Recently bought a new laptop for one of the kids... It's a newer model, windows 10(of course)
Looks like it will be a good computer once I finish getting it set up... that always takes time and I'm prepared for that but it's dragging on with this one.
It's trying to upgrade to the latest version of windows 10. I figure it's best to let it do what it needs to do and, updates are usually a good idea... and of course, these things run those updates pretty much without your effort anyway. The problem is, it's hard to tell what's actually getting done AND, it's hogging the internet bandwidth for the house I guess. I mean, we technically have unlimited internet here but this is the first time I've had something act like this.
It lists a few that are downloaded and not installed and I've restarted and shut down a few times and they're still not installing... but it's also not done with the BIG upgrade. It's stuck showing 10% but that cannot be right with what it's doing to the internet.
Opening task manager it shows it's using 1.5mbps on the network.. and 1.5mbps is our internet speed.
At times I have to just shut it down so I can do things on my own computer here. Web pages loading SLOWLY... a game I play lagging quite insanely(a facebook game at that).
I have plans to bring the laptop into town and find some faster internet to see if I can get things done more quickly but...
I feel like this shouldn't actually be holding up the internet THIS badly... and, I feel like I should be seeing some progress on the upgrade. I mean, to see a 0% on the screen when the internet is being used so heavily just doesn't seem right.
Thoughts? Try in town when I get a chance(not sure when) and wait it out?
Trying not to be impatient with it but have a lot of other things to do to get it setup and waiting on this.
