  1. If that doesnt work, I'm considering rolling back the BIOS one version to see if that fixes anything.
  2. I tested other devices on the network and all other devices are getting full speeds over LAN. I will swap cables and see what happens. I have no other NICs available unfortunately. This is a fairly recent fresh install of windows. I ended up having to do a clean install about a month ago. During that time, I updated the bios for my mobo too. I wonder if that has something to do it with it.
  3. So it's definitely an issue related to Windows or my hardware. My upload and downloads are were half of what they should be in safe mode too. I used a variety of different speedtest sites and all showed the same behavior
  4. I've had luck shucking easystores. I got drives that actually had the red label and did not need any mods. I believe the reason theyre so cheap is because they come with a shorter warranty than what you'd get from WD directly and I think it may have something to do with bestbuy, but i'm unsure of the latter
  5. Reinstall didn't work. Now I'm just confused as to whats going on.
  6. Let me try a full reinstall of both NICs. I am on my latest BIOS. I'm still not sure as to what caused this issue.
  7. I disabled and tried different settings for the Interrupt modulation rate on both NICs and it pushed my speeds upwards maybe 5%, but there is still a throttle occurring. Is there anything else I could try?
  8. The mobo has an Intel and Realtek NIC if i'm not mistaken. Which software would I use for the intel one?
  9. So this issue occurs whether my desktop is connected to the ONT directly or my router. I don't know whats causing the issue and at this point I am at a complete loss. I was able to narrow it down to an issue specific to my desktop after I connected my laptop to my router via ethernet and got full speeds. Does anyone have any suggestions that I may be able to try? Troubleshooting steps I tried: Changing the ethernet port used on my desktop My Mobo has 2 ports Making adjustments to the Windows QoS policy Running a couple of netsh and ipconfig commands Dont recall all I ran Changing the DNS within windows Updating my NICs and Windows Network setup: Verizon ONT > Asus RT-AC86u > Desktop via ethernet Windows 10 Edu v1903 build 18352.476
  10. I was able to figure it out. The issue dealt with compression. For some reason changing the compression method allowed full speeds into my own network
  11. I tried both configurations. Chrome shows could not find DNS before immediately switching to cannot connect to page or a similar message. I tried pinging from the command prompt and I get request timed out Also OpenVPN shows kb of data being sent out, but nothing coming in.
  12. I will give this a shot and see what happens.
  13. My default gateway ip is And thats my configuration.
  14. My router, an Asus rt-86u, supports being an OpenVPN server. At first I had it configure to only allow me to access my LAN whenever I connected to it. That worked fine. Now however, I want to be able to route internet traffic through it as well. When the adjustment to allow internet traffic to be routed through my OpenVPN server and connect, my client devices always time out whenever they make a request to any web page. I am under the assumption that I did not configure something that should've been configured in my router. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!
  15. On the bios, I tried the original bios my mobo was on, 2 subsequent BIOS', and it's currently on the latest BIOS. All with the same result. I'm going to try putting everything on their default settings and see how that works out.
