internet.

My driver detects wireless networks then for no reason doesnt detect any then i restart my computer then it detects them again. wat could be the problem?


Make sure you get the Realtek Wireless Lan Utility; if you're not using it now you're lucky you can connect at all.

When you get that installed, or if you already have it, find the file in the REALTEK install folder called 8185.ini (or 8185x64.ini on a 64 bit OS), delete everything in it, and paste this into it. It'll give you more control over the card and open up new options in the wireless utility.

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.

What is this DLink Express Ethernetwork card for??


hi nadeemsultan

this works exactly as like a built in LAN adapter to your laptop. You may use this as a backup for your built in laptop LAN adapter. Altough this is more useful for some IT professionals who sometimes require a two LAN setup. I have also attached a useful guide that if found on the product catalogue itself.

WHAT THIS PRODUCT DOES
Connect to your wired home network by adding a D-Link 10/100 Fast Ethernet Notebook Adapter to your notebook computer. Once connected, you can access shared documents, music, and photos from other computers in your network. If your network has a high-speed Internet connection, you can also check e-mail, browse the web, and chat with friends and family online.

hope this helps. please let me know.

My Linksys network adapter is very slow to connect


Ask them to review you connection speed to make sure your getting the speed you ordered. Linksys is usually pretty good. See if it's faster WITHOUT using the wireless (plug directly into the modem). If it is I can only think of two things... Ether you need to relocate your wireless modem to acheive a stronger signal OR if your signal is strong on your adapters end, you could always upgrade to a different wireless adapter that can handle faster conections.

Compaq laptop problem


OK, thanks. This is getting tiring eventhough staff here says they have this problem worked out, the wreakage was considerable. My ranking which is hard to come by at this level was decimated.

Did you get the Error Reporting service instructions on how to disable it?

Have you uninstalled Norton completely? Leave AVG in place until I get you the link to Avast.

I'll help you get ICS stopped. This is normally listed in the properties for Network, inside Control Panel. It would be listed as a service in the window. You select it and then choose uninstall.

Go ahead and rate this fixed so it doesn't get abused again. I only hope we don't run into this problem again this coming weekend.

Thanks.
WV

ps I'll be looking at what updates to apply next.
