Download speed halved

Hello all of the windows 7 forums ^^ I am experiencing a problem that i cant seem to resolve with windows 7. Back in vista, i had an average download speed of 150-180 kps but now im lucky to get 80 kps on 7? Is there something wierd? I had updated fully on windows update.
Information:
Ethernet connection
At&t ISP
Acer Aspire x1300


If you need more information let me know. Thanks for taking the time to read this and any help is appreciated.

P.S. how come my download speed is so low even in Vista when speed test said .74 mps?

Maybe something else on your pc or entire network is using bandwidth as you do the test.

Open a command prompt and type

netstat -abo

then hit enter to see what's going on. Or also use Wireshark.

When I had a problem similar to your's, it wasn't anything wrong with my computer, my ISP (Cox Cable) had downgraded my service, and I ended up having to pay more for what I originally had.

For some reason programs and files are taking a very long time to download (about 30 kbps), but youtube plays fine, I can go to any website and troubleshooting shows nothing wrong. I went to speedtest.net and I'm averaging about 12 mbps so files should be downloading fast. At this point I'm...
