Hey all, i just built a new computer and everything is running fine. My download speed has been really low though. On my laptop that I had before everything is running fine but on the new system he download speed is hovering around 200kb/s as opposed to ~2.5mb/s. Any ideas as to why this could be?

If your mb uses intel Ethernet chipset there a bug with there software that installs with the drivers. Use msconfig and turn off intel software then try your Internet again. If it speeds up remove the intel network software not the istore driver.if it a relteck chipset make sure your running the newest driver from real.

Okay, forgot to mention it in the first post but I'm not hardwired into my internet, I'm using a USB wireless adapter if that makes a difference.

*edit: hardwired into my internet and was still getting super slow download speeds. I'm assuming its my router at this point

Make Sure you installed the newest mb chipset drivers. If your mb uses a third party USB chipset update that driver. On the wifi USB stick find the vendor of the chipset inside and use there newest drivers.
