Slow vaio internet connection is half as fast as two older laptops on the same table. 3

My Vaio is only 2 weeks old and internet connection is half the speed of two older laptops sitting on the same table.  Why is it so slow?  I get between 17mbps and 33 mbps on older units and this one is always about half of that.

Hello Kayvey,

Welcome to the Sony Community.

 

If the computer is installed with the wireless standard of 802.11b/g/n, it supports the maximum speed of 2.5 GHz. If the computer is installed with the wireless standard of 802.11a/b/g/n, then it supports the maximum speed of 5GHz. Please check the wireless standard of both the computers.

 

However, I’ve provided the troubleshooting for the wireless below:

 

Try re-installing the wireless driver. You can download the driver by putting the model # of your computer here: http://esupport.sony.com/

 

Next, follow all the steps mentioned here: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1007553

 

If the issue persists, contact Sony Telephone Support Team here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/support-contacts.pl?mdltype_id=24

 

Regards,

Miguael

Hi Mrkunal,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

We're sorry to hear this. To assist you better, what is the model name and the current operating system of your computer?
