I purchased a new laptop recently (nothing fancy) and since day one have had internet issues. I get internet and I am using it right now, but it goes up and down. I will notice it is slow, then look at the connection and when I hover over it, it will show poor or low like this:
then usually go from "poor connection" to excellent when I hover over it....
but starts fluctuating again shortly after. At times when it is really bad I will click on "diagnose" on the connection and it will tell me my network card is being reset.
None of the other wireless computers or devices in the house are having the fluctuations so I assume its a problem with something on this laptop. The info for it:
HP 2000 notebook
Windows 7 Home (64 bit)
AMD E350 4Gig
The wifi adapter is a Ralink 5390 if that helps at all.
I don't know much about computers, but I'd like to try and solve this issue since it's only this laptop having it. Thanks for any time and advice in advance.
