Windows 7: Sluggish Internet

Sluggish Internet

Hey guys. I have recently installed Win7 on a Dell Vostro 420 and it seems to run pretty well, but the Internet seems to be a little sluggish at times. My other machines on the network don't seem to be having this issue. I am on an Ethernet connection and have installed approved network drivers for my Realtek and have tried a few netsh tweaks, but it just seems to come ago. Any tweaks or suggestions that can help?
