INconsistent wifi connection

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • 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 🙂

Hi:

 

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.

 

Wifi:  2024.0.10.218

Bluetooth:  1.8.1030.3010

 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.

Your phone may be defaulting to its 4G network w/o you knowing. 

Try connecting to your router with a cable and see if there's a difference (mine is 3x wifi).

Then do a speed test via cable vs. wifi.

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.
