Updating Power Options - Windows

Windows may be set to a "Balanced" power setting, which will affect the performance of your Wi-Fi card by placing it in power-saving mode.


The High-Performance power plan disables dynamic scaling of performance to match the workload and instead delivers constant high-performance levels at the cost of increased power consumption. This power plant is useful in certain scenarios that are high-performance or latency-sensitive or in scenarios in which power consumption is not an issue.



1: Right-click the battery icon in your system tray and choose “Power Options” and Select "Change Advance power settings"
