Who's Driving Your WiFi? (by Tony Fortunato)

 

 

Short Answer - your drivers...

I put together this short video where I was troubleshooting my own laptop wifi issues when I realized that the Dell and Microsoft sites claimed my drivers were current.

Then I went to Intel and my drivers were in fact a few versions behind.  I upgraded my drivers and things got faster and more stable.

I've seen old Wifi drivers do the strangest things from; Blue Screen laptops with certain configs, cause performance issues and generate stability complaints, so I thin this simple point shouldn't be trivialized.

Enjoy
