Both using windows 10 on the same model asus laptop.

When both are online : One laptop is always browsing fast on the wifi, one is always browsing slow.

The slow browsing laptop was always fast before the other laptop arrived.

What can i do? 

The router is a standard home router.

Wifi is 4g using a sim card in the router.

Please help good people.

Hi Mark Knight,

 

The browsing speed may have to do with multiple connections at once. I know at home on my older router when a few of us are online (especially watching youtube!) it slows it down significantly. The fact that you're browsing with 4g definitely wouldn't help the case. 

 

What model is your router, where are you based (location roughly) and your provider? Someone might be able to offer some more advice. 

 

Otherwise contact your internet provider, they will more than likely have an answer for you. :)

 

Keep us posted.

Ummm, this is very strange. Are you sure that the settings are correct? Try to update them. I always use hints from 192.168.1.1 There're lots of instructions and hope your Internet connection will be restored.
