My gaming laptop is literally donwloading at 500kbps while my phone and my old laptop are both donwloading at 10mbps

I really dont understand what is the problem, its not a signal issue because im having full signal strenght, and what weirds me out the most is that when i do a speedtest on my devices all of them give me 100mbps in download and upload even my gaming pc and stills download at 500kbps

I have already updated the drivers and reinstalled them im truly out of ideas I have a intel wifi 6 ax201 if its anyhelp , I have also used Testmy.net and in my gaming laptop it gives me 4mbps but on my other devices it gives me 80+mbps

I dont have issues with lag or when im using the internet like 4k videos load in an instant Its just when i try to download something that it just takes forever and lately Its been a huge issue pls help
 
I would look for any form of QoS or so called "gaming" acceleration software. This stuff causes all kinds strange problem.

I would next test with ethernet this allows you to say eliminate a defect wifi card.

You can also try a old program called IPERF and test transfer between your machines. If you where to have ethernet on both side it should get 900+mbps in both directions. On wifi it is hard to say but it should be much more than 500kbps
