We understand that your PC uses the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 100 and is getting slow speeds when you move it away from the access point. Here are a couple items for your consideration:
- Try disabling Blueooth* in the PC, as it often helps with WiFi connectivity. WiFi adapters can receive interference from other electric devices, such as Bluetooth peripherals, wireless phones and controllers, microwave ovens, etc.
- Wireless adapters can get damaged over time, same as other electronic components. In this case, we advise you to check with the Computer Manufacturer Support, or its authorized service provider. Make sure that the adapter and antennas are properly connected to the system.
- The Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 100 is not supported with Windows® 10, so it may or may not work properly in this configuration: Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Wireless Products.
- The N 100 has been discontinued and reached End of Interactive Support, therefore, the support options for it are limited: Customer Support Options for Discontinued Intel® Wireless Products
Thanks for your reply.
I will try disabling the Bluetooth, might work! I'll come back to you once tested.
We will be waiting for updates, or in case you have any further questions after going through the previous recommendations.
Sorry Jonathan for my late reply!
The laptop doesn't have a Bluetooth interface, so disabling will not help.
We're going to replace the WIFI card to see if that will solve the issue.
I also accepted the first answer as this answersed my question. Thanks!
