moderated Problem with my Wi-Fi


Kevin Minor
 

Hi.

I don't know how easy this would be to do, but if possible, move the problem computer to the same room where the WiFi router is temporarily. This should show whether it's distance that's the problem.

Dave,
Try swapping the dongles, just to be that the new one isn't defective.

Kevin:

As annoying as that will be, I was thinking about doing that later, before I go to bed.

Hi,

I don't know if this has been already mentioned, but have you checked if the
USB port that the adapter is plugged into is in power saving mode. You can
check for that in your device manager

Agreed and now you have ruled out the dongle.

I have done that but, the problem stays with the DELL computer,
therefore, I am fairly certain it is a problem with network settings in
Windows 10 for that computer.

Hi again,

In device manager, find the adapter in the network adapter pull out window
and go into its properties and on the last tab there is a checkbox asking
you whether you want the computer to turn it off if you want to save power
consumption. You do not want the computer to turn it off at all. HTH

That is another good thing to check.
Especially if it is a laptop, this may get checked automatically.
