  1. I've always had connection problems with my laptop, but I blamed it on my college's awful WiFi because everyone has problems with it. But I always seem to have more trouble than other people, and now that I'm back home with good WiFi, I'm still having problems. Basically my download speed varies anywhere from 100 kbps to 15 mbps, and my upload speed is about the same only the max is closer to 5 mbps. One minute everything is running smoothly, and then a page that shouldn't take any time to load at all will get stuck halfway through. Either it won't finish, or it'll take anywhere from a few minutes to a half hour to load completely. Same thing happens during the speed tests - it's downloading just fine, and then the progress bar will just freeze halfway through and it'll take who knows how long to get going again. I've updated my drivers, quarantined malware, and dumped my cache to see if that would help, but it's not making any difference. None of the other computers in the house are like this and my dad's laptop gets anywhere from 15 to 20 mbps for downloads when I run the test on there. My computer's performance is otherwise fine. Any ideas what could be wrong? I apologize in advance as I'm fairly computer illiterate, so I might need you to break it down for me.
