I have a Lenovo T460 (Windows 10, version1703, x64) which was updated to Windows 10 Creators version two weeks ago. Since that time I have had Bluetooth and wifi issues. While I think I have fixed the Bluetooth issues the wifi remains quite slow (computer to computer transfer). My file transfer rates between computers , and my NAS (LaCie 2Big NAS) was ~ 8-9 MBps (64 - 72 Mbps), not super great but fine for backing up 2- 5 GBs of files every other day. Now I'm lucky to have 1.2 MBps. I have a Lenovo T430 (Windows 10 ver 1673) and a Lenovo T520 (Windows 7) which still transfer files ~ 8-9 MBps. I've run Windows troubleshooter, believe I have the correct (new) drivers for Intel (R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260. Although Intel has an updated driver (ver 19.71.0) while Lenovo still is recommending ver 126.96.36.199. I typically stick with Lenovo's (posted) drivers rather than going to Intel directly. Is this a known issue with Windows Creators. Might it be another problem. I'm at a lose??

The following informaiton appears to have fixed my problem. My transfer rates increased by 466% (~ 1.2 MBps to 7.4 MBps)
Workaround #1 (Recommended by Microsoft):
Disable "Receive segment coalescing" (Rsc) on your wireless adapter
Tripp Parks [MSFT], provided an excellent workaround, that is recommended by Microsoft, and appears to resolve the issues. Thanks Tripp! And Tyler [MSFT] has provided a tool that automates it. Thanks Tyler!
Steps to disable Rsc using Microsoft's automated tool:
1) Download the ".diagcab" file located here:
2) Run it, and let it see if it can determine the problem and fix it.
3) Re-test your wireless internet connection.
If you'd rather do it manually, then I have those steps below.
Steps to disable Rsc manually:
1) Open an Admin Command Prompt window:
Start > All Apps > Windows System -> Right-click "Command Prompt" > More > Run as administrator
... Note: If you want this available on your Start's Right-click menu, you can go to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Replace Command Prompt > Set to Off
2) Get your network adapter name:
3) Note your adapter's name (mine is: Wi-Fi)
4) Get your network adapter "Receive segment coalescing" (Rsc) settings:
... Mine listed a table that had 1 row, for adapter name Wi-Fi, that had IPv4Enabled True, and IPv6Enabled True
5) Disable Rsc for your network adapter:
powershell Disable-NetAdapterRsc -Name ADAPTER_NAME_FROM_BEFORE
... Be sure to replace ADAPTER_NAME_FROM_BEFORE with whatever your network adapter name is, without quotes
6) Verify Rsc is disabled for ipv4 and ipv6, on your network adapter:
... Should now show IPv4Enabled False, and IPv6Enabled False, for your network adapter
7) Re-test your wireless internet connection.
So, did this workaround work for you?
