Windows 7: slow internet with RC

slow internet with RC

So here is my prob.

few days ago I downloaded RC from a tracker(md5 is OK) I installed it, activated with my serial number. The problem is the *VERY* slow internet. I have 2 laptops, on both I wireless internet, dynamic IPs. One has Windows 7 7000, the second I installed the RC and only the second has the problem with the slow internet and this was not before I installed RC. Everything else runs fine. I already checked with antivirus, registry cleaner so on but no better. Can You advice something? Maybe some internet diagnostic tools?

Nah. Windows Update is programmed to download at a speed that does not interfere with usual Internet downloading and browsing. Also, I'm not sure that W7 RC has updates up-to-date.

For myself, I think it's driver related. Try to install the drivers from the manufacturer's website (Vista's drivers) instead of Microsoft's drivers. It can solves many many things.

Same problem

I´ve had the same problem...
The last weekend I installed the W7 and I did all necessary updates. But my Internet is extremelly slow...
I was used to do downloads with transfer rate of 100 kpbs and now my transfer rate gets 5 kpbs on average... reaching a maximum of 10 kpbs...

All my drivers are up-to-date...

Has anybody any idea about what´s happening?

Slow internet
Now, my computer's internet goes fairly fast. However, when my sister turns on hers, and starts to download files, my internet level starts to drop significantly. I, then, start to experience connection, which is annoying. I heard something about limiting bandwidth, however, I can't find that on my...
