I did a clean resintall of Win 8.1 Pro x64 last week on my desktop PC and one thing I forgot to check before starting had to do with adjustments I had made some months back that in effect regulated download speeds. At the time, after a Charter system uprade and some fixes by their CSR, my larger file downloads with Internet Download Manager jumped from ~3.6 mb/s max to 8.6 mb/s. The downside was that those faster ones were slowing everything else needing internet connectivity, and some not, to a crawl. Someone on a forum I can't find now, who knew about this, had a fix that brought everything back down to the 3.6 mb/s level and solved the problem. I'm forgetting if it was a network settings adjustment within Windows or, more likely from vague recollection, an adjustment to the router settings (TP-Link Archer C8), as my cable modem line goes through it. I just ran a "ping 192.168.0.1" on the TCP/IPv4 connection and it looks good, which I assume means my PC is in the managed range. Anyone know what the adjustment(s) I'm looking for might be? Thanks,

Charter's test shows ~65 mbs down and ~4.3 mbs up; testmy.net shows 27 and 4.1.
