Windows 7: Very slow internet speed in Windows 7

Very slow internet speed in Windows 7

Hi guys,

2 Days ago I upgraded my PC and moved from XP to Windows 7 Enterprise x64. Everything was going smooth as butter, untill it was moment to use my internet. When I try to download something I get 50-60kb/s dl speed, 100 at max, while in XP my normal dl speed was around 5mb/s. I've installed all the newest drivers for absolutely everything, changed 3 lan cards, including the integrated on my motherboard, and all do the same stuff. My internet is super slow and I get disconnected every 5 or so minutes. I'm with a broadband (PPPoE) connection. I've heard there is a possibility my motherboard is faulty, because they were some mobos wich have problems with W7. My setup is this:

Asus M4N68T AM3 Motherboard wich on the box claims its "Windows 7 Ready"
AMD Athlon II X2 255 3.1GHz AM3 Dual Core Processor
2x2GB A-Data DDR3 1600G Memory Kit
500GB Hitachi 7K1000.C SATA II HDD
Sapphire HD 5670 512MB GDDR5 Video card
The lan card that I'm using in the moment is TP Link TF-3239DL

So guys if you have some suggestions, please post them. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,
How have you obtained Enterprise?

I had this on ubuntu, it had very slow internet speed and dropped out on heavy internet usage. I am going to guess its the Ethernet card. It may be the fact your on enterprise.

I would be careful saying you have a business copy of Windows on forums like these.

'Enterprise software, also known as enterprise application software (EAS), is software used in organizations, such as in a business or government,[1] as opposed to software chosen by individuals' Wikipedia

I got the trial version from a friend, but I'm not really happy with it... I think I'm going to drop it...

Was your XP 64 bit? If so, how much RAM? XP doesn't need as much as Windows 7, 64 bit to run as efficiently.

I was using 32 bit XP with 1GB RAM. I didn't have absolutely no problems with my connection back then.

Why not try home premium? It is what it says.

The Enterprise trial version is only good for 90 days. Enterprise version runs best with 4gb ram or more.
