So what's installed besides Windows 10? What antivirus or "HotSpot Shield"?
When I upgrade to 10 I make it a point to uninstall the antivirus and such. Then I test in a very clean Windows 10 setup and update drivers The Old Fashioned Way. That is I get my motherboard and device drivers from the makers. If we skip this step we may have a working but poor performing install.
I have Comcast internet, and connect to my home network on my desktop via a USB WiFi adapter.
I will explain the connectivity issues I have: More often than not, certain internet applications run slow; i.e. browsing web pages, loading images, watching Twitch livestreams.
In addition, connecting to games is often affected. Hearthstone and Diablo 3 connections are often interrupted, and I was unable to get past champion select (couldn't load into the game) in League of Legends last night. Oddly enough, connecting to CS:GO games is never an issue.
However, sometimes I am able to load multiple livestreams, run a game and browse the Web with no connectivity slowdowns at all. What could be causing this disparity?! These issues have been persisting for months.
I don't know if it's Window's 10 incompatibility with my WiFi USB adaptor, if neighboring connections are affecting my internet or if I have a virus? Should I attempt to revert back to Win 8? I have been through multiple WiFi USB sticks and all show the same symptoms.
Thank you for reading and any help you provide.
