Apartment Compex WiFi Problem
« on: October 29, 2012, 06:20:22 AM »
Howdy
My sister has wifi in her complex and has a windows 7 laptop-she can connect but she says her bars on her laptop are low,does it get slower as more people use the connection?The other day I talked to her and at 4am she was getting 16megs but early in the evening she only gets about 1 meg.It seems to fluctuate.

She does not have a router-I know nothing about wireless so any help would be cool.
Thanks
Rod

It sounds more like interference with the wireless. Walls, windows and other electronics will do it.

She will notice that depending where she is in her apartment will decide how well the signal is :wink:
