Preferred Solution: My computer slow down the internet speed in my network

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: My computer slow down the internet speed in my network

Okay, this has been going on for weeks. Even my pretty techie bro is out of ideas. My brother returned to college not long ago, but he was still home when it all started. I'd asked him to see if internet was slow or anything, and he checked and told me it was fine. A few days later my dad brought his laptop home from work. The laptop is only on our network when he's doing stuff at home - but I asked him, and I was for myself it was completely fine...and fast. And as my brother's now back at college with his laptop, my computer is generally the only one on the network, but as it was going on before that, I know their laptops weren't effecting anything.

Now that we're done with the back-story, I'll do my best to explain what's going on: The connection on my computer is fine. Sometimes it'll short out, but generally it's good. However, it's always slow - about maybe 2 times faster than dial-up. But pretty often it becomes incredibly slow, taking as much as 20-30 minutes to load something, even simpler things.

That's the best I can come up with right now about the problem. Resetting the router and/or restarting the computer can help a little, but it eventually goes to near dial-up speed, then down to when it's very slow.

I guess something to add is that I'm the only one with Vista on the computer. My dad's laptop has XP, and my brother has a Mac laptop.

I've only used up a little less than 1/4 of the s... Read more

Hello everyone!

So I've always had a slow internet speed, about 6-15mbps. I pay for 300mbps (big family) but I honestly thought it was my cheap cat5 cable. Then i upgraded my whole computer. That is: a new ssd drive, mobo, cpu, ram and windows 10 fresh install. I still had slow speed. This morning i thought i fixed it, I bought a Netgear Nighthawk X4 ultimate gaming router AND a new Rosewill ac1900PCE internal card for my computer, both at high high speeds. But still.. out of 6 people living in this house, everyones computers get 200-300mbps and i get 20. I thought, maybe its just my wireless signal, but when i'm sitting at my desk, my cellphone gets 250 on the wifi network... so it has to be something in my pc. Can anyone please help?

I am having a weird problem and I suspect it might be a virus (or something nasty at least). Since a week or so I have a really slow internet connection (it's easily noticeable, not just a bit slower. Kind of irritatingly slow ;) ). And 10-20 mins after I turn my PC on the internet connection simply "dies" (I cannot ping anything, even my own ISP, I cannot open/browse any website or whatsoever). My network connections (local area connection + pppoe) "seem" to work. I mean I don't get any notification that it's disabled or whatsoever. But when I try to disconnect any of them nothing happens. As if I haven't clicked "disconnect" at all. I asked a friend that knows more than me and he said that it is probably a virus. I already called my ISP to check if there is something wrong and they said there shouldn't be any problem with the connection.

Also (i don't know if it's related) but I think I have a virus on flash memory I'm using quite often - when I open the flash device directory it opens in a new window instead of opening itself in the same (the same guy said it's a virus and ran some commands in the command prompt and then he tried to delete some weird file from the flash device). I then performed a format on the flash device and it seems to be find now. Another thing is (was) blocking me from enabling "show hidden files". I read about a registry tweak in google to simply enable it.

A bit too much info I guess but I thoug... Read more

Okay, I'm baffled. Usually I can trouble shoot problems, but not this time.

I have 8 computers on my network. My main computer (this one) has a very slow upload speed.

Comcast - 20mb down, 5mb up

This computer - 25mb down, .17mbps up

All of the rest will hit 5mbps up consistently.

Everything I've done here has not worked ...

I've plugged the computer straight into the modem
Updated built in network adaptor drivers
Flushed the DNS: ipconfig /flushdns
Put on a new network cable
Tried a network cable from a computer that does work fine
I spent 45 min's on phone with Comcast support.

I run XP Pro
All upgrades are current
i7 4gig ram
Dual 512k video cards

Computer worked fine few weeks ago. But now it's not.

I do not have an additional slot to install a new NIC card.

What do I try next?
What else do you need to know to help me trouble shoot this?

Thanks alot for your help.

Hi everyone,

I have the following weird problem and couldn't find any solution despite long troubleshooting...

