    Slow Speed According to the Test


    My internet provider is Xfinity. I'm on a 400mbps plan. My old modem was a SB6141 which is not rated to be able to handle this speed, so I got a new one - the SB6190. I'm using a desktop...the cable from the wall goes into the modem and then feeds a Belkin router, and from that I have a wired connection to the computer but I can connect to the router with a tv and phone wifi. The computer does not have wifi, so it gets a wire. The modem is right next to it. I tested my speed prior to changing and it was showing around 55mbps. Now with the new modem it shows about 90-95mbps. But why is this so much lower than my plan speed? Is there anything i can do to improve it? I tested the speed with no other devices on. Youtube videos still tend to buffer at times. Should I be seeing a higher speed? Or is there a different more accurate test? (OS version 20H2)

    :)

  2. 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

    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)
