  1. That looks pretty good, except for the Realtek NIC, which is not surprising, given that 99% of the motherboards utilize Realtek NICs, since that is the cheapest option. I'm pretty confident that you could leave things be on the computer, since you cannot replace the NIC (you could buy a Gigabit PCIe NIC, however those are prohibitively expensive for no reason, unless it is Realtek, in which case you get pretty much the same quality whether it is a ~5$ PCIe NIC or a ~90$ PCIe NIC, and it will be the same as the onboard NIC). One more word about Realtek networking driver flaws: Unlike other manufacturers' NICs, Realtek's NICs do not utilize hardware processing, only software processing, which is why the network speed will be heavily dependent on the system's overall performance (which is why Realtek performs alright on high end devices (while taking away a bit of the system's performance), but much worse on low-end devices (and for laptops, cause a small, but additional battery drain).
  2. Thanks. In that case, I really need to read up more, since so far I have benefited from jumbo frames (admittedly, only up to ~4.5KB), however I only use it locally, and I don't utilize Windows for this either, however it could be placebo.
  3. That certainly makes sense, and also explains how I saw the opposite in my usage. It depends on what kind of usage it is.
  4. I will need to read upon the matter before I can say yay or nay to your comment, however from my experience, I have yet to see fragmentation as a result of jumbo frames, rather than because lack of jumbo frames.
  5. From personal experience, that is not true. Windows wont recognize the partition, however it will certainly recognize the physical device, and as such should appear inside Disk Management (with an "unknown" or "unformatted" partition or partitions).
  6. Yeah, that's a valid point. Realtek's networking products are pretty bad due to incompetent drivers (this I have heard from people working on the Linux Realtek drivers, I was a beta tester for a short period of the drivers for the RTL8211AE (WiFi-AC)). Other than that, while jumbo frames do make more efficient usage of the network, and as such improve networking speed, it won't help speed up the Internet speed, since to my knowledge, no ISP makes use of jumbo frames for non-corporate clients, and even then, only a small percentage actually use it, such as universities, some mega-corporations, and some governmental uses. There should be no need to touch buffers either way.
  7. That may be the case, but lets first make sure. To bring an example, I know that our distance from the CO limits our maximum speed (had we payed for 100Mbt/s) to ~60-65Mbt/s, however we've had issues in the past year, that were not shared by our neighbors, sometimes limiting our speed to ~800Kbt/s (that's ~100KB/s), which after checking things (literally checking every single point on the line, except for the networking box itself), I think is due to something going haywire in our networking box (I was supposed to call someone today, but was unable to do so on time, so hopefully tomorrow).
  8. In the Store's settings you have an option to enable auto-updates, an option that is enabled by default. And I find it hard to believe that you only have 2 store apps installed, that only possible on the LTSC edition, since it doesn't come with any store apps at all (you install the store along with the most basic dependencies, unofficially).
  9. Ah. Well both are flagships, just one is a newer generation than the other.
  10. Hmm... Perhaps Windows Update in the background? Or perhaps the Microsoft Store is updating apps in the background?
  11. Did you check with another PC? Perhaps something else was limiting it?
  12. Flashchip? There is standard PCIe, which the AX200 is, and CNVi.
  13. What flash drives are these? Since what you had described is next to impossible to do without tools that play with the hardware itself (and/or the firmware), or with a corrupt installation file (either the download was corrupted, or you have an issue with your hardware which is causing more than just this issue, whether it be dying RAM, dying HDD, dying SSD, dying PSU, or a problematic motherboard or CPU). If this are generic flash drives, there is a real possibility that they are fake, and have less storage than they show you (e.g. an 8GB with only a 1GB NAND).
  14. Why was Hackintoshing forbidden here? It is perfectly legal nowadays (due to a legal loophole). What is illegal is using what is called a Hackintosh distro, since it is illegal to distribute the MacOS OS installation media (due to it being illegal to distribute MacOS).
  15. That leaves only two choices: Either the Intel AX200, or the Intel 9260 (CNVi is probably not supported).
