Hi gary777

For router, it is best to put up as high as possible, central location, if possible.

Ensure no obstacle items around, especially those, such as; cordless phone, microwave, etc.
These devices are using 2.4GHz band, and these will cause interference to your wireless connection.
This include wall between the router and laptop, which may reduce the bandwidth.

That DW WLAN Card Utility caused so many connectivity problems that the company where I work for no longer includes it in the OS image that gets installed on new laptops. Maybe the utility has improved lately. I've not used it for years.

If I have to reinstall or update the wireless NIC, I download the software from Dell, let the installer extract the files (but not install them) - then I use device manager to point the device to the folder where the files of interest are.

Your speed issue might be caused by your router. See if you can get a friend or two to bring their laptop's over for a few download tests.
Thank for all the info. My router is very old The other wireless devices are two different ipads are getting the same speed. I agree it's time for a new router. It is and old Netgear n-150. I think I will take my laptop here and go to a neighbors house and see how it does.
