It appears to be working, but how do I check to make sure?

I followed all the steps and found that it was not enabled. So, I enabled it, set Bandwidth limit to 0, pressed the apply button and when it finished applying the changes I pressed the OK button. When that screen closed, the Limit Reservable Bandwidth was marked ‘enabled’.

It’s working like a charm now. I run Windows 7 Pro, so I wasn’t sure if the procedure for Windows 10 would work. But as stated, my internet flies now.
Thank you.
