    I have a Lenovo laptop low memory slow but works ok -with Win 10-64
    when on WIFI wireless only connected I noticed when I am on SKYPE and sending a message to others the message spins for ever and would not send. Other software and email GMAIL goes out normal.

    While WIFI wireless is connected and I insert a Net cable direct from the Modem (local Cable Internet Provider) both together the speed goes normal and as fast as it could be.

    Can someone explain it

    Let's first gather some info, execute bellow commands (powershell - Admin)

    Get-NetIPAddress | Out-File c:\ipAddress.txt
    Get-NetIPInterface | Out-File c:\ipInterface.txt
    Get-NetIPConfiguration | Out-File c:\ipConfig.txt
    Get-NetIPv4Protocol | Out-File c:\ipv4.txt
    Get-NetIPv6Protocol | Out-File c:\ipv6.txt
    Get-NetRoute | Out-File c:\route.txt
    Get-NetAdapter | Select * | Out-File c:\adapter.txt
    netsh wlan show networks > c:\networks.txt

    Note, files (adapter.txt and networks.txt) may expose details about networks around you and your computer name.
    Take a look into those files, if you're fine with that:

    zip up the files found in C:\ drive root and post here.

    files: adapter.txt and networks.txt, you can send them separately to my inbox if you wish.

    By nature WiFi is slower than Ethernet. If are able to, stay connected to the Ethernet connection.

    You may have a speed issue on wireless. To test, make sure you don't have the Ethernet connection active and run a speed test on the wireless.
