      With using compute stick wireless wi-fi, the wi-fi signal is cut off- phenomenon occurs whenever I was downloading a large data like as torrent...this make me crazy!

      But, at the same time, my cellular was working good downloading with same wi-fi from same router!

      what's going on my stick?

          The onboard Realtek RTL8723BS wireless adapter is an SDIO adapter; SDIO is slower than PCIe-based wireless adapters. Wi-Fi speeds can be very slow, depending on many factors:

          If there are other Wi-Fi routers nearby. Router channel is set to Auto (and so is everyone else’s).

           

          How close the unit is to the router (router is in another room; signal passes through walls/floors).

           

          Interference from other devices (mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, Bluetooth devices, or baby monitors.

           

          You can try the following:

           

          Eliminate interference with nearby wireless devices (like microwave, cordless phones).

          Experiment with setting the router channel to a specific one, not Auto. Note: 2.4GHz can use channels 1, 6, and 11.

           

          Try hooking a second router or a router extender to your main router to spread the signal throughout the house.

           

          Disable the onboard wireless in BIOS and use a USB-based Ethernet adapter. Wired Ethernet is always going to be faster than Wi-Fi.
