Tell us a bit more about your connection - is it wireless or ethernet?

You say that your other machine has normal downstream speeds - is it using the same connection, and is it located in the same place?

Which version of Windows are you using?

hello, thanks for your reply. i use wireless, but as i stated before, i tried ethernet without change. the other devices are on wifi too, and the other notebook is even further away from the router (i am sitting 2 meters from it). using win 10
