Hello guys, im not sure if this is the right forum to post on, but i'll try.

Im having a problem with my internet connection. I have a TP-Link Wireless Modem/Router. On my computer i have a "Basic Belkin USB Adapter", it basicly picks up the Wifi so i can use it.

My problem is that the Internet connection is very Unstable, it isnt 6-8 mbit/s like it should be, its 0-5 mbit, mostly 0-2. And it used be perfectly fine, other computers on the network are more stable, they dont drop to 0, they stay at 3-7 mbit.

But! If i use chorded internet, it stays at 7-8/s.

I have no idea what the problem might be, i tried uninstalling Avast, i tried using other internet browsers and i have tried turning off the firewall, ive also tried Reseting the Modem/Router.

So i dont know what to do, is it the Modems fault? Or the computers?

Thanks in Advance! :)

Judging by the reviews on those usb antennae they can be prone to dropped signals, overheating and sometimes outright failure after a few months. I had an Asus unit and even though it was regarded as one of the better ones it was no powerhouse. My router is in the basement ceiling area and it could barely pick up a signal on the upper floor in a two story. My Dlink pcie card is doing much better in the same spot. If you change the stick over to another computer is it flakey too? Might be time to try a better unit.

Well, the thing is i dont have a built in PCI card that picks up the wifi. The actual Modem/Router is hanging in the ceiling on the bottom floor, and it usually picks up 4-5 bars. In my mobo i have only chorded internet, so i bought a USB thingy from Belkin to pick up the wifi, and yeah, when i resetted the TP-Link modem, i felt that it was kinda hot.
