So I'm at my fiance's house with my new laptop (Lenovo Ideapad Y700), and I'm having an issue I've never had before. I tried connecting to his WiFi so we could stream some shows, but the connection seemed awfully slow. I know my phone (T-Mobile LG V20) gets good reception here, so I turn on the mobile hotspot and connect to that. It's just as slow.
I updated all my drivers for my network card and whatnot, and it didn't seem to help. The only thing that got me somewhat better speeds is using the USB tethering on my phone but that was barely an improvement. So I did a few tests. First, I did a speedtest on my phone to make sure it's got a good 4G connection. Here's the result:
More than fast enough. So I looked at the connection speed in the Windows network properties for the connection:
Again, checks out. With these two bits of info, I shouldn't be having a problem right? Well here's the speedtest result for the laptop (using Chrome):
Now idk about ya'll, but that don't make no sense to me. It's the same results on my fiance's WiFi. I've had this laptop connected to the internet before, both wired and through WiFi, without issues. What could be causing this? Is it possible the networking card is somehow damaged all of a sudden? I do have the creator's update installed, but I've used WiFi since installing it without problems. Even played Overwatch on it. Please help, I just wanna watch some dang Rick and Morty.
