View Full Version : GL551JX - Internet and Ping Issues

08-08-2015, 06:48 AM
So I recently bought a GL551 from ebay--new--and it really is awesome,
except whenever I try to play online on WiFi, my ping is in the high hundreds ms.
It's not really possible for me to get a wired connection or to move any closer to the router.

I tried: reinstalling drivers, changing wifi adapter power settings, doing some sh*t on MS cmd prompt.
I even bought a signal booster (Net Gear N300), its definitely better, but just not enough--ping is still very high.

I don't think the issue is with the router since my old pc (pavilion g6) works fine online.

I was thinking that maybe it is the wifi adapter that is screwed up or something.

Here's what I posted in MS community forums: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-networking/getting-issue-with-wifi-connection/c54b75e8-01ee-4f8b-a666-9ba772aaac42?auth=1

Any help is appreciated.
