I live in a large apartment complex with hundreds of APs broadcasting a single network. I also have my own cheap Netgear AP broadcasting my own private network.
I frequently have issues with my WiFi connections at home, but never anywhere else. The problems began after I installed Windows 10, so I think it might be a driver or configuration issue, and I need help figuring it out.
The best way to demonstrate my problem is
ping google.com. When things are bad, 50% of packets will time out. When things are really bad, the DNS resolution of
google.com will time out. I've already had the apartment replace the AP that serves my apartment, which has only done a little to help.
I use a Lenovo Thinkpad T530 with Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 and Windows 10 Pro x64. When looking at the properties for my wireless chipset, I see the following driver file details:
NETwew00.sys Intel Corporation 126.96.36.199 Netwfw00.dat Unknown Unknown vwifibus.sys Microsoft Corporation 10.0.10240.16384 (th 1.150709-1700)
Can anyone please help me troubleshoot? I just set
Roaming Aggressiveness to
Highest, hopefully that will improve things in the short term. (Also, does anyone know what the new message "Checking network requirements" means?)
