New Laptop Windows 7 64bit but internet connection very slow.

I bought a new Laptop 2 week ago. It works well, but internet connection ist very slow. I use cable internet speed 25Mbit/s, normal with my old Laptop (Window xp) I can DL with speeds ca.1 Mbit/s but with this new ca. 15 kbit/s (same file). too much different!!!
I tried to find solutions. But I do not dare to try so much,because I am not good with computer. If anyone know, how to troubleshoot this problem, please tell me . Thanks

P.S. Sorry,if my English is't really good.

If you are connecting the win 7 machine via "homegroup" it has been known to have problems on certain systems.

To test you can crate a new connection using the "workgroup" model instead.


Let us know if that doesnt help

I'm having the same problem. There are dozens of posts about this all over the internet, but none of the solutions are working.

This Windows 7 computer was supposed to be Microsoft redeeming themselves after my atrocious Vista experience. Not to be bitter or dramatic, but if there isn't a solid fix for this then it may finally be time to go to Mac

Any solutions at all? I don't actually want to have to go get a Mac, but Windows shit on me with Vista and is shitting on me with 7, I don't know what else to do
