Don't worry, I already tried resetting, reinstalling drivers, unplugging/replugging, and doing something I saw in other answers to this kind of issue. None of them worked. I did not look at the back side of my computer but I will soon. Pretty much my computer's upload speed is <1 mbps, while my download speed is insane (because of xfinity wifi). The internet was normal until I tried fixing a sound issue, then it began acting like so.


I looked at the Google Wifi app on my phone to check if something was wrong there because my computer is plugged in via ethernet to OnHub. I noticed that the IP address on my computer and in the app didn't match up!

    Please include information on WHAT you have tried. The way your "question" is phrased the answer would be: Welp you checked everything and did everything so I guess you're just unlucky. Including a question sign would also help. Do you use the same access with another device and does it have a different upload speed? What did you try to fix your sound issue? – Seth Dec 16 '16 at 8:23
  • I have tested on different devices over wifi and possibly ethernet and they all showed normal upload speeds. The sound issue was with my headset mic, and i had some trouble reinstalling the driver, but I got the driver back and I think the issue was hardware related. That was when I noticed the upload speed issue. I searched for a solution yet everything I found didn't work. – Andy Herbert Dec 16 '16 at 19:16
  • What kind of headset are you using? What was that other thing? How did you test your upload speed? – Seth Dec 16 '16 at 21:50
  • My headset is a 2 wire analog surround sound with a mic. I am testing my speed with speedtest.net, but I also get disconnected when playing multiplayer games even though my ping is low. – Andy Herbert Dec 16 '16 at 23:37

Solved!! Turns out cofspeed's traffic shaping was causing issues. I disabled it and now uploads are fine. I probably need to calibrate cfospeed if I want to use it.
