Fix for the slow Windows USB connection

Here's how to fix the slow USB connection to Windows PC's: 

STEP 1:

Open the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel. And locate the Local Area Connection that appears when Ember is connected to your PC via USB: NOTE: It will probably have some other number than the “51” shown here.

STEP 2:

Click on that Local Area Connection to open its Status dialog:

STEP 3:

Click on “Details…”and note the IPv4 Address and Subnet Mask:

STEP 4:

Close the Network Connection Details dialog, and on the Local Area Connection Status dialog click “Properties”:

STEP 5:

On the Local Area Connection Properties dialog, select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and click “Properties”:

 

STEP 6:

Select "Use the following IP address:", and enter the IP address and Subnet mask noted in step 3 (usually just 192.168.7.1 and 255.255.255.0, respectively).  Leave Default gateway blank. Click “OK”, “Close”, and “Close”.
