I am facing this problem for a couple of days. I use a laptop and I connect it with an USB wireless dongle. For a few days my internet connection gets slow whenever I connect my pc to router. Not only my internet gets down, everyone connected to the router is also faces same and if I ping router ip it shows request time out. Sometimes it gets ping but more than 2000ms+ always. At first I thought router problem but it does to every router I connect. If I disconnect network becomes normal. I changed dingle, reinstalled windows, reinstalled drivers. My task manager doesn’t have any unusual activity. I have checked “ipconfig” and no problem there.

Please help me I am going crazy

Make and model of your router? You might want to see if you have any firmware updates pending for your router. On another note, why are you using a wireless dongle on your laptop, it should come bundled with a wireless adapter to have a built in WiFi solution.

My Laptops wifi card is not working, thats why i am using it ... Another thing is when I connect through ethernet it works OK. My router is updated. I have checked several routers like my office, friends house etc. Problem is same.
