Windows 7: Internet Problem (DL 90 Mbit/s - UL 'only' ~10 Mbit/s)

Internet Problem (DL 90 Mbit/s - UL 'only' ~10 Mbit/s)


I've been running Windows 7 since the beta and haven't had any problems at all. However, recently I decided to download the RC from Microsoft and install it. I did a clean install instead of upgrading.

It came to my attention quite fast that something wasn't right in the RC. I would very often get DNS query problems, and my upload speed was terrible! I have a 100/100 Mbit/s connection, and in the beta I could max it out quite easy with e.g. torrents. With the RC, I could download really fast but my upload was stuck around 10 Mbit/s.

Since then I have tried out different builds since the RC without any results. Every build seem to have the same problem - whatever it could be.

So, where should I begin? What could be wrong?

Thanks in advance!

It's not the builds or problems with them. Your ISP has capped your upload. The issue is with them.

The connection is not capped. I have unlimited bandwidth (before the RC I would upload several terabytes each week without any problems). Not to mention that my other computers in the house is working correctly. I only have a switch, so it's not a router problem or something like that either.

I've pretty much given up now. I'll probably just install XP again. Thanks anyway.
