Desktop WiFi Adapter

Q: Desktop WiFi Adapter

Looking for what is the best desktop WiFi adapter, moving into a new townhouse and the extra bedrooms (where my office will be) does not have and network/cable outlets, so everything is going WiFi. My router is a ASUS RT-AC87U running Merlin FW, would rather internal (PCIe) but external is fine if the performance is there, would like to keep it under $200.

Most uses are gaming (so response time and stability is a big thing) and streaming from my home server.

Preferred Solution: Desktop WiFi Adapter

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Desktop WiFi Adapter

You could try something like this:
ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates - Newegg.com

There's no best for every situation, it's going to depend on the environment. Powerline networking may also be a good option depending on where the router is going to be.

Hi I am trying to get my WiFi adapter to work on my desktop.

I had been using quite happily for quite some time, then it just decided to stop working.

I have tried numerous things to get it to work...
Un-installed and Re-installed the drivers.
Tried to make windows forget all the networks I currently had.
Reset the router numerous times.

The adapter definitley works because I am able to see all the wifi networks around me.

I can connect to my phone when I make that a hotspot.

And when I plug the adapter into my laptop it can connect to the wifi easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.

I'm running windows 7 and the adapter is a Belkin Play N600

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

Hey all,

I've been away from the PC world for the past few years because I've been running a Mac.
I decided to get back into some gaming on picked up a Dell XPS desktop running windows 7 ultimate x64.
I bought a Asus USB N10 Wifi Adapter and it won't connect to the internet. It gets a limited activity logo over top of the connection.
Today I tried plugging it rite into the router with a LAN cable and still, no dice. Came up with an IP address error.
I'm guessing this is a router issue? When i run ipconfig in cmd prompt, it doesn't even have a default gateway?
Could someone explain what is going wrong here, and why It wont connect? We have 2 Macs, a PS3, some android tablets and a HP laptop running from out D-Link router.

Thanks for the help in advance, I really appreciate it guys!

System is about six months old. All wifi networks disappeared as well as any evidence in Win10 that there was any wifi hardware installed. Did all the normal rebooting of system and router to no avail. Since it was under warranty, took to the the seller.  Worked fine there and when I returned home. My conclusion is an intermittent short on the system board.  Is this a plug in module that can be reseated? I can't find any kind of useful system board schematic on the HP support site.

Install one of the adapters, make sure you have the latest driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site, and ...

What exactly happens when you try to connect?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

So I accidently bent my Belkin surf and share WiFi adapter on my desktop, and the internet cut out. I assumed it was broken, so I plugged it into my laptop and turned the wifi switch to off to test it out. Strangely, it worked fine. Then I attempted other USB ports on my tower, none of them worked. The strange thing is I can see all of the available wifi networks, but can't connect to them. I tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting, and reinstalling but that doesn't seem to work. The chip is fine, as it worked on my laptop, but it refuses to work on the tower.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Power down PC...while it off remove USB wifi adapter....power on PC. When PC has finished booting up, search in the uninstall programs list for any software related Netgear and uninstall it. Reboot and start the process again.

According to the system requirements for that device, it does not support windows 10, which may be you issue.

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

Hi, My laptop has a very weak wifi detection. Only when the wifi signal is very strong can it detect the wifi. I tried contacting HP regarding the same. They said it could be a loose connection with the wifi antenna. I have been waiting for the custumer service in my area to contact me(like HP promised!!!) for quite a long time now . Now I am in urgent need to get this fixed. I was wondering if an external wifi adapter would solve this issue. Mine is a Windows 10 laptop. Model no: ab030tx (pavilion). If an external adapter works, what would you suggest? (I am confused as a lot of products available in market only convert the laptop to a hotspot)

I just bought a brand new Asus K52F and when the laptop goes into sleep mode the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter & WiFi Miniport Adapter #2" fail. When i turn the computer back on i have trouble connecting to the internet, and the devices have error (code 43). I can still connect to the internet though. I have re-downloaded the drivers, rolled them back, updated them, everything but it hasn't worked. Any help would be sweet.

