PC throttles internet speed?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there,

 

we recently got our internet speed upgraded from 200 to 400 Mbps though my pc has problems reaching the full potential and seems to be limited to 190 Mbps (according to speedtest.net) or 220 Mbps (according to fast.com). Another pc, that I connected with the same ethernet cable, has no such issues and easily reaches the 400 mbps. The upload, however, is unaffected by this; both computers manage to reach the 50 mbps.

I just don't know why.

The "pc in trouble" uses the rather old i5 4570 with a Gigabyte B85M-D3H motherboard. No VPN active. Already tried updating the network drivers but that didn't change anything. There is also no Windows update.

Does anyone have any idea what to do. Starts to be extremely frustrating since everything works fine on the other computer.

Best!

Do you have the Gigabyte Lan Optimizer - crapshit installed? That'd probably be the cause.

No, I don't. Though, I used to have hamachi installed but I removed that a couple of hours ago and that did not change anything. :/

Check for lan drivers and update the bios on the motherboard, you can find all necessary downloads and updates from the support page on gigabytes website for your motherboard.

"Unfortunately", all drivers are up to date, so that's not it either.

Is there any possible way to determine whether this is a hardware or software issue? Would like to get things back up to speed somehow but I can't even figure out what's causing this to happen.

Through what mechanism are you running the speed test? how is CPU utilization during the test?
