I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook that's having some network issues.

I first noticed very slow web page loading. I tried reformating the system but the problem persisted. Now I'm looking at some issues

I decided to ping the router, and that's definitely where the problem lies. The pings to the router vary from 1ms to 1047ms, and it's completely random.

It doesn't happen to any other laptops in the house, nor to the desktops. Any help? I'm thinking a damaged wireless adapter?

EDIT: Also, it works fine when it's directly connected, pings always 1ms

Can we assume it happens when you're right next to the WiFi router?

Well I'd just like to say I fixed the problem, for anyone who may have similar issues.

I had to turn off a power saver mode under the wireless adapters properties, and like magic, pings were back to 1-2ms.

Thanks anyways!

Well I would, but the problem seems to have cropped up again!

It was working just fine last night and this afternoon, but after re-enabling and the disabling power save again the pings are very high again.

OK, well, again, have you tested near the WiFi router?

Or, how many bars do you show when it's slow? (Dbl click the little icon in the sys tray, lower right, the icon with the single computer with little waves radiating from it).

Hi bakedleaf,

Do you have the latest driver for your wireless adapter? If not, please download and update your wireless adapter.

It might also help if you can disable some Startup Apps running. To do this, click on Start, type msconfig press enter, locate Startup and uncheck unnecessary Startup Apps.

Also, do you have any P2P Programs running - kazaa, utorrent, bitorrent?

Let's scan your computer using Malwarebytes. There's no need to post the results of your scan, remove infection found.

Please let us know.
