Fresh built PC slow download speeds

So i just built my new PC and got it all booted up and Win7 ultimate 64 installed.

My old desktop would download @ my max bandwidth 99% of the time for everything (roughly 700 kb/s) where as this one is hitting about 130max and stopping....

Any ideas?

My Asrock extreme 3 Mobo came with Xfast LAN and ethernet controller and such could that have anything to do with it?

Any help or direction to where this may be better answered is much appreciated.

  1. Honestly, regardless of if something is wrong in your new PC, your speed is very slow. I mean extremely slow.
  2. What you mean? the 700kb/sec is slow? I live in the boonies i don't have the luxury of cable internet. I just don't like how i lost like 3/4 of my dload speed on this thing.

    Well I'm not really sure how exactly you lost connection speed. Usually your speed is a bit faster the 1st time you do a test. At least my computer was.

    Do your speeds ever fluctuate? Like at 12:00 PM it's 650 kb/s but at 7:00 pm it's 725 kb/s? If so, at the moment you may just be in high traffic.
  4. I don't even get 100 kb/s :(
  5. Seems Xfast LAN from asrock mobo was causing it i just removed it and literally watched my downloads kick back up to 650-700... maybe i didnt have it configured properly or something... meh dont need it anyways. thx guys
  6. Wow that's good. Whoever would have know it was XFast LAN causing the problem...
  7. Yeh i never used it before but now that its gone problem solved it seems. Myself i think i just may not have configured it properly so it was limiting bandwidth in places so i could use it in other places.

    EI: less used on dloading so i can still browse or watch a youtube vid or something.

    Regardless i may look back into it later cause it is nice to be able to prioritize how your connection is being used. once i learn more about it.
