Need some help with this, I've been trying to download GTA V on my new PC, but download speeds have been incredibly slow, so I have tested by placing my laptop and desktop in the same place and running speedtest, and my laptop gets download speeds of around 17-18 mbps and an upload of 2.8 mbps, while my desktop only gets around 4-6 mbps and an upload of 2 mbps.

I've been wondering if the problem is with the wifi cards?
My laptop has the intel dual band wireless-ac 3165, but my desktop has a wise tiger adapter (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01M0Q51UI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Also ethernet is not an option for me.
