    I have a newly purchased TP-LINK TL-WN951N wirelass pci adapter with bad packet loss and the peculiar problem of having near full signal untill i connect to the router, after which it quickly drops to one bar. A ping -t durin connection shows that immediately after connection the ping is reasonable and reliable, but after a few second, when the signal drops the ping suddenly starts timing out every 5 packets or so. I have installed the latest drivers from the website and no improvement. Other people using laptops in the same room have perfect signal and my usb wifi cards work fine untill they overheat. Note that the wifi card also has an antenna installed which is placed on top of my monitor. Any help would be much apreciated :(

    On Topic: All i can suggest is if you have another computer try it in that or if you have another PCI slot try it in their if nothing changes i would suggest you get a replacement.

    please do not quote spam posts as that makes extra work for the moderators after we delete the spam to clear up the links in your post as well. You unwittingly help the spammer by keeping his links active

    Please just report them
    Thanks for understanding
