  • Desktop Wireless Issues

    I'm pulling my hair out. My family has a refurbished HP desktop for general internet use. Before a month or two, we used a Netgear USB adapter that worked fine. Here is the info on that:



    At the bottom of the picture, you can see that it is connected to a wireless network within the house. I use a wired connection, and parents and relatives bring along their laptops and use the wireless without issue. I used my netbook today with no problems. Even with that, Windows shows me as "limited connectivity."



    I chose the IP settings, but ended up with this result:



    I have reset my router but I have no idea what to do about this. Any help or hints are well welcomed.
    I used the auto diagnose and got these options:

    Wait a second:

    So you are using a wired and wireless connection at the same time? If so, then choose the wired one (or the wireless one) as the "limited connectivity" is probably showing because of the wireless adapter. Disable the other one that's not in use.

        Sorry for the confusion. My custom built PC runs wired, the refurbished HP runs wireless.

          Ah. Well, try the new driver that JB4 linked to first to see if it helps.

          Additionally, assuming you're on a G network, in your router's control panel, set your wireless frequency to a lower or higher band (like 1 or 11) and try to avoid any of the bands in the middle as they are often the most congested and problematic.
