wireless internet on home way too slow on laptop

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I have a home network that works well with all of my computers and guest but this laptop I'm on is WAY too slow.  It's the only one that is.  This is what I have tried:
Reset the modem (Comcast)
I don't have a]the adapter to hard wire with cable to test.
I've tried Firefox and Explorer. Explorer is a little better.
This computer processes everything fast just not connecting to the internet and downloading.
The home network shows up and says it has a good signal.
Any wireless router works fine other than my home one where all other computers work fine.
I'm standing by on this computer if anyone has a suggestion to try.
