I built a custom pc recently, and I'm starting to have issues with the wifi speed. I tried resetting the router, and I even checked the speed on other devices connected to the network and it was very fast. I uninstalled and reinstalled my wifi drivers, and I changed the speed of the network adapter from 2.4 GHz to 5 GHz, but still there was no change. I also tried resetting graphics drivers and anything else I could find on the internet that might up the speed. If anyone knows anything I can do to get my wifi up to speed so it can stop running so slowly, please let me know I would be very grateful.
Pc specs for further information: Motherboard: MSI MPG x570 Gaming Edge Wifi.

Lets start with your speed test results. What kind of speeds are you actually seeing? Also, how far from the router are you? What's the signal strength at that range? Do you have another devices that test faster than the new PC?
I am seeing a download speed of about 1-4 megabits per second and an upload speed of about 0.5 megabits. I'm about 10 feet away from the router, and the current signal strength is 2 out of 5 bars, with a speed of about 3 Mbps. All my family's phones, laptops and tablets are running a lot faster than my pc. Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks!
You attached the antennas that were included to the rear I/O, correct?
No, I did not and I just found them in the motherboard box, I'll attach them right now.
Wifi is running a lot faster, it seems to be working a lot better now with the antennas attached, thank you!
Glad to hear that helped. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
