    Strange issue with internet speed after boots


    Hey guys,

    So, I'm not really sure what's causing this issue. I have a 300mbp/s download and approximately 50mbp/s upload connection, but when I first boot up my machine, I'm getting somewhere around half, or less, of what I usually would. The only way I can rectify this is by changing a setting on the Ethernet driver, then changing it back. The setting I change doesn't, so far as I can tell, make any difference. It's almost as if I have to reset the driver for it to kick in properly. Example:

    All speeds are using Googles speed test, but the results can be replicated with others too.

    Post boot speeds:

    Where I've been making driver changes:

    After making the changes:

    So, in the example above, I ran the initial speed test, then I changed Advanced EEE to Enabled, applied it, and then to disabled and applied it, then ran the second speed test.

    The slowdown is consistent across boots, be it a restart or a full shutdown and power up. It's also carried across a fresh install of Windows.

    Does anyone know what might be causing it? Whilst I'm happy to keep doing what I've been doing to get the full speed, it can get somewhat tedious.

    Just a question for you to look at possible causes.

    Do you have any internet apps running at startup.
    One Drive, Google Drive, Icloud , etc.?
    Any programs that look for updates at startup.
    Sumo, Dumo, etc.?
    Open the Task manager and move to your startup.
    Try disabling any of these (you can re-enable later)
    Restart and see if this helps.

    Thanks for the reply :)

    I haven't, at least not anymore. I did have Onedrive launching at startup, but I turned off everything whilst initially trying to troubleshoot, unfortunately it didn't make any different though
