I'm having a problem with my laptop getting slow wifi speeds. I know it isn't my ISP because the speed is slow just trying to transfer files from my desktop to this laptop as well. All my other computers are getting great speed.

Is there any way to replace the wifi antenna in a laptop or do I just have to go buy a usb wifi adapter?

What mode is your router set to in the wireless settings? If your router is set to the wrong mode, you'll see the issues you're describing. You'll want to match your router mode to your laptop wifi adapter mode.

Replacing the wifi antenna isn't really a feasible solution, and likely wouldn't make any difference. To test that, take the laptop within 5 feet of the router, and see if anything improves.

300mbps. It worked just fine for the last 5 months and now it slowed down and only on this laptop. I don't see how that could be the issue at all.
