Anytime you use a hub to connect devices, each device connected to the hub diminishes the bandwidth from the source (in this case your internet connection coming from your pc). I would suggest you get a switch instead and plug all 8 machines into it along with the incoming internet connection. Everytime something is plugged into a hub, it cuts the original bandwidth or transfer speed in half.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
