    I have a laptop running Windows 7 that has an issue with extremely slow internet speeds. There are several other laptops at the house that can access the internet perfectly fine at normal speeds.

    Our home network is called "freed", however, this laptop seems to be connected to a network called "freed 2". It says it's connected, but it runs at extremely slow speeds and disconnects frequently. I tried unplugging the router and plugging it back it, to no success. I have also deleted the wireless profile to the "freed" network on the laptop and tried reconnecting to it, however, when it reconnects, it does so to "freed 2" although it's labeled as "freed" in the list of available wireless networks.

    I have also ran Windows troubleshooting, and it'll often say something to the effect of "The default port is unavailable, and/or your ip address is not valid."

    Any help towards fixing this problem would be much appreciated!
