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
No, this is a PCI Express x1 slot. Different slot. Short.
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?
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.
Well in the meantime ill keep looking for answers. thanks though.
