Windows 7: Slow download speed and nearly impossible video streaming

17 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Those "ratings averages" are very misleading. If you actually read the reviews on Newegg, you'll see there is a bad (1 star) review on almost every page of 10, and the complaints are pretty much all the same problem you are having. At the very least, they have serious quality control issues, which means you could end up with another lemon. I would advise to skip that card and get something better, unless you just have the time to fiddle around with it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

That's exactly what I ended up doing. I shelled out a few more bucks for a (hopefully) better card. Installed it, and everything's as it should be. If you're curious, it's a Zonet ZEW1642D, and it works like a charm. Thanks for all your help.
