Internet Slow Down After Recent Crash

Jul 3, 2018 8:24PM PDT

My computer recently crashed and my internet speed on it went from about 15 Mbps down to 1.5 down. The odd thing is that my upload speed (2mbps) never changed.

I have the latest Windows updates, and have rebooted the computer many times.

The speed is not that bad on any of my other devices on the wireless network.

It's not a bad idea to CHKDSK /F after crashes.

You never know what state the file system is in and HDD or file system speed can impact your Internet speeds.
