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.
