    Both using windows 10 on the same model asus laptop.

    When both are online : One laptop is always browsing fast on the wifi, one is always browsing slow.

    The slow browsing laptop was always fast before the other laptop arrived.

    What can i do?

    The router is a standard home router.

    Wifi is 4g using a sim card in the router.

    Please help good people.

    My suggestion is to confirm that you have the latest drivers installed for the wifi adapters. Upgrading the drivers can help with some problems.

    IP conflicts on a LAN usually manifests itself as intermittent network connectivity problems and not slowness. While you'll see the wireless connection still up, there won't be any network traffic being passed due to the IP conflict problems.

    OP, have you checked to see if the problem isn't a 4G service saturation issue?
