I hope this is the best place to put this. For almost a year (I forget when), my computer stopped connecting to the wifi at my house. Everything I have tried doesn't work though, but I can use Ethernet and found out that I can use wifi ,but only if I am close to the router, but the wifi still isn't reliable. Furthermore, I usually use it on a room on the other sode of the house, where it gets absolutely no connection. Other devices work in that room though, so it is the laptop itself. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, using the troubleshooter, deleting and entering the connection again, updating the driver, and many other things. I fear that the adapter itself is broken, and it would need to be replaced. I just hope that's not it. Edit: Problem solved.
I don't know what it is but yesterday morning and night my wireless speed was acting up, the speed NOT SIGNAL kept fluctuating. But only if I plug it in directly through ethernet, it maintains a constant speed. It wasn't like this before! I use wireless devices from my bedroom, since it would be very impractical to have wires going all over the house. Plus my iPad, 3DS, etc. don't use Ethernet... The wifi was fine when I came home from work yesterday though, it also is working fine this morning as well! WTF is going on? Before anyone asks, I have tried different channels, and have also had it on auto channel scan. Is this due to failing hardware?
