All computers/phones in the house use the same connection, yes. None of them have been moved though.
I have two laptops right next to this computer and they connect at the correct speed. They have always been in the same spot.
*I currently share the connection from one laptop to the PC via DSL cable to achieve the proper speed I should be getting*
I've tried disconnecting all other wireless computers etc already but the problem still occurs.
I mean an Ethernet cable. Not sure why I call it a DSL cable haha.
Yes, I'm aware of that BUT I only share the connection so that I CAN get near-full speed on this PC.
If I un-plug the laptop I use to share the internet, shut it down etc and just the wireless connection on this PC instead, I get the low connection speed as mentioned.
It's strange, huh?
I've worked with PC's for years and understand them more than the average person (so I've tried all the normal stuff) - the fact that it USED to work and now doesn't 100% work baffles me as everything has stayed the same...
Well, clearly something has changed somewhere... just don't know where!
It was about 2 months ago it was working at the correct speeds.
I don't see anywhere in the device manager settings for the wireless card where it mentions what mode it's running?
