    I am experiencing really slow wifi on my laptop. I have the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6235 wifi card in this laptop and running Windows 7 64bit.

    When I am close to the router I have no problem, but when about 12 meters away at my desk, my internet speed drops to snail pace even though I have 4/5 bar wifi signal. I have an HTC One, Google Nexus 7, another laptop all working absolutely fine from the same location

    I have updated to the latest drivers, I have ran a deep virus scan, I have changed the Wifi channels on the router, and currently using channel 1. Nothing has had any effect. I'm looking for some ideas. Can anyone help?

    Could you post some information on the type of router or modem you are using to connect via WiFi?
