Dear All,


Hope this is the right place, if not i apologise.


I am running a HP Laptop Windows 8.1 (Hewlett-Packard HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC) (what a joy it's been :smash: )

My wifi adapter Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter  is fully up to date as is my pc.


I am having issues with my internet speed on WIFI. I have another laptop running in the same room currently which is an Asus; running windows 8.0. The asus is reaching speeds of near 30mbps as is my mobile (iphone) when i tested the speed on there. (both with Ookla).  My HP on the other hand is significantly slower less than half of that - last test was 13mbps. I can't work out what the issue is. i have turned all other devices off to test any changes, but no difference.

I only run AVG free as an antivirus protection. 


Can anyone make any recommendations.

Check to make sure that your router/modem and adapter match protocols (b, g or n).  It might be a case where you have to match the protocols with the modem, and the protocols are automatically picked.  This is just a guess.


Best of luck.
