Re: NEED HELP with internet connection
Is it just the internet or is all your network traffic really slow from that PC? To check, transfer a large file to or from the slow PC from a normal one - then transfer it between the normal ones and see if there's a noticeable difference.
My guess is that it's all the network traffic and Windows update has screwed with your network card drivers - try rolling them back and see if that fixes the issue. I've seen this in a few cases, Windows thinks it's found better drivers when it's actually found completely different ones that work slowly or not at all. If this is the problem and to prevent it happening in future, check the hardware update section whenever you run windows update. If it shows anything about ethernet drivers, uncheck it and bar that entry from ever appearing again.
