    Massive download speed drop after update


    Hello,


    recently my internet download speed went from a 80-84Mbps to max of 5Mbps, I only work with ethernet cables and can't seem to get this fixed. This problem occurred on both my laptop and desktop, while other computers in the house work perfectly fine with a network cable, so it seems the problem is only with my devices. After running another update on my laptop, this problem seems to be fixed.


    On my desktop however nothing seems to work. I already ran virus scans to see if it maybe could be malware (clean), I deleted the network driver and re-installed it (no result), changed the network cable multiple times (no result), ran Windows Update (there are no more updates), did a 2 system restores but they both failed. Also I can't seem to reverse the latest Windows Update.


    My router is fine, so the problem lies within the desktop itself.


    As this is my main computer and I work in the IT sector, it's very frustrating that I can't seem to solve this problem and that my internet is not as optimal as it should be.


    Attached I have the result that I'm currently getting, which normally would be 82Mbps.

    :)

    Slow Download Speed

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft forums.

    • I would suggest you to test the speed using any of the speed test website or app to confirm the upload and download speed.
    • I also suggest you to reset the wireless router to check if that helps.
    • You may plug in the Ethernet cable if available and check the speed.


    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you
