    After connecting to the internet on my laptop, the internet connection will work great for 3-4 minutes or less than it slows down drastically or essentially not working at all. If I disconnect and reconnect the wifi, it will work again but just for a short amount of time. The wireless connection works great on other laptops.
    I have Mcafee Antivirus which is not showing any virus or malware attack. Tried restoring the computer to factory settings and the internet stays connected for what seem a few minutes longer. Please help. :)
