How To Fix Slow Internet In Windows 10

[Use Simple Command To Correct Anniversary Update Error]

A persistent part of owning a computer is using it to access the internet for various purposes. However, just like any other device, the computer too can give you problems.

These problems often involve connectivity issues that can be caused by a host of issues, which may or may not be the fault of the computer itself.

Generally, people that use computers would try to diagnose this problem by accessing the Network Connection Details of their computer.

However, if the problem is with the operating system itself, then it can’t be solved just by tweaking the network settings. One potential reason for such problems is the Window Auto Tuning feature that was first introduced in Windows Vista.

It has been known to slow down your internet, and unfortunately, it’s back with the Anniversary Update of Windows 10. Thankfully, you can still disable it with a few simple steps:

  1. Open the “Run Dialog Box” as Administrator.
  2. Type netsh interface tcp show global into the window and press Enter.
  3. You will see a list of “TCP Global Parameters”.
  4. Look for an entry named “Receive Windows Auto-Tuning Level”.
  5. If it says Normal next to it, then it means that the feature is active.
  6. Type netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled and press Enter.
  7. This will disable the feature.
  8. Wait for a few minutes before checking if it helped.
  9. If not, type netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal to restart the feature.

With these easy steps, you will be able to take care of your slow internet caused by the Window Auto Tuning feature.
