    Hey guys,

    First time posting so hopefully i can get this solved.

    Decided to upgrade to fibre broadband and all was well, my pc's were getting 70down and 20 up which was a massive improvement over my DSL connection. Recently we noticed it went down to 20 down. So after talking to the ISP and 2 months later an engineer replaced the copper cable outside the house. After running some tests i was still getting 20 down but now ive found the error is also with my pc.

    Currently i have 2 pc's connected to the router (wired) both running windows 10. The pc connected closest to the router is able to get 70 down and is the oldest of the 2 pc's

    My gaming machine is about 8 meters away and is only able to get 20 down. I did used to get 70 as well so somewhere i have changed a setting or something has changed and im just not sure. Ive done the usual of changing the port on the router and buying 2 different length cat5 cables and still the same. So that rules out the cables (unless all 3 were dodgy)

    Ive updated the Ethernet drivers (killer e2200) and that didnt change it. Looking in the connections side of settings and im connected at 1gbps and im set to AUTO for speed / duplex

    Ive also tried resetting the network via windows.

    Never mind guys, managed to fix it!

    What a going on :p for anyone who happens to have the same issue in the future, it was all down to the killer drivers suite. It had also installed a bandwidth controller, so once you remove the suite and reboot...everything is now fine and im back to 70 down on my gaming PC.
