I have 2 computers and 1 laptop. I did a speedtest on the main computer (wired to the server) and it gets about 25-30 mbps on speedtest.net. My laptop gets about 10 mbps (which is understandable as it is wireless) But my other computer used to get these speeds, now its getting around 0.50-1 mbps. Any ideas on why this computer is getting crappy speeds?

Do you have neighnours living close to you? it is possible if you do that they have set up wifi on a conflicting channel to yours. there is an android app called wifi analyser that would help you discover this, im sure iphones have a similar app too. if you do have this problem then you will need to adjust your routers settings to put your wifi onto a different channel, normally quite easy to achieve

due to the nature of radio waves, you may only suffer this in certain areas
