Slow internet speed with wired and wireless connection

I recently clean installed windows 7 on an ssd i bought for my custom built computer and after installing all the updates and every driver has even been updated to the latest, I still have slow internet speeds and that's with my ethernet and wirless adapter.

I have google just about everything and can't seem to find how to fix this, but some help would be every appreciated.

Also, I'm not sure which specs and info you need to know for this but just tell me what you need to know and I'll post it in the next reply.

Use this to test your internet speed and see if you are getting what you are paying for. by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

What internet method are you using? (DSL, Cable ect.)

From your specs.

Antivirus none
Browser Chrome
No anti virus is not wise.

Can you tell me how to get to network devices? Or are you talking about network adapters in device manager?

Sorry if I'm sounding dumb

These are the settings on my Intel Ethernet Connection:

Gigabit Master Slave Mode
Interrupt Moderation
Jumbo Packet
Large Send Offload V2 (IPv4)
Large Send Offload V2 (IPv6)
Legacy Switch Compatibility Mode
Log Link State Event
Offloading Options
Performance Options
Priority & VLAN
Receive Side Scaling
Receive Side Scaling Queues
Wait For Link

I also purchased a Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I WiFi adapter and I just unhooked the power cord for it on my motherboard because I thought it might have been the cause for my slow internet speeds.

Here's a screen cap of my Device Manager
