Hi all. I just finished a fresh install of Windows 7 64-bit on a brand new computer yesterday. Here are the specs: Asus P6T mobo nVidia GTX 275 seagate 500 gb hard drive 6gb kingston ram My problem is that my download/upload speeds have decreased significantly, on the same network that I had been using a different computer on previously. I used to be able to download things at at least 500 kb/s, but now I'm lucky if I can get it over 50 kb/s. Upload speeds have been throttled too. My network adapter is a Realtek PCIe GBE family controller. This is a hard-wired connection, so no wireless card. I've tried the command prompt line I've seen in other threads concerning similar issues, disabled QoS, tried starting in safe mode, tried rebooting a thousand times, uninstalled the network adapter and installed the newest one from Realtek. None of these things has helped. I even tried using a different ethernet cable. I'm so confused. It's taking insanely long times just to download small files. I live in a dorm where we plug our computers straight into the ethernet port in the wall, so there is no router to complicate the issue. Furthermore, when I view the details of my network connection, it says the speed is 100mbps. It just doesn't behave as if that's the case. Can anyone help?
