I am currently studying information technology with a specialization in Network Administration, and I have this issue I am trying to understand.
I went to my mom's workplace and I overheard her and her office mates complaining about the slow internet speed and that it comes and goes (Request Timed Out).
So they called an IT guy and the man said the reason the internet was slowing down was one of the PCs in the office has low RAM. He said when the person using that particular device opens multiple tabs and the PC starts lagging, it causes the internet to slow down for all of the other PCs connected to the AP. His solution is they should add RAM to the PCs.
I kind of doubt that solution. Why would one particular PC affect anybody else's connection because of low RAM? Does the IT guy's statement make sense?
There are 3 desktops and 5 laptops connected to the access point.
