View Full Version : Slow to connect to network

09-12-2013, 01:43 AM
Hi all.
I've got a Asus all in one desktop running Windows 8. I connect to the net via a wifi router which up till now has been good, always connected. Just after the latest window update (which i didn't ask for) I started having connection issues. The status shows that I'm connected but nothing happens. After a few minutes it asks me to connect, I always click the connect automatically box but it never stays connected. A real pain... sometimes it's 5 - 10 minutes before I can connect.

Any idea's.

Thanks Dave

I have no idea what the update was. I was working away on the computer, went off to make a coffee, came back and it started doing it's update. Can't even remember it asking me. Just thinking about it, some time ago when 8.1 was released I tried to update but nothing happened. This was probably the update finally starting! A bit late....

So any idea's on how to sort this out?

Thanks Dave

Why not use System Restore to go back in time before the update and see if the problem goes away, I think you can always re-restore again back to the point you are now if you desire or just re-update.

is it a Technicolor VDSL router from Telecom?
