Windows !0 Issues

We have had about 10 windows 10 machines that once upgrading and attacted to our network, it has brought i network to a crawl or even a stand stil.  The wierd thing is that not all machines that have windows 10 seem to do it.   Any suggestions?

One other thing, probably irrelevant, that made several of my Win 10 conversions painfully slow, and that is the indexing of Outlook OST and PST files.  When you get through running the Win 10 update, by default the Windows indexing service (not Outlook indexing) automatically includes all the Outlook data files.  I have several users that besides having ginormous OST files had multiple large network connected PST file archives.
 
Disk usage on the PC was at 100 percent and the PC so sluggish and unresponsive, network or otherwise, that it behaved as though it was completely locked up, although a five minute wait usually produced some results.  Disabling Win 10 indexing of Outlook solved the problem for me.

You'll have to monitor network activity. There's no known issue with 10 that would explain this "crawl/standstill". We upgraded our network to 10 completely and there is no such standstill to be seen.
You might be able to describe the symptoms better.

Check two things
that all are using internet protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6  as well as IPv4 in network sharing change adapter settings>properties of local area connection
If using cable ethernet disable wireless
check if wireless is interfering
Has the router been rebooted?
How old is the cables? Try testing with another cable

Windows 10 uses standard networking and defaults will work.

Are these machines updating?  The anniversary update is very large

You can try sharing the updates. Start, Settings, Updates, Advanced Options, Choose how updates are delivered. Use the setting for "More than one place (other computers)"

Disable all the Windows 10 crapps that could be calling home.

Besides that, if you aren't yet on build 1607 which was released on the 2nd of August, your systems might be automatically downloading the upgrade. As this is a big download (ca. 4GB) this can of course make your LAN slow down.

I have my machines set as default per that article and my internet on my two machines and a couple of client machines is not slow. So I would proceed cautiously before disabling defaults. At least document well what you have so you can revert if need be.

as other have mentioned I think it would  be very beneficial to get a packet trace from a Windows 10 machine to see what type of network traffic is coming in and out of the workstation so you know what your are dealing with..

You can use Wireshark to see network traffic on a machine. I use CommView to do this.
