"internet speed"


  

          

My usual speed is about 40 mbps download, but recently it slowed to about 10 - 12 mbps. Resetting the Arris modem with built in router helped. After running Malwarebytes, the speed slowed. Is there a setting that would prevent this? Actually, I'm not sure that Malwarebytes is the culprit.

The Malwarebytes slowdown sounds coincidental are you noticing a slow down or are you just seeing it through a speedtest?

Mostly through speed test, but seems slower to me.

Found that there was an update of Win 10 which installed. Shut down the computer and did a reset of my modem, router, and signal booster.

FWIW: Hope this holds; Results:

That speed didn't hold and is down about 20 Mbps. I can live with that.
If I can find a way to move the modem closer to my primary computer setup, I should get considerably higher speed, but need to get the cable to the computer.

So the big question is... What level of service(speed) are you paying for? This can probably be found on you bill, or by calling your ISP.

Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.

Not sure just what I'm paying for, but was advised that I could get faster service with a different modem.
BTW, my reception is via wireless from a remote modem/router in another room. If I connect a computer directly to the modem, I can get much more speed.
