Hi there. I just got a brand new Medion laptop with Windows 11 and despite everything being up to date, the laptop will only download at around 3.4mbps. My console downloads at 30mbps so I'm not sure why there's such a disparity. I've tried searching the internet but it just says update the drivers but as far as windows is concerned, everything is up to date.

These are its specs:

Intel Core i5-10300H Quad Core Processor
15.6" Full HD IPS Screen
Windows 11 Home 64-bit
8GB DDR4 RAM
256GB M.2 NVMe SSD
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB Graphics
USB 3.2 Type-C | HDMI | WiFi 6

Hi. Thank you so much for your reply. I'm connecting to a 5Ghz network. When I plug the laptop into the router the download speed stayed the same at around 3.4mbps

I have a Booster so upstairs has better connection. I've had it for years and had no problems. Download speeds on everything else, such as other laptop, MacBook, and console are around 30mbps

Thank you for all your help. When testing my download speed via Speedtest by Ookla it shows a 20.27mbps download speed. But when downloading via any game launcher it's always below 4mbps.

Measuring from a game launcher/server is a completely different thing. There may be factors (on the other end) that you have no control over and has nothing to do with your actual throughput (as measured by speedtest, for example).

I suspect you are fine.

Okay. Thank you. It's very strange to me still because previous laptops have downloaded these games at a much quicker rate. Thank you so much for all your help.
