Alright so.. Very recently I bought a new Wireless N router. A Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual band router. It seems to work great on every device I own except for my desktop. Which yes i am running via wireless. Wired in the location I'm in is not possible which is the reason for the wireless.
My old linksys wireless G router used to occasionally bog whenever I had about 7 devices on the network and I would notice a horrible drop in connection speed(not signal strength) on my desktop. Pings in games would go to hell and websites just wouldnt load.
To remedy this I would disconnect and reconnect to the network and all would be well until it happened again some point later on. This would happen at least once a day during prime time, like when people came home etc.
Now with my new router I bought it with the understanding from the salesmen that it would no longer bog down under load like my old one but to be very honest now I get connection issues on my desktop even when It is the only device on the wireless network. The network speed just drops down to 1mbs for extended periods of time and it doesn't help when I reset the connection or restart the computer it just seems to go away eventually.
I'm looking for any insight as to what this could be before I go out and buy a different wireless card for my PC which I think is the problem right now.
My current wireless card is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833555008 Its kind of a piece of garbage I guess but it was the only thing the store had at the time of purchase so I went with it. I mean how can you go wrong for 13 bucks? Also any suggestions on a good working PCI wireless card... wireless N capability with 5ghz dual channel etc. would be nice.
Thanks in advance
