    Internet speed slow on one computer but fine on the rest of computers


    I just updated to Windows 10 but I think the problem was with Windows 8 too, Sometimes my internet is out on my PC while the internet is still up on my brothers PC, tho this problem happens about 3 times a very few days.. We have 5+ computers in the house and 4 are on daily while 3 is being used daily the 4th one is not very used daily and sometimes off most of the time. So the 2 computers have Windows 10 and 3rd computer has Windows 7 while the 4th computer has Windows 10 also. I read on an article which says that Windows 10 uses bandwidth without you know and I checked task manager and on windows 8 my CPU and Memory was just fine and when I upgraded to Windows 10 my CPU spiked to about 20% and Memory spiked to about 72% and sometimes random numbers appear on all 4 sections( CPU, Memory, Disk, Network).

    So how can I fix this problem or is it just Windows 10?

    Have you tried a downoad/upload/latency speed test? Do the test at https://www.speedtest.net a few times and compare
    it to the other PC's.

    You can look at the history tab in task manager to see who is using the network over time.

    Is the problem PC wifi or ethernet? I would look in the event viewer/system messages to see if you can find something
    at the time the problem occurs.

    Network stays at 0% all the the time
    Any other solutions?

    What is the real problem? Internet performance? or wifi sessions being dropped?

    Don't know if this helps but what I did to fix my Network Usage of 0% was right clicking on the Network Utilization Tab under Processes in task manager and selected Process Name and all of a sudden, my Network Tab displayed real time usage.
