slow download speeds in all windows 7 builds

I have an HP notebook dv4-1365dx. It has 4 gigs of ram,2.0 intel core duo proc. It has Vista Ultimate 32 bit installed on it. My ISP is Optimumonline. My connection speeds are 30 mbps down,5mbps up. I take the OOL speedtest,Speakeasy,and Speedtest.net. I consistantly get 30-32 down and over 5 up on all of these tests. I have had Windows 7 build 7100,build 7229,build 7264 installed on this machine and my download speeds have dropped drastically. I get between 3.5 and 7,but my upload speeds remain over 5. I have all the latest drivers installed and everything else about Windows 7 works great. I just ordered the upgrade to be delivered on OCT. 22nd. Has anyone else experienced a drastic drop in download speeds in 7? I went back to Vista and my speeds are again fine.Can anyone please tell me why Windows 7 is so slow on my machine? Thanks

If all the hardware has remained the same the only thing that has changed is the win 7 driver what nic do you have and are you running 32 bit or 64bit.

I've noticed similar issues. I'm on Build 7100 right now and I'm seeing it too. I've got 20Mbps down/5Mpbs up but browsing on some sites is painful. If I navigate to a random site, sometimes it won't load initially. If I hit refresh and wait for 2 mins, then it'll load. This happens a lot. This was not an issue on XP 64.

Just would like to chime in with my 2 cents and expirances. I have an i7 @ 4GHz, 6GB RAM, Gigabyte Mobo with the Realtek NIC it comes with and actually have better download speeds than on any other machine in my house.

My issue was browser-based, not connection based. I quit using IE8 and am using Firefox with no problems.

I had slow speeds with IE8 and now only use FF 3.5. No more slow speeds!
