My laptop is a windows 10 and the is consistently 8 - 20 mbps and this has been going on for a very long time. All other devices on the network get 100mbps on wired/wireless yet my laptop is failing to report similar speeds and gets 200 ping in games as well. (A month ago I got 10-20 ping)

(Lenovo y50 first gen I think hardware manual)

I've tried to change the speed/duplex settings to 1gbps, run cc cleaner, as well as malwarebytes and the problem still persists. Task manager doesn't show any network usage. 

If the question arises on my drivers: I've installed the Lenovo utility for driver update and it said it was all fine. I also have updated all device manager drivers, and found and updated hidden ones as well. Windows said there were no further updates. 

Not connected to vpn, proxy, etc. 

The network cable is not at fault either, its a CAT6 and works on other laptops perfectly. 

What can I do to fix this?


Edit: Windows version 1709, Build: 16299.431

Moved from Win 10 to 'Networking'.
