New motherboard slow internet

So I bought a new motherboard in order to upgrade to a new processor and new RAM obviously, even though the actual performance of my PC has skyrocketed, my internet speed has decreased ALOT. I bought this motherboard about 3 weeks ago so this has been bugging me for some time now, I thought eventually it would go away but its still slow. I have all the drivers and updates installed from the motherboard and Windows 7 but nothing changes.

I have tried two speed testing sites the results are the same

I used to get speeds of: DOWNLOAD: 25 Mbps + UPLOAD: .95 Mbps + PING: hardly over 30

Now most of the times its: DOWNLOAD: 10 Mbps UPLOAD: 0.50 PING: 200 +

Right now its at DOWNLOAD: 3.27 Mbps UPLOAD: 0.32 PING: 219

I have reached speeds of: DOWNLOAD: 0.6 Mbps UPLOAD: 0.10 PING: 700!! +

LOL my iPod touch has the iphone app and it literally goes faster than my PC.

I have already reset my router, made sure nobody is leeching of my network, Ive clean installed Windows 7 x64 twice while owning this motherboard.
This was my computer:

New motherboard (ASUS M4A88T-M):

Processor (AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz):

If anybody can help me I would really appreciate it.

    I don't know this motherboard's network NIC for myself, but it could be a crap one. For 20 oer so you can buy yourself an Intel NIC that goes in a PCI -E slot, and you know you'll have the best you can get.
  2. PCIE? as in where the GPU goes, unfortunately my Radeon is currently occupying that space. :(
  3. No, this is a PCI Express x1 slot. Different slot. Short.
  4. OHH yes the GPU takes up 2.1 PCIE, well do you know if this card will boost the performance of my internet connection or will it just work as its supposed to?
  5. I don't know that it will make a difference. You are not satisfied with your internet speed now, and one of the things that could be holding it back is the current network NIC you are plugged into. So at the very least, this will serve as a way of checking if your integrated nic is performing up to snuff.
  6. Well in the meantime ill keep looking for answers. thanks though.
