Hello,
I have a Dell 7537 running win 8.1
I am experiencing significantly lower download speed when on battery
I am using an Ethernet connection
I noticed some settings in power management concerning WIFI but nothing about LAN
Does anybody know how to make it run as fast as it can?
Thank you

PS: Slower download is only when done through the browser (firefox), when downloading torrents through torrent client it downloads with max speed

Have you tried downloading through a different browser?
Are you able to disable power management or set it to performance mode when on battery AC?

I tried switching to performance mode and nothing happened as far as download speed goes.
I tested torrent speed and that was working ok and then tried downloading through IE and download speed was fast. Then tried the download through firefox again and it had fixed itself.
Now speed is ok.
I just don't know what fixed it and I hope it doesn't happen again.

Sometimes the way to fix things is a restart/reinstall. Hope that solves your problem :)
