Laptop Affecting Wi-Fi Connection of Other Devices

Both mine and my brother's HP laptops work fine, but they often slow the connection down of all other devices connected to the Wi-Do significantly. I don't think the problem is with the Wi-Fi, as other laptops such as Asus or older HPs do not impact the connection. Any suggestions on this, specifically for HP laptops.

Apart from ~ The more pieces of equipment that you have using a WiFi Source, the slower the download speed of each individual piece using it will be, of course.

If one person is using it and another joins them, the download speed of the first will halve.

Plus HPs are renown for being full of their own software running in the background and taking up resources some of which may accessing the internet.

Possibly worth checking what's running and disabling some unnecessary things.
