My steam downloads are capped at about 11-12 mbs and used to be above 30 at least. I've tried all the typical fixes you can find in a 30 minute google search run and nothing changes. The strangest part is that my network usage in task manager is roughly 90 mbs for steam. I would upload pictures for proof but it won't let me right now. Is this difference abnormal?

Stem reports in megaBytes/sec.

Your Task Manager network use is in megabits/sec.
Approx 8:1 ratio.

11 megaBytes * 8 = 88 == 90 megabits.
