Download speeds using ethernet in Win 7 64 bit sp1 has slowed to a cra

Hi folks, I don't know why but any thing I try to download from any site is dreadfully slow, I am convinced it is a setting somewhere . Event viewer showed I am having problems with showing an IP Address or maybe something with my homegroup or workgroup but I am not sure.

I have a small apartment and nobody's around , I have just an Ethernet cable providing net access through broadband , no one else is sharing or anything.

I don't know what I should have my settings at

Thank you in advance

Can you post screen prints of the Event Viewer errors you see?
Seeing the errors could help someone here give you better help and suggestions.

I had a problem where downloads slowed to a crawl, but it was only for MS Updates (patch Tuesday).
In Device Manager I uninstalled the Network Adapter and drivers.
I rebooted and Windows reinstalled the Network Adapter.
That fixed the issue I had.

Ethernet cable speeds
We have a bunch of ethernet cables, I have no clue how old. But do they have a speed limit, or is that based on the network card? They are less than 10 years old I know that, so if I upgrade the network card in our computer from 100 to 1Gb ethernet card, will the chord matter or do I need a new...