Also can anyone tell me what the white light up button next to the power button does??

A:WiFi Miniport Adapter/Adapter #2 Error

The virtual wifi mini port adaptor is used as a virtual wifi device so you can turn your machine into a wireless AP "access point" either with commands or the connectify software. The adaptor sometimes activates itself and causes problems, even when your not using it as an access point.

It should fix the problem if you go into device manager, go to "view" top of page, then choose "show hidden devices" which should allow you to see the mini port, disable the virtual mini port adaptor and that should fix the problem.

That little button next to the power button is a reset button, it's like restarting but a little different.

So, there are many articles out there that will show you how to use cmd prompt to create a wifi hotspot (eg: this article Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot)

However, is there anyway to do this with TWO separate wifi adapters? That is, use one adapter to connect to your router and the other to act as the router? Some articles seem to indicate this is the ideal setup but no one seems to specify how to control which wifi adapter is used to create the wifi hostpot in command prompt.

Thanks for any help.

If I can get the basics to work, the next step is to try to integrate a VPN so that I can basically use my PC as a VPN router (but with no physical ethernet connection).

There are several resons.1. The wifi signal might be too weak at the point where the computer is.2. Other device radiation/signals might be blocking it.3. Your router signal might be hodden (check EWS of router).4. Signal broadcasting might have been turned off on router. Since other signals are found on the computer, there shouldnt be a issue with your couputer.

Everyone's had the problem of wanting to disable the wifi miniport, or enable it to share wifi.

I have a different problem. I would like to change which wireless device the wifi miniport uses, as the external USB wireless adapter I was using died. I cannot see the wifi miniport adapter without that device attached, it seems. I don't even know if the wifi adapter even as options to select which wireless card to use even if I could get it to appear.

Is there a way to do this without having to resort to reinstalling Windows 7?

I am fairly familiar with netsh. No command line option seems to be available to switch network adapters for the wifi miniport.

It also appears that it will simply not switch to the only wireless network adapter detected, and I know it will host a virtual wifi network, I've done ICS/AdHoc before.

A:How does one change which wifi adapter the wifi miniport uses?

I tried the solution in this link: How to change default Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport adapter?

This did not work.

You should run this tunnel adaptor remover first. Too many of these indicates a driver problem and it will also ruin your connection if there are too many of those tunnel adaptors. This problem happens all the time. Click and save the zip file, then run the zip file and reboot.

You might also considering using a different driver for this network adaptor. If the problem happens again it may help to remove the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter using device manager as it's known to cause connection problems such as you seem to be having.

Using this Rosewill RNX-N180UBE IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter I get 10-11mb down @speedtest.com on my netbook and 20-23mb down on my desktop. Why such a huge difference using the same adapter?

I'm using this Netbook from tigerdirect, upgraded to 2gb ram, Running Windows 7 Ultimate x86

My Desktop is running

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
2.4ghz dual core
4gb ddr2 ram
gtx260

Using the built in Atheros wifi in my netbook I get around 13mb down so its no different from plugging in the rosewill adapter. Only when the adapter is plugged into my desktop does it blow everything out of the water. I just don't understand why, does CPU,RAM effect your wifi Speed?
 

A:Desktop Wifi Faster then Netbook Wifi

there is a possibility that since your laptop has a built wireless adapter it is conflicting not with your desktop there is no wireless adapter installed or anything that may conflict another possible reason is the chip set of you adapter is compatible with the chip set on your desktop computer that is why they work well together.

Hi,

My first post. I have a two part question.

I have a TP-Link TL-WN95N v1 PCI 300 MPS WiFi adapter. I can find no driver to work with it in Windows 8. Else where on the 'net claims were made an Atheros driver was on board but the only Atheros drivers I have is for Ethernet chipsets. I have got no where looking at Atheros.cz or the TP-Link Support site. If anyone can help me with a driver it would be appreciated.

