Use Compatible Drivers
The problem in wireless network might be due to incompatible drivers. So make sure that you have installed correct driver for your network adapter. Check whether the driver version is upgraded, if not upgrade it. Once the correct driver is installed you will notice that everything runs smoothly.
Error in DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) configuration might cause problems in wireless network. User can disable the DHCP server and allow clients to obtain IP address from normal DHCP server. MAC address filters are important issue in network settings. MAC address filters contain lists of MAC address of clients who can access the Internet. If the network card is changed make sure that it is added to the list.
Wireless signal problem might be due to poor signal strength. There are lots of factors that affect the signal of your access point to deteriorate. This will lead to low network performance. Signal will be poor if any other equipment is operating at the same frequency as that of the wireless network. So make sure that all other devices such as cordless phones, radio controlled toys etc are at least one metre away from the access point.
