It's definitely not the wifi reception. My old hp laptop has no wifi issues, my phone too. I've tested them at the exact same point of the house. I'm wondering if this problem is a common issue with the zenbook ux330ua or i just got a faulty laptop. Thanks for your answers
True. Also if there is anything installed that 'shouldn't' be (malware, virus, etc.) that can also slow down a connection due to it accessing the internet. And, any stray programs that are running can cause it as well.
