    Try restarting your computer with the wifi adapter plugged in. If that doesn't work unplug the wifi adapter restart and plug it back in. Still doesn't work then uninstall the drivers (Restart if nessiciary) and reinstall the drivers. If that doesn't work 1. Try a new port on the computer, or 2. Throw the computer in the garbage because the build is ****.

    Processors don't help with fps... they help make your computer run smooth, quickly, and controls what programs do. The graphics card (in his case the gtx 1050) is what gets you higher fps. If you have a really good graphics card you're gonna need a good processor. Now i'm not saying an i3 wouldnt work, because it does. But an i5 would be able to run more tabs smoothly (given there is enough ram leftover to run more tabs)
