Wifi Internet to my new laptop is slow

Question: Wifi Internet to my new laptop is slow

Hello-

I just bought an alienware M18x, and set it up a few days ago. To my knowledge, all of the drivers are up to date. Yet my internet is still slow (about half the time). I run a speed test, and it says my download speed is 0 mbps for a few moments, then it skyrockets and averages out to about 8. The upload speed is more consistent, but only at 0.3 mbps. I have centurylink at up to 12, and they've told me that the connection itself is fine. Encryption type is set to TKIP, as this helped before (though it's slow regardless). I can post my dxdiag if necessary. Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Wifi Internet to my new laptop is slow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Wifi Internet to my new laptop is slow

do you have other PCs on the router and do they work OK ?
all of the drivers are up to date.Click to expand...

sometimes you need to actually update the driver by downloading the driver and installing , rather than just doing an update

also try

Uninstall and allow windows to re-install the adapter and Driver
I would goto device manager and right click on the adapter and uninstall/remove and then restart the PC and let windows re-detect the hardware and reinstall the driver

I just bought this laptop about a month and a half ago, and a few weeks ago I noticed the Wifi is slow when my laptop is not plugged in. I looked up the issue and changed my power saver settings so that the wifi would have high performance even when not plugged in to the power source. This seemed to work for a couple days, but now it runs slow again when not plugged in. I went back into the settings to make sure they didn't revert to default, but everything is as I changed it and the problem persists. My internet is SUPER slow when my laptop is not plugged in and works perfectly fine when it is plugged in. I have been unable to find anyone with a similar issue and there are no other settings that pertain to my internet use that I can change to affect any outcome. Is anyone else having similar issues? Is there a fix for this? I don't like the idea of having to keep my laptop plugged in all the time for internet use. That kind of defeats the purpose of having  a portable computer.

Hello @SupaBloo, Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More. I understand that the WiFi internet is slow when the notebook is plugged in, and I would be happy to help you! To increase the speed and efficiency of your wireless browsing, I recommend following this document on Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8). This should help run a diagnostic on your system using the Network and Internet Troubleshooter, as well as steps to keep your system on the wireless network. Additionally, I also suggest following the steps below to ensure your power management settings are not interfering withyour network connection: 1. Open DEVICE MANAGER2. Open up NETWORK ADAPTERS3. Right click on the WiFi Adapter for the pc and left click on PROPERTIES4. Click on POWER MANAGEMENT at the top.5.

Hello,
I have a 2011 Asus k53sv laptop with an i7 processor and 8 gigs of ram. I recently upgraded my wifi card because I had an old centrino 100-n card. I upgraded to an intel 7260ac in order to get better speeds in general. Currently my ISP is giving me 100mgbs download and 20 mgb upload. On my girlfriends newer laptop she is getting around 75 mgb download on speedtest.net, however, when I try speedtest on the same network using my laptop, I max out at 20 mgbs. These tests are done one right after another so bandwidth issues aren't the problem. I have all of the correct drivers for this card installed so I don't think that is the issue either. Any ideas on how to fix this on my laptop?
Thanks in advance!

My desktop's (winxp home sp3) internet connection, connected via cable to our router, is very slow at the moment, to the extent where it downloads only kbs per minute. I've tried:
different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera... even IE)
disabling/removing/reinstalling firewall (PC tools plus), antivirus (avast) and program startup blocker (gogo data toolbar)
checking for spy/malware (Spybot S&D)
renewing ip address
system restore to earlier point
uninstall network adapter drivers/reboot install
different cable to router
with no success.

However my gf's laptop pc connecting via wifi to the same router has connectivity as usual.

Here are all the details I can think to provide - any suggestions to fix the problem, up to and including full XP reinstall, are welcome.

Please give detailed instruction - I'm familiar enough with XP and PCs in general, but lack detailed knowledge in this area.

Answer:XP: very slow internet for desktop via wire, as normal on laptop via wifi - help?

I don't see how the gf laptop is fine on WiFi when you have latency from the router unless she's on a totally different WiFi network, check the name of the router she's on, also do a speed test without the router and see if you still get kb instead of mbps,

This can be a number of things, how old is your router, if you have other WiFi devices hook them up to your router test the speed, hardware the gf laptop to the router see if its still fine. If it turns out to be your pc you may have a bad nic or need to reset something in the operating system.

Hey,
I can't get my head around this: on my desktop were internet has always been working fine has started to be really really slow (I can't navegate). I have tried repairing the network, deleting temp's, restarting the router, changing my MAC... nothing seems to do the trick. I suspect something is blocking my system. I have xp SP3 on my desktop and internet runs flawlessly on linux on my portable. I'm really close on changing OS forever (it's a pity I'm a gamer).

Here is my HJT log:

Although I am connected to our wireless network on the Folio 13, there is no internet connection. I can, however, connect to the internet via Wifi on two other household laptops, both of them HP, so I believe the problem is with the Folio itself. I can also connect to other computers on the network on the Folio, but something is preventing it from getting on the internet. I can only get the internet via hardwired ethernet connection on the Folio. I have tried the following fixes, multiple times, without success: -Run the Windows troubleshooter for Internet/Network. It says the connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. (But not on other wifi computers here--works fine.)-Reboot/Reset the modem.-Disable/Renable the wifi adapter (Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030)-Update wifi adapter driver (it says driver is up to date)-Uninstall/reinstall wifi adapter-Remove Wifi Network from list of available networks; reboot, add this network back in-Roll back all Windows updates from the past month-Searched self-help forums for a possible solution And yes, the wifi keyboard light is blue, not orange. Can someone help please?

