BizCom Support has found that Windows' built-in energy saving functionality can cause poor wireless performance. Below are our recommendations:
Set the Wireless Adapter Power Plan Setting to Maximum Performance
- Go to Start > Control Panel (Windows 7) or click Start and then start typing Control Panel (Windows 8).
- In the Control Panel click on Hardware and Sound (Category View) or Power Options (Icon View).
- Click on "Change plan settings" next to whichever plan is selected.
- Click on "Change advanced power settings".
- Click the + sign beside Wireless Adapter settings and again by Power Saving Mode.
- Change the setting to "Maximum Performance" and click OK and then Cancel on the following screen.
- Leave the Control Panel screen open for the next steps.
Disable Power Management on the Wireless Adapter
- In Control Panel click on Network and Sharing Center.
- Click on "Change adapter settings".
- Click on your active wireless adapter and then right click on your active wireless adapter and click Properties.
- Click the Configure button below your wireless adapter name.
- Click on the Power Management tab and uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
- Click OK and then close the Network Connections window and the Control Panel window.
This should increase the performance of your wireless connection.
