  1. How is your desktop connected?
  2. This all depends on how the computer is connected to the internet and the priority settings that you have set. If the phone has a higher priority than the desktop, it will have more bandwidth and speed.
  3. connected via ethernet cable, it was running fine last week at 60mb then noticed a massive drop back to 10mb when downloading games from steam at 1.2mb/s
  4. Check you cabling from your PC all the way to the router. You might have a damaged cable that is causing your NIC to fall back to 10Mbps.
  5. cable is fine, have even turned every wireless object off too and its still at 10mb/s
  6. Try copying a file to or from you PC to another device on your LAN. Is it still 10Mbps? If so, then you have a cable or NIC problem.

    Have you actually tried replacing the cable and using a different port on the router?
