Windows 7: Awful Connection on Cold Boot

21 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Awful Connection on Cold Boot

For some reason, and I don't really know if this is recent or not, as it just seems to be, but when I boot my computer from cold (in otherwords, turn it on vs waking it up), my internet connection speed is awful. After a Restart, my Internet connection is fine.

Why is this?

This shouldn't make a difference, but I have my computer set up for WOL, I just tap a button on my Phone and it turns my computer on. I've experienced this problem both when using WOL and also pressing the ON button on my computer.

Hi there,

Is this a wired or wireless issue? Is it possible to try both?

Please try the following recommendations:
- Do a Clean boot by following this guide.

- Update your Ethernet driver to the latest.
