A few days ago my wifi speed suddenly dropped off very sharply.  I get around 8 Mbps on a wired connection which isn't fast by any means, and 3 Mbps on another laptop with the same network.

 

Currently my connection is registering around 40 kbps, in other words, slower than dialup.   I've tried resetting the router, changing channels and even re-installing the driver but nothing is working.  Sites like Facebook take around 15 minutes to load, that is if they don't time out first.  Webmail takes several minutes to render a text-based message.  It's frustratingly slow.

 

Could someone help me out with this?

Your first step should be to call the ISP and have them do a line and modem check.

I've done that already.  The wired connection is fine and I get a decent, albeit not very fast, wifi connection with other devices.
