Need Help with M17 R4, Intel Wireless N 7260

  • 1

I need help with my M17 R4.  I am constantly getting dropped wifi signals and extremely slow speeds, even though I am right next to my router and other computers/laptops that I use (that are much newer) do not have this problem.  Thus, I know its not my wifi signal but a problem within my laptop.  I have read EVERY blog and tried what feels like every solution offered up and I'm at my wits end.  I think I'm probably going to have to replace the wifi card, which is fine, but I need to know which one to buy.  It's either that or I really cry "uncle" and get a new laptop, but I'm hesitant to do that as I had this one built specifically for me, so it would have 4TB of memory.

Below is a list of my Network Adapters.

Thanks for any advice!

Howdy :-),

Would you happen to be running any of the Killer Networking software?  That software is notarious for causing issues with connections.  You will have full signal strength, but seem to drop every packet, so it is like you are not connected to the Internet.  If so, you can either just uninstall the Killer softare, and let Windows use its default drivers, or you can try ot update the Killer softare by going to: and selecting the appopriate download.  Good luck!
