    I am using 2 Lumia 535 with Windows Phone 8.1, The WiFi speed on all my devices in the house is excellent except my two windows phones 8.1. I also have a phone running Windows 7.8 and had HTC surround WP 7.5 both working great. the only problem i face is with WP 8.1...
    Why is it so? Why does Microsoft have to run towards its doom?
    Let the truth be told, WM6.5 was a hundred times better than what they achieved today with WP8.1/10. Even symbian was better

    We've got the same firmware and OS versions...not sure why you're experiencing slow download speeds. Since you indicated that they have no problems with your laptop "virtual router", it seems that the problem is not with your phones but rather with your router.

    You may want to check the router settings and check if something like "smart switching" or any bandwidth throttling setting is active. From a similar thread just a few days ago, you may also try setting the 802.11 to a fixed value if it is in auto... either "b" or "g", whichever works. However, the issue for the other thread was being disconnected as opposed to having slow download speed.

    Welcome to Windows Central.

    What variant of the Lumia 535 are you using (Single SIM or Dual SIM)? Also, what OS Version and Firmware revision numbers does your L535 have? This can be seen in Settings > About. Make sure, in the meantime, to check for the latest updates for your phone in Settings > phone update.

    I don't seem to be experiencing any issues with my Wi-Fi connection through my L535.

    Both are dual sim.
    Both are Wp8.1. I installed the 'update 2' on one of the phone via windows insider app.
    The second one is still on Wp8.1 Update 1.
    Whenever I create a virtual router in my laptop, both phones connect to it and work fine. But i am unable to use internet via directly connecting to the router
