Internet speed is being capped at 10 mbps

Q: Internet speed is being capped at 10 mbps

I recently upgraded my internet from 25 mbps to 100, while I thought getting 9.5 was always normal for that speed, after the upgrade it is still sitting at the same speed. My other devices in the house are getting at least 70 mb/s via wifi while I have a hardwired connection. I've done everything I can think of, downloading newest drivers, calling my ISP, trying different modems cords connection types or devices. Nothing has made any change, there is no change in speed between wifi and hardwired eiher, they both cap at 9.52 mb/s. I'm currently updating to windows 10, and am on a different device, but in a few hours I will post again with system specs and the requested log.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Do you have a DOCSIS 3 modem? The older models are DOCSIS 2.

Have you replaced your router?

It would help if you posted both the brand and exact model of modem and router.

Hello,

I plugged in an N-adapter to a USB hub and it gave me a 6 Mbps in www.speedtest.net. I thought this was kind of slow for what the adapter "claimed" (300Mbps). But then I plugged it directly into a computer port and it showed 24 Mbps (my internet plan is 25 Mbps), which I suppose it's pretty close or even "maxed" because it's not really 25 Mbps all the time, right?

Is this normal? Is my USB hub crappy/old? Would it make a difference if I get a new USB hub?

Thanks.

I currently have a 15 Mbps down / 1.5 Mbps up cable Internet connection. However when I go to www.speedtest.net or www.speakeasy.net to test the speed of the connection its only showing like 5 Mbps down / 400 Kbps up speed. But when I download a file it downloads at about 1,400 KBps (note that I said KILOBYTES per second not bits (as in 1,400 KBps = 11.2 Mbps)).

Anyway why do the down / upload speeds on the test sites suck but real file downloads are fast?

Hi all, I've had my Precision 5510 for around 4 months now, but I've experienced massive slowdown when I've been using my media software (Adobe Suite).
I some recent updates, Adobe updates, and the Windows fall update.  Nothing seems to have fixed the issue.
I noticed while I working away  that in task manager the CPU utilisation seemed to be capped at 30%, never going above 0.78Ghz.  
So I downloaded 4 different CPU stress tests and they all came showed poor CPU performance.  While they were running I was expecting Task Manager to show 100% utilisation on all 8 logical cores, but it only still uses 30% at 0.78Ghz.
Any ideas why this is happening?
Kind regards

Hi all,

I wasn't sure whether to put this in this forum or the networking one.

Anyway my problem is with my Windows 7 computer which seems to have some kind of cap on it's download and upload speed. I have a program called Netlimiter installed which I use sometimes to limit my internet connection on my computer and some programs - however none of the limits are 'enabled' so I'm not sure why my download seems to be limited to under 3Mbit/s max.

I have a 'up to 38Mb' connection where I actually get about 25 MB download and 10MB download but I have ran a speed test on my mobile which maxes out my download. I run a VPN when my computer boots into windows to connect to my workplace - however I disconnect from this to run the speed test so I don't think it's anything to do with that.

I have ran the speed test with Firefox and Chromium as well so it's not a browser issue.

I am a bit confused about why my speed is capped on my computer. Maybe somehow the Net-limiter program is running or capping my speed?

All help is much appreciate

Hello everyone, I recently bought a thinkpad x1 carbon 6th gen. I'm experiencing severe CPU throttling.My model number is 20KH002KUS My main probelm is that during benchmarks, my CPU clock speed stays at 1.5ghz while on battery. On AC power, the CPU speed is capped at around 2.4ghz, still not what this machine is capable of. I am getting terrible benchmark scores. I have tried all sorts of "fixes," nothing worked. My BIOS version is 1.31, the latest update.  What can I do? I may have a deffective unit, if so I will return to Lenovo. However I believe there is a way to solve this, with some settings in the BIOS maybe, or maybe there is a problem with this BIOS version. Please help, thank you.

