Chrome is giving me in excess of 500Mb upload and download speed. Edge will give over 500mb download but only 60mb upload. Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi and thanks for reaching out. My name is Bernard. I'm a Microsoft Windows expert and a Microsoft Windows fan like you. I'll be happy to help you out today.

I actually experience the same issue as before and by following the steps below fixed my issue I hope it works for you as well, moreover I know some of these steps already done, but it is better if you do it in sequence.

First what we will do is to enable WWAN and WLAN services, these services are essential to run the Wireless and wired connection perfectly.

- Open Services (Press Windows key + R then type in services.msc then click OK)

-Look for WLAN Autoconfig and WWAN Autoconfig> Right Click Properties and set it to automatic (If it's already set to automatic, right click then click stop then start it again)

-Restart PC and check


If the issue persists, run the following command in command Prompt (Admin). Follow the steps below to do so.

These sets of commands will reset the internet connection and re-calibrate the internet settings you have.

Press Windows Key + X.
Click on Command prompt (Admin).
Type the following commands, and hit Enter after each command:
netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
netsh winsock reset and press Enter
netsh int ip reset and press Enter
ipconfig /release and press Enter
ipconfig /renew and press Enter
ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter

Method 4: IP and DNS Setting, Trying an open DNS will redirect the internet connection to other Access point, by this it may get all the download speed you have.
Type ncpa.cpl in Windows start > Right click on your network > Properties > Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > Hit properties > Make sure below ones are checked
Obtain an IP Address Automatically
Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically

Try Open DNS
Preferred DNS server : 208.67.222.222
Alternate DNS server : 208.67.220.220

Method 2. Do clean boot:
A “clean boot” starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your game or program.

- In the search box on the taskbar, type msconfig and select System Configuration from the results.

- On the Services tab of System Configuration, select Hide all Microsoft services, and then select Disable all.

- On the Startup tab of System Configuration, select Open Task Manager.

- Under Startup in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then select Disable.

- Close Task Manager.

- On the Startup tab of System Configuration, select OK. When you restart the computer, it's in a clean boot environment.

Hey there K1800,

I know this thread was posted a while ago but I wanted to check in and see if you're still having issues with your upload speeds in the latest version of Microsoft Edge. If you (or anyone landing on this thread via search) are still seeing this, let me know!

Hi Alex,

I have exactly the same issue with my computer ( professional one). Chrome is allowing a 10 to 15x faster upload. My other computer at home are not showing that behavior. I have reported the issue to our IT support, but so far they do not understand. They have reinstalled my computer, etc...

I have indicated to our It support the reference to this post too.

I cannot change all the parameters as recommended being not an admin on my computer.

Regards

No worries on this! If your policy allows, can you submit feedback via Edge's "…" menu in the top right > Help and feedback > Send feedback, check the box to include diagnostic data and detail what you are seeing in terms of upload speed between your browsers and different machines? Please also include the string "AMC0303AR-1010LUO-TMEP134" so your feedback can be tied to this thread easily. I'll flag this to the team to investigate further =)

I fixed this by adjusting the onedrive network upload speed from automatic to the limit of the ISP. Go figure, but somehow Windows 10 and Edge uses these preferences.

I'm having the same problem with a slow upload speed using edge. I did everything advised except changing the onedrive settings. Nothing has worked on this thread.
