  1. What browser are you using?
    Try clearing the cache and erasing all the cookies and history

    If not, set static DNS on your laptop's wireless adapter

    Ive tried using, firefox, internet explorer, and google crome. And none of them will work. It will load google, give me search suggestions, and once i click on a link, it wont load. At all. And in internet explorer after a while of trying to load it just gives up and says it cant connect. My connection is fine. I have a desktop that is connected and it works just fine, no problems. I cleared the cookies and everything on google crome, but still nothing.
  3. Try setting static DNS on your laptop's wireless adapter
    How to check for the DNS? On your desktop go to cmd --> ipconfig /all and search for the DNS under the Ethernet Local Area Connection, then set them into your laptop and see if it works
    Do you have the same problem with other programs like skype or is it just the browser?

    Also, you may need to update your wireless adapter drivers

    Its windows 7. The problem occurs with every website other than google, and social networks. it works with facebook, twitter, tumblr. but when i tried loading websites like this one or ebay, amazon, or pandora, it wont load.

    As for my speed, i use my phones mobile hotspot, but that shouldnt make a difference because my desktop works just fine with it. But the speeds are Download speed: 11.27 Mbps and the upload speed is: 4.87Mbps
  8. The problem is your laptop wireless adapter most likely, try updating it's drivers
