PC/laptop working and processing so much harder on low quality connection

Why PC, mainly laptop, wifi is working and processing so much harder and more heavily when the internet data it receives is at low speed and/or intermittent, as opposed and not due to weak wifi signal strength i.e. its low dB.

What actually is whichever processor(s) is/are working and/or searching on, and what actually has triggered it/them to obligatorily working and processing in such the mentioned conditioned ?
How do we mitigate or solve this (mainly my) problem ?

Lots of retry attempts will make the CPU more busy, especially if the wifi adapter is a lower end one with little "smarts" in it. That makes the software driver do more work.