I've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

ipconfig results are posted below. Images of Xirrus (1) and its connection test (3) are attached. Any help is very much appreciated!

I just bought a Samsung Series 7 laptop. Really happy with it except one thing...which is pretty major I think!
It connects to my WiFi router fine, but in my bedroom, it is really slow. Works much better in other rooms in the house which are closer to the router. My old Laptop (a Sony) works fine on WiFi in the bedroom...so I think its not the WiFi signal range that is a problem.
Anyone have an ideas how I can improve the speed of the connection? I don't really want to be only using the laptop in the front room! Will Changing the channel on the router help?
Let me know if you need more info..sorry Im not very technical so keep your replies simple :)

Answer:Slow WiFi on new Laptop

Last month I also bought one of these laptops and had similar issues; if the laptop was more than a few feet away from the router the connection dropped and the laptop reported no networks within range. Despite many hours in trying to resolve the issue to no effect I contacted Samsung helpline and they told me to take it back for a replacement as there was a fault with the laptop. I also carried out some research and this is a well known problem with this series; I took it back and swapped it over for a HP Pavilion g6 which is absolutely fine.
Hope this helps.

I am experiencing really slow wifi on my laptop. I have the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6235 wifi card in this laptop and running Windows 7 64bit.

When I am close to the router I have no problem, but when about 12 meters away at my desk, my internet speed drops to snail pace even though I have 4/5 bar wifi signal. I have an HTC One, Google Nexus 7, another laptop all working absolutely fine from the same location

I have updated to the latest drivers, I have ran a deep virus scan, I have changed the Wifi channels on the router, and currently using channel 1. Nothing has had any effect. I'm looking for some ideas. Can anyone help?

Answer:Slow internet connection via WIFI

Did not need the IPConfig info. Why are you also downloading updates from some unknown third party website? You most likely have downloading sketchy updates, that is causing your problems.

If you want to update software. Let the software update from the software manufacturer site that created the software. Using third party sites can allow you to infect your computer.

Hi all.

ok, this is my first post so hello to all.
i have ther following.

TP link router pre N 150 mbps and a TP link WIFI dongle also 150mbps.
I have a Virgin 50 meg internet connection.

When i download using a newsgroup via ethernet i get around 53mbps constant. no drop outs and very reliable.

Same PC same servers using WIFI dongle and i get MAXIMUM 30mbps. the speed regularly falls down to below 5mbps and then speeds up again.

I recently re-installed windows 7 and on my previous install i had the same problem, i downloaded SG TCP IP optimiser and it worked i got 47 mbps, i tried it again though on this install and it didnt.

The dongle is the TP link WN727N, this has no drivers on TP links website as it says windows 7 will automatically install the driver for it.

Any suggestions on how i can fix this?

Hi steve.

I would bet you are using "homegroup" as your network model. homegroup on some systems is flaky. You can test it for yourself by simply creating a new network connection using the workgroup model. If the problem is fixed you can then disable IPv6 and kill homegroup
Let us know if you need help

Hi

I live in a townhouse in a college campus which means we all have the same ISP. I checked the channels and checked wifi stumbler. They both look good. For the last few days I have been getting really slow internet speeds after 7 pm till 1 am. I am paying for 25 mbps but around that time I get 0.5 mbps. I have the latest firmware for the router. I talked to customer support twice and all they did was reset my router and tell me to power cycle it. It can't be range of the router because my laptop is right next to it.

Can someone please help me fix this problem.

I first noticed the issue earlier when I was trying to play DOTA2 for the first time today (though after thinking about it, it has been going on for about a week...causing me to try a new AV program a few days ago). Anyway, today I noticed that I was getting random lag spikes into the 1000ms range. To test to see if it was just my PC, I used my wife's laptop and ran SpeedTest. Everything came back normal (20 down /10 up). I went back to my PC and tried to run SpeedTest and I can't even get it to finish a test. Every once in a while it will get past pinging the server and show a d/l speed of only 3Mbps. I've never had an issue before, and the only thing I've done recently is add 2 more sticks of RAM. Anyone have any ideas of where I should start trying to fix the problem?

PC specs are in my signature. Using Linksys WMP600N wi-fi adapter.

edit: I've tried the basic stuff like restarting the PC, updating the device drivers, etc.
 

Answer:Extremely slow internet (wifi)

Wire directly into your router and see what your speeds are like, then if that doest work wire directly to your modem. Use process of elimination.

Just going on the internet on my laptop is super frustrating because the the wifi problem. Anyone have an idea what the problem is?
update: I just did a speed test on my laptop and it says in getting 42Mbps DL and 6Mbps UL, but the internet on my laptop is as slow as a snail

Answer:The wifi on my laptop is as slow as a snail right now

Be sure the adapter is not set to any kind of power saving or efficiency mode in Device Manager. Does it do the same with IE or other browser?

Hi all, hopefully you can help. I have an interesting issue I haven't been able to figure out. I have an Airlink 101 AR675W router with the latest firmware installed which is connected my leased cable modem. There is a variety of devices using the network here including an iPad, two Android phones, an HP netbook, an HP printer, an HP laptop, a PS3, etc. Of all these devices, only the PS3 is hard wired to the router, the rest all use Wifi. Only the HP laptop has issues, and I can't sort it out.

