Hey everyone,

   So I am new to this forum, but I really need some help. I bought a desktop from someone and it was working a-okay so I bought a USB WiFi Adapter because I can't get an ethernet cord to my PC. Also I upgraded the graphics card very slightly to get just a bit more gaming experience out of the desktop. I installed and updated all the drivers, but for some odd reason my desktop says I am connected to the internet, but when I go onto Chrome or FireFox it will connect very slowly, but when I go onto Steam it does not connect at all...anyone know whats wrong with my desktop? Any help? 

   Thanks for the help!


P.S. My desktop is a Dell Inspiron

Windows 10

Pentium Dual-Core CPU 2.70 GHz

Ram : 4.00GB

64-bit Operating system

Was it working for the person you bought it from?


Also, have you checked the wireless adapter manufacture website to make sure you are using the latest drivers?


Last, please run Minitoolbox and run a speed test.
