Question Issues with capped Wifi connection speed - AX3000 NIC - 10mb - Starlink ?

May 14, 2022
Hi folks,

I'm having a strange issue with my new Starlink kit on one of my home office PC's. One of the PC's seems to have a cap wifi speed of 10mbs, whereas the other can hit 200mbs.
Both PC's have the same hardware ( Apart from different graphics cards), and they are located 6 feet apart in the same room.
The router itself is in another room.

All other devices checked can hit greater than 10mbs, it's just this one PC that seems to be "capped" at this speed.
Any idea as to why this is the case?

Are there any settings either in BIOS /OS that are causing this issue perhaps?