The laptop with the issue is less than 6 months old, shows link speed to the router of ~240-300 mbps, but web page loading, downloads, etc are intermittently slow. When it's "acting up", speed test sites show ~1.5 mbps download, yet 3+ mbps upload still. When it's not "acting up", the same sites show 20+ mbps download with 3+ mbps upload. The interesting thing to me is that even when the laptop is running slow, ALL the other devices run normally and are plenty fast at 20+ mbps. Connecting directly with an ethernet cable gives proper speeds. I have also tried rebooting all devices (modem, router, laptop) with no change.

The drivers are all up to date on the laptop, the firmware on the router is up to date, etc. Restarting the laptop as a "clean boot" makes no difference for wireless speeds, nor does safe mode with networking. I have tried temporarily disabling all firewalls with no change also. There are no devices that I have been able... Read more

Having done a broadband speed test with Speedtest.net on my NC6320 with a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card and my Netgear router, found my speed to be alot slower than thought.
The router incoming download speed is 3.07Mbps which is what we can expect from our exchange from BT line test. My laptop shows to be 1.02 Mbps. My son who also has a NC 6000 with a Intel 2200 his test shows to be 2.73Mbps. and this test is done when we are side by side or just mine switched on or even if I'm sat alongside the router. Both are running XP Pro with SP3.

The registry has been modified/added for the TcpWindowSize @ 64240. Latest driver direct from Intel for the wifi card. The Wireless Network Connection shows 54Mps with a Good/Excellent signal and configured for 802.11 b&g, cannot set for 'g' only as no choice in drop list.

Any tips of how to increase my speeds.

Thanks

My LAN speed is usually around 5100 via my SpeedTouch router ST585v6. When I am using my Laptop, an HP Pavilion dv6 running Windows 7 with an AMD quad Core cpu, not the fastest of computers!, I seem to get WIFi speeds as low as 1700 whilst at other times can get 5000.
The Router is only about 6 feet away from the Laptop! Is the speed drop a "computer problem" or a router one? If I connect the Laptop to the LAN the speed will always be at about 5100. My desktop computer is connected to the LAN and has a speed of 5100.
I have the usual security set on the Router.
Does anyone have any thoughts?

Answer:Slow WiFi speeds with my Laptop

Is your wifi adapter up to date?
It could be due to interference- do you have a cordless phone, for example, near? Have you tried changing the wireless channel on the router? Try 1, 6 or 11.

My Sony Vaio laptop is experiencing slow internet speed even though the signal level shows as excellent. This is only when using it upstairs, where it is normally used. In the same room as the router it is fine. This has only just starting happening and it was OK anywhere in the house until a couple of days ago. To make it even more confusing my wife's notebook and my iphone work fine on the network in the bedroom. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

So my problem that I'm hoping to improve is that my my E430 has a terrible internet speed no matter if I'm connected through wifi, through a Netgear Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter.Here are a couple speed test results on the PC using fast.com:Netgear Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter on PC = 44 MbpsWifi on PC (Chrome) = 19 MbpsWifi on PC (Firefox) = 20 Mbps Our service is suppose to have around 70-80 Mbps (I forget the exact speed right now) so I feel like I'm not getting what I'm paying for because of my laptop's terrible connection speed. I tested the speed of our wifi out on a different computer (a Macbook) and it toped out at about 70 Mbps there, but not anything better than 20 Mbps on my laptop.My laptop is running Windows 7 (64-bit). The modem is a Motorola SURFboard provided by the ISP. Our wifi network goes from the modem to an Apple AirPort Time Capsule 4th gen which creates the network I connect to. The ISP disabled the wifi on the router because we connected it to the AirPort. I looked at the Lenovo site's drivers page for my computer, but don't know if or which I should download and don't feel right blindly downloading and installing.Any advice would be a huge help. Thanks in advance.

Answer:E430 Slow Wifi Internet? No idea what I'm doing or where to look.

I have an E430.  While trying to fix a USB problem I finally upgraded the bios (I usually resist doing that because things can go badly wrong).  Anyway, update went well, didn't fix the USB problem (that was another issue) but it did make the wifi work a lot better.  Not sure if speeds are faster but connecting is much more reliable.  Some of the interim bios update versions did refer to wifi fixes.

Initially windows 10 was running fine until suddenly (I'm using Chrome) errors such as "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET" started occurring, while periodically the wifi kept disconnecting . After searching for and following some solutions this issue was fixed however now the internet is very slow. Admittedly I'm not technically adept at all however I believe something I changed may have made the wifi slow. I did the following things:
- Cleared chrome's cache
- Changed the DNS to google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (which I am currently using) from the default (IPv4)
- Tried to update network adapter drivers (said there were no new versions when using the 'automatic search')
- Used cmd to run commands such as "ipconfig /flushdns"
- Tried performing a clean boot
- Also followed these instructions (http*://wind8apps.com/fix-error-code-dns_probe_finished_no_internet-windows-8-windows-10/ without the * )
- And maybe some other things that I can't remember
If this problem can't be resolved I'll just have to go back to windows 8.1, the internet is unbearably slow and I can't use ethernet instead of wifi.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Hi, I have this problem since some time now, I have 2 laptops and T430 and an Ideapad Y510P. The T430 connects to the internet with no issues but the Y510P is taking too much time to resolve a web page, after 10 or 15 seconds I get a timeout error on the browers, then I need to reload the page and I eventually access the webpage.Other problem is that seems to be that loading the web page sometimes it takes too much time, just like you had a 56k Fax mode where the pics load just one by one and suddenly it loads all at once. I have a Intel Wireless-N 7260, however, Lenovo support web page tells me that I should have a Qualcomm Atheros adapter. On device manager, the Qualcomm Atheros refers to the ethernet adapter (not wifi) and when searching intel for latest driver the 7260 is for Bluethooth only, which is odd. Anyone know how to fix this issue? by the way, other Laptops and cell phones connect to the router without any issues, only the Y510P is having this long waits and timeout issues. Thanks

Answer:Y510P WIFI slow internet connection

Go to Control Panel/Uninstall Programs and check if you have Intel Proset software and Intel Bluethood installed. If one of them is missing try going to Intel's website and download the program. You may also download the latest Bluetooth driver if you like. Install the Bluetooth driver first then the Intel Proset program. If the installer present an option to uninstall the old program choose this and install the new one thereafter.

