Jesus some of you have an axe to grind here. If setting zany QOS rules to prevent something that takes 3 clicks to disable, if it's not working for your computer/network, is "making the right decision", I'll gladly keep making the "wrong" ones over here.
I don't like Windows 10 or Microsoft's BS as much as the next person, but a good deal of what I've been hearing from people about Windows 10 crosses the line between actual issues into clueless griping.
The problem wasn't fixed by enabling p2p updates(it was disabled). I tried that. If there is another three click solution(or more) I'd like to know what it is.
We had 10+ computers on the network and the internet wasn't working for anyone. I tried to diagnose why. The router log showed thousands of connections coming from the only win10 computer on the network. All going to windows update servers. I've never seen that many connections before. Unplugging the cable to the win10 box temporally fixed the problem. Our modem can only handle 4032 sessions. Normally we have less than 500 sessions, but win10 opened as many as it could. Editing the registry to limit the max connections did nothing(used to work with win8). Neither did turning on/off p2p updates. Tried win10 on a second computer with a fresh install, also tried an insider preview copy. Nothing stopped the flood of sessions. Gave up trying to fix the problem with windows 10 and instead created a QoS rule on a router.
What should I have done? I'm not a pro network admin, but don't think I'm guilty of clueless griping(this time). Just dyslexia, and being stuck with dsl.
