    Need for Speed


    System
    System Spec:
    Motherboard: Asus P8H61-M PRO
    Ram: 16GB
    OS: Window 10 Home
    Version: 10.0.19045 Build 19045

    Network Adapters
    Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network)
    Realtek 8821AE Wireless LAN802.11ac PCI-
    Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller #2
    WAN Miniport (IKEv2)
    WAN Miniport (IP)
    WAN Miniport (IPv6)

    As some of you may remember me I did an upgrade om my CPU, and touch wood all is running great.

    My new issue is simple I have recently upgraded my broadband to 150mb, but I am only getting 100mb, callout engineer, connected up their laptop and achieved 151mb?

    I believe my network card will achieve 150mb, but I am unsure how to tweak it, lots of conflicting info on the net, but I know I can trust the info and guidance from here.

    Or maybe just upgrade the onboard to a card... Thoughts

    Are you connecting your computer with a wired or wireless connection?
    Did the engineer connect with a wired or wireless connection?
    It makes a difference. When I had 200Mbps Internet my wireless connection speed was about 80% of my wired connection speed.

    Thanks MisterEd, for your reply... The answer to your question is as follows.

    It's a bit of both, I have an ethernet cable connected to my PC, which connected to an Eero which is connected to the main Eero. Engineer connected to same ethernet cable.

    Hope that helps

    Check your wired Ethernet settings:

    Open Settings
    Select Network & Internet
    Select Ethernet
    Right-click on Ethernet and select Properties

    Select Configure

    Need for Speed-network2.jpg

    Select Advanced tab
    Select Speed & Duplex

    Need for Speed-network3.jpg

    The default is Auto Negotiation
    Try changing that to 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex

    In the OPs first post was
    Realtek 8821AE Wireless LAN802.11ac PCI-
    Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller #2
    Both the wired and wireless are capable of more that 100Mbps. However, the wireless may come up a little short of 150Mbps.

    Thanks, again MisterEd for your support and suggestion... Changed Speed & Duplex from the default setting "Auto Negotiation" to
    1.0 Gbps Full Duplex, no change?

    Try downloading and reinstalling the LAN driver for the motherboard. If your WiFi speed is lower than expected then you might want to reinstall its driver also.

    If you are trying to use WiFi are you using the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band? For my computers I prefer 5GHz because it gives faster speeds than 2.4GHz. The only downside is that 2.4GHz in theory has more range but that is not a problem for me.

    One of my laptops WiFi speed dropped from the usual 300-400 Mbps to 50-100 Mbps. I tried everything but could but could fix it. I ended up reinstalling Windows 10. The WiFi speed then returned to normal. BTW, then I realized the audio on that laptop was garbled. That forced me to reinstall Windows 10 again. I now have a new laptop so don't use the old laptop much anymore.

    Updated the Lan driver to the following

    Lan Speed 106
    Driver Provider: Realtek
    Driver Date: 16/03/2023|
    Driver Version: 10.64.316.2023

    WIFI 86.5
    Driver Provider: Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
    Driver Date: 15/03/2021
    Driver Version: 2024.0.4.209

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ok a quick update, and a bit of a strange one.

    I spoke to a TalkTalk engineer, and he suggested instead of looking for a newer driver, do a driver roll back, so I thought how far back is back, so I removed all drivers and rebooted the system.

    Now here is the strange part windows has now loaded a 2015 driver, and low and behold Lan is now giving me 151mbs and wireless 120mbs.

    Happy days...

    In this video, i will show you how to edit the Windows 10 and Windows 11 Registry to change a setting known as IRPStackSize. Increasing that parameter’s value should increase the overall network performance of your Windows 10 and Windows 11 personal computer.
