Dell G3 3579 WiFi less than 1Mbps

Hi,

Is anyone else having issues with their new Dell G3 wifi? I did a speed test and it's always around 0.8Mbps.

Tried out the following:

None of them worked!
The fact that Wi-Fi didn't work using a usb adapter worries me a lot.

Has anyone else been facing this issue or is it only me?

Re: Dell G3 3579 WiFi less than 1Mbps

After installing OS Windows 10 Pro on my laptop it was unable to install both display drivers Intell and Nvidia. So, I installed all the Windows Updates and now both display drivers installed automatically. My Google Crome browser works very slow after updates installation. I think it is a wifi driver problem, because I installed the Opera browser and it works slow too. The wifi driver reinstallation didn't help.

Re: Dell G3 3579 WiFi less than 1Mbps

I have the exact same issue.  I received my G3 yesterday 9/4/2018.  I ran all updates, updated all drivers and I still get around 1Mbps download and strangely around 6Mbps upload.  I've tried 4 different browsers and speed tests as well.  It is NOT my wifi, I have multiple other devices connected at over 175Mbps down and 10+Mbps upload.  I have a multi-band commercial grade wifi system so again it's not my wifi signal strength or signal degradation.  I would like to see how Dell responds to this before opening up a trouble ticket.

Yes My G3 3579's wifi is extremely slow.  I even swapped out the 9462 for a 9260 intel wifi card.  Still the same speeds.  : /
