• Windows 10 laptop loses Wi-Fi every few minutes

    My Dell laptop is running Windows 10 and I have a Broadcom Wi-Fi Network adapter. Now, every 10 minutes or so, my laptop uses the Wi-Fi. This is not happening for any other device in my house. Just this laptop. I reset the network adapter but it's still happening. Any ideas on what I can do here?...

  • New monitor affecting Wi-Fi

    A week or so ago, I bought a new monitor for my desktop. Everything worked fine until recently when I set the refresh rate (I believe its 144hz). Now my desktop can't connect to my Wi-Fi (but it's showing). So when I decreased the refresh rate back down, the problem went away. Is my new monitor...

  • Is there any way to speed up my Wi-Fi connection?

    So, here's our situation. At our apartment, the Wi-Fi is terrible. We're in a cinder-block building and we think that's the biggest reason. I did a speed test today and our download speed is at 13 Mbps. It should be around 40 Mbps. What can I do to increase this?

  • Which SSID should I choose for my Wi-Fi?

    I'm honestly confused by this networking question. I'm looking at my Wi-Fi router and it offers two Wi-Fi networks to connect to. There's one that says: SSID-NETWORK. The other says SSID-NETWORK-5G. Which one should I use? Does one offer a faster speed?