My Dell Latitude E7440 laptop came with Windows 8.1 at the time I bought it. I did not notice this problem until I upgraded to Windows 10.
Sometimes when I put the laptop to sleep and resuming at a later time, the CPU speed is limited to around 0.78 GHz and switching to High Performance mode won't help. The computer becomes very slow and the only way to fix it is rebooting.
I have the latest BIOS installed (A15) and other drivers are also updated.
I have seen other threads saying that the problem is caused from using Dell Power Companion but I am not using it. I have 2 power adapters that I use with this laptop, one of them is a Dell 90W adapter. I am not sure about the other one as I do not have it right now, but that one originally came with the laptop.
Any temporary/permanent fix for this? Thank you.

I've solved this problem. Downgrade BIOS to A01 and update step by step every single newer version - A01>A02>A03 ... >A15. Now, I'm on BIOS A15 and there is no problem with CPU after suspend. i7-4600u, W8.1 x64.

But when I try to upload files in Google Drive, Mediafire and other similar websites, my upload speed gets capped to 600 kBps. There are some sites where it reaches 900 kBps, but that's it. Though, my other mates here are getting the full upload speed, 10 mBps in Google Drive and other similar sites. So, it is clear that the problem is only mine.

So I have a wireless network setup in our 4 bedroom apartment and I am connecting wirelessly on my desktop with a usb drive(hub is in another room). Half of the time I will have an excellent connection at 54Mbps, and then for whatever reason, will just plummet to 1Mbps but still says excellent signal strength. Right now its working perfectly fine, however an hour or so from now, will probably crash randomly. I have a feeling its my firewall because its disabled right now, but im not sure. Any other ideas?
 

A:Signal Strength = Excellent, Speed = 1 Mbps

Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter.

Could be the adapter or router beginning to fail. How to recover after the bandwidth plummets?

In an apartment building there are lots of opportunities for wireless interference, such as from 2.4Ghz cordless phones and other networks on the same or close channel.

Firewalls either block or not; I have never heard of them affecting speed as in your symptoms.

I've been having issues with my Ethernet speed on my 9360 while connected to TB16. I can't get anything above 100 Mbps even though my Ethernet speed is 250 Mbps. My other laptop with built-in network card has no problems with reaching the full 250 Mbps.
I've checked TB16 specs and it tells there's a gigabit Ethernet controller onboard, so it shouldn't be an issue.
I have latest drivers from Dell's website and also tried the latest Realtek drivers - no speed change.
I've played with the driver settings and disabled all speed optimizations and enforced 1 Gbps full duplex as a default setting, but still no effect.
I've seen a couple of other forum members reporting the same issue, but all of them were running Linux, while I'm running Windows 10 64-bit. Apparently, the fault is with the dock.
Can anyone confirm the limitation and can suggest any workaround? 

A:TB16 Ethernet speed limited at 100 Mbps

You definitely don't want to force 1 Gbps Full in Device Manager.  Forcing linespeed and duplex settings especially on gigabit connections can lead to worse performance even when those hardcoded settings are correct. The standard for gigabit is auto-negotiate.  There's a Realtek network FIRMWARE update for the TB16 and WD15 docks around here somewhere, but I don't know if that would help this issue.  But my main question is: What do you mean your Ethernet is 250 Mbps?  There's 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps.  There's no standard for 250 Mbps Ethernet.Have you tried a different cable?  Do you have any other systems that are negotiating at 1 Gbps with the cable and switch/router port you're currently using with the TB16?

Hi Guys, Need some troubleshooting help with my connection. My speed has decreased drastically beginning in early January, dropping from 27-31mbps to 1.6 mbps
Here is what I have done so far
I have power cycled my router, and I have swapped out ethernet cables to both my router and to my PC.
I have bypassed my router and, direct connected thru my modem . Oddly enough, this was even slower
I am running teamviewer so I can simultaneously check speed on my other win 7 PC (3 feet away) where my download speed is 30.1mbps

I have wirelss devises in the house that have good connection so process of elimination points to my PC. It would be nice if it just stopped working all together. It is the slow speed that confuses me.

Buy an ethernet card and be done with it or have I missed something?

