    Okay then the driver is installed and it looks good.

    Was it working before you installed the Realtek UI.

    In the Realtec UI does your wifi network show under available networks?

    Lets hold on the chipsets. Or not. Same procedure for the one showing the exclamation mark.

    I think your issue is you can't really see the router signal.

    Can you move this device closer to router. If your screen shot is accurate you can't see the router. The 2.4 band has 8% signal. The 5.0 Channel 44, is 2%.


    On second thought can you move USB adapter to front of desktop, if keyboard has USB port try that. We need receiver out in the open.


    Dinner time for me.

    No the ports at the front of the desktop are messed up.

    But what i will try is moving this desktop closer to the router.

    I will do that tommorow as i need to sleep.

    Thank you for your help.

    About the WiFi card [not the other issues that have been raised]


    I also have a WiFi card with that RealTek driver - Realtek 8811CU Wireless LAN 802.11ac USB NIC

    I have also experienced the same symptoms as you in the dim & distant past [Windows 7].

    1 You did not need to install, and you do not need to use, that RealTek UI. Windows is perfectly capable of managing your WiFi. You could have just installed the driver on its own.
    - You seem to be using the UI then trying to connect using Windows. I have no idea if that can work correctly or not because it depends on what that UI is doing. I once had a <expletives deleted by forum moderator> Dell that came with a utility for managing the WiFi card and it stopped connections happening at all unless I was sitting on the router because, like yours, the received signal strength was appalling. And Windows 7 could not cope with it because that <expletives deleted by forum moderator> Dell utility was getting in its way.
    - I suggest that you uninstall that utility so that Windows is not being hindered by it.
    - Then disconnect the WiFi card. Then plug it back in again. Check the driver version - see Device manager, Network adapters, [this card], Driver tab. If it is the 2018 driver version then try updating it from within Device manager to get the 2019 version just to finish the job. I have tried the 2018 & 2019 driver versions and they were both fine. I did not try the 2017 one that was on my CD [but I have no reason to think there was anything wrong with it].

    2 Your comment above your latest screenshot is "That's strange... It stays its connected" but that is not what the screenshot shows. Connecting does not equal connected. Did you see it change to Connected?




    3 You will be connecting your printer to the WiFi/LAN network set up by your router for the computer to use. There are other, less convenient, arrangements such as a "WiFi Direct" connection to the printer, which would be explained in your printer manual.

    4 Is there a particular reason why you are delaying upgrading to Windows 10?

    Good news then.

    I posted about the WiFi adapter a few seconds before your last post [making my post easy to miss].

    I always liked windows 7. I and not so much windows 10.

    But i might get windows 10 sometime soon

    That won't solve this wifi adapter issue will it? If i got windows 10?

    1 I thought you had referred to that RealTek utility as the RealTek UI. So, by "UI" I just meant this -



    4 Is there a particular reason why you are delaying upgrading to Windows 10? - I was just curious.

    I have uninstalled the LAN Utility. I still cannot connect through the wifi adapter.

    I might move this desktop closer to the router and then see what happens.
