I have an HP Envy M6 Sleekbook with the AMD Elite A10 quad core processor and RALINK wireless. The wireless connection is terrible I went from 7MB/sec on my last laptop to 800KB/sec on this one. I thought maybe the signal was weak so I bought a WIFI booster, but I am still getting the same download speed, I cannot get it any higher no matter what I do, I tried to exchange the laptop and I am having the same issue, why are the download speeds so incredible slow on this laptop, I can't even stream movies from my network to the laptop because everything is choppy. Anyone have any ideas about how to fix it?

I see that you are having problems with the internet speed on the wireless internet for your HP computer. I have some suggestions that may help with this issue.
Have you tried to update the wireless adapter drivers for the computer? To do that you can run the Windows updates on the computer. It is normally a optional update. If you cannot find an update this way then you can also look in through the device manager. Under the network adapter tab you should see the wireless adapter.
Let me know the name of the wireless adapter driver.

Exact same problem with my m6 (same computer). The only thing I've found for weeks now is update drivers, and no other real help. Would really appreciate a true fix to the problem with this model.

Thanks lostandbound. FINALLY, someone gives me an answer. And I completely agree, great specs for a laptop. But in modern.. well.. anything, internet is almost most important. I'm disappointed HP. Honestly. Similar threads are all over the web about this and several other modern laptop models. This is really a disappointmented and the pretty penny I paid for this laptop is wasted. A thousand points to lostandboud for telling how it is.

One thing I found to be of big help is the following: In any search engine type "TCP optimizer" one of the first selections should read "SpeedGuide.net :: TCP Optimizer / Downloads" click on it. Now (should be at the top) click on " TCP Optimizer v3.0.8" then on the bottom click "RUN" Under General setting you will see a slidebar, slide it ALL THE WAY to the right to the maximum MBPS, no matter the internet speed you currently have. Reeboot, see if you notice a difference in internet speed. I hope this helps. Mike
