    More WiFi Issues


    I'm a Microsoft Windows 8.1 user. I've had my laptop since Christmas. I've been letting it slide, but I'm starting to get a little mad. I can't play games without worrying about my WiFi. Other gadgets more perfectly fine using the WiFi. I get full bars when using my Laptop. I tried disabling my adapter and turning it back off, no luck. What's weird is, sometime it's lightning fast then five seconds later, it's crazy slow. It's been like this from the start.

    Please help, thanks.

    The ethernet hardwire works fine with the game? Just straw-grasping, trying to eliminate or illuminate something further up the food or power chain.

    More info about laptop make/model and wifi adapter would help also. Hard to provide any help without that.

    Yea, according to this those should be the latest drivers: Satellite C55-B5200 Support | Toshiba

    How about when you use the LAN cable and plug directly into the modem/gateway, no WiFi. Any problem then?

    Is it possible to change my WiFi driver/adapter to see if that fixes the problem?

    No problems, my desktop works perfectly fine connected to the internet.

    EDIT: Just tested my laptop, it works perfectly fine as well. It's very fast.

    Not your desktop, your laptop.
