Network utilization column in windows 8 task manager not working; It always reporting 0% although it reports values for each app!


  • Try stressing the network connection harder. Without being able to tell how you have it sorted, if Chrome is the only program using the network right then, 0.1Mbps might not hit 1% or higher utilization. Start up something that uses more bandwidth and then see if it changes.

  • I tried this but noway. It was working but it stopped suddenly ! Dec 31 '12 at 21:45
  • @Mark 0.1Mbps must be reflected as 0.1%; It was working; Was Microsoft reduced the accuracy in any update? Dec 31 '12 at 21:49
  • I don't know, sorry. Maybe check your event log and see if there are any complaints about loading performance counters for the network card.
