Slow internet on LAN for just one PC

I have 2 PC's and 2 laptops on my home LAN. Both PC's use cat5's and the laptops are wireless. The problem is, my PC gets slower speeds than the rest.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. My motherboard is an Asus Maximus VI Hero and I'm using the on-board Intel I217V port. I also have the latest drivers for it.

Currently, speed tests on everything else shows 60Mbps, yet my PC is showing 30Mbps. It's not the cable, as if I plug that into my laptop, it will show the full speed. I keep my PC in good working order, so it has an up-to-date antivirus, firewall etc and I do regular scans. I've also tried disabling BitDefender to see if that was the cause and that didn't help.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is this something that has just started happening or is it a long running issue. If it is something that just started happening, can you think of anything that happened at the time?

Also, are you using any of the BIOS features for LAN improvement, and if you are, try disabling them as they could be causing your problem.

Depends- when is it exactly slow? is it while surfing the internet, or when running progrmas? either way, you can make it go faster. If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs(for example- avast anti virus or spybot). If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows. if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner..Good Registry Cleaner will improve your computer and Internet performance dramatically! Do all these and Perform speed here once it will sounds better ...