Network architecture:

PC 1: Win 7 Gigabit Card Driver Updated Cable Cat 6 2x1.5TB Western Digital 1xSSD 64GB

PC 2: Win 7 Gigabit Card Driver Updated Cable Cat 6 1x1TB Western Digital

PC 3 (Brand New): Win 7 Motherboard: Gigabit P55A-UD5 All Drivers Updated especially Realtek ones Cable Cat 6 SSD 64GB + Raid5 on 4disks

Trendnet Gigabit Switch

Ex1: Copy PC1 to PC2 = 40-50MB/s >> OK

EX2: Copy PC2 to PC1 = 40-50MB/s >> OK

EX3: Copy PC1 to PC3 = 5MB/s ????!!!

EX4: Copy PC3 to PC1 = 50MB/s >> ok

EX5: Copy PC2 to PC3 = 5MB/s ????!!!

EX6: Copy PC3 to PC2 = 50MB/s >> ok

To sum up:

Given the transfer speed the gigabit network is working.
PC3 is the problem. When copying data from PC3 to PC1 or PC2 transfer speed are OK however when PC1 & PC2 are copying to PC3 the transfer speeds are ridicously slow. How can such a weird situation happen ?

Thanks a lot in advance for sharing your insights.

Hello Everyone,
I need help please. I have 4 computers (iMac, 2 laptops and 1 PC desktop) on a wireless network in different rooms of my house. All but one have 20+ mbps speed. The problem desktop computer is new but has 2.4 mbps speed. I have cable modem with a fast bandwidth and a Cisco N600 router.

I changed the network card (ASUS PCE-N53 Wireless -N Adapter) in the problem computer which didn't improve anything. As I write this, I am using a laptop on the desk with the problem computer and just did a speedtest which came in at 20.13 mbps. If I hard wire the problem computer it runs at 30+ mbps.

Any ideas?


A:Solved: really slow internet speed on one computer

Read other 14 answers

Hey people! My main computer's internet has been very slow. I'm getting only 30 mbps when I should be getting 150 mbps. All of my other devices get 150 mbps speeds. I get full speeds when connected with an ethernet cable. I have a qualcomm atheros ar9287 network adapter installed. The router I'm using is a Cisco DPC3848V. Any help is appreciated!

A:Very slow internet speed on my main computer

How are you connected, 802.11 "b" max is ~5.5Mbps, "a" and "g" max out at ~20 Mbps, etc. WiFi operates at the highest possible speed that both endpoints can support. For example, an 802.11g laptop connected to an 802.11n router will only work at the lower speed of "g". In other words, both devices need to support the same standard in order to operate at those speeds.

Also, are there any physical obstructions in the line of sight between devices? What's the distance between the devices? Is there any radio interference in the area?

Wikipedia: WiFi > Interference

For more details on this topic, see Electromagnetic interference at 2.4 GHz.

Wi-Fi connections can be disrupted or the internet speed lowered by having other devices in the same area. Many 2.4 GHz 802.11b and 802.11g access-points default to the same channel on initial startup, contributing to congestion on certain channels. Wi-Fi pollution, or an excessive number of access points in the area, especially on the neighboring channel, can prevent access and interfere with other devices' use of other access points, caused by overlapping channels in the 802.11g/b spectrum, as well as with decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) between access points. This can become a problem in high-density areas, such as large apartment complexes or office buildings with many Wi-Fi access points.

Additionally, other devices use the 2.4 GHz band: microwave ovens, ISM ban... Read more

Hello Everyone,
So I go on my desktop computer today and what do you know, the internet is really slow. I do a speedtest on my laptop which is right next desktop, and it has regular internet speeds. However, my desktop is really struggling, at times I can't even load basic pages, let alone play games. It's a custom built PC and I'm using a Netcomm wireless adapter to get a wireless connection (I can't use wired). 
What happened?!? Why is this randomly happening? Is my adapter broken? Do I need to update something?
Sorry if this in the wrong place.
If you need any more information to help me solve this problem then just ask.

I just updated to Windows 10 but I think the problem was with Windows 8 too, Sometimes my internet is out on my PC while the internet is still up on my brothers PC, tho this problem happens about 3 times a very few days.. We have 5+ computers in the house and 4 are on daily while 3 is being used daily the 4th one is not very used daily and sometimes off most of the time. So the 2 computers have Windows 10 and 3rd computer has Windows 7 while the 4th computer has Windows 10 also. I read on an article which says that Windows 10 uses bandwidth without you know and I checked task manager and on windows 8 my CPU and Memory was just fine and when I upgraded to Windows 10 my CPU spiked to about 20% and Memory spiked to about 72% and sometimes random numbers appear on all 4 sections( CPU, Memory, Disk, Network).