If I am connected via wifi the download speed is 2 meg and it affects all the computers in the house (all are 2 meg)  when I disable the wireless adapter and plug into the router directly with a cable the speed increases to 50+ meg on all computers.

I have performed a full scan using kaspersky internet security and malwarebytes both clean
I have ran windows update and installed all updates
I have reinstalled the wireless nic drivers
 
still the same result.
 
aside from buying a new wireless adapter for this laptop (if its even possible)  can you recommend other things to resolve the issue?

Hello everyone. I have recently update my Y50-70 to Windows 10 Pro. My issue is that when i connect with Wi-fi to the internet i have about 15mbps while when i connect with ethernet i have around 35 mbps. My modem is 2 meters away from me and when i run the test with my Android phone through the same page for internet speed i get around 30mbps. I have the Broadcom 802.11ac network card. When i install the driver for this card from lenovo ( the WLAN Driver (Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) driver) i cannot connect to any Wifi and sometimes i got a screen freeze so i forced reboot. I have tried to unistall the driver from device manager and then reboot my pc but i got the same result in speedtest.I called lenovo and they told me to wait until the driver is udated again (last update July of 2016) but they didn't know if the driver will be updated soon. Any solutions?Sorry for the bad english.

Answer:Lenovo Y50-70 slow Wifi internet connection

I assume the problem come after Windows 10 Pro right? So, the problem would be either Driver... or just that Windows 10 try to download update to itself when you tested it. Well, mostly it is not Windows 10 updated but I think you should use stock Windows 10 Wifi Driver. My Wifi in Y50-70 is Atheros AR956x and using Windows 10 Driver right now. The Wifi speed look great. The speed is around 40Mbps (about 5 MB/s). I'm not using driver from Lenovo not because it is slow, but it is outdated. You can try using 'Iobit Driver Booster' to get newest WiFi Driver for your system and try that too. Although, I did have it installed in my system but I didn't have it install any newer WiFi Driver as I fairly pleased with driver from Microsoft.

Hi, the wi-fi on my laptop has suddenly become very slow (5mbps) and it usually disconnects every 5 minutes and I have to wait another 5 minutes for it to reconnect.

This has only started happening the last 10 days or so.

The wi-fi on my android phone which is connected to the same router runs perfectly with quite high speeds achieved. 50mbps

I have a computer that is wired via ethernet and that achieves speeds of 70mbps.

I have tried reinstalling the driver but nothing happens. If I try 'updating' the driver Windows just says it's the best driver installed.

I have tried reinstalling Windows 10 by reseting it. It has the latest updates.

Is it possible my wi-fi adapter hardware is failing? I thought it would either work or not if it was the hardware.

I have no idea how to solve this problem and it basically means I can't use my laptop as I have to keep waiting for it to reconnect after it disconnects every 5 minutes.

I have also 'reset' the router incase it was a problem with that but was unsuccessful.

I hope someone can help me with a miracle solution.

I'm wondering if I should got back to Windows 7 but I've had Windows 10 for a good few months now and the adapter has always been fine. I'm just worried a latest update has affected it somehow.

Oh I can also use my phone via USB tethering and I get good speeds doing that but I don't have a lot of data so it's not a viable solution.

Hiya. For a while I've been experiencing that my download and upload speeds seem to vary wildly while on my computer, however they always seem to be MUCH lower than on my laptop. When using speedtest.net my laptop tends to average around 25 mbps downloading and 15 mbps uploading. Occasionally my desktop will peak and be slightly better (best I've seen today is 37.55 mbps and 19.03 mbps uploading) but the grand majority of the time it seems to hover at around 5 mbps download and 1 or 2 mbps upload. I don't understand why this is. Things I have tried:
Updating to Windows 10 on desktop (not that I am on my laptop)
Updating the drivers for my TRENDnet 300Mbps Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter wireless adapter (tried, no need as they're up to date)
Turning off power saving mode (I don't know why this was enabled on a desktop but it was)
Turning off the windows option to "disconnect this device to save power"
Cleaning in the inside of my desktop tower
Changing my IPv4 DNS server values
And I have also tried running a full virus scan, malware scan and uninstalling every program I installed in the last month

And I know it is almost certainly not interference due to the fact that my laptop sits directly above my PC tower, both a whole floor away from the router, and the laptop does okay.

All of a sudden the wifi on my laptop has been really slow lately. I remember before I could stream 720p videos without any buffer on Youtube. Now I'm lucky if I can somewhat stream a 340p without the occasional stutters/buffers. Sometimes I would be getting 39 Mbps or 52 Mbps (if I'm really lucky) , but most of the times I would get either 26-19 Mbps. On all my other devices (iPod, Family Desktop, iPhone) the internet speed seems just fine as they can stream in 720p and browse without any network problems. Also I am upstairs with the router downstairs in the family room.

