Limited wifi or no wifi

    Windows 8 x64

    Ok, I'm unable to to any resets right now because I would like to backup my data.

    So I was wondering if you could take the ideas up your sleeves and place them into a post?

    My computer is a laptop, HP Pavilion G6 (I'm not sure if that's the full name or not)

    My internet is Sky, although I'm almost definitely sure that this isn't the problem, because my ipad, which is what I use for this forum, my phones, my old laptop (which ran windows 7 ultimate) and my brother's mac all connect to the internet fine, despite the fact that my internet is really bad xD

    If this helps, I went to and ran this.

    Download speed - 2.59 Mbps
    Upload speed - 0.56 Mbps
    Ping - 25ms

    Although my download speed in general is anything between 50-350 Kbps when I'm downloading files
    When I'm uploading to youtube, my I upload at 0.12 Kbps - ish. It's horrible, so I upload elsewhere. (For a 200mb vid, it takes maybe 4-9 hours, big range, I know)

    So yeah, I'm not sure if I just wasted my time or not providing that info, but hopefully it helps.

    The problem stopped for about 2 months. I was extremely happy, no more cutting out in the middle of something.

    But now it's back with a vengeance. Also I've noticed a few other things...

    - the problem fixed soon after i uninstalled Skype for windows 8, but now it's back, I haven't touched the windows 8 store since.

    -Most of the time, this happens while I'm in game (every single one of them) or watching a video.

    - also since my fan sucks and breaks so easily, my laptops fan is "loud", when it starts getting louder, the internet drops out more frequently
