yes we arent capped..we have unlimited download. everyone else in the family has perfectly working internet its not slow or stopping or anything.
when i put in the new card for windows 7, i think 7 had the drivers
bundled cos it worked straight away.
when i swapped the card it was the same model and everything, but dad had used the card before and there wasnt any problems.
as for the rest, there isnt a problem with it connecting to the internet its just that it cant keep a connection for more then about 40 seconds. pages take ages to load and youtube vids only load about a minute.
when i was running windows XP i had no problems with the internet. it worked fine. The new card however doesnt work with windows XP.
i dont think its a browser problem as steam does it too when im downloading the games.
iv put it down to it being windows 7 and/or the network card not being fully compatible with my motherboard.
im currently running PC Tools Firewall Plus which i installed about 3 weeks after i installed 7.
EDIT: im sure this isnt a net problem but more of a problem with windows itself, but since i changed to 7 iv noticed everything seems to be crashing when i do something :S its rather annoying. Steam has been crashing spontaneously and the games through steam have been doing the same. Also the UDK has been crashing my computer D: .
