Hey everyone,

So, recently built a new gaming PC, with (unfortunately) windows 8.1.

I have been experiencing painfully slow internet with both wired and wireless connections.

Have updated drivers, changed adapter settings, on my wireless card (ASUS PCE-N53 Wireless-N PCI Express Adapter)

the speed on www.speedtest.net can jump from around 0.60Mbps to a maximum to to about 1.70Mbps

other computers on the network get a consistent speed around 6Mbps.

Any help would be so very very much appreciated, as i am on the brink of a complete meltdown.

Try changing the the channel on your router you may be getting co-channel interference, if that fails get your service provider to check it out. I'm with Virgin mine went all over the place speed wise,turned out to be a dodgy cable now get 54-55 Mbps consistently pay for up to 50 Mbps.

Have you checked that Proxy server is unticked in lan settings for the Ethernet connection?

Doesn't sound like a provider problem if other PCs are Ok.

Make sure your router isn't limiting the new machine.