The next part is can someone tell me what PCI WiFi cards will definitely work with Windows 8.

I am running on a wired network at the moment but not very practical as I wheel my desk into another room.

Thanks,

Robert...

A:PCI WiFi Adapter

There are very few drivers or network adaptors that are made to work with Windows 8 as yet. Most network adaptors that worked with Windows 7 will also work with Windows 8.

Your best bet for your TP-Link TL-WN95N v1 PCI 300 MPS WiFi adapter would be to use the Windows 7 driver and install it in compatibility mode.

You can get the full wireless N speeds of 300Mb/s by going into your routers settings and set to use the "802.11n Only mode" and also use WPA2 security with AES encryption as these are made to work at full wireless N speeds. You would also need very good signal strength and a clear wireless channel for full N speeds.

Device manager will occasionally show the wifi adapter, realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 b/g/n, but usually it isn't even there. On the odd ocasion it shows up, properties says there is a problem with this device - this device doesn't exist. Great. Realtek are hopeless as they seem to provide no support. I cannot roll back drivers, installing new ones doesn't work and system restore doesn't fix it. Can I replace it with one that actually works? Do I need a specific type? This problem is likely to result in the laptop taking an unauthorised flight to the bottom of my garden if not resolved as I am an angry ginger person who wants things to just do their job, it's not as if it needs to do much.

Which is better, a usb wifi adapter or pci wifi card, for a desktop.
 

A:Wifi Adapter

either is fine. I think you will find a pci has slightly more power,eg slightly more range, but also have removable antenna. Most notebooks have wifi built in anyway, so portability of the wifi unit isnt an issue. I'd be going with a pci wifi card myself, mainly because of the antenna options.

In searching the web for a wifi adapter for my desktop PC, I find both adapter cards to be installed inside the case as well as "dongels" which connect to an external USB port. Is it safe to assume that the technology & thus the performance would be the same, ie not dependent on where the adapter is installed?
I would like to connect via wifi to a router located about 600 feet from my apartment, so perhaps an adapter with the ability to add a high gain antenna might be the way to go?
Am considering Rosewill RNX-G300LX and Rosewill RNX-G1.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and check the list of devices to see if your wifi adapter is listed - expect to see it with a yellow tag which shows the system has found it but not been able to install the drivers for it. Double click on the device and then the driver tab; click on update driver and wait for the system to find a solution - I am assuming you have a cable connection to the internet as you clearly have access by another means.

I need an adapter to enable a LAN via Remote Desktop between my two rigs running W7 x64 Pro. I got to thinking about using a USB adapter, in lieu of a PCI controller, primarily for ease and simplicity, but have never dealt with either option before. Are USB adapters equal to PCI adapters, or is one better than the other? Which ever I use will have to talk with my ZyXel X550 router.

EDIT: The LAN will be operating in a permanent range of ~12 feet, going through one wall. I have no idea of how much bandwidth is required for RDP to function properly.

A:WIFI USB Adapter

Do not go with a dongle, a usb network adapter... I recently bought a Belkin USB adaptor and it has caused me so much stress and after two weeks is still not installed. My intial advice would be to stay wired but if that is not an option a wireless card in a PCI has a better advantage...running something as fiddly as a network through a USB port kind of seems wrong to me. Although I have no experience of network PCI cards I'm sure they beat the hell I had with my Belkin dongle.

I don't know for sure. All that I do know is that my PC doesn't have a WIFI adapter. But after installing the newest software version 4 and enabling WIFI on the iPhone, I now have WIFI access called "Jigs" whenever I am near my PC. I suspect that it is using my FIOS router's wireless for this.

