    Its a wired connection (1,5 mtr CAT6a)(CAT7). My network tell me that the connection only link 10 mbps (port 1 from router), but at speedtest its about 20 mbps. (still way too low) My laptop has a integrated LAN 10/100/1000, so I dont understand whats wrong with the connection  ....

    What is the brand and model number of your router? It might be on that side that's connecting wrong.

    ICOTERA i4850-00 router. I connected my old PC, and tested the speed: download 168 mbps - upload 211 mbps, so it seems to be OK

    OK, that router pretty much should support up to gigabit on that port. Let's check to make sure Windows doesn't have the port throttled:
    Here is how it can be done.
    1. Open the Settings app in Windows 10.
    2. Go to Network & Internet -> Ethernet if you are using a wired connection.
    3. Click the link Change adapter properties: ...
    4. Double click the adapter whose speed you need to know.
    Capture a screenshot and lets see what it displays.

    The speed is 1GB, and all my drivers are updatet via DRIVERFINDER

    What you show looks like a crop from Device Manager, not from the Ethernet properties...

    Sorry ...

    Well that's showing a 1Gbps connection, as expected. So it's not a hardware or port configuration issue. Are you running your speed tests through the VPN connection or directly? Which speed test are you using?

    Tested via downloaded OOKLA speedtest. Without VPN installed, the speed is something like 56/56 mbps

    Can you boot into safe mode with networking and try the test again? There is likely something pulling your system down running in the background. That test will determine if it's a Windows process or some other app/driver.

    Deleted the OOKLA spedd app, and downloaded it again. My PC doesent like that app - went in slowmotion, so i deleted it again. Booted into safe mode, and used some lokal speedtest on the internet: download 51,2 mbps upload 231,2 mbps - OOKLA on the net: down 14,61 Up 145,16

    Those numbers are just backwards from what I typically see. Usually uploads run about 10% (or in my neck of the woods 5%) of downloads. This is because almost everyone pulls things like web pages down to view them, but seldom are they putting stuff up on the web, unless backing up to the cloud. Anyway, it looks like your speeds are actually pretty good. :) Now to see if they change much when booted into the normal Windows instead of safe mode.