So how can I fix this problem or is it just Windows 10?

Hi there I am not sure what you would like me to post here, but I believe my computer is infected, oddly enough I am somewhat enjoying this weird issue as I have been able to discover interesting websites like this one to get help. I have been in computers since the Commodore VIC20, I have defeated and rid computers of tons of viruses but this one has got me going around in circles to the point where I cannot tell if I am infected or not. I could just wipe the computer and reinstall windows but I believe something is on my computer but hell if I can find it. I have always been mostly on the hardware side of things and have not dabbled on on the software side of things alot.

I have posted on other sites about my issues with my computer and have received no responses, so I am not sure if my issue is no one knows what to do or what. Please let me know what logs or programs you would like me to run. These are the things I believe to be symptoms:

Limited Internet Bandwidth I have a 100Mbit/sec Connection that is limited to specifically 7.5 MBits/sec, i have other systems running on the same network that have no issue achieving the 100Mbits/sec bandwidth.

Both IE and Firefox had slow connectivity yet I had him do a speedtest with speakeasy.net and it showed good speeds. He says the longer the computer is on, the slower is a surfing the internet. CPU usage is normal.

Could the recovery have messed with his computer networking drivers? He used a gateway recovery disk. His computer is either a gateway or dell computer.

Hi there,

My computer has been running slow for few months now despite having a high speed internet connection. I have tried to fix it by having its set up changed. It didn't fix the problem. It was working fine but one day it suddenly started running slow. At first I thought it must be a problem with the servers of my network provider but that wasn't the case. I've called the cable company to check several times but they said other users were able to use internet in full speed without any problem. I noticed the problem by trying to watch videos from various websites and after this problem occurred, they started loading super, super slowly. It has gotten to a point that I can no longer watch TV shows, movies, and other videos. The only video website that works is YouTube and even that doesn't function completely normally. Only most YouTube videos work without getting stuck too much. Another thing which I must mention is that quite often the internet cuts off in midst of browsing sessions and it doesn't reconnect without restarting the computer. My computer is a Dell laptop pc with Intel core i5 processor. I suspect that maybe my LAN card has worn out and it needs to be replaced. Although, I have been told by some computer technicians to not to do so. But they weren't able to give me any solutions. So here are my questions:

Ok, I have 5 computers on a home network, 4 Windows XP and one Redhat Linux Fedora Core 4. About a month ago, one of the windows boxes suddenly went from about 550Kb/s download to 100Kb/s download from various newsgroups. Also, when trying to pull AND push files to that same box, it is a very slow file transfer.

I didn't load any new software in that time and I waited so long because at the time, the newsgroup server that I am using reported problems associated with Hurricane Rita. This of course doesn't explain the network speed.

I've run speed tests on all the other computers, and they all report download speeds of about 550Kb/s and upload speeds of about 45Kb/s except the one, and it has download speeds of about 100Kb/s and upload speeds the same, about 45Kb/s.

After I noticed the speed reduction, I loaded a firewall, ** Protowall ** and I downloaded the latest beta of Microsoft Anti-Spyware and ran it. Also, I have Norton with the latest updates and it reports no problems.

Please, let me know if you need more info or if someone had any general tips to try. I am about at the end of my rope and reformatting looks like the only other option to me.


Mike in Ohio

Edit: Forgot to say, I went to 3 differnt speed testing web sites, and they all report the download speed the same on that one box, about 100Kb/s and the others are around 500Kb/s

A:1 computer on a network suddenly now has slow file transfer on internet and network

Are all the computers wired similarly? All run to the same router/switch?

You should check the cable of the problematic machine, try using ping to the router with 1400 byte packets. Also, boot up some CD Linux or equivalent and see what speeds you get from there - helps to rule out any problems with the operating system.