My results from Speedtest.net - 25 ms, 2.56 Mbps Download Speed, 0.38 Mbps Upload Speed.

This result is VERY UNSTABLE, sometimes I couldn't even get 1 Mbps download speed (more like 0.8). I would also have like 50 ms. I am running Windows 8 Pro with a Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC on a Toshiba Satellite Laptop.
DHCP is enabled. IPv6 is not. I made sure everything was updated using Windows Update. And I'm only using the windows defender firewall which I made wasn't blocking anything by disabling it and seeing if it cleared up any problems - which it did not, the same thing happened.

Please help me with this issue, its very annoying and frustrating to have a really slow wifi at times and really good at other times.

Answer:My laptop the only computer having slow wifi issues?

This seems to be an issue with your router.

Try tuning off your computer. Unplug your modem and router wait a minute or so.

Plug in the modem and router wait till all lights stabilize.

Startup your computer and see how your connection is then.
Is your wifi though the router encrypted with WEP or WPA? If not someone outside can be stealing your connection causing slow speeds.

I connect my PC to my router using a wifi dongle (I wish I could use Ethernet but it's just not practical). My router is a D-Link Wireless AC1900, my dongle is an Asus USB-AC56. They connect strongly, usually at 585Mbps. My incoming internet connection is passed through from the modem to the router. The modem isn't broadcasting a Wifi signal. My internet is a fibre connection provided by talktalk.

When testing with Speedtest, my iPad, mobile phone, Macbook and other devices typically see down speeds of 40-60Mbps and up speeds of 15-19Mbps, which is roughly what they should. (I mean, I'm paying for 80Mbps, but whatever.) My PC will occasionally get the same, but very often the download is erratic and slow, something like 1-5Mbps, and I don't know how to rectify it. (The upload isn't a problem, so what I'm usually getting is an up speed that's 4-15x my down speed.)

The problem doesn't seem to be with the router or modem, given that my other devices are getting good speeds, and it doesn't help to troubleshoot through Windows because as far as my PC's concerned, it's getting an internet connection, it doesn't care about the speed, so it doesn't suggest any solution.

I have tried various combinations of restarting the computer, unplugging the dongle, restarting AND unplugging, and every once in a while after being plugged back in it starts to reach the 40-60Mbps range, but there's no consistency to it.

Answer:WiFi Internet very slow in C40-05 All-in-One (Lenovo) - Type F0B50052US

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
On Lenovo every model has it support site with all the drivers available. Check the support site of the C40-05.
 
Give it a try updating the wireless drivers first to see if something improves. There are two depending on the model:
- Realtek 8723BE, 8192EE, 8821AE, 8188EE Combo Card WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Desktop
- Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Desktop
Check which one applies for your model.
 
Also, just in case check any other process running on Windows that may be trying to use the network bandwith.
 
Regards

I spent the last 3 hours trying to diagnose.. Out of the blue after 2 weeks of perfect laptop,  something is wrong with my ethernet/wifi on my T400s. Even plugged with ethernet to the router i'm only getting less than 500ms ping delay and 300kb/s, where 2 other computers right next to me will get 7Mb/s and 9Mb/s.  Wireless is even worse it'll get into the 200kb/s and again the other computer can get 3-4MB/s.  I've tried.. 1. disabling antivirus (i'm using esot)2. disabling windows firewall3. uninstalling think advantage wireless software 4. rolling back wifi drivers5. installing updating intel wifi drivers6. lots of reboots7. make sure maximum power setting is on (why is default in think advantage to max battery?) I'm at a loss.. My t60p never had this problem. Any help here? anyone else have this problem? once in a while it'll get back to 3MB/s  btw, using www.speedtest.net  but it can't stay there consitently. Other tests will drop down to 200Kb/s.. frustrating..

Answer:T400s SLOW internet intermittent wifi and ethernet

Ya. Exactly the same thing here. This T500 is brand new, it worked fine for a month, I have no idea what changed but it is pretty useless now. OS: XP, both WIFI and Ethernet are no good on this machine. Rolled back Drivers, reinstaled all fresh, Help?!

I have upgraded my OS from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After the installation the internet speed is slow down like a dial in connection (it is slow down if I am using wifi connection and it is fine if I am using a cable/wired connection). It is taking long time to load the web page (like google, gmail etc) and it is not streaming any video from youtube/netflix. I spend one day for fixing this issue but don't know how to fix this.
Please help me to how to fix this issue ( increase the internet speed using wifi connection)? or how I will revert back to Windows 8.1?

Thanks

Answer:WIFI Internet speed is slow down after upgrading to Windows 10

Hi All,
The slow internet connectivity using through the wifi is resolved. I update all the device software from the device manager (especially network card - Realtek) and after that I am able stream the video and it is fast now.

Thanks

I just re-installed the OS (Windows 7 64bit) on my Folio 9470m.  The WiFi is so sluggish, it is un-usable.  When I run a speedtest.net with a wired connection, I get 25mbps.  When I run the test with WiFi, it starts out at 25mbps, but drops quickly until the test times out before it gets to 100%. -The wireless device is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6235.  The driver version is 15.17.0.1.-I had just obtained the laptop and didn't use it much before I re-installed the OS.  I believe the WiFi was fine before I re-installed the OS, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm hoping that this is something simple that I can fix.  Any ideas? Thanks,Mark

Answer:Laptop WiFi extremly slow and stops working

Drivers are about the only issue that can be fixed without replacing the card. Here is the driver download page: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5271102&swItemId=ob_146625_1&swEnvOid=406... Note the instruction to remove prior drivers first. I would uninstall the wireless from device manager, use advasnced uninstall and remove the existing driver from the system and then reload the driver. Download the new driver and keep track of it as you uninstall since obviously once you uninstall you will not have wireless to download the driver with. If this does not work we need to think about replacement of the card. Have you otherwise installed the chipset and other drivers?

