Windows 7: Issues with Network(works with half duplex but not with full duplex)

Issues with Network(works with half duplex but not with full duplex)

Hi guys, had an issue several months ago when I bought new PC, (Connection and everything else worked fine on my old pc) however on the new one I couldn't get my connection to work properly until I switched to 100Mbps half duplex. Since it kinda worked fine I left it like that and used it till now.

At that point I had no clue what it did and I didn't really care since it "fixed" my connection, however from what I understood while googling about it is that half duplex only allows one way data transport(only upload or download at the time). I might be completely wrong but that's what I figured.

Now the issue is that every time I try to upload something large my download becomes useless, however full duplex still doesn't work and I don't know how to fix it. Installed all the necessary and up to date drivers but that didn't change anything.

To be more precise, when I switch it to full duplex it reduces(limits) my download speed to only 10Mbps when I should have 50.
