Hi hanoh welcome to Sevenforums.

If the network connection is working, then it's unlikely it's a driver issue. Unfortunately speed problems are notoriously difficult to pin down, but lets give it a shot.

Firstly, I see you have filled out your system specs, so well done you However you seem to have omitted your network adapter. If you can tell us what it is (make and model) we may be able to find you some updated drivers, the one's that come with the adapter are very rarely up to date.

Oh dear, an unbranded card. Makes life considerably more difficult as it may be hard to track down drivers for it.

Try downloading Speccy: Speccy - Download and see if it can give you any more info about the card, namely who made the chipset. I would almost put money on it being Gigabyte, Realtek or Ralink but wouldn't like to say for definite.

However, you say you can download at 3Mb/s but browsing is slow, this to me actually suggests that it may be a problem with your Internet rather than the card, if it was the card I would expect all network usage to have a problem. Do you have another computer? If so is it also experiencing problems? Or is it just this one machine.

Just for future reference: If you have something to add, can you use the Edit button rather than making a new post? It's just easier for us to read it.

Ok, let me get this straight, this is the situation as I understand it, please correct me if I am wrong.

You have used several network cards on this machine, and all are experiencing the same issue with browsing speeds. In addition you have 2 laptops which connect wirelessly which can browse absolutely fine, the issue is specifically with this one machine.

Assuming the above is correct, here are a couple more questions and suggestions for you:
What brand of card are the other ones? Are they all unbranded cards?
Have you tried changing LAN port on your Router?
What happens if you connect the laptops via ethernet cable and turn off the wireless? Are they still unaffected?

Lastly, I have had a little bit of an idea.
Open an elevated command prompt (search for cmd in start menu>right click>open as administrator)
type "ipconfig /all" (no quotes) and press enter.
Find your network card, and make a note of the IP address under "Default Gateway" to obtain your Router's IP address (if you don't already know it)
type "ping <router's IP address>" (no quotes or <>'s)
post back the results.
