My wifi on my laptop is very slow. I don't remember if I had this issue before updating to Windows 10.
Speedtest shows.
Ping 22ms, Download Speed 4.5 Mbps, Upload Speed 6.21 Mbps
If I run speedtest on my phone connected to wi-fi or my girlfriends Macbook in same area results will look like
Ping 16ms,Download Speed 45.19 Mbps, Upload Speed 6.39 Mbps
What could cause the download speed on my laptop to be so slow. It's really infuriating.
Thanks for the help.
