    Hello CHADK3, Let us ensure that Parallels Tools are properly installed. Please follow this link to install Parallels Tools. If you see reinstall or update Parallels Tools then kindly reinstall it.

    Please shut Windows down, open the virtual machine configuration window, navigate to Hardware -> Network 1, select 'Default Adapter' (under 'Bridged Network:') for 'Source', enable 'Network Conditioner', select 'Custom' for 'Profile' and set 'Bandwidth' to 'Unlimited' for both 'Inbound' and 'Outbound'. Close the window now and check for the issue again.

    I had the same problem as OP, tried everything else (shared vs bridged, reinstall tools etc) and this was the only thing to fix it.

    Yes, by default VM's network bandwidth is limited. We can change by turning ON the Network Conditioner and setting Bandwidth as Unlimited.
