        So lately I’ve noticed that one computer on my home network seems to max out at 5 Mbps for download speeds. Upload remains the normal 10 Mbps and other computers on the network are normal at 80-100 Mbps.

        By “lately” I mean October, so I’m wondering if something in the most recent update might have done something to the system.

        Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot/fix this?

        Try an internal network speed test to see where the problem is using NetStress.

          Well, it looks like it was actually a router issue. Resolved! Thanks for your response.