About six months ago I spilled a drink on my HP pavilion laptop I immediately switched it off and entombed WiFi disabled adapter it in rice when I restarted it about a day later I would have left it longer WiFi adapter disabled but I needed it for my thesis all seemed to be well but if I were to pick it up and walk with it it would lose the WiFi connection and it would say that no connections were available when I ran the troubleshooter it said that the WiFi adapter was disabled I ran the repair tasks and it would get a connection If I moved the laptop again it would lose the connection again Sometimes the troubleshooter would find nothing wrong even if the WiFi adapter disabled laptop could not find WiFi networks when this happened the only solution would be to remove the battery and leave the laptop alone for a few minutes restart and try again Is this the result of water damage Do I need to WiFi adapter disabled replace a part and if so what part If this is not a hardware issue how can I fix this nbsp Thanks in AdvanceMichael

So basically my computer has stopped detecting wireless networks. It shows the adapter as enabled, but it doesn't show any wireless network; let alone connect. I uninstalled the older drivers and updated to the latest ones; but the same problem persists.

AND, I even tried it out in Ubuntu, and there's a similar problem. It just refuses to detect any network where at the same time my phone and other devices detect around 8-10.

There are high chances that my Wireless LAN adapter has gotten fried, but I'd just like to ask if there are any other steps to debug this issue before I give it to the company for repairs.

PS: I used my WiFi after around 1 month, at that time it worked flawlessly.
 

A:WiFi adapter fried?

I've seen that problem before (no networks detected), even with a healthy wifi adapter, and a simple reboot of the laptop fixed it on that occasion, although it's entirely possible you could be right about it being "fried".

doesn't the laptop have a built in wireless card -- sometimes they don't have LAN ports but I'm sure any laptop (inc cheap netbooks) have had wireless cards already FOR AGES as standard -- at least 10 - 12 years -- just ensure it's enabled.

I am a IT illiterate so be gentle.

Wifi is unreliable generally but hopeless since a recent Windows 10 urgent compulsory update. This prompted a bit of checking and I noticed that while I have a TP-Link WN821N V4 Wifi adapter, the device manager identifies it as a Realtek RTL8192CU adapter. Troubleshooting says there are driver issues I need to correct.

I have removed the device in Device manager and plug it in and it still picks up the Realtek RTL8192CU adapter

How can I fix this?

I have a Compaq CQ58 which I've used for about 18 months. Today I have not been able to access the Internet without using an Ethernet cable. I've done some 'troubleshooting' and this tells me that the WiFi adapter is disabled. I've been told that I must have pressed a key and inadvertently switched the wireless connection off. I've checked the start up guide and the short manual that I have but I can't find an answer to the problem there. I know about the Flight Mode key and I have checked repeatedly that this is switched off which it needs to be in order to access the Internet. Does anyone know how I can re-enable the WiFi adapter?

A:WIFI Adapter Disabled

Hello Petronica,Welcome to the HP Forums.I see that your wifi adapter has been disabled. I will try to help you with this.Usually if a device is "disabled", it's more then likely in the Device Manager. Go to Device manager on your Notebook, and you should see "network adapters" in the list. Click on the "+" and it will show all of your network adapters installed. You should then be able to right click on the adapter and "enable" it, or "disable" it. As your's is disabled you'd want to enable.Please let me know if this helped. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums.

So I will have a few questions coming up about wifi settings but here is one I'm very curious about right now..

Will turning this off or on give me the full speed of my wifi adapter?

I just want it to have full speed. I've read some of what QoS is and it sounds like it limits things so that certain programs and such can have access to more speed.. however I want my wifi adapter to just always give 100% full speed no matter what for every program at all times.. so why would I turn this on?

thanks

Why not try things both ways and find out how it effects your system? It's my understanding that you may gain a little bandwidth by turning it off but probably not enough to make it worthwhile.

Hello ryguy,

If you have not already, check in "Network Connections" to make sure that the Wi-Fi network adapter is enabled.

