Internet slow after installing 7 Ultimate

I recently installed 7 Ultimate 32bit yesterday and the internet speed has dropped down from 160KBs to 50KBs (crap speeds cause in Australia...)
The computer is connected using WIFI and is using a network card (D-Link DWA 510)
I tried reinstalling the program and drivers and it still wont budge.
Previous OS was Vista and the internet was flawless.

You could probably install the latest firmware or 3rd party one to have many more choices.

But for now, try setting the g & b to g only instead. Then reboot router.

Reboot the other computer. It may also have a b adapter which can't work with the router setting (unlikely). It probably just needs to pull an ip address from DHCP.

In the case it is b, it's very much advised to get a new adapter for that machine. b is so slow.

It is a wireless g adaptor. But it was working fine before I put Windows 7 on the computer.... this is really weird.
