I have a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop (win7), internet through the wireless timeouts. Even though it connects fine to the AP/router. The computer had a virus (searchnu?) and I backed up the usual and restored the laptop to factory image.
Problem is after the restore the internet through the wireless the same still... and connected via wired and everything worked fine. I was able to update the whole system. Internet worked perfect, speed great. But the wireless still was pitiful.
Ping tests with wireless are interesting:
Google= 18ms Gmail= 18ms Yahoo= 1023ms 126.96.36.199=30ms Microsoft= Request Timed Out Bing= Request Timed Out msn= Request Timed Out
even though I get 18ms with google, the pages take a long time to load. Is this a root kit? is it the wireless card in the laptop?
