Default Bad internet on my laptop.

It seems to me that I have terrible internet on my laptop and is quite annoying. Everything is just slow and I was wondering how I would be able to speed it up. I am new with computer so sorry if I am having a hard time trying to understand.

Are you running wireless or wired? In any case, your network port might be bad.

I had to replace the Wireless card on my Dell laptop, because it would keep losing a connection.

Wireless depends on many things, how far you are from the router and how many walls and electrical devices it has to go through, A/B/G/N signals, etc.
