My new laptop (Acer Aspire Timeine 3810TZ running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) is acting very strange on my wireless network.
Below are the issues I'm noticing...
- The connection frequently drops. I see the icon change from 'full bars' to 'empty bars with yellow star (meaning no connection)' occasionally.
- Almost every website I visit (Firefox) hangs for a long time on 'Looking up www.amazon.com' for example. After a long pause, it finally starts loading the website.
Neither of these problems exist on any other machines on my network. I also have a desktop running the same OS wirelessly and it works fine.
I've run several Speedtest.net tests and the speeds are great (20MBit down/4 up). Results from pingtest.net are as follows:
Line quality: D
Packet Loss: 9%
These results are to a server that is less than 10 miles from my residence. The results on the other machines in my house are normal.
Any suggestions? This is becoming very annoying as I purchased this machine primarily for browsing.
