ATC-710-ES61 Horrible Internet speed - Win10 issue or Network Driver

 Brand new TC-710.  Windows 10 Pre installed.  Internet connection should be up to 5mb/s and am only getting just under 2/sec.

 

Internet provider came out to check modem (I'm on a wired connection btw).  Their laptop connected at 5mb/s but the PC still only showed 1.8 at it's best testing.  They had no solution and my window to return is up in the next couple days.


Is this a Windows 10 issue that can be easily remedied or are there issues with the netword card/adaptor (what is it called). 

 

I am going to get the owner (my dad in another city) to turn off auto update, uninstall mcafee bloat, and try the speed test on chrome and firefox to ensure it is not Windows Edge for whatever reason.

 

Any other owners with this issue or can anyone suggest a fix or a way to test his modem/network adaptor (sorry, I'm not sure what it's called).

 

Also, regarding the modem/adaptor - what does this PC come with - I want him to ensure it's driver/firmware or whatever is up todate and not the cause.

 

His old computer was a Windows Vista relic but the speed was always near it's max so this thing with all it's power etc is no good for him like this.

Thanks

    i don't think Edge will slow down connection speed, by the way i suggest you to use Chrome or Firefox, since Edge is a little bit buggy.

    Uninstall McAfee and use windows 10 built-in antivirus, is good enough.

     

    i don't understand if the TC-710 is connected using ethernet cable (wired) or wifi.

     

    Can you post the BIOS version of your OC?

    windows logo key + r

    type

    msinfo32

     

    report BIOS DATE/version

    It's connected using Ethernet. I will ask him re the bios and report back.

    let him try this first:

    download the latest Realtek ethernet drivers and let it update the drivers:
