    My Wi-Fi is really slow on Windows but really fast on Android


    When I use my Wi-Fi on Android it's really fast, but when I use it on Windows it's really slow. I noticed that on windows when I open Youtube and Google it's fast no problem and I can load 4K videos without buffer, but I tried loading Amazon and Speedtest.net it wouldn't load the page. My Wi-Fi is a business Wi-Fi and it is at 100 mb/s. Any help would be appreciated and thank you in advance.

    You might need to update the wifi drivers or buy a new wifi card.
    Is your wifi dual band? If so is the computer using the 5G band?

    I have SOLVED this


    Finally after so many internet searches I have found the solution, I don't know why nobody has mentioned this fix online, basically what I did was first change the DNS server to automatically obtain DNS:
    Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings
    Then right click your Wi-Fi and click properties. Double click internet protocol version 4 and check 'Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically. Then close. After that go to CMD and run as Admin do the command "ipconfig/flushdns". Then go to device manager>Network adapter choose your Wi-Fi Adapter mine is Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 3165 right click the adapter and choose update, choose browse my computer and then choose let me pick from a list, choose the first version on the list and BAM the Wi-Fi should work, hope it worked, good luck
