Hi All

After some recent Dell updates to my Dell XPS15 7590 my home wifi has dropped to a rediculous 2mb/s whilst other laptops in the house have 70mb/s on Plusnet.

After searching there appears to be issues around the Killer AX1650 network card.

The default settings on the network card delivering 2mb/s were:

After some experimentation with these settings I got 70mb/s with the following settings:

Can someone tell me what the optimum setup should be for Plusnet and whether I have a problem with the Killer AX1650 communicating with a Plusnet router?

Many thanks

Al

Throw the Killer card in the bin and buy an Intel one. I've done this dance with drivers so many times, it's not worth the hassle.

these wifi cards are generally easy to swap you should be able to snag a new one for bugger all on ebay, I bin them all the time infact pm me your address and I'll post you an intel one for nothing . id assume its the std laptop wireless slot that's been the same for 10 years
