Prodigy Build - Wifi Problems. HELP?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I have a prodigy build...
AND
I recently switched rooms with my brother, and since then, my internet speed has been awful. Before the move, my computer and the modem/router were in the same room, and my internet speed was great. This is what I use:

Router:
ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320091)

Computer Specs:
Arctic White Bitfenix Prodigy Case
Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131840)
Intel Core i5-3570K
MSI N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC (GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB GDDR5)
Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB
Samsung 830 Series MZ - 250GB SSD
Corsair AX 650 PSU
Noctua NH-D14 (CPU COOLER)

I recently made this prodigy build, and it's pretty quick. I use the antennas that came with the Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe motherboard. Before the move, I was able to connect to the 5G network. After the move, I only get one or two bars on the 5G network; therefore, I use the regular wifi. With the regular wifi on my computer, I only get about 2Mbps.

I also have a Macbook Pro, and when I speed test my Macbook Pro where my computer is (using the regular network), the speed is about 10-15Mbps. I can also connect to the 5G wifi easily with full signal strength with my Macbook Pro where my computer is. On the 5G wifi, I get 30-35Mbps.

So, what could be the problem? Could buying new antennas (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833993013) be the solution?

Anyone know the specs on the antennas that come with the motherboard?

Thanks for your input in advance.

Best thing to do would be to wipe and reinstall the drivers. That's the best place to start.

EDIT: New antennae might help, but try reinstalling drivers first.

Go to your mobo manufacturer's website and download the drivers. Then install them. Some people recommend going into device manager first, but I don't think it is necessary.
