Very slow bandwidth

Hello everyone, i am new on this forum and i have one problem than i cant resolve. I had check many time in the others forums but nothing result.

So my problem is the following :

Since 2 months i constated than my bandwidth is very slow on windows 7 and i dont know from where it comes.

I have disable firewall, antivirus, reset the netsh cfg of my network card, formating my disk and reinstalled windows 7. i have tried everything...

When i download something on my windows 7 the rate is about from 60 kbps.. I take my mac, downloading the same link, frome the same interface of my router and with the same cable .. and the rate is about 7 Mbps .. SO what is wrong with windows 7.

And when i done i speedtest : it report my real rate : 98 Mbps in dowload and 60 Mbps in upload.

I thought about an update from windows which block some rate but i dont think so.

Can someone helps me please, it's really frustrating
Sorry for my english i am french and tried to explain this as clear as possible.

Regards,

Have you tried to update the firmware on your router? You didn't list that so I wasn't sure.

Just because your mac works with this router does not mean Windows 7 will. Windows 7 requires firmware updates on most every router in order to work properly. If you havn't updated the firmware on your router then you certainly havn't tried everything.

Take no notice of speedtest.net as for some strange reason it has started reporting dowload speeds of 100Mbs+?