Hi, recently the wifi on my laptop has been extremely slow and disconnects quite often (still shows as connected but says no internet) however the same wifi on my phone experiences no such issues. I was considering reinstalling windows to see if that fixes it but I'd rather avoid having to do that.
My wifi package is 100mb/s but on my laptop it ranges from a few mb to 20 or so if I'm lucky, is there any way to fix this without reinstalling windows & would that even solve the issue?
Thanks

Hi there,

I have just changed my router ( to a TP-Link TD-W9980 ADSL2+/VDSL2 router).
Talktalk is my ISP, and I had to swap out their rubbish Huawei router.

I have an issue on my work laptop which is running via my work VPN

Strangely a minute or so after I connect to my work VPN the Wifi icon in the taskbar comes up with an exclamation mark and I get "No Internet" in my 'Network and Sharing Centre' panel.
Despite this showing no Internet - I can surf and use the internet. Odd.

I get this if I connect to either 5Mhz or 2.4MHz bands on the router.
I have tried resetting the adapter, rebooting laptop etc.
I have rebooted the router.
In case this was a DNS issue I have changed the router to use the google Nameservers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).
The laptop is set to get DNS from the router - as it always has. - according to the networks details panel - it is picking up the google DNS settings from the router OK.
So I can surf OK, but its not that quick.

Why is this working like this?

Cheers

Stagger

So this has been going on for a few months. I have an HP DV6-7029wm laptop that will only get around 3.3Mbps over wifi. I have Uverse with the 20Mbps plan. Now here is what I have tried and nothing has fixed it.

Had Win 8.1 - Did fresh install to Win 7
Have tried 3 different versions of the Atheros 9485 Chipset Driver
Have swapped wifi adapters from daughters laptop
Disabled wifi security
Turned off Windows Firewall
AT&T swapped out my old gateway for the newest one they have

Now thinking it might be issues between my laptop and uverse gateway, I setup a Hotspot on my Galaxy S5 and used my phones LTE connection and was still only getting around 3.3Mbps. Now my phone will pull upwards of 25Mbps on LTE and the full 20 on my UVerse wifi.

Now the one that confuses me is I have a Cisco USB wifi adapter that I tried. And even with the USB adapter Im still only getting 3.3Mbps.

Any Ideas?

Just received my new laptop last week.  Over the course of the week, i noticed slow website loading, a 2.2mb fil taking 2 mins to download.  I went to speedtest.net and shocked to see the download speeds from .09mb - 5.43mb.  I have a 110MB down, 40MB up connection.  So i tested this with my other laptop and getting close to 30MB's better and expected.  I called Lenovo's tech suport they remoted into my machine and changed some configs in the advanced settings window of my adapter (Intel Wireless-N 7260).  Reboot, not any better. Then they had me change the channel on my router from Auto to channel 9.  Rebooted the router and tested again and now I am getting between 12-21mb and 7mb up.  After we disconnected thinking everything was good now my dell latptop now is registering at 66-69MB down and 38-41mb up.  So the channel change made everything faster but now I am left wondering what is wrong with my new Lenovo U530, specs says it up to a 300mb connection, and mind you when you check the connection in networking and shaing, it says its connected at 144mbps... what gives. I updated the BIOS on the machine, and even downloaded the new prowireless software from intels site but still getting 12mb-20mb download.  Is anyone else having this eperience or had it and know the fix? Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks in advanced. John

Answer:Slow Laptop..slow starting up and loding internet pages

1. Software
a) Clear out all temporary files and folders -- use CCleaner http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
b) Scan for malware spyware and viruses --Free Anti Spyware :-
Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Superantispyware http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html
Free Antivirus software
MicroSoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/security/products/mse.aspx
Avast http://www.avast.com/en-gb/free-antivirus-download
c) Clean the registry -- Use the tool in Crap Cleaner its very safe and also allows you to back up the registry first.
d) Pagefile (Virtual Memory) -- Right click MY Computer - select properties - Advanced tab - Performance -
advanced tab - Virtual memory click change, you can put the page file on a different drive (if you have one), click
custom size and set Initial size to one and a half times the amount of memory you have fitted i.e. 512MB memory
= set to 768MB, set maximum to double your memory amount i.e. 512MB memory = 1024MB click ok.
If your hard drive is full and there is not enough room for the pagefile this can slow down, freeze or even cause the
PC to crash (restart).
e) Cut down on the programs that load at start up -- Start - Run type msconfig - start up tab- untick everything except for firewall, antivirus and antispyware

hi all,

it's been a long time since I have had to post something about my problems in these forums. Well over a year as I have had my laptop for over a year now. This may seem like a similar thread to most that have been put up recently but I think it is quite different.

Ever since I have upgraded to IE8 I have noticed Vista be very slow. It could be to do with IE8 but I think that the slowness of my machine has been since before then...according to my wife. Has her facebook shennanegans broken the laptop???!

