    Default Problems when windows 10 updates

    Hello,

    Every time a windows 10 machine updates, my internet slow downs or even hangs. People on the other side connecting to my firewall using openvpn have the slowdowns problems too and I'm 100% sure is the windwos 10 machine updating windows. It happened a few times and now happened with a machine right on my side. For example now tx is 26 KB/s and rx 4 KB/s
    I'm using untangle paid version 11.2.1
    What can it be?

    Congratulations, you've discovered one of Windows 10's best "features".

    By default it updates via torrent... and your server just doesn't have the guts to deal with it.

    What hardware are you using? Because this is the sort of thing I'd expect of Realtek NICs.

    Now, on your Windows 10 boxes:

    Start -> Settings -> Update and Security -> Windows Update

    Click the advanced options link

    Click the Choose how updates are delivered link

    Now, either turn the feature off entirely, or at least make sure it's set to PC's on my local network. That way your system will only torrent updates to its neighbors. Honestly, I have it turned off entirely because even the match making traffic is a bit excessive after awhile.

    You could also put in a SUS or InTune server, and point clients there for updates.

    My server is a Dell PwoereEdge R210 II with broadcom network cards.
    Thanks for the replies, looks like that can be the reason, but no clue why it takes down my internet when downloading an iso using bittorrent don't

    Thumbs down

    you are not sending torrents OUT, for simply getting your ISO.

    Thanks, Micro$oft.

    Never10 isn't enough, Microsoft is pushing out Windows 10 as a critical update on some systems now.

    Like it or not... here it comes.

    Alright, so here is my question.

    If someone walks into my BYOD Wi-Fi facility, has Win 10 loaded and torrents going out to random clients, how do I block that from eating up my limited upload bandwidth?
