I just built my computer last night, which was the first time that I have ever built one. I've been trying to download drivers and software all day, but for some reason they won't download any faster than about 110KB/s. I tested my internet speed and I get about 20mb/s Down and about 5 UP. I've tried different web browsers, and still downloading off of any website is under 150KB/s. Is there a driver or something I should install that I probably haven't? I'm wired CAT6 BTW. I remember downloading a lot faster on my old computer. I also tried restarting my PC and no effect.

Thanks!

Even if you had no ethernet driver installed I would assume you would still get your 20mbps, it could be the web site youre downloading from

Like I said, I've tried downloading a bunch of things from different websites. All under 150Kb/s and I even tried different browsers and tried saving them to different hard-drives and SSDs.

And my avg. Download right now is 18.25 and Upload is 3.6

No matter how fast your bandwidth is, you will be limited by the bandwidth of whoever is hosting the files.

Additionally, you may have some QoS settings on your router.

Try different Ethernet cables.

I also noticed that there were 2 different Lan drivers on 1-28-2013

Version 5.790&7.65&8.7 - older
Version 5.796&7.65&8.7 - newer
Install latest driver with USB Flash drive, maybe another computer available so download is faster.

The Lan update uses a windows installer package, so just run.

"Even if you had no ethernet driver installed"

Do not rule out anything...
Sorry about missed multiple browsers that you tried

Go to techpower.com up and DL Futuremark 2013. It should max out your speed.

Or DL Ubuntu using torrent, it will max your speed as well.

If you still getting slow speeds, then its possible you hit your DL limit with your ISP thus they are throttling you.

Also run this command in CMD as admin, then reboot. netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled

What are some of the sites you're trying to download from?

It all depends on the server that's serving the content. Speed is bidirectional, just because you get a good download speed from one server does not mean you'll be able to download at that speed on every server.
