Windows 7: Internet Speed Slow After RC Install

Windows 7 RC 7100
 
 
Please Help... Network Issue

Hi, I have been a BETA tester for windows 7 since the first BETA was released.
Before installing RC V.7100 my speed was fine, Since installing, i have had many connection problems, 1 or 2 connection drops in the past week and Very slow speeds from 40-60KBps. Normally my internet speeds range from 8Mbps-12Mbps and other than my PC, all the other pc's we have in the house running Vista run perfectly fine with full speeds, i testing every PC on speedtest.net and all speeds turn out to be around 10Mbps. But my laptop with windows 7 gives results of around 0.6Mbps. I tried resetting the router but obviously thats not the issue, resetting the wireless adapter, updating drivers, installing updates, rebooting, changing ip addresses, none seem to make a difference, i still get slow speeds. All PC's are wireless, so interference is no problem. What could be the issue?

Thanks

Install the following driver if you haven't already:

Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows Vista*

Other than that, not really much to think of if all your other computers network well.

Does the vista boxes have a hard time finding the win 7 box and win 7 finding vista?
Also in win 7 program manager/networking does the network show the correct speed and when d/l what % usage?

Seems that RC 7100 has internet problems no matter what you do.
My recommendation would be upgrade.

On the network both OS' find eacother, when i transfer files from my windows 7 pc to a vista pc, the file trnsfer rate does remain withing 20-40kbps, if i were to get close to diagnostics i would say it is an issue with windows 7 as file transfers from vista to vista transfer at 60-80MBps.

In the task manager, wireless network link speed shows 18mbps although my router is 108MBps. shouldnt really mke a difference though. and the percentages are at 0 unless i refresh a page or have some network activity, the percentage will increase up to 15%
