To be honest, I'm unsure of what to do now. I have tried everything to solve this- but I'll tell you what's wrong first. I'll do my best to include every possible detail up to this point.
BEFORE YOU ASK - Yes, I know this is a forum for BSOD, Crashes, and Hangs. However I was redirected here by another moderator, so please don't think I have no idea what I'm doing. He gave me instructions on how to report your problem, but it was specifically for BSOD, and I'm not getting any of those. So I wont do that.
It started about the 29th of august and my internet was acting really slow (just on my pc) for some reason. It also seems to just cut off completely. It isn't just slowness. It will randomly stop working all together, and act like I'm not connected to the internet, when I see my wifi symbol is still there. I have dropbox installed, and when that little green check does away, I know my internet connection was cut off for some reason.I try: Resetting my wifi adapter, reseting the modem/router. Restarting my computer, and trouble shooting. Right now it's still having the same problem.
It was a possibility that I was infected, but I know better than to open sketchy emails, or download fishy files, or go to weird sites, etc. I ran full scans with both Avast! and Malwarebytes. The people here didn't think that was enough and asked me to use Mini Tool Box and Speccy to see what was going on. They didn't see anything wrong with the reports.
Trouble shooting has given me false hope. Usually it is a mixture of these:
It will reset my wifi adapter, and that will usually fix it from my computers side, but it's still really slow, and will often spaz out and disconnect again.
It wasn't until recently I checked my netgear genie. The brand of adapter I have is Netgear, so I open it to see if theres anything there that I can do. I tried updating it, and nothing happened.
When I open it, and everything is how it should be, it looks like this:
When my connection is having one of its episodes, it looks like this:
For some reason it just fails to connect. It does this all the time and it's gotten to the point where I can't play any online games anymore because the lag is either really bad, or it drops me from the game.
Again, this is only happening on my computer. I'm not sure how to fix it. Apparently the last moderator who tried to help thought you guys could. So, please give me your feedback, it would really be appreciated.
