Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM Internet Issues

Windows 7 RTM Internet Issues

Hi there,

I'm using Windows 7 RTM, installed it only yesterday. if I attempt to download anything it takes forever to do anything, yet web pages appear almost instantly. For example I can go to a web page on my own site and try to download a ZIP, it sits there, seemingly waiting for something. If I do the same thing with another computer a Windows 7 RC laptop on my network, the file download starts instantly.

This happens to YouTube aswell as pretty much every site, any ideas what's wrong?

Nick.

maybe it's your firewall or antivirus?

please tell us more about your system, by going to your 'User CP' and filling out your system specs.

Hey Mickey!

I have no idea what that was all about but it's actually working fine again today. I had tried restarting the machine and network adapter separately but it hadn't helped. Another odd thing was that it was reporting 123mb/s download speed at most speed testing sites!

Weird!

But back to normal now (for now) lol

Cheers anyway.

Nick.
