Legion Y520-15IKBM Ethernet connection download speeds slower than with other devices

2020-08-01, 3:17 AM

Hi there. Nice to greet you guys. I'm having a slight problem with my internet signal throughout Ethernet connection, the download speed should be at least 9mbps because 10mbps is the max speed the internet supports. The Ethernet connection is downloading a speed of 4mbps and the wifi 3.6 or so. The laptop data is S/N: (removed) Type machine: 0647 Product: Legion Y520-15IKBM Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 80YY - Type 0647the difference found is a gap of or 6mbps on the cellphone wifi, cellphone is reaching 11mbps. What could be the difference between speed on devices?

Welcome to the Community

 

A speed difference such as you're experiencing is often due to antivirus or antimalware software scanning each chunk of data as it comes in. That slows things down. So does a VPN if you're on one. Just some things to consider. :)

WebRT leak shield & setupVPN running there's no leaking and threats and the system is secured but the current speed is 2.57 now lower than those programs when not running. Always the wifi signal is locked up. We tend to be is more the device? The modem is tossing up the signal right to other devices.. thanks.

It does appear you have programs running that would result in slower download speeds. Adjusting them or removing them is a decision you'll have to make.
