Hello Gideon, 


Thank you for your question regarding Windows 10. Unfortunately, it is unclear what would cause this issue. One possibility is that an application is streaming or downloading data in the background once the internet connection is established. This could slow down the rest of your computer as a result. Another possibility is that you have malware on your computer that is slowing down the rest of the programs. I recommend performing a virus scan using Malwarebytes or a similar application. 

Best Regards,
