Wireless AC issue

Recommended Posts

My sister has a new laptop that connects to the home network but won't get any throughput. The wireless adapter troubleshoot gives and error saying something about no DNS server connection. No one else is having that trouble. It is running Windows 8.1 (64 bit).

 

Her laptop is Dell Inspiron 15 5547

It has an Intel dual band 802.11ac wireless card. Is that not compatible with a wireless-n router?

And now it's doing it on my PC as well. Causing my connection to drop off to the point that it just sits and does nothing for 5 minutes.

I'm now convinced, it's this lousy Windows 8.1 crap. My sister is on her own. As for me, I'm wiping this garbage off the hard drive and installing Linux!
