Linksys WMP110 network adapter
Netgear WGR614 wireless router
Embarq DSL modem
My son started complaining a couple of weeks ago that the internet connection was broken. Wireless connection is sporadic and extremely slow when it will connect at all. Other machines in household connect fine. Direct cable connection of this machine to the router works great also. When enabling wireless, the adapter connects to router, shows excellent signal strength, 54 Mbps, but websites load incredibly slowly or stall completely. All this hardware has functioned fine in the past.
Here's what I've done so far:
Went through the malware & spyware cleaning guide, cleaned up machine with Malwarebytes
Disconnected all other machines from the network
Released and renewed the IP addresses
Checked that driver for wireless adapter is latest version
Nothing has changed the connection problem - I'm about out of ideas.
