1st problem) Sluggish, SLOW speed on my Toshiba Satellite L655, 1yr old, Win7 on motel/apt WiFi. 18-24Mbps lately & even when I would get 36Mbps, still sluggish, then they came by and ask to kind of hold back on downloads & to make it fair
Then NEW problem after buying a lil $9 802.11n booster antenna on Ebay, it didn't improve software wouldn't load, but started seeing that Realtek was working Turned out they got a NEW router @ the office.
2nd problem) BIG 4 me, "The security certificate has expired or is not yet valid!" Sites like, Paypal, Outlook, Hotmail, Facebook, etc... UNLESS I give up my security (Drop the "S" http) I just knew one of neighbors was doing more than games.... SPOOFING
HAPPY ENDING, hope this might help...
#1, HAPPIEST part, no SPOOF's I believe w/in this 20 acres
#2, My PC clock, & office are set to the right time.
#3, Office does have a new "N" router, but only it seems to only be sending out a "G"
when I go only on their WiFi signal, so at best, I was expecting ONLY at max to get
about 54Mbps's when I EVER did find an antenna (Hours on Ebay, NewEgg), being the
impatient person I AM, finally went BACK to Wally world.
BOOSTER did NOT work 4 me.
What did, a UNIVERSAL WiFi RANGE EXTENDER
Shockingly, I'm receiving a "N" signal, SOLID green bars & a 76Mbps speed
Don't ask me to explain ANY part of this, I just don't know.
Not ONLY can I watch video's & play games, I got away from buffering.
Next project, a CANTENNA, I want MORE speed, this is fun, & from my research, I should be able to get up to about 300Mbps... I know, some of you got Gz's or something
