    Having problem on WiFi


    I've two PCs in my home, one's a desktop and the other's a laptop. The desktop is connected to broadband through router(LAN) and the laptop is connected by wifi. In the desktop I get more than 200 kbps download speed on a direct download(Using IDM). But I get less than 50 kbps speed in my laptop from the same link using the same browser and download manager.

    Also, the connection always say limited in the laptop.(See Attachment)

    Note : This problem has been occurring for 2-3 days. In the past, it was as it should be.
    I tried to update the driver in my laptop, resetted the router more than ten times. But the result's same.

    Bad Wifi driver is most likely why. Without the information on the culprit machine. We can only take potshots in the dark, while blindfolded.

    You can post the results of "netsh wlan show all", that you have to run the command from a Command window. Then copy the results and paste on here.

    It also helps to know the model & mfg of laptop, your ISP, the mfg & model of the Gateway/Router you are using, how far away you are from the gateway, what speed you are paying for from your ISP (you can use Shaper Probe to post what your actual speeds are. Shaper probe can be downloaded from ShaperProbe)

    Wifi speeds will always vary over LAN, unless you know a few tricks to get them at the same throughput.

    Well, I've figured something out. This problem is only happening with some specific sites/servers(Here). But the speed's excellent when downloading from direct downloads(like from a software's site,also on youtube).

    If it is certain websites. That can be caused on the ISP end.

    Do you think I should contact my ISP? I don't think they'll be able to do something as the speed's fine in many sites.

    Some sites with slow/overloaded servers can be very slow. I just spent almost whole day downloading pile of pictures and videos from a picture sharing site and it never passed 2 Mbps even with the 15 Mbps connection to ISP.

    I would try to determine if the problem is in either your router or your laptop wifi.

    You could either:
    Bring in another laptop and see how it performs on your wifi.
    or
    Buy an add-on wifi adapter that plugs into a usb port on the laptop, and connect to the router with that.

    @CountMike, I got you, but isn't it weird that all filehost sites and anime streaming sites are having the same problem?

    @Vincenzo, Currently It's not possible for me to bring another laptop, but I tested it with two smartphones and they're doing fine.

    Have you connected the laptop to the router with a cable?
