Hello,

Like the title says, when i open a game my download speed goes from 300mb/s to 1-5mb/s.
How is that possible, i cant find any option for disabling a wifi bandwitch limiter or something.

I hope someone can help me out, already contacted support they don't know the problem....

Since the Creator 15 adopts the Killer LAN & Wi-Fi, you could check the software "Killer Network".

Make sure you have installed the latest drivers for your wireless card.
300mbs is this your router speed or your provider speed?
Could you be more specific of what games you are playing when this happens?
The latest COD and Days Gone, games similar to these scan your system for information for it's database at startup.
Check if any downloads are active, example if on STEAM, UPLAY, GOG, EPIC, etc. if downloads are automatic, then they will start downloading after you log on.

Thank you for the answer,
1gbs is our download speed with the provider.
It happens with the game Call of duty cold war
I can see at the speed test if i open cold war with speed test open i can see directly that the speed goes down.

Well I guess you have chosen THE game with the most latency issues for online gaming...if your ONLY problem is bandwidth, you're lucky!

Does the problem occur while using lan?
Try to reinstall the latest bt and wlan driver released on msi website.
If the problem still remains, it may also be related to hardware.

try full battery recharging cycle "mobility" windows default 90-100./. cycle + AC
for lower battery level EC is more active "energy saving"

and minimal battery wear level
HWINFO :biggrin:

edit
drivers - intel page
AX - 22.80 or newer - latest / try disable all "link power save -setup" in driver setup // windows power scheme setup
