Computer has been running really slow (which may be a concurrent problem or its own) and internet has been even slower. Without the ethernet cable, the computer recognizes the network and connects but receives less than 1 bar of signal. With ethernet cable, the connection is about 2 bars of signal. I don't have any idea, open to suggestions.

Hello fireflyfemme, and :welcome:



Please provide us with some additional details to help us get started on the troubleshooting:

1) Laptop?  Brand/Model?

2) Has it ever worked better/ran faster?

3) If so, how long has this issue been happening?

4) Did anything change right before the problem occurred?   (update drivers, hardware/software installation, etc.)

Are you on Windows 7? If so give this a try...
Go to start then type cmd in the search field and in the results right click on cmd, select run as administrator and enter these commands

netsh int ip reset reset.log

netsh int tcp show global

netsh int tcp set global chimney=enabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp

Then reboot
