    hello everyone,

    I am really confused to why even with this down load speed I can download with full speed in some places like uplay! but in anywhere else like: IDM, regular download and even on websites such as youtube, I get only about a 100-150kb/s. (even torrent is stuck at 100kb/s).

    please if anyone can it would be greatly appreciated. 6454.png Untitled.png 45645.png

    What speed are you paying for ? Wired or wireless connection ? What Network card is in the computer ?

    I have an Asus g751jy laptop. as for the internet speed! I am using 4G ship in Huawei LTE CPE B310 router. I should also mention that I did not have this problem till I did a full re-installation of Windows 10 which returned every option to its default state.

    I only downloaded sound drivers and Nvidia drivers so far!

    Ok, try updating the Wireless Network drivers from the Asus website.

    Ok. I though you may say that so I was already downloading it but here's the thing! it was about a 181mb file, and while downloading it the speed was not capped at the 100kb/s !!! This screen capture; however, was taking after I installed the driver! But even while I was downloading said driver the speed seemed to be back to normal dsz.png

    So is the speed ok now ?

    What software/browser are you using for downloading ? (just curious)

    I use chrome as my default browser and the screen shots I've been sending are from Internet Download Manager (IDM for short).

    Thanks for the info. Are you sure IDM is not causing problems ?

    (If you think the problem is fixed please click on the Mark Solved button at the top of your page)

    No I don't think IDM has anything to do with the problem. like I said before not even torrents would pass 100kb/s only uplay seemed to benefit from the full download speed. Now even torrents are passing the 100kb/s speed. I want to thank you so much for your interaction it was really motivating and helpful. I'll make sure to mark the problem as fixed.
