(I hope I nailed the category for this topic!)
Hi everyone! So, I’m facing this really weird issue lately that’s really making me scratch my head to the bones. I have a desktop PC with Windows 10 1607 installed and never did updates on it (I blocked them and forgot to do them, whatever). When doing speedtests with Chrome (it auto updates so it’s the latest at the time of posting) and everything’s in check, my connection works great and I get 930ish Mbit/s down like I should.
If I go to my laptop which has all the updates automagically done by Microsoft speeds are in the 700 Mbit/s. Both machines are wired directly into the modem/router so there’s no possibility it’s a bad wireless connection. Also I used to register the same internet speeds on my laptop but now they dropped. I tried closing everything, making sure it wasn’t updating in the background and so on. Nothing I can do to save it.
On another machine (Q6600, HP motherboard), same wired connection and same updates as my laptop, speeds dropped exactly 200Mbit/s (that machine did 500 at best).
This looks like a pattern to me. I can’t get to the bottom of this issue and nothing appears online. Has anyone experienced the same issues? I’m pretty sure that changing my OS to Linux would solve the issue.
P.S. my PC’s specs are on my profile
