Try updating the firmware for your router or upgrading the router itself if it's old.

Signal strength


Check with your service provider. You may be in a fringe area or receiving a poor signal because of interference. If your router has the option to add an external antenna that may solve your problem.

If you're connecting the device you're watching netflix with wirelessly, check the strength of the signal your device is getting from the router, netflix needs a strong connection and the download speed you'll need for it is 1.5mbps or greater. If both your signal and download speed are fine try unplugging your Netgear and your Zoom from the power for about 5 min. to refresh your connection

My wireless adapter says i have a good connection, but when I go to play games online my signal strength changes so much it makes the game glitch


Whats going on is that your signal strength from the router is good but when playing a game the green bars that you see are not that of the signal strength but that of the internet Speed. Seems the signal is there but the internet speed is not I would restart modem and router see if this helps boost speed you can always check speeds at speedtest.net to be sure you are getting what you are paying for.

The Mbps is all over the place jumps from 54 to 11 to 18 to to 36...why is this. and the internet is slow when this is going on.


MBPS will vary with signal strength. You can usually help by placing router and laptop closer together, maximizing signal strength. If speed is jumping around then connection is not too good.

ADAPTER not working


Check the distance bet computer and the Router.
Donot keep your router near television, microwaveoven or any radio active devces, it may reduce the performance.
Check the Antena terminals for any loose connections.
If possible check your wireless signal strength with another Laptop, to diagnose the router is working fine.
If everything seems to be fine, it maybe the issue with the Adapter.

Makesure your computer is not too far away from your wireless router andyou have a good signal. By placing your mouse pointer over the wirelessconnection icon, located in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, you cancheck to see if your signal strength is good. Anything less than a good signalcan cause intermittent connections.
SOLUTION:You will need to relocate your wireless router closer to your computer.

My DL-524 is downloading painfully slow. I have no problems when I use a wired connection through the same router.


How much distance (and how many walls and furniture) between the router and the laptop? Too much, and your signal-strength will be diminished, and the download-speed will decrease.

When the laptop is much closer to the router, does the speed improve?
