- Hi I'm having a network connection issue with my laptop I have HP Laptop - 14s-fq0443no and it has a Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac Adapter WIFI card. it just has been 2 months since I have this laptop the internet speed is very inconsistent and sometimes I have trouble of streaming videos, gaming and loading pages. the internet itself is fine when I use my phone and there is no problem with the router because I tried to contact my ISP about it. the only problem that I have is that the laptop is inconsistently receiving internet hoping someone can help
if there is any suggestion feel free to tell 🙂

The only suggestion I can offer would be to update both the wifi and bluetooth drivers to their latest versions and see if that helps.

My house is 1200 sq ft. I see variations in wifi signal strength depending on what room I'm in. I have purchased materials to install Ethernet in the house. Of late, the network is fine but the Internet keeps dropping and I have to reset the router via Infinity's software. Some problems seem to be bandwidth related owing to public schools going remote.

I have updated both drivers and still having the same issue. I find it weird somehow that on my phone the speed of the interne is the way it was and if I checked it on my laptop it is lower and tend to drop it took me even a while to download the drivers. any other solutions you can suggest maybe. thank you for helping btw 🙂

You're very welcome.
Unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions for you to try.
That model wifi card and the related RTL8822BE are renowned for having constant connection and other related issues.
I don't know why HP continues to use those wifi cards in their notebooks.

I just did a speed test at my house in Atlanta.
Via wifi, the download is 30 Mbps. On ethernet, it is over 120 Mbps.
On my tMobile phone, I got 40Mbps via my wifi 5G. I got 4Mbps directly with tMobile's 4Glte
Try connecting to your provider's website and see if they can reset the router from their end. Be careful b/c it may change the network addresses on your wifi.
