Windows 7: New motherboard - Slow network running gigabyte but works at 100mb

New motherboard - Slow network running gigabyte but works at 100mb

Hello,

I had the unfortunate incident having my PSU fail and frying my motherboard, so i went and got a new motherboard and some new ram since this new motherboard supported DDR3.

I had it done at the shop, so everything seems to work out fine but i noticed a problem with the network card.
Network file copying to and from my computer was running at 256-512kbs.
Other users could copy fine in the network, we all use Windows 7.

My setup is a gigabyte switch, which is connected to a 100mb router who also has wireless, however all the copying i was doing was over the wired network on the switch.
Every time i would plug into the switch, i was connected at 1gb, so i went and chanced the adepter settings to use 100mb full duplex and the transfer rate was fixed, running at that speed.

Im wondering if the on-board network adepter is broken? I have also tried updating the driver from the motherboard manufacturer, aswell as tried another ethernet cable.

Or even perhaps there is some sort of conflict with the old motherboard?

My old motherboard was,
GA-P35-DS3

The new motherboard is,
GA-P41T-DS3 rev1.3

Greatly appreciate any help or suggestions.