Hi all,

We have three computers running on our network in my apartment. A few days ago, the connection speeds of my computer have been far worse than usual, and the other two computers have not. I will be watching a stream or trying to load web pages and it's almost as if the connection freezes or drops for several seconds. And this happens constantly. Roughly two or three times a minute. The night before this started happening, Google Chrome told me an extension called Facetheme was trying to install itself. I said no, made sure to uninstall it via add/remove programs, and didn't think much of it. I went to sleep right after this. The next morning is when I began noticing these issues. I dunno if it's related to facetheme, but I thought it was worth a mention. I'm running Windows 7. Any suggestions?

All computers, tablets, phones...are updated but only on the one laptop the internet seems almost like it's cutting in and out or very very slow. I updated my network driver to see if that would help and it didn't. Ran all kinds of diagnostics with no conclusions. Called the internet people who ran a test on my line with no problems detected. I don't know what else to do. They did send me a new modem which imo made the problems worse but I did have the problems before the new modem as well. I completely did a system recovery back to out of box state because I hadn't done it in awhile and thought maybe a fresh os will help but nope still having problems here and there.

My home network has 3 computes operating on a hub or router (I forget the difference) all using the same cable internet line. Using an internet benchmark, my computer seems to be operating at around 47 kb/s whereas both other computers are operating around 470 kb/s. I'm not sure what is wrong. My computer is older (2.1 ghz p4 1gig ram) and the other two computers are new within the last 6 months. No other software was running or downloads in progress when the benchmark was in place. Are there anythings I can check on my computer to make it surf faster? I've already tried using a different cord and a different 'slot' on the router, defragging the hard drive, scanning for spyware and viruses. I've broken my Windows XP disks ( ) so a reinstall is not an option. For what it is worth, one of the other computers in the network is also running XP and the other is running Vista. My computer has been running this way for.. as long as I can remember I just kinda assumed it was normal until I got frustrated with it. Could it be something to do with the network card? Or is it something software related?

EDIT: one more thing to add;

It's a cable line, but peak time is not the only time it is slow - it seems to be slow at all hours of the day.

Hey everyone. I have an issue that's driving me nuts. All of a sudden my internet download speed seems to have dropped. But, when viewing my connection or doing online speed tests, the speeds are actually great. I cannot stream video most of the time and images take longer than ever before to load. Web pages sometimes load fast and other times they will hang for a little while before downloading. If I try to download a file, my download box pops up but takes at least a minute or two to begin showing progress. Its as if im behind a proxy or something. The real kicker is that when im in safe mode with networking my speeds are great. My actually system is working as smooth as ever. Any suggestions here?

A:Recurring Slow internet on only 1 computer in network

If you have a malware problem this thread should be moved to the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum. I don't read HJT logs for malware, but couldn't help seeing some other things that could explain the sluggishness you experience.

I see some evidence of at least 3 anti-malware applications running--McAfee, Norton and Ad-Aware--and one, AVG, that maybe was uninstalled but did not go completely away.

AVG has a Removal Tool, that you should run.

I stopped using Ad-Aware when they added an always-running component, so am not sure with what it does or does not conflict. Suggest that you do not have both it and McAfee Anti-Spyware running at the same time.

If McAfee or Norton is more than anti-spyware and anti-virus, respectively, do not have them both running at the same time. Both McAfee and Symantec have Removal Tools that should be used after any uninstall.

Google Toolbar, and any other toolbar addition, sometimes causes networking isssues, so I suggest you uninstall that until your issue gets solved.

My suggestion is to clean up (use the Removal Tools) all the above and (at least temporarily) rely on your router and the Windows firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials. After your issue is cleared you can then revert to the security applications that you prefer.

OTOH, at any time you can pursue the malware angle by clicking on Report and requesting that this thread be moved to Virus & Other Malware Removal.

Hello folks. I looked through a bunch of threads on the forums but none of the solutions provided in any of them seemed to solve my problem.

Hi there,

I'm having trouble with one computer on a wireless network. The network has three computers on it, and runs at 11Mbps because one is a 'b' device. All the rest are 'g' devices. The router is a Billion broadband modem/router, and the problem wireless card is made by Minitar.

One computer was running very slow and could not access the internet, so I decided to format and re install XP rather than look for malware or other problems. Now the overall computer speed is better, but internet speed is very slow... so slow that when checking email or browsing, the connection times out before anything downloads.

