Very slow internet connection no Alienware M17x R3

I am having a bit issue with Alienware M17x R3 laptop. I am not able to get proper internet speed on the same. It is very slow. The same net works really fine on my tablet. But when I connect it on the laptop through wifi it takes long time to open Google. Sometime there is page not found error. I am bit stuck with the same. Is there a option available through which I can simply boost up the internet speed. I had tried reconnecting.

Just launch cmd in your system and type ping google.com and hit enter. If you are getting a very high ping rate then it means you are having some connectivity issue. Try to update your wifi drivers. You can find that on the official site of alienware. Just download and update the driver and test back. This will surely resolve the issue. But if this does not work then you have to test the connect through a lan cable.

Updating the drivers must fix the issue. For that you have to simply download the fresh copy and install them. If this does not work then your wifi hardware has some issue. You have to use the lan port. I had this issue on very old laptop that simply drops the connection continuously on wifi. But the same works really well when you are on lan support. I then bought a usb wifi adapter which worked.
