    My laptop uses a WLAN connection and I connect when I use it at home to my Linksys router. Wh en I start using the Internet, my connectivity is 54 Mbps during my connection. Then my connectivity drops from 54 to 1.1 Mbps and makes my system slow and sometimes disconnects me from my router. What causes this? Any idea! Reply me!

    Distance from the router, obstructions in the signal path, interference could all cause it. It's hard to say without knowing more.

    Then why laptops are costly than a PC?

    Mate, one of us has no idea what's going on and sadly, I think it's me.

    Why you are confused? Is there anything difficult?

    This is why we're confused. I can't make any sense of it. Super Macho Man and later DoFoT9 have offered some excellent aspect to consider but you're not giving us any feedback as to which it may be.

    What does that have to do with anything? Perhaps you think that because the laptop costs more money, it should work just fine. But if there's something completely independent of your laptop causing these issues, then it's not your laptop's fault.

    Are you nearby a cordless phone or a microwave oven that's in use? Those can kill a WiFi signal pretty quickly