I'm not sure what's wrong, because both other computers on the network run perfectly and internet speed is great. I have re installed drivers for the wireless card, downloaded the latest updates, tried using Windows to manage the connection, tried using the Minitar software to manage it, scanned for malware, checked the firewall settings... and still no solution. Even more strangely, the wireless signal is 'Excellent' and says 11Mbps.

Does anyone have any idea what I could do?

When i troubleshoot the problem I always find a pc that is shutdown  and connected to network that is slowing down the network. After i power on the computer the network speed problem is resolved. Is there a bios option that is affecting the network. The problem  appears on different hp compaq pc that are power off in different locations of the network.Thank you.

Hello all,

I have a problem with my home network and I can`t figure out where the problem is.
Hope you can help.

I have a NAS with big files on it because of this I want to have a fast intern network.
So I bought a gigabit switch (Linksys SE2500), Put this between my computer (motherboard ASUS X79 Deluxe, using the intel port) and my NAS (Iomega ix2-200) all the devices support gigabit speed.
After this it is connected to a HUAWEI HG655d Router/Modem 10-100MBit/sec

If I am correct in this setup it would not use the HUAWEI, as I can connect directly to the NAS trough the switch.

But now I try to get a file from the NAS to the computer and it downloads at 10 Mbit/sec.

How is this possible what am I doing wrong to get it this slow....
I would expect a speed that is 100x faster, or at least 10x faster.

Added a few screenshots of what I have tested and seen.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Slow network speed

I know this may sound like something simple; but; have you tried something as easy as unplugging the power plug(s) to the associated devices and rebooting them to get them to "reset". If not I would go ahead and try that simple idea first. Sometimes just resetting them will get them to reconnect at the proper speed. If not; I would check the adapter properties for the proper settings. I cant tell you specifically what those settings would be since I havent had experience with a lot of networks per say but what i mentioned so far is worth a shot.

I am connected to my university nerwork. The connecton was fine until about two weeks back when it started acting strange. The network couldn connect, other times it couldn recover an IP address. There were time when the status was enabled yes i couldn surf the web. I ran an antivirus and found that i had a virus which through this forum got it right. The virus was called Trojan Downloader and it interfered with the connecton. Now the internet is working fine but when i try to download movies or files it transfers at a very slow rate mostly 10 kbps. However the network speed is 10 Mbps. I connected my friends laptop onto my newwork hub and found that his was working absolutely fine. Please tell me what can i do increase the bandwith and tranfer at a higher speed. Would be highly obliged.

Let's see if it's a Winsock problem. Download WinsockFix and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it.

Hello everyone. I have a new PC running Vista home premium 64bit. I'm having problems transferring data across the network from this PC to a Netgear Ready NAS.

Other PC's on my network are fine, but the Vista machine starts the upload at around 50k and then the speed drops to about 10k before it gives up altogether.

The Vista PC is connected by cable to a Belkin Vision router with a gigabit switch. This is then connected by cable to the NAS. All other computers are wireless. The vista machine has a Nvida 10/100/1000 card, I also tried a Belkin USB wireless adapter.

I have tried the following without success -
uninstalling McAfee antivirus
turning off the windows firewall
disabling auto tuning in networking
installing a wireless network card to see if it's a problem with my network card
swapping my router for a different model
changing various drivers

None of this makes any difference.

As other computers work fine I am presuming my network is fine and the problem is with the Vista machine.

Ever since I built my new PC last year, I've had terrible transfer speeds between it and my laptop.

Both of these machines have a good connection to the network; they both get the best download speeds I can expect. (The laptop uses wi-fi and the PC is wired.) But when I try to transfer files between them over the network, I'm lucky to get 15 k per second.

But it is just between these two computers. I have my old Windows XP computer on the network, and I can transfer files across it all full speed. With large files it actually becomes faster to turn on my old PC, transfer files to it, and then copy the files over from it, rather than directly transfer anything between the new PC and the laptop. So this isn't a problem with the actual network, but something in the network settings on these computers.

The laptop runs Windows 7 and the new PC runs Windows 7 64-bit.

Typically I am on the laptop dropping files to/from the PC, because I have my D drive shared on the PC.

I looked at my share settings on my PC, but I didn't see anything that sounded to me like it could be causing this. Networking isn't my forte.

Have you tried using Ethernet to Router to Ethernet transfer to see if Wi-Fi is the problem?

