    I am unsure what speed is being paid for so I do not know really if the speed I get from different speed tests is close to paid speeds. I get usually ~20Mbps down and ~6Mbps up.

    Also there is no way to re position the router. Also where could I get a driver besides the one given by Intel? Would one by realtek work even though it is an Intel card?

    With low signal strengths you are not going to get good speeds between you and router.

    Did you shut off WiFi Sense and all the options below those words?

    As to driver you could start with looking to see which one is on Toshiba site. No you cannot use Realtek.

    I found this on Techspot. I would trust them. That said, scan the file when you download it. The decision to load rests with you. You can also search web for drivers by searching "Drivers Intel AC7265"

    Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers 17.1.1532.1813 Driver - TechSpot

    If you scroll down this page you will see a driver for Windows 8 64 or 32 bit V16.10.0 dated February 27, 2014.

    Create a restore point. If this works, please protect the downloaded file as I find major Windows updates will install "New", then you have to re-install.

    Please post back results. I would try shutting of Wi-Fi Sense first.

    Ok the Internet still has its stalls (~6 seconds to fully load but for now its working. It may stop later on in the day or night time. Also wifi sense is disabled. I installed the v 17.x.x driver you mentioned and it is what I am using now. Hopefully I can have some stable Internet.

    Great. With my device this made it very stable.

    This will not help with speed. To help speed up web sites appearing you need to search for extensions that prevents distractions from downloading.

    I strongly believe your speed issue is with the router but I understand there are limitations as to what can be done.