Here is a list of problems I am getting:
Long start up times. They aren't bothering me that much, just seem to be a bit longer than normal.
Very long time from when Vista has loaded and I can actually do somehting (15 minutes just now to access an mp3 on my desktop and it kept skipping for about 5 minutes before it stops skipping and playing the track normally)
Extremely slow at logging onto the internet. I mean that it takes minutes, literally minutes for IE8 to even display the very first internet page. After that it is slow, but not as bad...still frustrating though.
Changing between programs seems to take a few seconds.
Accessing my computer or my documents is like a game of russian roulette, will it let me or won't it.....900 on it won't!!!!
On mp3 tracks, if you go back to a certain point in the track it will take a few seconds to actually complete the task

guys

I've a samsung laptop thats about 3 years old. its running Windows 7 home premium with 6GB Ram and an i3-2350 (2.3GHz) cpu

a while ago it was dog slow, taking 20 minutes for the Wifi to connect, when connected webpages would hang so i ran a bunch of AV scans and cleaned up what was found. updated the drivers and so on but still no luck. so i rebuilt it using the recovery partition to factory spec. it was running fine for a while

Now whats happening is any time uTorrent opens it hangs the laptop, thought it was maybe the windows Firewall so disabled that and it was no better. Switched to Deluge and that ran fine for a few days and again started acting up. but even outside the moral/legal/ethical aspects of using a torrent app the WiFi still takes minutes to connect, when the laptop boots it takes a good 5-10 minutes to be usable. once its running its fine until a torrent app are opened or theres more than 6 browser pages opened and then it becomes unresponsive again.

Ran an Avira AV scan and it came back clean, checked with Malwarebytes and that came back clean also.

any recpommendatiosn on where to start looking for a cause and resolution for this?

My laptop shuts down suddenly and I think it is either because of static electricity, cooling fan not working and unit shuts down because of over heating or both. In addition this laptop has terrible wifi reception. I have an old Dell Inspirion unit with Windows XP that still works and has great wifi reception. Anyway for the static electricity I think the problem is in the circuit between the ground connection between the computer (outside cylinder of male pin plug) pin and the electric ground pin of the plug to the wall receptacle. With the Dell laptop I get 0 resistance (using ohmmeter) across them. But with the HP I get anout 1 ohm and the resistance is in the transformer. With regards the overheating I used a vacuum cleaner with wand attachment to try to suck out dirt/lint through the fan discharge. Also I added rubber bump pads (sticking them with contact cement) to lift the bottom up higher to make it easier for cooling air to enter the bottom air intakes.  I  did not want to open up the unit. I saw how complicated it is from YouTube videos. I heard Dell laptops are easier to get into. The CD/DVD cover on the laptop will not open. I have to insert a wire through the hole near the button to open it. Alsio this laptop is super slow yet it has a i7-4710HQ CPU! HP this laptop sucks!

Any suggestions for this? The internet is running smoothly on my PC (Windows 10) and my android connects well with other wifi sources.
Have tried looking at all the network adapters and it seems that all of them are already updated and are all enabled. Have also tried turning off the firewall but nothing seems to be working... Signal strength appears to be strong on my phone.

My fiance and I are in the same room as the wireless router. My computer is hooked up to the ethernet itself, no problem there. Our roommate is in another part of the house (far away from the router), and he says he's getting insanely fast internet. My fiance's laptop (which is the Compaq F700 duo-core laptop running Vista) was working great for a week or so at this house. Then suddenly one day she comes home from work, and her internet is running like it's hooked up to 28.8k. If she hooks up to the ethernet, the connection on her computer is amazing.
So...
- Roommate's integrated Wifi is working GREAT from far away from the wireless router
- Problem computer is ten feet from the router itself and getting terrible speed
- Definitely connected to our network (with a unique name)

So as far as I can tell, the problem is not our provider, not our router, and not range. It seems to lie solely with the way the wireless software (or possibly hardware) is set up.

No one changed any settings before this happened, but the computer is set up to update automatically.

If anyone has any input that could help, we would be incredibly grateful. We're at the end of our ropes on this one.

Hello,

I have an HP Pavilion g7-2233cl Laptop running Windows 8. I bought it new (refurbished) about a year and a half ago.

Until recently, I’ve had no problem connecting to the Internet via WiFi. But recently, although everything says I’m connected to our home WiFi and things are working swimmingly, I cannot access anything on the Internet. I get messages like “Unable to connect” or “Cannot show this page.”

We have other computers on the same WiFi, and none of them are having a problem.

I’ve tried several remedies based on tips I’ve seen on the Internet (using a different computer, of course). For example, I:

Deleted all the temp files.

Flushed a bunch of stuff using the Admin. Command Prompt:
ipconfig /flushdns
nbtstat –R
nbtstat –RR
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
netsh winsock reset

Disabled Webroot.

Connected to the router via an ethernet cable.

Tried System Restore to about a month earlier.

Nothing helped.

Any suggestions?

the problem is with LT.

PC is connected wirelessly. BC is wired to the router. LT is wireless with Atheros AR5004G built in.
i downloaded this http://pcpitstop.com/store/exterminate.asp on the LT. ran the scan and uninstalled it because it didn't remove the spyware.
after that the LT started acting up. i couldn't search for the word spyware, couldn't click the category 'anti-virus & spyware downloads' @ download.com & couldn't do anything with the word spyware, couldn't even install anti-spyware programs downloaded from the other 2 PC's.

so we thought to do a factory restart restoring it from out of box state. finished that. now it doesn't want to connect to the internet. checked PC & BC to see if they were still able to connect. internet shows up fine except for LT. when LT is connected with the Ethernet cable, Internet is fine; webpages show up. but once disconnected, and using the wifi, internet doesn't show up.

