Resisted installing the Windows 10 Home x64 Creator's update until the only option available was "Update and Shutdown" rather than simply "Shutdown". Now Internet access is very very slow and has become essentially unusable. Other machines on the same WiFi are fine, so I am convinced it is a result of the Windows 10 Update.
Checked the Network Drivers but none required updating. Cannot find any clear solution on Internet searches. Have read the reply by Shashi_Lenovo to another recent query but would need some more detail on the exact procedures to follow.
Can anyone assist?

Well, using the Windows Device Manager to "update the network driver" (over the Internet) the advice was that the best driver was already installed (V. 220.127.116.11). However, on checking the Intel site there is a newer driver, V.18.104.22.168 dated this only month. Used the Intel Driver Update Utility to scan, download and install the latest network driver and it appears to have solved the problem! Took the opportunity to further update the Intel Bluetooth driver, although not sure yet if this has been successful.
Trust this may be of assistance to others with the problem.
It would be really useful if MS could have provided some guidance on this, especially after forcing the installation of the Creator update.

The Intel Driver Update Utility worked really well and is recommended. The Intel (R) Wireless Bluetooth(R) driver was updated at the same time to V.22.214.171.124 - messages displayed to restart - shutting down and restarting did not seem to work but the "restart" option (as directed!) did successfully complete the update. All seems to be working fine again.
