  2. All browsers slow after Windows 10 upgrade

    I'm in the same boat. Using my iPhone to look up Microsoft community answers because my Win10 web browsing is like walking in treacle. It's like dial-up from the 90s again. This is for my main browser Firefox but also the Microsoft Edge (that I never/rarely
    use). I've switched off Nortons AV but that didn't improve it. The home wi-fi connection is fine, and speed tests are fine. Wi-fi connnecting to Apple iPhones and iPad just fine too.

    When I tethered my Win10 laptop to the iPhone and then over 4G the browsing speed significantly improved. Partly the 4G runs at 20mbps whereas home wi-fi is 10mbps, but even so it seems there is no Win10 problem when tethered, but there is when trying to
    connect to home broadband (UK, using BT standard wi-fi service).

    Something in the last 4-5 days has gone wrong with the Win10 settings causing all browsers to run incredibly slow. I see others have posted above in recent days, and hopefully MS can find a solution to this problem.

  3. USB Tethering for Windows Phone 10 Internet Sharing

    USB tethering would save me a lot of pain.

    At the moment, I'm having to use blue tooth tethering at the office because over the past 2 to 3 weeks something in the environment is interfering with the Lumia Wi-Fi Hotspot 2.4 GHz Channel 11 broadcast. Connecting to the phone's Wi-Fi Hotspot in the
    office results in dropped ping packets and disconnects - the Wi-Fi hotspot is unusable. Bluetooth gets around the issue, but then I'm limited to just over 1.6Mbps download.

    Outside of the office, the Wi-Fi Hotspot works perfectly and is very fast and stable.

    Although I'm still trying to figure out the source of the interference in the office in regards to sharing a hotspot via Wi-Fi, USB tethering would be a preferable workaround to Bluetooth, and having USB tethering as an option would help get around situations
    when environmental conditions make Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi unreliable.

    I would also like to see the ability to modify the Wi-Fi hotspot Network Band and Network Channel emitted by Windows 10 Mobile so that if you find yourself in a Wi-Fi saturated workplace, you can adjust the hotspot to a less congested channel and/or band.
    Nonetheless, USB tethering would be preferable than having to fiddle with Wi-Fi bands and channels.

    Sincerely,

    Mike Nichols
