Limited Wifi Connection Windows 8

Hi all,

Using a Packard Bell Easynote Te11bz on Windows 8. I'm having an issue with the wifi connecting. It stays on limited connection. My room mate has another laptop that works with no problem at all. So far I have checked to see the driver is up to date (qualcomm atheros Ar5b125). On the packard bell website the latest version is 2013 October, and mine was last done 2013 September. However I'm not sure how I can safely download the driver to a USB and install it onto the Packard Bell.

Thanks very much in advance! I've tried everything and cannot seem to get this working!

Cheers

Does it work on an Ethernet cable?

Well by my re-conning that laptop only works on 2.4 ghz. Maybe the router is set to 5Ghz so probably it would not work. Not a new router that you have got recently.

Either set the router to 2.4Ghz by disabling the 5Ghz or use an ethernet cable.
