Default Ever since i got a new laptop ive had slow internet

So ive gotten a new laptop and i connected it to the wireless and ever since then my internet has been almost unbariable, I will have moments of good internet but most of the time the internet is so slow and compared to what it used to be its horrid.

At times i will have to restart the router as no internet gets through until i restart it.

Would appreciate any and all help.
Thanks

How many Wifi devices are on your network when it cuts out entirely? and is it at a certain time of day? Sounds like one hella bottleneck to me.

It can cut out any time as far as i can tell, i will sometimes turn my computer on in the morning and have to restart the router.

Were you using wireless before? Is the wireless card in your new laptop a different protocol, perhaps, like .11b instead of .11g?

since you got the new laptop, have all the computers gone slow if you have more than 1. if you only have 1 it could be either the computer or the router but if you got a new router, it is most likely the new computer
