Windows 7 Wifi won't connect on Samsung R480 Laptop

Factory restored Windows 7 image on Samsung R480 will not connect to Linksys E2500 WiFi Router.  The connection is very slow web pages take over a two minutes to load.  Samsung laptop is within 2 feet of Linksys E2500 WiFi Router.  Does Microsoft provide a registry repair to address slow Internet connection issue or Microsoft Fix It solution for this issue?

Tried updated drivers for - Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
Tried USB Wireless Adapter - Connection still slow
Verify Microsoft Security Updates have been applied
Firewall Profile has been configured
No Conflicts Listed in Device Manager


There is no registry repair tool provided by MS and other third party registry repair tools are snake oil, and in the worst case can render the sys unuseable.

Power off Your PC

Power off your router/modem

Wait 5 mins, power on the router, wait 2, then power on the Laptop

 

retest the sys

PS Drivers for your laptop are provided by your laptop makers support site, and NOT windows Update

Pal Thanks for responding I have powered cycled the modem and this didn't resolve the problem. 

As previously stated I was looking for a Microsoft specific solution that will address wireless issues.   Microsoft Fixit provides solutions for certain Windows problems.
