Need help please

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Lately my wireless connection keeps dropping or stays connected, but there is no internet. It seems to be happening only to my gaming pc, I got 2 laptops and 2 more computers that do not have this problem. Could it be the router doing something to my PC?

I tried reinstalling Win 7 since I wanted to do that for a long time anyways and it didn't help at all. I thought that switching Wireless cards might have caused the problem even though I uninstalled drivers.

What else can I try? At this point it's been over a week I can't game

Run a scan for viruses. Malwarebytes once in safe mode, once in normal mode, as that's the reason most of the pc's that come through my shop cannot connect consistently.

I reinstalled and problem persists so I doubt it's a virus.

It started happening after I put a new wireless card and now even with the other one I had still doesnt work. I uninstalled drivers before swapping cards.
I don't think it's the card since I put it on my HTPC and it's working wonderfully there.

Maybe reset router and reconfigure it? Even though I had just done that not too long ago

Have you lately moved any appliances around?
The wifi I set up at my in laws house kept having quirky problems like that...in the end it was their old 1960' TV that was sitting close to the receiver and causing some unexplainable interference. Once we moved the router away from the old tv, it worked.

umm my dad moved some stuff into his room (stero, old tv with antena) which is where I have the router. House has very odd/stupid placement of phone jackets so the best place I could put the router was my dad's room.
