Odd USB WiFi problem

davefollmers
HI,

I was hoping that one of the technarati here might be able to help me solve a problem I'm having on my PC. I've got a Netgear 802.11N dual band router (an N600) and half a dozen devices connected to it that can access the internet just fine. On my PC I've been using a Belkin N300 usb wifi adapter that I'm looking to replace. I've tried 3 different new USB wifi adapters, 2 dual band and 1 single, and they've all had the same issue. They can connect to either the 5G network or the standard network my router offers just fine. They all read excellent signal strength, all pick up an IP address, all can ping other devices on the network and also domains out on the internet. BUT when I open my web browser and try to go to just about any web page the page fails to load. Sometimes I get a partial, poorly formatted page, sometimes I get a blank window. It's behaving like if you were connected to a public network in a busy area, where the signal is strong but the internet bandwidth behind it is poor and pages just won't load. Oddly, the original Belkin N300 usb adapter still works fine when I plug is back in, just none of the new ones do. It seems clear that it's a PC issue since other laptops and devices on the network are sailing along just fine. The PC in question is running Windows 7 and I didn't change anything on it other than the USB network card. No local firewalls or other security software are running. I've tried various USB ports on the PC, 2.0 and 3.0, and there's no change regardless of where I plug it in.Any thoughts here?

Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.
