    As the title says its really ridiculous with every insider update my whole internet become unusable because windows thinks its the top priority so it has no problem to use all the available bandwidth ( i had 8Mbps before and now 16Mbps) and its the same problem and there no way to pause the update ( beside killing the updater service and BITS service) or allocate maximum bandwidth allowed for windows update....UGH M$ not all people around the world has +100Mbps internet. :weep:

    it's probably the new Windows Update Delivery Optimization service.

    disable it in 'settings' -> 'update & security' -> 'Windows update' -> 'advanced options' -> 'choose how updates are delivered' and turn it off. And just so you know, selecting 'PCs on my local network' will not make any difference, you have to turn it off.

    If it's already off there isnt much you can do other than using a QoS to slow WU traffic or just turning WU off.

    its already off but i think windows still uses peer to peer to download the update but not upload it , cause if it was just normal download from M$ servers it shouldn't slow down the whole network ( even using IDM to download some files from normal servers wont slow down the network to crawl as windows insider updates).

    anyway guess i will look for someway to slow down the WU traffic. :D

    I download sometimes at ~80Mbps, with no effect on browsing.

    My Windows Update uses 50% of my CPU and more then 800 MB RAM :( I let it run more than 8 hour and it is still checking for updates.

    Try to perform a cleanup, you can use mine and additionally try WU Fix, both in my sig, just ran it as admin and sit back.

    Remove all network protocols, especially QoS and WU will not take over, all network traffic will be equal then. :cool:

    About the most stupid advise I've seen for a couple for months. You don't really understand what QoS is in the first place. Plus the genius idea of removing the file and printer sharing. :rofl::bangin:

    I do not have sigh (100+ mbs) internet, and I do not take the normal Insider upgrades. Turn it off, simple - then wait until the ESD is available, and convert esd to install.wim then I make the iso, then mount and upgrade that way... for me also is much faster and much much safer. (do remember that MS stated this was a preferred method if you have any issue.) seems that you do have an issue.
    :) :)
    I also do this UPGRADE method for all my CLIENTS that have 6mbs or lower speeds.
    I also add the ISO to USB which for me is faster than DVD...
    current editions I do this for
    Core - home
    Professional
    Enterprise
    MAK
    Retail
    OEM
    Insider
