|i recently upgraded from 1 gig to 4 gigs of ram.i also installed a new videocard. now my wireless adapter seems to not work properly.it detects the wireless network and says its connection is excellent, but once i try to download something or get on the internet, the connection starts normally but eventually drops to nothing within a matter of seconds.my laptop works fine when used right next to the pc in question,so its something in the PC thats not allowing the adapter to work,or its just shot to begin with, but it detects the network..|
ive talked to tech support from Dlink and all they tell me to do are update the drivers(which i have for my adapter and the router). still not working.
the only thing i can think of is that it may have to do with BIOS? the power supply is more than enough to power all the new hardware additions.
unless its a hardware problem, since the adapter worked perfectly before the new memory and videocard.the only other thing i can think of is that my motherboard supports pci x16, but the videocard is pci x16 2.0
i dont know if that could create any problems.
please help im tearing my hair out!!!!
