    Windows 10

    Wi-Fi speed is extremely slow since installing Windows 10!


    I recently formatted my laptop which was running Windows 10 to re-install it since i didn't do a clean install the first time and was hence facing some issues.I've now installed Windows 10 pro x64 version on my Vaio laptop.

    However soon after installing i noticed that the wi-fi speed was extremely slow.Windows update took forever and eventually failed.I don't have the fastest internet connection (2 Mbps) but the speeds i'm getting are less than 10KBps.Windows update progresses 1% in around an hour.Apps from windows store take even longer.

    I tried using a third party software to upgrade my drivers since windows update was taking ages and that software too suffered from the same speed.I thought that some background application might be leeching the speed so i closed windows update (stopped the windows update service),made sure no apps were being downloaded in the windows store and made sure no optional language packs were being downloaded however the result was the same.

    It's not an issue with my Wi-Fi since i'm getting good speed on all other devices including other Windows 10 devices.I've tried several things but i'm now at my wit's end.Here's what i've tried so far :

    1. Re-installed the Broadcom driver for Wi-Fi.
    2. Formatted the PC and re-install Windows.
    3. Disabled location services.
    4. Disabled updates from more than one place under windows update.
    5. Changing several wi-fi properties.

    What do you recommend?

    Hi there

    Not sure what problem is --especially since I'm coming from a country where if you don't get your ISP to give you at least 200 Mib/s (and in Iceland that's regarded as SLOW) I'd change to another provider or take your computer to where there's a decent LAN connection and download from there.

    With the sheer volume of Call centres etc in Bangalore and zillions of outsourcing operations such as Cap Gemini / TATA etc etc based in India I can't believe those connections can be that bad --and if they are --well we then know why those call centres take HOURS to handle customer calls !!.

    Cheers

File Transfer Speed Extremely Low
Hi. I was trying to copy a 2gb file over to another folder, and the transfer speed dropped down to kilobytes or even bytes per second. Sometimes, however, it wildly fluctuates all over the place - from 4KB/s to 50MB/s. How can I fix this? Thanks.
