When laptop connected to net it slows all other devices down, eg my tablet and wife's laptop. All work fine when it not connected. Provider suggested new router but that made no dufference, likewise a new filter. Laptop seen by technician and all items updated etc. Any suggestions welcome as don't wish to purchase new laptop

Chances are that it is downloading Windows Updates. Your Bandwidth is always limited and so this will slow the others.

Once the Updates are installed, it will just require what bandwidth you ask of it

Thanks for your reply. All updates were installed by tech guy a few days ago and it was and is still affecting other devices. When I disconnect it from net other devices work fine.
