wifi connection weak and slow
My wifi connection is weak and my internet browsing is slow. Sometimes I lose connection with the Internet or I get a page not loading message when trying to surf around. Sometimes I can't even connect to the internet. My connection to the internet slows the longer I'm connected then I have to restart my computer and connect to the internet again. The signal strength usually reads "very low". The signal strength varies from 5% to 33% or so. I have moved the antennae around which seemed to help a bit. There are several wireless security options. The one I always choose is WPA-PSK which is what is shown under the "Site Survey" tab for the SSID I am supposed to use, and for Encryption I always choose TKIP instead of AES. Thanks for any replies.

What is the router make and model? How far away from the pc is the router? and what other electronics are in close proximity to the router or the antenna?
My guess is you are getting interference from surrounding electronics, or distance. Have you tried changing the wireless channel on both the router and the wifi antenna?

Shouldn't advertising be illegal on this site? Isn't people helping one another free of charge just to help each other and the free flow of information the whole point of forums? I don't like your clever marketing. If you have the answers just post them for free or get lost.
Yes 333zzz, you have correctly identified imicrosurf as a CTH Terms Of Service-breaching spammer.
Unsurprisingly, it is posted from an Indian IP address.
We can all safely ignore it's posts.
maDef has however asked a couple of questions to further progress your questions.
All other tenants in my building get a strong internet connection with no complaints. I don't know if they are using the same antenna as I am using because they use laptops and I use a desktop PC. The router is upstairs about twenty yards from my computer. I don't use any electronics besides my computer. There is a large screen tv next to the router, but whatever electronics are next to the router is probably irrelevant because everyone else has a strong connection to the internet. When I start my computer a little window pops up that says "The adapter is not present". I don't think this window pops up every time I start my computer. I did not ask to change the wireless channel on either the router or antenna because no one else is having problems. I moved the antenna to the windowsill which made a big improvement. Now the signal strength is almost always in the "good" range from around 25-40% whereas before the signal was almost always in the "poor" range. The longer I am connected to the internet the weaker it gets, but from what I remember the signal strength still reads in the "good" range when the connection weakens at least sometimes. Thanks.
