(Solved) Windows 10 Download Speeds VERY SLOW RRS feed

  • Question

  • Solved: I tried changing every setting with netsh no avail, tcp heuristics, auto-tuning etc.; After disabling hidden protocols on my adapters, my speed jumped from 2 megabytes to 25 megabytes on a single thread download, 40 on multithread. Before disabling these protocols I could get 30+ but only by multi-threading downloads and, oddly, speedtest.net. Inbuilt  Windows 10 1809  throttling disabled, now I can grab a single file & update the way my personal computer is designed for here is how:

    Download microsofts nvspbind.exe, to disable hidden protocols:
    in a poweshell window I run:

    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_server
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_rdma_ndk
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_implat
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_netbios
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_lldp
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_tcpip6
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_pppoe
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_lltdio
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_server
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_netbt
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_msclient
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_ndiswan
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_pacer
    .\nvspbind.exe /d * ms_ndiscap

    /d = disable, * = ALL windows adapters, unused ms_protocols
    This results, in my setup, just one adapter for example:

    "Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller"
        Local Area Connection
       disabled: ms_rdma_ndk      (Microsoft RDMA - NDK) (previously hidden and enabled)
       enabled:  ms_tcpip         (Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4))
       disabled: ms_implat        (Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol) (previously hidden and enabled)
       disabled: ms_netbios       (NetBIOS Interface)
       disabled: ms_lldp          (Microsoft LLDP Protocol Driver)
       disabled: ms_ndiscap       (Microsoft NDIS Capture)
       disabled: ms_tcpip6        (Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6))
       disabled: ms_rspndr        (Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder)
       disabled: ms_pppoe         (Point to Point Protocol Over Ethernet) (hidden and previously enabled)
       disabled: ms_ndisuio       (NDIS Usermode I/O Protocol)
       disabled: ms_lltdio        (Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver)
       disabled: ms_server        (File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks)
       disabled: ms_wfplwf_upper  (WFP 802.3 MAC Layer LightWeight Filter) (not sure)
       disabled: ms_netbt         (WINS Client(TCP/IP) Protocol)
       disabled: ms_msclient      (Client for Microsoft Networks)
       enabled:  oracle_vboxnetlwf (VirtualBox NDIS6 Bridged Networking Driver)
       disabled: ms_wfplwf_lower  (WFP Native MAC Layer LightWeight Filter)
       disabled: ms_pacer         (QoS Packet Scheduler)

    Customize this to your preference.
