Hopefully someone can help with this.
I currently have M250 broadband and for the majority of my devices I get wireless download speeds of around 260mbs almost without fail. There are, of course, occasional drops at peak times or with high usage which is to be expected. That's not a problem.
My laptop however is a different story. Every time I turn that on and run a speed test I will get around 160mbs every time, without fail. I then perform what has become a bit of a ritual where I log onto my Hub 3 and change any wireless setting (I usually just switch the "intelligent" WiFi on or off, depending on what I did last time) which will force a minor reset where all devices disconnect and re-connect within a few seconds. I can then run another speed test and it will give me the same 260mbs as everything already does and will remain consistent until I turn the laptop off. When I next turn it on, I'm back to 160mbs and I have to perform the ritual again.
It is so completely predictable that it cannot be put down to the unpredictable nature of wireless connections and no other device does this.
Can someone offer any advice as to why this might be? I think it must be something to do with the handshake between the laptop and router but have no idea how stop it from happening.
