I currently am using a TP-Link Archer T2U wifi adapter for my gaming PC. For the past two weeks, everytime I try to use my computer, the internet is really slow! I used to get 30-40mbps download and 10mbps upload.
Here are some of my speedtest results on my computer vs. on my phone on MY CONNECTION:
Test 1 - PING=10ms Download=39.77Mbps Upload=13.16Mbps
Test 2 - PING=11ms Download=38.75Mbps Upload=10.41Mbps
Test 3 - PING=11ms Download=42.09Mbps Upload=12.30Mbps
Test 1 - PING=14ms Download=2.64Mbps Upload=1.05Mbps
Test 2 - PING=24ms Download=2.10Mbps Upload=0.94Mbps
Test 3 - PING=16ms Download=2.74Mbps Upload=0.85Mbps
Both of these were tested on the same server! As you can see the computer is significantly lower than the phone. I used to get basically the exact same speeds on each of them.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, that got me to like 5mb up/down on my computer for a few hours and then it was back to the speeds above. I updated Windows 10 a few minutes ago and it somehow shot my speeds up to around 8mb up 3 down.
BUT here's the twist. I went to my friends house and brought my computer to test and see if it was the adapter or something else. When I tested on his house I got a steady 50mbps Up 30mbps Down on both the phone AND the computer.
My question for you guys is, what do you think the issue is? I really don't want to go buy another wifi adapter if the same thing is going to happen. I read that one guy formatted his drive and that fixed his (he had the same model adapter as me) but I don't really want to risk all of my games if it's not really going to for sure work.
