nuc5i5ryk Lan Network Controller


I am trying to figure out why I am having severe speed issues with my nuc5i5ryk, both Ethernet and Wireless. I have downloaded and installed most recent updates but I am only receiving about 6 megs down when I should be typically getting 100 to 125 Ethernet and 60 plus WI-Fi. I am running Windows 10 64 bit and generally use the machine as a media player. The machine is connected to an Lynksys EA6500 in bridge mode. I am also having speed issues with the unit via internal Lan, as I have a music library on an attached SATA drive. I now have buffering issues with other machines that did not exist prior to using the NUC. All of the speed issues are new with the introduction of nuc5i5ryk and did not exist prior using a different machine.

Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello rainwolf127:

Thank you for contacting the Intel Communities.

I was able to confirm that the Intel® Ethernet Connection I218-V does support (10/100/1000 Mb/s) speeds so that shouldn't be the cause.

Are you seeing these speeds with a speed test from a website? or an specific software being used?

Lets test the network speed using this driver (latest as per 12/14/2015) Download Network Adapter Driver for Windows® 10

Then I would like you to uninstall the driver from the device manager under network adapters and after that, let Windows install the default drivers.

Also, make sure you have the latest drivers for Chipset and Management Engine. Download Chipset: Intel® Chipset Device Software for Intel® NUC Download Intel® ME 11: Management Engine Driver for Intel® NUC

If you are still having issues after the steps above, lets update the BIOS in your system, if already up to date, a recovery would be a good option. Intel® NUC Boards and Kits — BIOS Update Instructions Intel® NUC Boards and Kits — BIOS Recovery Update Instructions
