    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    Same. I'd racked my brain for days on days before even posting. I usually try to figure it out myself, but I'm all out of ideas (and time). 70 Mbps is tolerable, it's just much tougher than it would otherwise be if I didn't know definitively that my internet connection is capable of so much...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    As you requested, I created a local account under my administrator account, rebooted, and logged in as that local user. It did not have any affect on the download speed/bandwidth, either via wi-fi or over ethernet. I still don't understand why my Surface Pro download is only half of my much...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    I seem to have found at least part of the problem. Continuing to Google and troubleshoot, I came across a recommendation that was borne of the Creators update. Someone recommended to run PowerShell as an admin and disable the receive segment coalescing (RSC). I used this command...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    Using the 'Add or remove programs' in Windows 10 settings, I actually uninstalled OneDrive completely. To confirm that it wasn't periodically running anyway in the background, I've used the task manager to verify that no OneDrive-related processes or tasks are running (processes, details, and...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    It's funny you mention that, because I've been refreshing Windows update as often as I'm able to get my machine caught up. I don't like how it trickles in the required updates instead of telling me all of the updates I need and downloading them at once. I find that I have to check for updates...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    My biggest slowdown is experienced from my home though. My home wi-fi connection wouldn't be routed through the VPN unless I have it enabled, correct? I guess I should have been clearer earlier - in my first post, the Dell E7440 I mentioned was my previous work laptop. It has the exact same...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    Attached is a screenshot of the Totusoft program that I ran with the Surface Pro 6 using the wi-fi connection of my home network (5GHz, 802.11ac). I don't know if this is as helpful as the one from my work network will be, but maybe it'll at least give you an idea of how my hardware is...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    1. Wi-Fi in our office consists of a Cisco router that provides an intranet connection to all of our offices' servers (my local one, as well as 10 other server drives in our other offices across the US), company email, etc., as well as an access point to the internet like I have at home. Using...

    Slow Wi-Fi Download Speeds, but Upload Speeds OK?

    I've Googled my issue to my wit's end, but haven't positively determined what the problem is or found an overwhelming number of people who report the same problem as I'm having. I recently received a brand new Surface Pro 6 at work - the new i7 processor, 8gb RAM, 256gb SSD, Window 10 Pro...
