    Any idea on why I'm getting 50 to 150KB/s download on Driver 17.2.1 on a 100Mbps fiber connection?

      Edit: I tried downloading the 17.2.1 recommended update manually after AMD Settings failed to recognise the hardware after an automatic install.

      Edit: I'm now assuming that the slow download might be due to issues with the update.

       

      I've stuck with AMD for years.

       

      But recently, I had the privilege to get a full 100Mbps fibre connection.

       

      I get 96Mbps actual connection speed with peak download of around 12 MB/s

       

      It's bad enough that the AMD driver package has blown out to nearly 500MB but, why is it drip feeding so slowly?

       

      Windows 10 64bit

      XFX R9 295x2

      whql-win10-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-relive-17.2.1-feb22.exe

       

      I've tried:

       

      • Rebooting my router
      • Isolating the ethernet connection from the modem
      • Checking my firewall and antivirus settings
      • Rebooting windows

       

      And I cannot get over 110KB/s average speed.

       

      It's like a 2 hour download...??

       

      I put up with that for decades on a 500KB/s ADSL2 connection, and just had to wear it.

       

      But why, with a 100Mbps fiber/ethernet wired connection, am I getting such a horrendous drip feed of drivers?
