    Hi again,

    I finally got Windows 10 installed properly on my Macbook Pro (model A1706), but now unfortunately I've run into another problem.

    Here's the speed result when running Windows 10: http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6498153111.png

    And here's the result in macOS Sierra: http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6498163175.png

    3.65 Mbps compared to 91.71 Mbps (25x slower in Windows 10), which is absolutely ridiculous.

    It seems a lot of people have had this problem and many said it's the network adapter driver. The network adapter on this laptop is a Broadcom 802.11ac.

    However I've installed the latest drivers (that didn't work) and I've gone back and installed older ones direct from the hardware creator and that didn't work either. Seems whatever I do either makes it worse, or just keeps me at this very restricted speed.

    Has any got any ideas on how to fix this please?

    Thank you

    Apple recently issued an updated Wireless Driver via the Windows Apple Software Update application. Have you installed that?
