I was away for a few days and when I turned on my computer, I noticed a sudden drop in my internet speed. I used to be able to download games from steam at around 3.2 Mb/s and it dropped to 800 Kb/s. Also, streaming videos online has drastically slowed down. When I went to the windows troubleshooter, it told me my dns wasn't working correctly. I searched online for this and found that I have to change my preferred dns to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. After I did this, the troubleshooter said there was no problem, however, my internet is still a lot slower than it has been. If anyone knows what the problem is, please let me know.
Thanks.

First, reset your router. Find your internet router, unplug it and plug it back in after 30 seconds. Re-boot your PC and try the internet again.
