Connection problems

We live in an area with a poor signal but have no problems going online using mobiles or kindles. However, the laptop is a totally different subject. Whenever we try to get online, the message '... not responding' appears and it can take several minutes to connect. For example, it took over 20 minutes to register for this forum because it froze every time I entered my details and over 10 minutes to write this post. Is this likely to be a problem with the laptop or should we give up with wi fi for the laptop?

Many Thanks

Re: Connection problems

If you stand near the router, does the laptop connect quickly with a strong signal?

If so, your problem is due to brick walls, interference or other reasons...
