  1. Why is my wifi speed so bad on my laptop compared to my phone and ipad?


    So my wifi on my laptop runs around 10mbp/s but the exact same wifi on my ipad and phone is around 700mbp/s so I was just wondering if anyone can help me with whats causing this issue. Previously I was with Virgin Media and my wifi would run perfectly fine but since I've joined a new wifi company Hey Broadband, the wifi on my laptop seems to have massively deteriorated.For reference I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5505 and it has the 5GHz and 2.4Ghz bandwidth.Just wanted to say I've called the Wifi company and they'cve trouble shooted with me and they're sure that the problem is on my end because

  3. Wifi speed very less on Windows 10 Laptop compared to other devices

    Hi All,

    This is very frustrating to see the speed when you need to browse any website. I tried most of the solutions given on web but nothing really worked.

    The speed difference on Laptop vs Mobile connected to the same wifi

    Laptop

    [table][tr]DeviceDownload speedUpload speed[/tr][tr][td]Mobile[/td][td]40.6[/td][td]10.4[/td][/tr][tr][td]Laptop[/td][td]2.46[/td][td]4[/td][/tr][/table]


    1. Laptop is already rebooted multiple times and Windows is upto date.
    2. Deleted cache/Temp files(just in case if it helps)

      Please suggest any solution.

    Why is my wifi speed so bad on my laptop compared to my phone and ipad?

    Wifi speed on Lenovo laptop

    I have a Lenovo laptop with a Broadcom wifi adapter, the upload and download speed has fallen through the floor along with network drops outs.

    The laptop is running Windows 10 1909, the laptop is currently running Microsoft wifi adapter drivers, I have downloaded drivers direct from Broadcom but the performance was even worse using the Broadcom drivers. I have checked with the Lenovo web site and according to the driver support I have upto date drivers.

    I have checked wifi performance using speedtest.net on my phone sat next to my laptop and I am getting the expected broadband speed. My son has also tested the wifi speed on his PC upstairs and it is only slightly less than expected broadband speed ( to be expected based on distance from the router etc.). My broadband speed is 100+Mbps on average, the laptop is giving just 10Mbps.

    Can anybody make any suggestions on what I can do to get the laptops wifi performance back to wear it should be please.
