Wireless connection speed is /heavily/ affected by the local environment:

- number and type of any walls etc between laptop & router

- other 2.4GHz sources such as phones, microwaves, TV senders etc

- neighbours' wireless networks.

- interference from other electrical equipment

- orientation of antennae on router and laptop

and so forth.
