Resolve wireless Internet connection problems in Windows® 7
How can you fix problems with wireless Internet on Windows?
One common term between computer users is a network connection. A group of systems connected together in a network in such a way that they can share files and folders is known as a network. Each system in a network can communicate with each other and can also transmit data. This network that you can connect the system to can be divided in to two; wireless and a wired network. The use of cables to connect systems in a network is the main difference between these two network connections. The configuration of a wireless network is simpler than the other one and chances of issues are less. Here you can avoid faulty cable connection issues. Even this is the case, wireless networks are not error free network connections.
Different wireless Internet connection problems and the tips to fix them are discussed below:
- Network adapter issues

Network adapter issues
A network adapter is a hardware device that interfaces with a computer network. If you find any issue with it, then you can use an internal network card or try use a USB network adapter to get a better signal. These adapters usually come with an internal antenna. You can always opt for a card adaptor with an external antenna for your laptop.
A network driver is software which allows smooth communication of the operating system and network adaptor in system. A network driver installed should be compatible with your system network card and operating system installed. If the problem is with the driver, you might need to install the right driver.
Signal strength can be of low quality because of a faulty wireless provider or your antenna. If you get any unclear signal, you need to check whether there is any other device like cordless telephones or microwaves that are using the same frequency for transmission. You need to change the frequency from the settings of the device. You can change wireless frequency of the vendor from wireless settings. You need to change the settings of the channel from your system as well.
