I'd be interested to know what about Windows 10 causes slow network speeds.. .I ask because every Windows 10 machine I have achieves expected speeds. Are you sure you're not grossly generalising?

I have no issues hitting GB speeds on my XPS 15 under Windows 10 Home.

It doesn't even have an Ethernet port built in, so I had to use a USB adapter to achieve this (which is actually connected to my monitor, which is in turn connected via USB-C to the XPS). I was actually surprised this setup gave me such great speeds.

Interesting, i have a older xps 15 with a usb3 adaptor and it won't do 1Gbps, only about 0.6

Now your post makes me wonder whether it's the dongle or my laptop. Alas I'll just keep wondering




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

I was able to hit these speeds with both a USB-C and USB 2.0 adapter (the former had to be replaced by the latter when I got a new monitor (stupid lack of ports on modern day laptops (and don't even get me started on the lack of Ethernet port in the first place!!))

Yup lack of such a useful port is frustrating. Now the new xps 13 has lack of almost any ports.
