Since I got the laptop, the Wi-Fi signal has been very poor while roughly 15ft away from wireless router (Linksys AC5400) with only a false wall in the way. All my other electronics that are much older get full strength signal. I have taken every troubleshooting step short of uninstalling and reinstalling the OS. The wireless network card passes all the hardware and software tests, but yet the Wi-Fi signal I receive on the laptop is one bar, maybe two- only briefly. To get full signal strength, I must be at a measured distance of 7ft. I reached out to HP support and aside from the troubleshooting, they can only offer to have my laptop sent in to get analyzed. Unfortunately, I am a full time student and I cant afford to be down without my computer 10+ days. Is there a recommendation or self help advice that would help me with this problematic wireless network card?
