    Reduced WiFi speeds after w10 upgrade from w7


    Hello!

    I have a PC with a Belkin Wireless N600 wifi Dongle that I use with a belkin router. I've had this setup for years and have never had trouble until upgrading to Windows 10. Now I'm getting intermittent speeds on my PC only....my chromebook laptop still reports around 20mbps down and around 1.12 up even right next to the PC. The PC gets around 8-10mbps down and near 1.0 up and hangs a bit on webpages.

    I've tried numerous different things to no avail, including switching my routers channel, reinstalling drivers, etc.

    I'm really at a loss....if I can't get it figured out I'm probably going to go back to Windows 7.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    No problem on my side getting all of my 300 Mbps on WiFi:

    I would update to the latest Windows 8 drivers and maybe it'll help.

    Have you tried switching your DNS to Open dns or google dns?
