Hi,

I have a laptop and a mobile device. With a 10Mbps internet, i am only getting 2M using speedtest. I tried with another 50Mbps internet, i am also getting 2Mbps at most on my laptop. However, i am able to get full speed on my mobile. One thing i notice after a fresh install, after i connect to the network, the hosts file in system32 went missing. Anyone can help?

If your laptop is an older model, it could have an old type of modem, which cannot reach certain speeds above the 2Mbps that you've stated.

i was able to get the full speed before something must have limited it. the wifi card is intel ac 7260. so it should not be a problem?

Yes, if you were able to get full speed before on the same laptop, that means that the problem is not hardware, but software. Can you reset your Internet settings and set up your connection again on your laptop? This usually fixes such problems.
