Hey, I purchased a brand new laptop a few months ago. I’ve been setting it up slowly over the past few months - weaning off my old laptop. I noticed while downloading CoD: Modern Warfare that the download was going extremely slowly - but I suffered through it and let the download run for about 24 hours until installation. I figured it was something to do with Battle.net which is not a service I have used in years.
Now, a month or so later - I’m trying to download DOS2 via steam and the download is 12 hours with a download speed of 2MB/s. I downloaded the game within an hour and 15 minutes on my 5 year old laptop.
Doing a speed test…
My old laptop gets 50MB/s download and 50 MB/s upload.
Both of these connections are wireless. Network band is 5Ghz.
Is there a way for me to tell if something that came installed on my laptop is throttling my download speeds? Any other suggestions are appreciated.