Hello, I'm running a very new gaming pc while my family uses a rather old PC bogged down with useless programs and such.

Well I have them connected through a D-Link router (its a good router). My internet has been very fast, or as fast as I expect with a 500kb/s download speed.

My brother says that whenever I start using my PC his internet slows down. Mine has never slowed down, yet he says his always slows down. Is this true or is he just imagining it?

The person at Future Shop (pretty sure Canadian version of Best Buy or maybe not w/e) said that the router rotates the connection so fast that you can't notice the difference, though I don't really trust someone from there I believed it.

Thank you.

I have recently purchased an ASUS q500a with Win8 (not the pro edition). For the first few days I noticed that my internet speed was very slow, and was dropping in and out when I was on Skype or using an IRC channel. I thought it was bad weather or something effecting the connection.

Then I noticed that the speed was just fine on all the other machines in my house. I've heard that Win8 had slower browser loading times but this is ridiculous.

My connection is at 54Mbps (not MBps), but my WiFi connection says that I'm receiving and sending 0 kbps! When I open the resource monitor, it says that my browser windows are sending and receiving only 1 kbps. The graph for my WiFi just shows nothing, with the occasional (and I do stress that) jump from 8 Mbps to over 400 kbps, but only for a brief moment.

I've went to speedtest.net and it says my PING is about 85, my download speed is 1.45 MBps (fastest available in my area), and my upload speed is something like .18 MBps.

I don't understand what the problem is. Running diagnostics and troubleshooting my connection shows nothing is wrong. Sometimes pages load just fine even though it still says I'm sending/receiving 0 kbps.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but I'm becoming extremely frustrated, especially considering this is a brand new machine (less than 2 weeks old) and is being outdone by an old, cheap Wal*Mart desktop!!

Can you please help me?

A:Extremely Slow Network Speed

Lets take a peek at your network environment:


Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.


Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.


with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL and press enter.

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

Hi All,

Here is my problem. In this case, I am trying to transfer pictures from one of my XP systems to my Windows 7 Home Premium system over my wired network. Between the XP systems, things run fairly quick. But not with 7 involved. When I go to transfer the 47 pictures that I want, it tells me that it will take 18 minutes. And this is for only 66.7MB of data. Tell me this can get better. Being new to 7, I have no idea where to look for the problem. I tried searching Microsoft's site and the help files on my system. I just can't find a solution.

Here is some more info, and maybe some you don't need. On the Windows 7 system, I can access all the shared folders on my other systems (all XP SP3). If I go to the network map, my other systems are marked as "The following discovered devices can not be placed in the map.". I don't know if that is a problem or not. The reason I did that is because I was reading through the Microsoft site on file sharing and that was mentioned. It also mentions a program called LLTD, which may be needed on 32-bit XP systems. I tried installing that on my XP system, but it said I didn't need it.

As far as the file transfer, while sitting at my XP system, access is denied when I try to access the shared folder (for my pictures) on Windows 7. Now if I transfer them to the Users/Public/Pictures folder, it will transfer them in just over 5 minutes. Still a little slow, in my opinion, and not where I want them. Why can I trans... Read more

Most likely either the NIC drivers on the Windows 7 machine or the firmware of your router could use an update to work with Windows 7.

There are plenty of very recent driver updates for your board in the link below. The realtek network controller dated 11/09 is probably the one you need.

I have suddenly had a strange problem occur. Everytime I restart my Windows 8.1 desktop my internet connection speed drops from it's normal 50Meg to around 3Meg when running any speedtest programme. The only way to cure this is to uninstall & re-install my network adapters through device manager. All is ok then until my next reboot & then it all happens again. It is the same on both the Ethernet connection & the wireless adapter. I have tried re-installing drivers etc to no avail. Something strange about my network setup. I have also ran various virus scans but nothing showed up.
This suddenly started last Saturday & I cannot see what could of caused it, haven't installed any new programmes or anything.
Any clues please as it is a nuisance keep reinstalling my network adapters every time I reboot.?
All my other devices are ok including a Windows 8.1 laptop.

A:Network Adapters slow speed on restart.

If it is with both. Then we need to look at what is the manufacturer & model of the router. Also make sure that you are not using the Microsoft signed drivers, but the Manufacturer's or chipset drivers.
