    I'm looking for help with my wireless internet!
    I have a packard bell netbook and have had problems connecting to the internet for a while using wireless connection, it is connected but often goes off ALOT and so impossible to watch movies and streaming.
    When i troubleshoot the connection it usually comes back on, and ALWAYS comes back on when the option of 'repair as administrator' is given.
    The rest of the house connects fine wirelessly so it had to be something to do with my laptop maybe the driver im not sure not very good with it all!
    I have bought a dongle 802.11 n WLAN with the hope of it picking up the connection better, but it will not install!
    ''device driver software was not successfully installed'' appears everytime i try!

    can somebody help me out?
    sorry if this has been asked and already solved!

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver for the integrated adapter from Packard Bell's web site. If you already have that driver reinstall it in case the installed instance is corrupted.

    What operating system?

    What security applications are, or ever were, on the system?
