.. i upgraded my pc from xp to 7 a few days ago and i loved the transfer.. one of the few things i noticed however is that my internet speed has considerably slowed down.. i have a 1mb connection in my office and sometimes just loading my yahoo mail takes a long time ( approx a minute or two).. opening sites would just take too long and lately even downloading files takes forever (downloaded a 3mb file took 30mins).. i dont know if there is something wrong but i used a laptop running on xp on my network and it just runs fine.. the speed is constant.. anyone please give me their ipinion.. thanks!
Are you by chance using "homegroup" for networking in win 7? Homegroup sometimes on mixed networks causes slow downs and disconnects.
You can check it for yourself by setting up a new network connection using workgroup instead. If the problem goes away you can dis-able IPv6, and kill homegroup.
Let us know if you need help with this