Now I cannot connect to the Internet through Ethernet (which is my only option where I am, which is at home), and the Wi-Fi networks that used to show up on the list because I am within range don't show up anymore. I cannot even turn Wi Fi 2 on, since it is grayed out under "Networks."

Specifically, it now says "Dell Wireless 1705 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHZ) #2" on the Device Manager. I tried to delete the #2 from "Wi-Fi 2" on the Network Connections page, but it says "cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name you specified already exists." So the original Wi-Fi (and Ethernet) are still there, somewhere, but where? Why did they disappear? How can I get them back?

Here is some system information:

Windows edition: 8.1
Processor: Intel Core i5-4200 U 1.60 GHz, 2.30 GHz
64-bit operating system

I restored my system to March 19, but that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My pc was slowing down so I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows 7. All went well except one thing internet on wifi doesn't work. The rest of the toys in the house still connect through the router but the laptop does not. If the lan cable is plugged in the internet works. I used this to find the latest drivers for my laptops wifi card. Through the wifi I can enter the router settings but not externally to the internet. I'm thinking its something simple in the security setting Please help.

Answer:Windows 7 laptop wifi connect but no internet

Did you install ALL drivers including the chipset driver? Open device manager - any yellow or red symbols?

I have my Home Security System, ip cameras... On a router and going to ethernet
my laptop
.
On that same laptop I connect wirelessy from my internet modem. but I get an error message saying that Multiple Networks have been detected. To configure the router correctly to solve the problem.

I have seen the internet working , with the additional router. Then it just blinks out and I get a message saying no internet available.

Something that should be simple to fix or maby I should just buy a USB wifi adapter instead of using the Ethernet Cable from my Modem or router. 2 wifi -connections instead of wifi- Ethernet connections. If that is possible.

i have 2 PC's & 1 Laptop. we'll call them PC, BC & LT
the problem is with LT.

PC is connected wirelessly. BC is wired to the router. LT is wireless with Atheros AR5004G built in.
i downloaded this http://pcpitstop.com/store/exterminate.asp on the LT. ran the scan and uninstalled it because it didn't remove the spyware.
after that the LT started acting up. i couldn't search for the word spyware, couldn't click the category 'anti-virus & spyware downloads' @ download.com & couldn't do anything with the word spyware, couldn't even install anti-spyware programs downloaded from the other 2 PC's. Everytime I tried, the browsers [IE, CrazyBrowser & Firefox] would close by themselves. Tried to run scans, but the scanners would close automatically also.

so we thought to do a factory restart restoring it from out of box state. finished that. now it doesn't want to connect to the internet. checked PC & BC to see if they were still able to connect. internet shows up fine except for LT. when LT is connected with the Ethernet cable, Internet is fine; webpages show up. but once disconnected, and using the wifi, internet doesn't show up.

The wifi is ON and I have set the settings on it. WiFi does read the router and says it's Excellent with all the bars lit green. but internet still doesn't show up.
It has worked just a couple of hours ago just before installing that program from PC Pitstop. ... Read more

So I'm having trouble getting on my home wireless internet using my iPhone.

My router is in the basement, and whenever I'm on the third floor, my laptop gets around 2 bars, but my iPhone can't pick up the signal.

So is there any way that I can use my laptop as a second router to extend my wifi to my iPhone? I've tried third party programs like Virtual Router Manager, Connectify, Maryfi, but my iPhone (4S model) picks up the signal for like 20 seconds, and then the wifi just drops for 10 minutes, then picks it up again for like 20 seconds, then drops for like 10 minutes again, and on...)

Is there any way that windows 7 can do it natively? or are there any other solutions out there? thanks!

Hello,

Wireless Repeaters/Extenders would help.

If the Router has external Antenna, you may replace them with High Gain Antenna and they are quite reasonable. The higher the dBI's the better signal you'll get. I use them at my home and it works great.

Dear Friends,

I am encountering strange issue while connecting my laptop to my home wifi router. I have 4 devices connected to router and working perfectly, but my Dell laptop suddenly stopped connecting to internet. It seems to be connected to router, but says No Internet Access. This is new issue, since it was working fine along with other 4 devices in the past.

Tried doing some basic steps, like - Removing the devices from Network Center and adding again, Reset the Router, ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release..but nothing works.

The funny thing is when I do a USB/Wifi Hotspot Tethering using same wifi with my Android phone, the Dell laptop connects to internet.

So, Its clear that Wifi Router is Good, Internet is Good, Laptop Network Card is also good, but something else is wrong. Please help.

OS - Windows 10(The same issue was there in Windows 7 HP before installing Windows 10)

I try to connect my lumia830 to internet through the wifi on laptop. I have installed virtual router plus on my laptop with windows 7. Now, the wifi in my lumia is connected, however, I have no internet connection. How can I fix that?
I am sure that the wifi hotspot works properly since my friends samsung phone can connect to internet using this spot.

I keep having trouble staying on the wifi at a local coffee shop (Panera). Once I connect, it stays connected for maybe 10 minutes. Then constantly drops off. Disconnect, wait a minute then reconnect, and it might work again for a short time.

Reboot the laptop, and the process starts all over again.

Never have any trouble on any other wifi. Another laptop that I will occasionally bring stays connected for well over an hour. Same with my phone.

Can anyone offer any suggestions. Thanks.
Here are the specs to the laptop.
