Windows 7: Win 7 internet connection problems!!

Win 7 internet connection problems!!

Hi there,

I'm having big problems with my connection and have looked for 3 weeks now and tried all the fixes. Still got this problem with either my adaptor or something!! Someone please help me!!
Iíve installed win 7 64 bit on a formatted hard drive as my only operating system, That is all Iíve done. I can connect to the internet but only get a web page up about 5% of the time. I have tried to ping Google and get a 50 to 75% packet loss. I've looked at the bytes sent and received and I seem to be sending more than receiving!! my router connectivity lights are flashing all the time. I've tried resetting Winsock, ip renew/release, updating drivers and using a fixed ip address. My knowledge is limited about these things and Iíve gone as far as i can with out some help! My network adapter is on an abit quad gt board and i'm using a netgear router. I've also changed my lead to rule this out!! I have 2 other pc's at home, 1 running vista, connects fine and 1 running win 7 (laptop) and this runs fine!!
Please can someone help its driving me mad!!

Many thanks in advanced,

Forgot to say that I have also tried turned all firewalls off as well!!

Have you tried to disable ipv6?
Have you updated your routers firmware?

Open your task manager,
Click performance tab,
open resource monitor.
Click network.
Anything using your network will list there, including amounts of information sent and received.

That may help you some.

Just out of curiosity, do you have home group disabled?

Just for the protocol... You are connecting the pc via cable or wireless ? And did you tried to change the cables??? Try using this pc with other cable.... What about ping losses to the router??? Not google, but your router or any other pc in your local network...

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

If you want help you need to fill out your system specs and list all the hardware being used to access the internet. List the full router model and version number also please.

It's a fairly easy process to check and see if the hardware is compatible with Windows 7.

It's a cable connection. I've tried a new cable and one from a working pc and still no joy! I've just tried pinging my router (a netgear DG834G v5) a few times and i'm losing 25 to 50% of the packets!! the network adaptor on my motherboard (abit quadGT) is a realtek PCI GBE Family controller. I've managed to get my home page working once, it just loaded up!! i tried to go further and it just told me page cannot be displayed. I'm recieving about the same bytes as i'm sending ! it should be more than that!! this is driving me mad now!!
