I have a laptop. Formerly, it had only Windows installed (all worked fine). Then I formated the PC and now I dual boot Ubuntu 14.04.3 with Windows 10, and now I have a problem with wifi in Windows:
If I'm very, very close to the router (less than 2 meters of the router), wifi works well in both system.
But if I'm at more than about 4 meters from the router, wifi only works well in Ubuntu. In Windows, the wireless network looks available but when I try to connect, it doesn't reach connection.
That is, since I formated the PC, in Windows I have a ridiculously low wifi signal reception.
I tried installing all oficials drivers that I found, but it didn't fix it. The weird thing of all this, is that Ubuntu doesn't require me to manually install any additional wifi driver, and it works like a charm. On the other side, Windows requires the installations of officials drivers, that doesn't even work in my case.
Thing that I know/suspect:
- This is a software/driver problem, not a hardware (wifi card) problem, cause before I formated the PC, this didn't happen (and in Ubuntu the wifi card still works well).
- This isn't a Windows 10 problem, cause I tried Windows 8, and 7, and I have the same problem.
- This isn't a router/AP problem, cause it happens with other wifi networks too.
So, what can I do? Is there a way to extrapolate the wifi driver/configuration of Ubuntu to Windows?
By the way, the wifi card is
- product: AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter
- vendor: Qualcomm Atheros
