    You would have to check with the chipset manufacturer to find out what speed your wifi adapter can do. The router and extender should say on them or be pulled up online via the part number. The extender is showing as a 300n adapter.

    Okay I will check that later.

    But if that's the problem than it would be pretty weird, since it worked 3 days before just fine...

    Open up a command window and enter (without quotes) "netsh wlan show all".

    Without any further diagnostic information. There is no way to figure this out. If I had to take an educated guess. Your neighbor has dialed down the power of their Wifi Access Point, to keep people off of it.

    I also have admin rights on his Router so I looked and there was everything like it should be.
    I can access the router directly ( not trough the extender ) but there is the problem like I wrote at the beginning, I have no internet when the signal is under 60%. and I have no **** idea why it's like that.
    My other desktop pc with windows 7 have internet connection when it's even under 20% and it's still stable.
    I really don't know why windows 8 is like that, that it just drop the Internet when the signal is under 60%..

    Hm.. another thing I noticed is, when I'm connected to the extender and I can't use the internet, Windows 8 still shows me I have an interner connection and troubleshooting only tells me everything is fine, however, when I try to open youtube, Google, etc. I can see on the left down button what it tries to load, and it always stops when it says " can't establish a secure network " or something like that.

    I also can't use windows update because then it shows me I have no Internet. . . .

    So I have an internet connection but I can't use it?
    and like always, I only have this problem when I try connecting trough my extender.
    4-5 days before it worked just fine and I haven't installed something since then..

    thanks for all the help so far!
