  1. Why is my internet connection so slow in Windows 10?


    Hi. Hope someone can help here. I have two Windows 7 PCs which connect to my 'BT Home Hub': since they sit right next to the hub, I connect them with a LAN cable. I get download speeds of around 75Mbps.

    My Windows 10 laptop (HP Envy 360) though, which connects via the home wi-fi more often than not has real problems with online tasks hanging. At the moment I get less than 1Mbps and can't even access my email.

    I don't know if this is because of Windows 10 and/or my settings (though on occasions things do run OK, so not sure that that could be the reason) or the wi-fi... Before I phone my internet provider, can anyone suggest some suitable troubleshooting steps? The HP laptop has no ethernet port so I can't just plug in a cable (I guess there is a converter available, but I don't have one).

    I will try unplugging one of the PCs and see how it gets on, but I then have to set it up for wi-fi instead... But meanwhile...?

    Thanks!

    :)

  3. Slow Internet Connection in Windows 10

    Hi,

    My name is Angel. I am an Independent Advisor. Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to follow these Methods :

    1. Close the Peer to Peer Update Process on Your PC to Fix Slow Internet after Windows 10 Update

    Shut down the peer to peer update process on your PC. That is to say, you need to close the channel which you can download applications and system updates from other PC’s connected to the server since it limits your internet bandwidth seeding to other users.

    Step 1. Click Start menu and then type Settings to open it.

    Step 2. Select “Update and Security“.

    Step 3. Click the “Advanced Options” tab.

    Step 4. Click the option “Choose How Updates are Delivered".

    Step 5. Turn off the On button.

    2. Adjust the Internet Bandwidth Settings

    Since windows 10, by default, reserves 20% of the internet bandwidth for the system applications and its operating system, you can’t browse or surf on the internet with 100% internet connection. This solution speeds up the dropping internet speed by trimming
    down the bandwidth which is reserved for Windows 10 and system applications. Follow the step-by-step guide to tackle slow internet after Windows 10 Update.

    Step 1. Press Windows shortcut keys Win + R to open Run dialog box.

    Step 2. Type gpedit.msc and then hit OK.

    Step 3. Give permissions. A pop-up window will open with title of Group Policy.

    Step 4. Click on Computer Configuration on the right side of the window.

    Step 5. Navigate to: Administrative Templates -> Network – > Qos Packet Scheduler – > Limit reservable bandwidth.

    Step 6. Click on Enable.

    Step 7. Change the Value from 20 to 0.

    Step 8. Apply and then click OK.

    3. Disable Window Auto-Tuning

    Window Auto-Tuning which is enabled by default improves performance for programs by receiving TCP data over a network. Slower internet speed after Windows 10 Update could hit your computer when Window Auto-Tuning feature is “ON”. While luckily, you can disable
    Windows Auto-Tuning level to improve the internet speed for the Windows 10 update. Use administrator privileges to process the following steps.

    Step 1. Press Win + X and then select Command Prompt (Admin).

    Step 2. Type the command netsh interface tcp show global in the window.

    Step 3. Check for Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level and if it is normal, you will need to disable it.

    Step 4. Type the command netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled to disable it.

    You can perform an internet speed test to see whether those adjustments improve your internet speed or not. If not, you can re-enable the Window Auto-Tuning level by typing the command netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal in the Command Prompt (Admin).

  4. Why is my internet connection so slow in Windows 10?

    Upgrading to Windows 10 from windows 7 and losing internet connection

    A couple of days ago I upgraded my desktop to windows 10 after getting one of those MS prompts. However now I cannot access the internet and suspect the drivers from the Gigabyte GA-MA790X-ud4 motherboard does not support the internet drivers required. Searching the manufacturers website has not given me any joy either. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
