Windows 7 Connection Problem

Windows 10

Asked by: NejiTeletubi36


     When using my PC, I started to encounter connection problems. Sometimes when I was playing games I noticed MAJOR lag, and my fps was fine, so it was the connection that caused the lag. When I downloaded stuff, I saw it dip to only 500kbps and less. I know that it is not a problem with my wifi because I don't experience this with any of my other devices and the signal strength remains stable.

      My connection will dip down very low, and I don't know the cause of it. Is it the adapters that are getting old? Or is it the drivers that need to be fixed?

      Please reply if you can think of a possible solution. If you need more information please tell me.

Some information that might be useful:

Windows 7 64 bit

Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter    Driver Version:

Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet        Driver Version:

Please download and run Driver View and upload a copy of the report it produces to your OneDrive. To get a report on all drivers select Edit, Select All followed by File, Save Selected Items.Text file format please.



Please provide a copy of your System Information file. Type System Information in the Search Box above the start Button and press the ENTER key (alternative is Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information). Select File, Export and give the file a name noting where it is located. Do not place the cursor within the body of the report before exporting the file. The system creates a new System Information file each time system information is accessed. You need to allow a minute or two for the file to be fully populated before exporting a copy. Please upload the file to your OneDrive, share with everyone and post a link here. If the report is in a language other than English, please state the language.
