Was wondering if anyone knew of a way to increase the speed of the wifi…
I have updated the wifi drivers from the samsung website, however the NC10 does not attain the same speeds as my bigger laptop.
I am a virgin cable customer on a 10mb connection, but this morning (peak) I got 2mb speed on my NC10 whereas my bigger laptop (HP) was able to attain a 6mb connection speed, with both test being run one after the other.
Can anyone help me improve the speed on my wifi for the NC10? What settings do I need to modify, if any?
Thank you!November 30, 2008 at 3:27 pm #172628adatay92Member
To help diagnose the problem – there are two factors that can affect the result of the speed test you are doing.
1.) The Wifi connection between the router and your NC10
2.) Your cable/broadband connection between your home and the test server.
If your wifi connection between your NC10 and your router is showing 56Mbps (it should be if you are close to it and have a Wireless G capable router) then it indicates the problem is probably not with your wifi connection. However if it is showing 2 Mbps then this is most likely the problem.December 1, 2008 at 9:35 am #172625
The wifi connection between the router and the NC10 is fine and the wifi connection between the router (draft N included) is showing at 54mbps. So I’m not sure why it is slower than my HP laptop.December 1, 2008 at 10:33 am #172627hefMember
theres a good chance this has something to do with the buffer settings of the adapter itself.
you’ll need to hit up device manager to see if there is a difference in buffer size.
bear in mind that signal strength is a massive factor in wireless networking and due to the small size of the nc10’s ariels, you may jsut be seeing the effects of the physical size difference.December 1, 2008 at 4:39 pm #172629riffraffMember
There is a “Power Save” setting in the wireless card that I switched off that helped my wifi speeds a lot (streaming). Not sure how it might affect my battery though. There was also a similar looking setting in the battery manager that seemed to have no/little effect.December 1, 2008 at 5:22 pm #172626
Oh please explain! thanks!December 1, 2008 at 5:55 pm #172630Richard TMember
If you run it directly from the router what speed do you get?
As it might be a browser issue or alike instead of your wi-fi
So test on wi-fi then RJ45 and see is there much differenceDecember 2, 2008 at 7:09 pm #172632AndrewMember
