  1. Slow internet speed results in impossible updates


    Hey community & maybe microsoft, i currently have the issue where i cannot update anything through microsoft while i have a slow connection speed, such as windows update & items through the windows store.


    When i try to do so, itll go through a long period where it “attempts” to update, & after awhile as in: half an hour, i get the 0x800706ba error code & it fails to update, let alone have any progress.

    Now, i know it is possible for an update to be done through other mediums steam is doing just fine at said slow speeds which averages at 16kb/s that it can be done, but for whatever reason, any updates related to microsoft refuse to cooperate.
    Frankly, this situation is baffeling, both in part of microsofts update handling cannot handle the low download speeds, & the internet provider that i have being as limiting as it is.


    What i would like to know is this: what is going on in microsofts end that is preventing what i can only assume is a stable connection?


    & why exactly are company practices still so far behind for internet services? I cannot even get mine to provide a paid for extension of my data cap so i can get essential downloads taken care of...

    :)

    Slow Internet speed on only one computer.

    Hi Cody,

    Slow internet speed on one of your computer could be due to the following:

    • Outdated network adapter driver
    • Different Wi-Fi chipset
    • Computer processing speed

    Make sure that the network driver of your computer(s) are always updated.

    We also suggest you to contact your internet service provider for them to check your internet connection speed and give you more information.

    Feel free to post back if you have other concerns.

    Hi Blair,

    There are several factors that affect your internet speed. A few would be connection speed, network traffic, hardware capability, and type of connection. To help us identify what might be causing the slow internet speed on your laptop, allow me to ask the
    following information:

    • How's your laptop connected to the network? Is it directly wired to the modem/router or wirelessly connected?
    • Were your other computers that were getting 100 Mbps download speed connected to the same network?
    • Were there other devices connected to the network while you tried to download?
    • Have you tried connecting your laptop to a different network? Did you get the same internet speed?

    In the meantime, please run a speed test on your laptop. If the internet speed is slower that your internet package, then you may try to update the drivers of your network adapters to ensure that it's up-to-date. Please check out and follow the steps provided
    on this link: Update drivers in Windows 10.

    If you're trying to download while your laptop is wirelessly connected to your network, then kindly check its wireless adapter speed by checking its Wireless Network Connection Status. Follow these steps:

    1. Right-click the wireless icon on your system tray, click Open Network & Internet settings, then click
      Wi-Fi.
    2. On the right pane, click Change adapter options.
    3. Right-click your Wireless Network Connection and click
      Status
      .

    Please take a screenshot of the status page and kindly include it on your reply.

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Regards.

    internet speed slows down

    Hi Barry,

    Having an outdated Ethernet card driver, faulty Ethernet cable, and outdated modem firmware are a few factors that affect the internet speed. If you have a spare Ethernet cable, then I suggest replacing the one you're using to determine if its the cable
    that's causing your internet speed to slow down.

    You may also update the driver of your Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet card. If the issue is triggered by having an outdated driver, then you can have Windows to search automatically for updated driver software to help fix and address the problem. Kindly check
    out Update drivers in Windows 10 and follow the steps provided in updating the drivers.

    If the above steps won't help, then I recommend that you get in touch with the WOW support team to check the modem. Since they're your Internet Service Provider, then they are the appropriate support to look into the modem and perform necessary updates or
    troubleshooting on the device.

    Should you have further queries, feel free to post back.

    Regards.
