Hi all,
I have a homebuilt PC running Windows 11 but it had the same problem on Windows 10 too. My USB WiFi adapter has a painfully weak connection on the rare occasion that it connects at all, however my phone doesn't have any problem connecting to WiFi and actually has a great speed. I don't understand why, if my phone's WiFi is excellent, that my PC is having so much trouble. Any suggestions? Perhaps my USB adapter isn't good enough?
Thanks for your help,
Justin

Post a link to the USB adapter. If it is a "nano" adapter then that is why. Those tiny units have no room for antennas.

I need to look it up but can't at the moment. Yes though, it's one of those $20 nano adapters. What's a better one that'd work yet is still affordable?
Thanks
