"Have you tried turning it off and on again?"
On a serious note, it seems like you are on a Wireless Network which means there a be few causes.1) The signal strength
, as you move further from the access point; your signal strength decreases. So yes, distance from the access point could be a factor.2) Interference
, you may or may not be aware that other appliances which broadcast electronic signals can impede your wireless network. If your access point is surrounded by other household electronics it could very well need to be relocated. 3) Network strain
, Latency can also be caused by multiple users on the same network or background processes eating up bandwidth. Check with other people that use your network (if there are others that use your network) and see if they have any problems with the network's performance3) Your network card or settings
; While unlikely as problems of this nature tend to cause a lack of connectivity altogether, you may be experiencing poor performance by being logged under the wrong network or have some damage on your Network Interface Card but addressing this this should only be used as a after you have tried everything else.My advice
; Either move your machine or access point. I believe your dip in network performance is more than like caused by a lack of signal strength or potential interference. If moving things doesn't work I'd recommend setting up a wired network (although this may require assistance from your ISP)
or alternatively you can contact your ISP to see if your settings and such are correct or if there are any potential problems on their end,
only after having exhausted all other possibilities
should you take it in to be looked at by a professional.
