Fresh Install Windows 7 SP1, slow internet connection speed - HELP?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new rig. I installed Windows 10 on the M.2 SSD, and installed Windows 7 on a separate SSD. Install went fine, installed all the board drivers and activated this copy of Win7.

The trouble: As soon as I try to download a file, the internet connection speed drops to nothing. I can browse the internet just fine. At first, I thought it was a problem with the Intel network adapter, so I purchased a USB wireless adapter, installed it, and, the problem persists.

I tried running speedtest, and the speed starts out fine, right where it should be, but within 15 seconds or so, it drops to nothing.

Literally, ANY file I try to download starts downloading fine, and then nothing.

I've turned off Windows firewall. I've tried running in safe mode with networking. I've uninstalled my virus protection all together.

I'm at a complete loss....any suggestions would be appreciated.

Everything works fine in Windows 10, btw....I've been looking for differences in the network adapter settings. I'm just not seeing anything.

No. I just installed the drivers.

Right now I'm still browsing around the web, but at the same time, there's a file stuck with no download speed. It'll time out here in a couple mins.

Some kind of software could have some kind of QoS. I know AMD cards have it in the drivers package. It's called Amd Quick Stream technology. Maybe that's it?

I have an NVIDIA GPU, so it's nothing from AMD.

I haven't installed anything but the motherboard drivers, the driver for the USB wireless, and the NVIDIA drivers for the GTX 1080.

So everything is fine in Windows 10, and in Windows 7 you experience download speed drop?

Yes, exactly. Doing a speedtest, the speed starts out great, right where it should be, but within just a few seconds, drops to nothing. File downloads act the same way. Start out great, then drop to nothing.

I tested youtube last night. A video on youtube will buffer for a few seconds, then sit and do nothing for a few more, then take off again...rinse / repeat. Seeing this, I decided to play around with the file download. I would start the download, and when it stopped, I'd pause it, let it sit there for about 30 seconds, and then continue the download, and it'd take off and go again for a few seconds. Obviously, that's not an answer, it's a band-aid, but.......

I'm just at an absolute loss as to what may be causing it. It absolutely has to be Windows 7 related.

Nope, it's a good copy. One I bought a few years ago from NewEgg.
