Hi Everyone,

 

I've been having a really rough time over the past few days with my desktop connecting to my Wi-Fi, hopefully you guys can help! So, this computer is pretty new - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K0K9O3E?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00

 

Just bought it about 6 months ago and it’s been great! But ever since I've upgraded to Windows 10, I've been having Wi-Fi/internet connection issues, and it seems to be getting worse and worse. But the strange thing is, my phone, tablet, and laptop don't have ANY of these issues, they work perfectly! But my desktop, well, that's a different story.

 

So when I turned my computer on today, my connection to my Wi-fi kept bouncing from ‘limited’ (with the little yellow exclamation point), to normal. This was happening about every 1 minute or so. My tablet and my phone didn’t have any of these issues what so ever. Eventually, after trying everything I could think of, I re-set my wi-fi connection and that helped. (Restarting my computer 10 times didn’t!). This is not the first time this has happened to this computer, I can think of at least 2 other times as well.

 

Now that that issue has been fixed (for now), my internet connection has been spiking up and down for the past 2 hours. I’ve been speed-testing the hell out of it, and just surfing the web, watching videos on Youtube, etc. and it won’t stop spiking. (no issues what so ever with my other devices)

 

When the connection doesn’t spike, my download speed is 40ish/mb, same with my phone and my tablet. So the internet service is fine. This seems to be strictly an issue with my desktop computer, and I can’t for the life of me figure it out. Like I said before, I have had some issues in the past after I downloaded windows 10, but this is by far the worst it’s ever been.

 

I’ve looked through a few pages on this forum, and made a few of the recommended changes, such as turning off Microsoft’s PNP connection, and a couple other minor changes. But I can’t seem to find anyone else who is having a similar issue as me.

 

What do you guys think? Is it an internal issue with my computer? Or is this a windows 10 issue?

This is definitely a Windows 10 issue, as it is actually still a beta and some bugs still haven't been fixed.. I had the same problem, and with multiple computers too. Even more reason to go back to Windows 7 or 8 is Windows 10's new privacy policy. (Hint: MS can read your private conversations).

Look for a Windows 10 driver for your wireless card. Hint it won't be at Microsoft's site.

I updated my drivers but it didn't seem to help at all. Any other ideas?

Have you given your modem/router a series of thorough tests yet?

Or trying to change the Wifi broadcast channel or whatever it's called may help too, as your neighbours may be on the same channel.
