Windows 7: slow download speeds in all windows 7 builds

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.

Windows 7 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.

Running Win 7 7600 x64

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!
