    So i had AT&T install my internet with all new equipment 3 times. Apparently all my devices
    (EXCEPT laptop and desktop) are receiving 100 mbps like it is suppose to, and i even hard wired the laptop and desktop and they worked fine. Because of the layout of my apartment, i cant hard wire my computers. The wifi speedtest for the laptop and desktop are at 47 download and 29 upload, and yes i tried different servers. The technicians scanner and tablet was working fine as well, and he couldn't figure it out either. SO, is it a coincidence that the laptop and desktop wifi isn't working at full function? Could it be Windows updates causing the problem? Or are both my computers wifi screwed up?

    @MrAwesome1968, I've removed your email address as that is a great way to end up getting loads of spam.

    thanks,

    Make and model of each of these slow machines?

    They just may be ones that are using older network cards which are much slower than the new ones of today?

    Lots of variables with wifi and those speeds are probably about right depending on your equipment, etc. As mentioned would help to have the information on your wifi adapters and router.
