The LAN drivers from gigabyte are definitely the better choice.
You might try booting into Safe Mode with Networking and retry your speed test.
Booted into safe mode with networking and tried downloading different things, and it produced the same result as if I was not in safe mode, same speed 6kbs ish and then slows down further and stops.

Could you also check the colour of the Connection Speed LED next to the Ethernet LAN port on the back of the motherboard?

The manual page 21 doesn't give red as a valid colour. It's the LED to the left of the Ethernet port. The manual doesn't give a colour for the right hand Activity LED.

That's the only light I can see near the ethernet port, beyond that there isn't any other lights.
