Please read throughly before replying, this is a weird problem and I have read and tried many solutions already.


My parent's wi-fi is supposed to be about 50mb. My computer, connected through wi-fi, gets around 0.3mb download speed. This is, of course, very frustrating and it is driving me mad. Luckily I don't live here so I have to deal with it just every one in a while.

ANYWAYS the thing is it happens with my computer, my mom's old computer and my brother's computer ( all laptops, asus, toshiba and dell respectively), it doesn't happen with my mom's new computer, or with my dad's (Dell and lenovo).

My brother says everything works fine when connected directly to router, but slow when on wi-fi connection, I haven't tried but I suppose it would be the same for me.

All of those computers work just fine with other networks.


Things tried already:

  • different operating systems (mine is dual windows10/ubuntu - same on either)
  • different browsers (even explorer)
  • forgetting all networks and connecting again
  • updating drivers
  • restarting the modem
  • contacting the SPI (A few times, nothing seems to be wrong)

^^ I have seen many solutions, but they all regard a certain computer, a certain wi fi connection, a certain wireless adapter etc... This connection problem seems to attack almost randomly, I can't find anything common between the computers where it's slow, and I have no idea where to look for a solution. ANY ideas would be welcome, thanks!
