Hi! Sorry I'm not much of a techie person. I'm having a problem here with the internet. My laptop connects to the WIFI properly but when the PC gets connected, with the ethernet cable, to the internet the wifi connection becomes bad but the signal strength shown is just as strong. thanks! :D using a windows 7 os btw.

Are you talking about 2 separate computers or one. One a laptop & the other a desktop?

I am using it within 2 meters, same floor with no walls.

With the speedtest thing, tried it for 5 times with errors like latency error, request timed out, upload test error. But when successful, I got average 27 ping...

If you are within 2 meters why don't you just go wired? This doesn't solve your problem, but I think it is still a reasonable thing to ask. What hardware is involved? Also what protocol, B, G, N, ac?
