Wi-Fi Connection Slower on a Brand New Device
I’ve just bought myself a new Acer Aspire A515-55 but I seem to be having some internet speed issues and need some help in trying to sort it out. When connected to my home wifi, on the new laptop I am hardly reaching 20mbps internet download speeds with an average of about 15mbps download (10 Upload).
This for me is a little bit concerning when all other devices on the same network are receiving speeds of up to 50-70mbps download.
The problem persists even when there are no other devices connected and I have deactivated any security software to see if that makes a difference, which it does not.
As a bit of background, I initially couldn’t get anything faster than 5mbps, but after disabling the ‘802. 11n/ac/ax Wireless mode’, (now only the ‘802.11a/b/g mode is activated’) I had it peak up to what it is now.
Any and all assistance/tips would be greatly appreciated!
