    Hey guys, I am really desperate, I am trying for days to solve this problem so I hope you have some ideas.

    I installed Windows 7 via Boot Camp on my 2012 Macbook last week to use some programs that are not available to OSX.
    Installation went through easily and I installed the drivers on the USB Apple makes you download.

    So far, so good.

    After activating the internet, I start to notice that the connection keeps switching between extremely fast and extremely slow. Mostly slow, though. And then websites suddenly stop to load. I am still shown full bars of connectivity. Then, after 30 seconds or so, a yellow triangle with a black exclamation mark is shown over the connectivity bars and it says no internet access. After a minute or so, this disappears again and internet starting to behave normal again for another minute. Then the whole cycle repeats itself. I installed all the drivers for my router manually, so it cannot have to do anything with the drivers.

    All other devices work perfectly fine with the wi-fi, and even on my macbook when I switch to OSX there are no problems whatsoever.

    Please help me guys.

    Regularly you don't need drivers for your router. Access points / routers are standardised equipment that speak the internet protocol. Windows or the additional specific drivers supplied by bootcamp should be enough.

    Maybe uninstall the 'router drivers'? What router do you have?
