 In the past couple of weeks due to formatting two PC`s then again by installing a newer wireless router etc. When the adapter icon on the tray appears it says internet connection #12 connected.

 I am confused by this because in the internet connections folder it shows 3 items,one is the active wireless,another is the disabled pc`s ethernet card and the other was my disabled standard router card for when it was the host pc ,where are the other eleven? how can I delete them?  and also delete the old standard router icon?

 I am wondering if this is why my web pages open slowly,,especially when using a wireless "n" setup,,router and adapter.

 On internet connection #11 when it was active using the same setup,,it was much quicker.

 I am using a "D-LINK DIR-625 wireless rangebooster n router and a D-LINK DWA-542 wireless rangebooster n pci card.

I suspect that you've yet to install the proper drivers for the networking elements, as the built in support within Windows is unreliable, to say the least.

So get the drivers from the motherboard manufacturer, meaning chipset drivers and other necessary files for that.

Also make sure you get the relevant drivers for the wireless card. The names of the connections are completely immaterial, it's most likely a driver issue.

Good luck

Hi redaxe,thanks for replying.

The PC is a month old and has the latest drivers,the D-LINK router is new and has the latest driver and the same for the D-LINK PCI card.

In fact the D-LINK devices have been uninstalled and reinstalled at least twice.

 Interesting to note that using the same wireless router but with a trendnet 802.11 wireless usb adapter,,the pc flies now.

Seems like the previous adapter is faulty then, or it could have been running off the wrong set of drivers, despite being marked for use with the said adapter. I'm happy to hear that you have your internet back at normal working speed Smiley
