On my multi-boot system, Win7 x64 has slow download speeds as shown from SpeedNet.com
I have 2 network adaptors (wired), Intel 82579V, Realtek PCIe GBE, both on my Asus P8Z77-V deluxe mobo.
My COmCast download should be about 25mbs. On the RealTek I get about 9.5mbs, Intel 21mbs, when only one is enabled in the control panel. It I enable both I get 14mbs, (they are not bridged, should they be)
When I boot to Win8, Vista, XP, Linux from the same machine, I get between 25-28.5mbs. And about the same for other computers on my network (wired). So it is not my modem, or router. My win7 drivers are up to date, as is everything else.
Suggestions on how to fix win7?
Thanks

I doubt it is driver related but more related to the quality of components used by manufacturers. Speedtest's are not the greatest way to measure connection speed either since it measures burst speeds (your ISP may have a burst feature that enables faster downloads for a period of seconds).

Just stick with the fastest one :) .
