Windows 7: Verrrrrry Slow Internet Connection - wireless

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Ah, right. Sorry I misunderstood your meaning first time. Still no model number.

Speed 54 Mbps
Network Adapter 2
Model 802.11n Wireless LAN Card
Status Connected
MAC Address 68-A3-C4-BE-8A-33

I was trusting the computer when it said there were no newer drivers. A mistake maybe?
Driver version is dated 11/4/2010 (from device manager. Note that neither the version nor date correspond to anything on the Ralink chart?)

I'll try the clean boot next - is that different that booting in safe mode? I did the safe mode + network and that didn't alter the download speed at all.

I do appreciate you trying to help on this.

Clean boot is a bit more restrictive than Safe Mode with Networking. Worth trying.

For the wireless card, open device manager, expand network adapters then double click on the wireless adapter.
Click on the Details tab then select Hardware Ids from the Property dropdown. In the value field you will see something like this:
If you hold the Ctrl key and click on each one so they are all selected you can then press Ctrl+c to copy the data to the clipboard. Patste in into a reply here. Maybe that will tell me exactly what adapter you have.
