Windows 7: Slow internet speed.

Slow internet speed.

I installed windows 7 a while ago, because i hated Vista.
I had some problems connecting, but i fixed those.
The only problem now, is that my internet is pretty slow.
I used to download my games from Steam with 2 Mbps, which is now 480kbps.
Youtube videos actaully take time to buffer, they didnt do that on my previous pc, which was a piece of junk compared to this one.
If you need any info on my pc, ask me.
Does anyone know how to solve this?

Do you know for certain that it's not a problem with your ISP?

You would mostly likely have to have another computer in your house, connected to the same connection where speeds were also an issue? Multiple machines with the same problem would indicate a possible ISP problem. And if that is the case, you would have to call the ISP to troubleshoot and get the problem resolved.

You might want to just check a speed test site like Speakeasy Speed Test and see if you are getting approx what you are supposed to get. My inet connection is 15mbit/s and I usually get around 13.5...which to me is just fine.

Sounds ironic, bit the connection gets re-initialised while loading the page. Can`t visit it.

EDIT:
I can now, but that page is prettty useless.

You didn't try the troubleshooter to pinpoint issues? Or it came back without an error?
