    How to See Network Adapter Speed in Windows 10


    A network adapter is the component of a PC's internal hardware that is used for communicating over a network with another computer and Internet.

    Sometimes you may need to check to see what the current maximum speed is for your network adapters to see if they are performing at specs. This can be helpful with troubleshooting network performance issues.

    This tutorial will show you how to check the current maximum speed of your network adapters in Windows 10.


    CONTENTS:
    • Option One: To Check Network Adapter Speed in Network and Sharing Center
    • Option Two: To Check Wireless Network Adapter Speed using Netsh command
    • Option Three: To Check Network Adapters Speed using WMIC command
    • Option Four: To Check Network Adapters Speed using PowerShell script
    • Option Five: To Check Network Adapters Speed in Settings




    OPTION ONE [/i] To Check Network Adapter Speed in Network and Sharing Center
    1. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click/tap on the Network and Sharing Center icon to open the Network and Sharing Center.

    2. Click/tap on a Connections link for the network adapter speed you want to see. (see screenshot below)

    Windows 10 : Entire LAN slowed when enabling wireless devices on one desktop machine

    I have a Uverse DSL gateway connection from my house to the internet. Multiple devices are connected on my LAN to the gateway both through ethernet and wifi connections. The IP addresses for the network are all allocated from the Uverse gateway. I use
    ookla speed test to test connection speed.

    I have a Windows 10 desktop machine which has both ethernet and wifi adapters built in. If I boot up this machine with the ethernet adapter enabled and the wifi adapter disabled via the device manager, the network connection speed is the max expected, download
    20 Mbps. I confirm this both from the Windows 10 desktop and other devices connected to the network. As soon as I enable the wireless adapter on the problematic Windows 10 desktop machine, the entire network speed slows to 3-5 Mbps. By that I mean both
    the problem desktop and any other device on the network now produce download speed test results of 3-5 Mbps.

    To resolve the problem, I must either disable all network adapters on this problematic Windows 10 desktop (disable both the ethernet and wifi adapters in device manager) and re-enable only the ethernet adapter, or reboot with only the ethernet adapter enabled.
    Only disabling the wifi adapter on this desktop does not resolve the problem, meaning even with only the ethernet connection enabled on this windows 10 desktop, the entire network performance is still degraded to 3-5 Mbps. The desktop and all devices on
    the network produce speed test results of 3-5 Mbps download speed. I have an external USB wifi network adapter than exhibits the same behavior when enabled on this desktop machine, so it does not appear be one specific wifi adapter.

    It seems like some network component or service is getting enabled when I start a wireless device on this desktop, that degrades network performance for all devices thereafter, until I disable all network devices on the desktop. I'm really at a loss how
    to debug this beyond this point. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

  3. Problem connecting to the internet related to the adapter

    Could try using the Google Public DNS settings in Windows to see if the the problem persists?

    https://www.groovypost.com/howto/add-google-pub...

    If not, press Windows key + X

    Click Device Manager

    Expand Network adapters

    Right click your adapter

    Click Uninstall

    Exit Device Manager, restart. Windows 10 should detect the network adapter then reinstall it.