In addition, double check to make sure that you have Airplane mode turned off, and Wireless devices (Wi-Fi in 8.1) turned on.

Disable ALL encryption and any MAC filtering on the router to try to get connected. When you get that working add encryption back in, I recommend WPA and not WEP. If you must use WEP, use ONLY the hex keys, not the ASCII passphrase.

Hi guys, me again.

I'm planning to move to Windows 10 but yesterday i found my linksys wusb600n adapter (which is pretty good regarding stability) doesn't have support regarding new drivers since windows 8...i'm on windows 7 currently.

Pretty much i'm gonna need to buy a brand new one, i need an AC one but so far, despite i've been doing some research, all the adapters have issues.

I bought the linksys AC 1200 adapter last year, a completely fail, speed drops and disconections.

i think these 2 are the "best" on the market currently:

1) Asus USB-AC56
2) Netgear’s A6200

Any suggestions? complaints? thanks in advance.

Hi all,

i am currently running a Sony Viao Laptop (SVE171B11M) and i did a fresh install of Win 7x64 on the comp and i lost all my network adapters.

After going to the realtek website i found an all in one network adapter set for Win 7, downloaded transferred to laptop and now i have a LAN adapter connected and great. however i have no wifi adapter in network connections so i have been puzzled. after many downloads of drivers etc i have had no joy and i have no install cd.

I took a screenshot of ipconfig and the issue on my device manager if this helps anyone.

Any ideas and assitance will be most welcome as i must have the only non-wifi able laptop in the world!

Hi there,

I bought today Lenovo Y50-70, it was without OS, so i installed windows 7 on it. Now im facing
problem, where at internet access there are no available wifi connections. So i installed WLAN driver from
the Lenovo support, also didn't help. I don't know much about drivers, but it seems that under device manager
-> Network Adapters is wireless network adapter or something like that missing and im out of ideas how to
fix it.
Btw, under network adapters are only bluetooth devices and my wireless usb device.

Tried Fn + F5?

Any option to enable/disable WLAN in BIOS?

I m facing problem connecting to wifi from few days. All available wifi networks show poor connectivity and when I connect to any known network, for eg my home wifi, I get very poor connectivity even when I am sitting right next to my router/modem. The adapter also resets many times by itself. When I checked with other laptops in my home if the problem was with wifi, they are working with full connectivity. Plese provide a better soluton.

Hi!

I'm having this problem for last one week, after boot my computer just freezes. When I boot without USB Wifi Adapter the computer runs okay. I have 2 different Wifi Adapters, with both of them its the same problem.

I followed this thread [Solved] USB devices freeze computer - Gigabyte - Motherboards-Memory , and disabled usb legacy support. the computer ran fine with USB adapter after that (last night) but today morning again its freezing.

Problem started with TP-Link wifi adapter, now i'm using Linksys Wifi Adapter.

driver update doesn't do a thing.. I read somewhere there could be IRQ conflict, how do i check that?


PC Config - Intel G41, Core2Quad 8300, HD5770, 4GB RAM

Please help!


Thanks

So my only network adapter showing under device manager is the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller.

No matter what I do (numerous restarts, run as administrator, etc) I cannot get the WiFi adapter to download from the HP site.

I have an HP G6-1b79dx Windows Professional x64.

In Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections there "WiFi" is 'not connected' with a big red X
When I right click on that icon a menu comes up saying Disable
                                                                                             Connect/Disconnect (in bold letters)
                                                                                             Status
                                                                                             Diagnose etc
Disable works and then so does Enable, but 'Connect' does absolutely nothing.
 
Please help me re-connect this Qualcomm Atheros adapter

A:WiFi adapter won't "Connect"

Delete the Wifi profile for the device you are trying to connect to and create a new one. Does that help?
 
If this happened recently then doing a System Restore may help. I always recommend that any files added to the desktop after the restore data be moved to the My Documents folder. Any programs installed after the restore data would need to be reinstalled.
