Win 7 - Very slow internet

Hi all,
Before i installed windows 7 my internet speed was 2mb/s ( downloading at avg. 250kb/s ) but after i installed it speed became only 13-50kb/s and later ( now ) it's downloading at 3kb-10... i didn't installed new programs before it became to 3-10...

Information:
adapter
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
windows 7 Professional 32 bit version
Avast antivirus ( maybe will be usefull info.. )

what i tried:
in safe mode it's still slow
installing new network drivers - no effect
was searching these forums for help and disabled 2 services which i found on solution ( now forgot it's name ) but still no effect

Please help someone...

Hi and welcome

your english is fine. I would bet you are using "homegroup" as your networking protocol. Homegroup has been shown to have problems on some computer networks. you can verify if that is the problem by creating a new network connection and using "workgroup" model.

Let us know if you need help

If i'm using "homegroup" it should be shown at control panel>network and internet>homegroup or not?
if yes there writes "this computer can't connect to a homegroup"
if not please give me a link with tutorial how to change it to "workgroup" or just tell that cuz i'm using win 7 not very long time and yet don't know how to do it...

What is your network setup? do you have more than one computer on the network? do you have a router? etc

Network setup? if i understand the question it's public network i think.
I have only 1 computer on the network.
Sure i have it. if you need the model of it well i don't know exactly model, but on it write edimax WDS or something like that. I thought there will be exact model, but i was wrong.

Since you arent in a homegroup there is one thing you can check. In networl control panel>adaper setting>makeu sure IPv6 is unchecked

you need to give me more details. go to a speedtest site and have your speed measured. use this one if you can Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

then type cmd in search>then ipconfig /all

use the build in snipping tool (type snipping in search) to make a screenshot and upload it.
