Recently my ethernet speed has been very slow. I checked the details of the local area connection, and the speed says 10.0 Mbps. However, this number used to be about 62.0 Mbps. Also on speedtest.net, my results come out at around 9.5 Mbps, with upload speed of 6 Mbps, which I used to get, but before, my download speed would be around 58-60 Mbps. Does anybody know what the problem could be? Help would be much appreciated.

Sounds like your nic has dropped out of 100mb mode and down to 10 (which is the next lower speed)
A complete power shutdown, waiting a few minutes, and then booting back up typically resolves this.
