Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Why do webpages load so much more slowly on my laptop than on my phone when both are connected to the same WiFi?

I have a new Lenovo laptop running Windows 10 and Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Only the browsers are running and I've cleared the histories. The phone is an iPhone 8. Both are running SurfEasy VPN on the same AT&T fiber WiFi. I'm supposed to be getting 300 Mbps upload and download, but speedtest on the computer varies between 90 and 180 Mbps download. Upload speeds are generally closer to 200-200 Mbps.

The Laptop web browser and mobile web browsers are different interfaces. The mobile browser is designed to load faster and only load a section of the webpage. whereas the laptop browser loads the entire page. Hope I make sense :)

SOURCE: I recently purchased a Netgear

I think its the modem that you need to upgrade. Comcast is already running on DOCSIS 3.0 system. The SB5120 modem that you have is a DOCSIS 2.0 modem. You may need to have your modem replaced with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem like the Motorola SB6120.

SOURCE: slow upload speed

It is usual that the internet speed differs when connected to a modem and a router. You have many possibilities to get signal affected while connected through a router.
Anyway you can try with these basic steps to get a better connection through router,
1.) Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.
Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from before and after performing these steps.

There are many,many factors beyond your control, Where you are downloading from, time, servers,traffic, etc., etc., etc. I would not get to hung up on "check my internet speed" software.

My Lenovo laptop won't connect to the wifi. TVs are connected to the wifi so I know it's not a problem with that & I tried to connect the laptop to my phones hotspot but still nothing. Someone helpppp

Sometimes it is incompatible devices, while standard wi-fi everything should work. Try updating the driver on wi-fi card, change the channel, and encryption type.

A wifi adapter on a hp lap top

Your question is vague, but ill point out some common, unknown issues. Not all devices can connect to all HotSpots, wifi networks can use many different security protocols and also frequencies. For example, my Asus router supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz wifi, but my brand new Lenovo laptop only supports 2.4. 4_29_2014_3_58_06_am.png
