Vostro 3450 bad wifi signal strength

This question has suggested answer(s)


I just bought a new dell vostro 3450 and I noticed that the wifi signal strength is very low (in comparison to other laptop which is already connected to the same network)

I also compared it to other wifi networks with the same result. I also checked the internal setting about my Dell wireless 1702 adapter and everything looks fine.

I also disabled the windows firewall (if that is blocking???)

So what is here to do???

Thank you for your support.

    Welcome to Dell Community.

    Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.

    As stated that wifi signal strength is very low on the laptop. Please update the WIFI drivers of the laptop. Please follow the link mentioned below and download the network drivers of the wireless card. Please go to Device manager: go to start >type device manager > and checked under Network adaptors for the name of the wireless card installed on the pc.


    You can also try the steps mentioned in the link below to boost the signal strength of the laptop.
