Windows 7: No internet through DSL Modem, Slow Snail through Router

No internet through DSL Modem, Slow Snail through Router

Ok so here we go, just built a computer installed Win 7 Home Prem 64 on it.

Booted, loaded drivers, updated drivers w/usb key and laptop.

Slow (4 to 5 kb/s dl) internet speed. Did some messing around, had it at normal speeds after messing around (windows updates installed).

Hooked up to my Siemens 567, will not connect to internet.

Hooked up to my DIR-655 router, will connect at slow speed.

Home is brand new, CAT6 Wired, previous Vista machine worked flawless on this Cat6 jack. Wifi works on laptop just fine. (also vista).

Bought a network card, same situation so that rules out my computer hardware and leaves the OS and Router/Modem.

I am pretty darn good at computers but this is making me lose sleep and is turning me into a bad fiance.

Let's get this solved and then beers for all!

Well...I kind of solved it. Had to select 10mbs full duplex...why 10 though can anyone enlighten me? Could it be a mixture of lots of infrastructure?
