Windows 10: Laptop WiFi slowed down to a crawl

    Laptop WiFi slowed down to a crawl

    Device: Toshiba Satellite C55-C5241.
    OS: Windows 10 x64 (Pre Installed)
    ISP: Suddenlink
    WiFi Router: Netgear N600 Wireless Double band router (WNDR3400v3). Firmware version V1.0.0.38_1.0.40

    I get a low speed of 0.3 Mbps on the laptop through WiFi whereas the same WiFi gives about 30Mbps bandwidth on my android phone. Could you please help me troubleshoot? I'll be glad to provide more information

    The speed is back to normal (30 Mbps). It might be due to one of these reasons:

    1) Another user was logged into Ubuntu (Ubuntu is sometimes known to usurp the WiFi bandwidth from other laptops and PCs while using certain Broadcom device drivers)
    2) Upgraded the router firmware.

I use wired ethernet on my laptop, so the wireless goes unused. Thus, I'm wondering if it's possible to set up my laptop as an AP, so that devices like my smartphone can get a better signal when plugged in for charging.
