I am using Windows 10 Creators edition. When connecting to my Virgin Media home network via a Broadcom NteLink Gigabit ethernet adapter the connection is being throttled back to about 9.6mbps. If I uninstall the adapter and then let Windows reinstall it I am then able to receive around 87mbps (on a Sunday afternoon). The network is capable of delivering 200mbps but I consider 87 to be adequate at that time of day.

If I shut down and restart the computer, the speed drops to 9.6 again. There is something in the computer's software that is causing this. If I plug the same cable into my laptop the connection is fine.

The computer is a Dell Vostro 430.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this please?

Have you tried updating the Ethernet driver?  Look in the Device Manager to see if you can update the driver.

yes I have tried that. I also found one on the Broadcom website but it wasn't suitable.
