Hi all,

My PC, when connected to my router using an ethernet cable, downloads games from steam at 27 mb/s. My laptop, using the same cable to the same router, clocks a max of 11.1 mb/s.

Does anyone know why this is, or how I might be able to increase download speeds on the laptop? Many thanks for help.

Laptop specs:


Processor AMD Ryzen 7-3750H Processor 2.3GHz (6M cache, up to 4.0GHz)
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
Storage 512GB PCI-E SSD
Memory 16GB DDR4 2400Mhz
Operating System Windows 10 (64bit)
Lan Ethernet: 10/100/1000,Mbps
Wireless: 802.11 ac Wi-Fi

Hey man, it's an ASUS TUF FX505DV. It doesn't seem to need any driver updates and is brand new. It's actually something I've seen on my girlfriend's laptop as well. Didn't know if perhaps laptops had a setting restricting download speeds or something the like.
