    Slow wifi and blocked site help!


    Okay so I've had a couple of issues with my Lenovo P585.
    The wifi does not work all that well...... It either switches between 2-4 bars infrequently or it takes 10-20 seconds for a page to start loading. My drivers are up to date.

    Recently it has gotten worse and sometimes it says I have no connection all together.
    My tablet and other computers connect fine enough and don't have the same 10-20 delay for a page to load.

    Also a torrent site I go to frequently has not been loadable for over a month.
    The torrents also don't seed.
    The site will only load on my Windows Phone 8 with wifi on and 4g off.
    This lead me to believe that my ISP is not blocking the site.

    I get this on any PCs in the house:
    Error code: ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED

    Not sure why this happens, every other page loads fine.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Lets back up on this. What is the manufacturer & model of the Modem or Gateway that you are using? Who is your ISP?

    Again, what is the model of the router? Also post the results of "netsh wlan show all" from a command window. State which Access Point is yours.

    Not sure what model it is. It's a little black modem.
    It's next door in my cousins house.
    We share the wifi to 2 apartments.

    I attached the text.
    My wifi is Majestic Dolphin.

    Sorry do not open text files. Post the information into a post. As for your problem. Read lines 2 & 3 in post #5 that you posted. That right there is why you are having issues. End of story.
