New build causing slow internet connection?

So after I got my stuff all installed and things are working well, I hooked up my router to the new computer and the connection is significantly slower that it was before. Any ideas?

  1. Sure lots of ideas.

    - You are downloading updates in the background.
    - You don't have the latest driver yet.
    - Your connection type changed.
    - Your Ethernet cable is damaged.
    - Your old computer was prioritized in the router settings.

    how do I get the new one prioritized in the router settings?
  3. Are you hooked into the router with a cable or with a wireless card or adapter?
  4. cable
  5. It depends on the router. Is this the only computer connected to it?
  6. Never mind, someone plugged a phone in without plugging into a filter first.
