I am just looking for troubleshooting points, because I have all but run out of ideas. The main floor of my house is 1200sqft. On one end is my media center pc (Asus 802.11g NIC on Windows 7) that is sitting on the lower levels of my entertainment center.
Previous my wireless router (DLink WBR-1310) was one room away, but due to logistics was moved to the opposite end of the house from the Media Center. Now there are two walls between my router and media center.
Throughput has been lagging since the move, but the last few days it degraded to ~10KB/s transfer speed on the LAN. Since my Toshiba Satellite was experiencing similar issues, I assumed my WBR-1310 was coming to the end of it's life.
Being a forward thinking person, I bought a DLink DIR-665 and a "cheap" NetCore USB N Wireless adapter for the media center with an extension cable to get the adapter away from the PC and LCD TV.
At this point I was erratically getting 3-4MB/s. Most of the time, it was between 80-100 KB/s transferring data over the LAN.
I am bringing the "cheap" adapter back tomorrow. Any thoughts on what could be causing interference (if that is the issue)? Am I missing something simple here?
Is it worth ponying up for a good NIC or should I just suck it up and run the cable.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
