    What OS? Microsoft Windows then uninstall the drivers for your wireless network.
    Reboot the system. OS should re-install the drivers. This would rebuild the stack table. Still if you still have issues. Then something is wrong with the OS. Out of the box the OS should connect to your LAN and WAN without issues. Change the browser your using too. Scan the system for pest that mike be lurking and hiding. Free program from IOBIT Advance System Care Free will find stuff for you.

    Then it has to be the adapter that is faulty? Can you try another one? If it's onboard you'll need to buy one for your system.


    Or to play it safe you can buy USB wireless adapter if you have wireless there. Are you using modem with a router?

    Uninstall the driver, download a new driver from the wireless adapter manufacturer. I would go with those drivers first in your case.
