    Major websites load, the rest don't
    « on: November 14, 2018, 02:19:38 PM »
    I just got a PCI-E Wifi Card (Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I) and after fighting with an "Error 10" on the device I finally got it to work. Now I'm stuck with the issue of not being able to access most websites. Only major ones like Google, Amazon, Youtube, Facebook, etc. work. When using Chrome I get an ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE error and when I use anything else the site just doesn't load and I get no error. I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64bit.
     
    Solutions I've tried:
     
    -Restarting the router
     
    -Disabling the firewall
     
    -Flushing DNS
     
    -Setting default DNS as 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 and 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.4.4
     
    -Turning off Ipv6
     
    -Trying multiple browsers
     
    -Cleaning the cache on browsers/disabling extensions
     
    -I've tried a few more that involve the Command Prompt but I can't remember the exact commands.
     
    I've seen multiple solutions suggesting that it's the router, but multiple other devices are working just fine on the same network, including a few laptops. I'm at a loss here, I've gone through dozens of forums and Youtube videos looking for a solution but none have worked so far. Please help!
     
    Also, I know ethernet is optimal and worth trying, but I'm in a position where ethernet isn't an option.

    Quick answer. If it were me, I would send the card back to the vendor.
    And I would instead use a lo-cost USB  WiFi dongle for wireless inside my home. These low cost things are now very good and Windows will install them correctly.
    You can find them at Amazon, New egg and Walmart. And other vendors.

    Less than $22 from most vendors

      Will they provide a solid enough connection to do things like gaming? I hear PCI adapters tend to have better connections, or is that only adapter dependant?

      You are mistaken.  :)
      Type N wireless adaptors  are Type N wireless adaptors. The fact that they use USB instead of PCI makes no real difference. The difference is psychological. The  true limit is the Internet connection, not the bus speed.
