    Thank to whoever is reading this.

    My new PC is windows 10, for the past weeks I have been using a Ethernet cable, until I decided to move my desktop to my room. After I finish moving everything, set up everything. So immediately I found trouble connecting to my wifi, either it keeps connecting and disconnecting or it will be able to get connected but with like a bar of internet. i cannot browse Google whatsoever. So I am wondering is the wifi card inside my PC is working properly or not. I saw on the device manager under the Network Adapter that I have an item called wireless-AC 9560, I'm guessing that the wifi card is working but I am not sure what is the problem, i cant even connect to Google with that 1 bar. My phone can connect with all bars in the same area as my PC. Thanks for reading... Please send help

    Most likely the signal is very weak. Maybe the antenna is loose or oriented badly or "hidden" in a corner or against a wall. Or perhaps there is an obstacle (even the computer itself) between the router (or access point) and the adapter's antenna.
