Ok, recently I bought a TP link adapter with an antenna on it because it would have better signal (because I'm 2 rooms away from my router).

When I bought it, it worked fine, perfectly even!

But now, it doesn't load webpages as fast as my previous adapter. It takes some seconds before, say, gbatemp pops up!
Now, I would automatically blame chrome, but then I opened task manager and simultaneously opened gbatemp, it didn't even receive a single kilobyte for a few seconds.

What's going on?

Two rooms down the hall would affect your range, that would in return affect your speed. GBATemp is being sluggish today, so there is slow down when browsing the site, you can check if other sites you visit load or not, long term you should invest in a mesh wifi.

yeah, temp has been sluggish for me as well. this seems to be the case for several people due to the influx of double posts of the same message. I'm assuming the member didn't think the post went through, because it was taking too long. and, temp was down yesterday for a while.

possibly nothing wrong with your router. the router in my house is in my room (upstairs), and I usually don't lose connection unless I'm pulling out of the driveway. downstairs -- it's fine.

    A bunch of different people I saw & laggy audio for online play is a common occurrence

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    @SG854 not only that look at how much you get on the sony side for around the same price

    game pass costs more but you also get a huge amount of games and they're not drip fed

    nintendo's offering was the worst deal but nobody cared because it was $20

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    now that it's $50, it's a really bad deal

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    also costing only $20 kinda excuses the poor online services a little bit, $50 demands better quality online

    they should've just offered a better service to begin with and charged $50 from the beginning
