Hey I've been having an issue lately, every time I turn on my computer or connect to the internet it connects me to my WIFI box that I have, I have it mainly for the xbox and people that want to use wifi around the house but my computer used to have its own "Connection" if you know what i mean? Like the connection looked like a little house haha and I used never have lag or delay issues because of it, but now whenever I turn on my computer or anything it automatically connects to my wifi. How could I change it back so that it connects to my actual internet? My internet is connectected from the wall straight to my computer. Thanks!

So you must have both a ethernet (wired) and wireless adapter on the machine. If you right click on the networking icon by the clock> open network and file sharing, on the left>change adapter settings. right click on the Wireless adapter and select: disable.

you mean like network lag or latency?

 

Dont know of any software to improve it. Dont overload your own router/modem with many internet connected devices, dont download/upload torrents while gaming, dont stream media. You can probably expect poorer performance at peak times.

 

If you use cable then your on a node with other users, a couple of heavy users could drag the entire node down.  Make sure machine is malware free.

 

Theres really alot that can happen once the packets leave your modem and then its pretty much out of your hands.
