    have a new orbi netgear router and i have something wierd going on
    if i open 2 folders on surface book. my PC download folder and the folder i want to copy to on surface book
    if i drag and drop im getting a 45mb/s transfer. nice and quick. file flies over
    if i do the opposite and try to copy from surface book folder to PC folder its like 300 kb/s.
    same happens if i use PC. i can transfer to laptop quickly but if i access laptop folder and try to drag and drop to PC lags like hell and once file transfer starts its around 300 kb/s.
    cant work out what the heck is going on because everything else works ok.

    PC is on wired 1gbit and laptop on 5g wireless adn ive put them all next to each other and like 1m away from router to test

    tried about 4 fixes various fixes now none work at all. windows 10 is so broken with networking. surely its not this hard


    Edit. found this solution and it worked
    Disable Large send offload feature
    now im getting 40 mb/s transfer speed so pretty much maxing the drive out
