Why is my PC's Internet so slow?

 Share

I was wondering why my internet's connection is so slow?

All other devices on this network get at least a download speed of 10+ megabits per second and only this computer gets at MOST 3 megabits per second and ONLY this device seems to get this problem.

This was recently built computer.

 

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

CPU: AMD A10-7850K APU Quad Core

MOBO: ASUS A88XM-A

PSU: Corsair CX Series CX430M

RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury Memory Black 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1866

Wifi Adapter: ASUS USB-N13 802.11N

 

If you need any more information about this computer please just ask!

 

Thanks in Advance!

 

EDIT: Accidentally put gigabit instead of megabit

EDIT 2:Also my Ping in games such as League of Legends and CS:GO are playable and fine its just streaming videos and downloading files that REALLY get to me

3 Gigabits per second?! Who sells you internet that fast?!

The internet plan says it should give us between 3 to 15 Mbps DL speed but ONLY on this device do I ever get lower than 10 Mbps on a daily basis

A gigabit is much faster than a megabit.

You said gigabit (Gb/s)

Ryzen 5600X - RTX 3070

This is a USB wifi dongle right?

 

I bet if you move closer to your wifi point it will get faster :)

 

You might need a wifi upgrade.  you can allays plug in a cable to make sure first if you don't want to fork out for a new wifi adapter straight away.   But it will be the adapter that is probably causing the issue.

I've actually moved this Dongle and Rig UNDER the router. Same 3 Mbps speeds.

Also the guy I asked at NCIX said he used this one for playing FPS shooter games.

Are all of the computers on wifi?  If they are you probably have an issue with them not being equidistant from the router; your signal strength is probably greater on the other PCs.

 

If the other PCs are not on wifi then that answers that.  You aren't going to get wired speeds over the wifi connection.
