    I'm having trouble with my Wifi connection on my desktop. It connects to the network and says there's an excellent signal but frequently says there's no Internet, even if I'm sat connected to the Internet on my tablet. If it does say it's connected it's painfully slow to the point of uselessness, pages don't load properly or don't load at all. I can connect to Steam maybe half the time.
    I'm using Windows 7 on an installation less than 6 months old on a solid state drive, and I'm using Avast antivirus. I've changed my router, changed my Wifi adapter which worked for 2 days then became even worse, run endless scans to no avail.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    I have a new laptop with Windows 10 and had similar problem at home - great signal, connected, but no internet. A friend of mine did a bit with the settings but to no avail. When my older laptop broke, I felt the need to do something about this one, I tried again, and suddenly it did work. Out of the blue. Maybe laptops feel intimidated by one another :D

    ...no sorry, I have no idea what to do with it. It's just that my electronic devices tend to do really strange things at times, so I sort of don't even attempt to get myself to understand them...
