On Thursday I decided I was going to do a clean install of windows 7. I initially had windows home, but installed windows 7 pro this time.
I created a backup on my external and proceeded to do a clean install.
When the install was finished. I installed the motherboard drivers, then the video card drivers.
The motherboard drivers had a disk to install a few things on the disk including:
intel chipset driver
management engine interface
jmicron jmb36x controll driver
marvell sata 6G ahci Driver
Intel LAN driver
Asus Bluetooth driver
I went down the list and installed each of the items.
When this was all down, windows update started to update... at an extremely slow rate.
Before the clean install my internet was working fine but not its beyond slow. It took over an hour to download 153mb of updates. It takes minutes to load a page (such as this one).
I should mention that I am using a hard-wire connection, not a wireless one.
My specs are
Board - asus P8z68V pro
Processor - intel core i7-2600k
the network adapter is a intel 82579V gigabit network connection (on the board).
I tried to un-install the network adapter and re-install to no avail.
Has anyone experienced slow internet after a clean install?
Any ideas what I should do? I figured it was just being slow internet that happens once in a blue moon, but 2 days with the same connection is getting frustrating.