Thanks in advance for your assist

A:Solved: Help with troubleshooting speed. download is 1.6 mbps!!

And you are connected to your router via Ethernet?

What is the specs of the computer in question?
And since you mentioned that it worked fine prior to January, do you recall making any configuration to the operating system (e.g downloading new softwares...) or made any hardware changes with your current network?

My guess would be something to do with the Operating System that is consuming bandwidth resources making the said computer slow.

Is there some Windows 10 setting that might be causing this?
Please help me out here.

A:USB 3.0 port transfer speed on HP Laptop not exceeding 40 MBPS

Internal and external speeds are fully different. Your internal hard drive runs off the South bridge Chipset, which all new SATA controllers are SATA III 6G. The USB 3.0 runs off a completely different controller or Chipset, such as AsMedia or VIA Chipset. That 40 MBS is actually a good transfer rate speed for an external 3.0 port.

My Motherboard has USB 3.0 boost, and there was only one USB 3.0 flash drive in it, and the transfer rates were between 20mb to 35 mb a sec, which I think is normal for a flash drive. All other flash drives are USB 2.0 that I use in the ports

Hi ya'll. I have a Hp dc5000 Tower pc. The problem is recently, whenever I connect to the internet using my 3G Modem, the computer becomes very unresponsive, any browser, software or window that was open displays "....(Not Responding)" at the top. I decided to be turning of Kaspersky antivirus since its said to slow down performance while updating the virus database but there's very little if any difference. What might be the problem?

I tested the internal HDD with CrystalDiskMark and was able to get 109 MBPS both on sequential read and write tests. Then, when I tested my 1 TB WD My Passport USB 3.0 External HDD with CrystalDiskMark the sequential read and write speed did not exceed 40 MBPS the few times I tried. Got similar 30-40 MBPS speed when transferring movies from external HDD to internal HDD.
So far, I have tried updating the external HDD and USB 3.0 Controller drivers. Tried with 'USB selective suspend setting' disabled (Under Power Plan Options). Also tried with write caching enabled. But havent been able to solve the issue.
My laptop is running Win 10 Home 64-Bit. I am sure I used the USB 3.0 port. And, I used the USB 3.0 cable supplied with the external HDD. I don't have another USB 3.0 device so cannot figure out whether the issue is with my laptop of the external HDD.'

Is there some Windows 10 setting that might be causing this?
Please help me out here.

A:USB 3.0 port transfer speed on HP Laptop not exceeding 40 MBPS

Internal and external speeds are fully different. Your internal hard drive runs off the South bridge Chipset, which all new SATA controllers are SATA III 6G. The USB 3.0 runs off a completely different controller or Chipset, such as AsMedia or VIA Chipset. That 40 MBS is actually a good transfer rate speed for an external 3.0 port.

My Motherboard has USB 3.0 boost, and there was only one USB 3.0 flash drive in it, and the transfer rates were between 20mb to 35 mb a sec, which I think is normal for a flash drive. All other flash drives are USB 2.0 that I use in the ports

Hi all,
I'm planning to get myself a 3G datacard. I'm not being able to decide whether to spend money for a 21Mbps one or go for a 14.4. Thing is in my city 3G speeds never reach beyond 3-6Mbps. So would the 21Mbps thing help? As in, in the same network, will the 21Mbps perform better than the 14.4 Mbps one or will they be similar in performance?
I'm thinking, if these have different compression and/or modulation technologies, the 21 Mbps card might have an advantage, like a 56k modem has better speeds than a 33.6k modem on a same not-so-good analog telephone line, mainly due to the different compression technology involved. I couldn't find proper information about this in the internet, so posted this question.

Thanks,

Hi,

I need a help to resolve one issue with my Belkin router F7D4402 v1. I have got it recently and configured it without any issue and my internet (ADSL) was up and running. However, later I have noticed that, my internet speed is limited to 1.5 Mbps. whereas; the speed I was getting on my old Linksys WAG200 router was minimum 2.0 Mbps.

