Dell XPS - Slow connecting to wireless network
Posted on 2016-09-09
I need your assistance with my laptop. Every time I restart my laptop it takes about 5 to 7 minutes to connect to my wireless network, not only it takes a long time to connect, while is connecting if I double click on any program such firefox, word or excel it also takes a long time to open these, the whole system slows to a crawl while is connecting to the wireless network.
Once the laptop connects to the wireless network then everything is okay, no issues like nothing happened.
I have reinstalled windows, updated drivers including Intel Centrino, windows is up to date. All other devices connect to my wireless network quick and easy without any issues.
Any ideas how can I fix this? Is really frustrating.
