Some of the post is probably irrelevant. I’m now inclined to the slow speeds I’m experiencing on one of two Win 8.1 systems is due to the Broadcom 802.11n wireless card. (I have connected with Ethernet- the first time made no difference but the second troubleshooting session did!)
I updated the driver and there was some improvement in throughput…for about 10 minutes! I’m sitting here with Device Manager open, wondering whether to tweak the default settings.
Glad of advice…..on the Windows forum.
