[FIXED] Windows 10 Internet Speed 1/3 as fast as Linux Mint

So I dual-boot Windows 10 and Linux Mint, and recently I noticed that the internet speed on windows is significantly slower for no discernible reason. I've already done the standard first-page-of-google troubleshooting and common fixes, with no improvement.

Ignore the system clock difference, these were taken minutes apart on the same system. My system clock is messed up too but that's a different matter.

 

I'm not expecting anyone to go full blown IT staff, I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if anyone's been able to fix it.

 

Thanks!

@CommandMan7 linux is much more lighter than windows, and it could be that

I know that some delta is expected, but due to it being so close to 125 mbps, which could plausibly be a network speed setting since it's close to 1/8 a gigabit.

I'm using a Asus Prime X570-P, which has Realtek RTL8111H NIC. Just made sure I'm on latest 10.38.1118.2019 Driver. Ran the test again and it did hit 145, which shoots down my 125 mbps hard limit theory.

GOOD NEWS!

 

I found a utility called TCP Optimizer which fixed my issue. I ran a scan on it and it doesn't seem to be malicious. Has a long history it seems, so I trust it.
