Slow Internet Connection

I have a 10MB internet connection, which has a MOTOROLA cable modem connected to a router Dlink DIR-600, the second desktop computer, there is a loss of transfer rate to download, the standard rate is in 980KB - 1.000KB in second computer, is 400KB on average, believe that this is because the network card that is of gigabit standard, the second computer's motherboard is an ASUS M5A97 with Real Tek 8111E Gigabit LAN Controller 100/1000, on the first computer where internet connection works normal has an ASUS M2N68-AM SE2. Reset the router settings, put the Google Public DNS, I'm considering reinstalling the DRIVER network card to an older version.

By opening pages of browsers is slow. Slow to download games through Steam and Origin.

You are confusing MB and Mb. Internet connections use bps (bits per second), but most software programs use Bps (bytes per second). Due to protocol overhead, the difference is almost 10:1, so you are maxing out your Internet connection.

Thanks for correcting, but this is not the focus of difficulty. But the fixes are worth.
My connection is 10Mbps, I know I have 10% which equals the rate of transfer of 1megabyte. Only the second computer has a slower connection. And I suspect it is the network card ONBOARD.

The focus is not MB or mb, but the difficulty I'm having with the internet connection, and is not normal my connection, the first computer is correct, but the second shows slow, I suspect it is the network card on this computer .

Is there a bug reported in this model of motherboard?

If you are downloading a large file the problem in the second computer could be low memory or a slow hard drive.

I believe it is a bug with the Realtek driver, the connection is slow only on that computer, but can you believe that I did a PING test between the gateway and the network card of the computer and gave a response time was very high and varying, should definitely be the problem on the network card or Driver network.

It might also be as simple as a bad Ethernet cable.
