Windows 10 Network Adapter speed 3x faster inside Vmware than Windows itself RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 7 was perfectly fine. I've been having this problem since migrating to windows 10 two years ago. Windows 10 internet speed is capped at 100 megabits even though the adapter connected status is 1.0 gigabit, I use the latest drivers (2020-08), "speed guide" optimized, and "default" windows settings result in the same problem. CTCP, enabling/disabling energy saving and all the rest under adapter properties makes no difference. The only temporary solution that worked previously was a reinstall of windows 10, but the problem eventually returned. Windows 10 has serious issues with networking.

    Using a linux virtual machine inside vmware bridged to the same  adapter results in download speeds 3-5x faster on average. Using a windows 10 vmware virtual machine bridged to the adapter results in the same slow speeds.
