    Well... I guess you could say that, using the word "happy" in a purely relative sense and not literally. Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB is the least screwed up version of Windows 10, for sure. And, the most stable. Still not as good as Windows 7, but I doubt it ever will be. They seem hell bent on building in a ton of worthless bloat filth in the crappy Home and Pro versions and that just bogs things down and wastes drive space while adding absolutely nothing of any value.

    Stick to the subject please - it's not a Win 10 thread.

    It has nothing to do with your download speed or upload.. The upgraded speed is actually network speed between devices bare in mind..
    And to fully use this bumped speed needs latest router + other devices on other side.. Not just yours.. If other side is slow then no point.....

    I didn't say internet speed was limited by KCC.
    I meant running speedtest via KCC is quicker since you don't have to type the URL and click GO button.
    The speedtest module simplifies the process.

    Anyone have an issue with the 1550 where it takes an excessively long time for it to reconnect to your network following a reboot? Mine takes upwards of 60 seconds. If I manually connect it works fine. Almost like there’s a built in delay

    I can't be 100% sure because I have flashed newer version of DD-WRT and then got back to the previous one which might have left some "new" settings, but it seems that the driver above fixed issues Intel 9260/Killer 1550 had with A-MSDU higher than 7900 resulting in drastic improvement in performance with Marvell chips at 160MHz channel width.
    It's odd that we get new drivers from Killer despite the fact that Intel is the one making them but I'm not complaining :)
