The USB WiFi adapters aren't expensive and work well. You could also use an expansion slot to add another WiFi port.
Hello, I'm sorry if this is not the correct thread for this message but at this point I'm pretty much desperate.
I always kept my laptop on XP (... I know but it did work well) but since, over time, the system got slower I decided to reinstall. Then I got this wonderful (insane) idea to upgrade. And I installed win 8.1 and everything worked wonderfully... everything but wi-fi, that is. While firefox was ok, when I opened up a torrent client or jdownloader the wi-fi turned of after 10-20 minutes [the download speed went down to 0, but the wi-fi was still connected] and I had to do a hard reset as the system slowed down drastically and did not react to any commands.I tried lots of stuff, changing power settings, optimizing performance, new drivers for wifi etc, nothing worked.
So I decided that win 8.1 and me just weren't ment to be and installed win 7 home pro. And the same thing happened. The only difference is that I don't have to hard reset since the system is still responding after the wi-fi connection is dropped.At this point I don't have any idea what to do and if anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
