Default Wireless Internet running incredibly slow?

In the last week or two, my wireless internet has been really slow on my Laptop when trying to watch a Youtube video, and occasionally with downloads. It still runs at the same speed, but when I download (Generally trying to download a Youtube video) I get like, 15kb/s. When I connect it to the wire, I get my normal 90-100kb/s (Yes, My internet is the drizzling shits at best). Works fine on my as well. Anybody have theories as to what the problem could be?

Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, Try locating possible devices interfering with your network. There are lots of different types of devices that could be interfering with your network. To list a few, a neighbour's wireless network,cordless phones and microwaves.

Default Re: Wireless Internet running incredibly slow?

is this a problem no matter the wireless network you connect to? Like, when you connect to a public wifi hotspot (starbucks, mcdonalds, etc) is the speed slow? Or is it just at home? How far are you from the access point/router when you are connecting to the network? Has this ever been a problem in the past, or is this the first time this has happened?

Started happening like a week or two ago. I've never connected to a public wifi before so I can't compare. I'm currently about 30 feet or less from my router, but the computer still says the connection is excellent, and I can bring it in my room and it's still extremely slow to buffer/download a Youtube video. Odd thing is everything else is still running normally, and Youtube works fine on my iPod.

Default Re: Wireless Internet running incredibly slow?

what kind of router is it? while you get that for me, could you change your DNS server through network connections? It might just be a DNS issue on that computer. I'd suggest using google DNS (which is all I use anymore). If you need instructions on how to use google DNS, follow the link below.

https://developers.google.com/speed/...dns/docs/using

If that doesnt work, there's a couple other things I can ask, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

I don't think it would be a router problem. The laptop is the only thing that's affected. Xbox, iPod, and all other devices still work fine.

I followed that tutorial about the DNS but it didn't help.

I don't want to come across as an ass, but I can't stand when people give this answer. You're asking for help, but dismiss possibilities. Clearly there's a problem somewhere, and I'm asking the question for a reason. I'm asking for the router make (and model if possible) because you may have a wireless card in your PC or on your motherboard that is using a signal type that isnt the same as the signal your router is outputting.

So, for instance--and to put it into it's simplest terms...Your router is putting out wireless B, but your wireless adapter in your computer is a wireless N adapter. The adapter would then operate as if it was a wireless B adapter, and will be noticeably slower.

I didnt think it would help, but it was worth a shot.

Also, if you could run a tracert to youtube and see if there are any failed hops along the route (specifically at the VERY beginning of the route, where your computer goes through the router), then let me know.

To run a tracert, open a command line and type tracert www.youtube.com

Any instance of * in a line indicates a time out.

I tried the tracert, and I got two *'s. One in line 5, and one in line 8.

Here's a picture of the sticker on the bottom/back of my router. Not sure what information is valuable.

could you post a screenshot of the tracert, i wanna see where exactly (i know you said line 5 and 8) the time out was...if you want, you could PM it to me, as you'd be including some IP info.