I have tried to disable the QoS and other options but no use. But when I enabled the Mac cloning it worked fine. I was getting the speed I subscribed for, but unfortunately, the other devices on my Wi-Fi stopped working. With Mac clone enable, the internet is only available to my PC.

I need the internet on my PC plus all the Wi-Fi devices in my house and along with it my full internet speed, not just 1.5 Mbps.

Can anyone please help to fix the issue?

Thank a lot.

Hi,

I've been experiencing some problems with my RangeMax wireless NETGEAR router (model WPN824) in terms of wireless connectivity.

When directly plugged into my router (i.e. using ethernet cables), the download and upload speed (in mbps - megabytes per second) appear to be working correctly, where we register average download speeds of 15-19 mbps, and 1.99 to 2.07 mbps for upload speeds, as shown on speedtest.net. However, our wireless devices (i.e. laptops and Nintendo Wii) are not picking up the same download speeds, but the upload speed is fine. The problem is that the download speeds of the wireless devices are comparatively low, where speeds of 2.5 to 5.5 mbps are a commonality.

We've tried resetting the router (pushing that small button at the back of the router, using a pin) and have a new 10-character key password. We've also tried simply unlugging the power cable to the router, with disconnecting lengths of about 10 seconds to over a minute for separate attempts. It is also worth noting that the router occasionally disconnects and re-connects on irregular intervals, and we have many wireless devices attached to the router (though many of these are not in use and are very often disconnected from the internet, so I do not think the router is being overwhelmed).

I am currently paying for 30 mbps downloading speed and 2 mbps with respect to uploading, though the 30 mbps downloading speed will likely only be registered if directly connected to the bl... Read more

Hey everyone.

Thanks for looking, need a little help here.

I can't figure out what is going on with my desktop. It's usually connected via a USB wireless dongle and used to take full advantage of my 50 mbps connection. Now, It varies all over the place from 2 mpbs up to 50. I first thought it was the dongle so I replaced that with a PCI-e adapter that can handle 450 mbps. However, that has not seemed to fixed the issue.

I thought it was the router. Reset that. Thought it was the modem. Reset that. However, my 5 year old laptop runs at 50 mbps all day long. I've used multiple websites to test the connection and I ensured to same sites for both the laptop and desktop. So the only thing that's left is software on my computer right? Driver issue? I just installed fresh drivers for this adapter and still no go.

Although I've enjoyed building and being a PC junkie for the last 25 years, networking it just not my specialty. Any thoughts or suggestions?
 

A:Wireless speeds vary form 2 mbps to 50 mbps, don't think it's hardware.

How is it possible that computer to computer transfers are exactly 10mbit/sec but my internet connection is working fine at 40mbits with the same computers and network adapters? One computer is asking me to activate because I put the CPU back at stock from an overclock. That couldn't be it, right?

I have two Windows 7 computers and a linux NAS server, all gigabit, and each device on the network is connected with only one network adapter. The system was working flawlessly with gigabit speeds for a year, and all I did was replace two motherboards.

By disabling/reenabling the network adapater in windows or restarting the router, I can sometimes get the LAN speed to behave like real gigabit and do sustained 800-900 mbit transfers, but it soon gets eratic and sometimes pauses for a few seconds.

I can eclipse 10mbit/sec with my internet connection with both computers 100% of the time, but for some reason computer->computer and nas->computer transfers are capped at 10mbit/sec most of the time.

edit: I may have fixed it by resetting everything on the network. I was pretty sure I already did that, though. Very strange.

A:capped at exactly 10mbit for LAN but internet is fine at 40mbit?

try swapping round a few NICS (if you have them installed on your board or.. wires which sometimes can be the problem (but very rare to be the cause but worhth checking) maybe the motherboard coould be the problems if you didnt have any problems before they were replaced... are you sure the new boards have gigabit ethernet... sounds like they dont if your network is now being capped at 10mb... if they would be 1 gigabit etheret on the board then i cant see that being the problem.... maybe post a pic from device manager of network adapters, controllers etc
