This past week, my internet speed on my laptop has been really slow. I get a maximum of 2 bars on the wifi icon and I drop to one bar every 2 minutes or so and sometimes I even disconnect from the network. I've ran speed tests on both my phone and my laptop at the same time at the same location but my laptop usually averages around 8-12Mbps while my phone usually goes above 70+ Mbps. Is this some sort of virus? The only fix for this is if I get right next to the router which is odd because I usually use my laptop in my bedroom and for the past year I haven't had a single issue with connection issues regarding my laptop except for this past week.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling your networking adapter's drivers. Mind sharing the make and model of your laptop, including the SKU?
I have a Lenovo Y520-15IKBN. I believe the SKU is PF0Z23H0. I just uninstalled all my network adapter drivers and reinstalled and nothing worked.
