I have a Netgear A6100 wireless adapter.  It's worked perfect until I recently got a new (to me) Dell computer. While the adapter is recognized and technically online it's no where near full speed that it should be getting.  It's throttled at only  0.03  Mbps.       Both the old computer (and new) are Windows 10.     Also, if I'm using my Ipad in the same room with computer turned on, it too is throttled down to the  0.03 Mbps...  If the computer is turned off, the Ipad works at full internet speed.


I've tried downloading the latest firmware (software?) of the adapter and it says that I have the most current.  Also, I looked at drivers and it says the most recent is already on computer.


Is there any setting that should be on or off?  Any ideas what might be going on?

Is the New Dell Windows 10 in the process of updating? Could be saturating the speeds. Click on the setting Cog wheel under windows icon(start button) and go to updates. It would show there that updates are currently happening if it is.
