I would also like to know the reason why. I left my laptop for a week for a vacation trip. And today i am also encountering the same problem as him. I run tdsskiller, malwarebytes, rogue killer and such. And my laptop is clean. Any suggestions for us?

Are all devices using WiFi for Internet?  If so, if you temporarily use a wired connection for the laptop, do the other devices speed back up?

 

Brand and model of laptop?  Types of other devices?

 

Are you doing anything on the laptop or is it just sitting there on, but not actively being used?

You really should create a new thread for your issue. While it may seem like you have the same problem, there is a chance that it is not the same problem.

Any of the devices running file-sharing apps? At full throttle they can be a drag on bandwidth. Some are also by default set to run at boot unless its changed in the settings. Malware can also change them to run at boot.


How Can I Reduce My Risk to Malware?

I doubt it's malware-related. Sounds like more of a bandwidth issue. The more devices you connect to your network, especially if they are all accessing the Internet, the slower the overall speeds for those devices are going to get.

 

How many other devices are we talking about? What sort of devices? Are any of those devices doing any live-streaming like YouTube or Netflix?

problem occurs when it is turned on but not actively being used, and resolved when turned off or sleep

Did you upgrade to Windows 10? I don't see any Windows 10 drivers mentioned for the Intel N1030 in the Del N5110. Intel forums say not compatible. It's likly wireless compatibility issue between laptop and router is causing slow down. I would suggest going wired or getting a external wireless adapter. Or are you already using one?
