    Default Erratic and Slow WiFi issue

    Hi everyone,

    I have a strange problem that I can't troubleshoot.

    I have an old Dell desktop that accessed my home wifi with no issues. I recently built a new desktop system using an ASRock 990FX Extreme 4 mother board, an AMD FX 8350 8-core processor, and 16 gb of G.Skill DDR3-1866 RAM. I used some components out of the old desktop such as the optical drive and the wifi network adapter.

    The basic issue is that the old PC accessed the wifi network with no issue with its Broadcom 802.11g PCI network adapter, and the newly built PC with the same network adapter has erratic and very slow connectivity to the wifi network. It is running on the same Windows 7 32-bit OS also.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this issue?

    Thanks very much,

    Mike D

    Orientation of the antennas is different maybe? Assuming it has two of them, one should be horizontal, the other vertical. Other than that I really don't know ... my network is mostly wired, only mobile devices use the wireless here.

    Also, why are you running a 32bit OS? You're not going to be able to really use about 12.5GB of that new memory until you switch to 64 bit.
