Hi all, I'm back again.
Been having wifi problems with windows 8 since day one with my PackardBell Easynote TK85. It's a huge downfall for me cuz I do a lot of video/ audio streaming.
I have a Broadcom Wireless 802.11N Network Card.
Before winows 8, I would generally get speeds of between 3.25mbps dwn and 4 mbps down speed.
But since the upgrade, I've been extremly lucky to even get 0.80 mbps down speed. Terrible speeds.
But when I plug my laptop in to my router (via CAT5 Ethernet cable), I'm getting my old speeds of 3.2 -> 4 mbps down.
I have done a lot of trouble shooting and it appears that the problem lies between my network card and my router.
On all my other devices (Other laptop, tabet, phone) I still get my 4mpbs down, so the problem is not the router. It's something to do with my laptop.
And funny enough, this problem started the moment I first used windows 8.
I'm guessing it's a driver problem. But who knows when Broadcom will update this.
Funny note to add.... When I am in my girlfriends house on wifi, I get 4mbps down speed on my iPhone and iPad and other laptop, and I ALSO get 4mbps down speed on my current Windows 8 laptop.
So is the problem between my ow router and the laptop? My router firmware is up to date.
ANY help is truly appreciated!
Many thanks, Jack.
