My roommate and I have built desktop PCs to bring with us to college. Luckily, our room has two internet Ethernet hook-ups in the wall. My computer has a lot of trouble accessing the internet, and has trouble loading things. My roommates computer can load everything on the internet just fine! My laptop loads things over the WiFi faster than my desktop. I have tried connecting to his Ethernet jack, and it was still slow. I tried using his cable (and a couple others) and it would still not load very well. I think this means that the problem is my computer, and some sort of network driver or network hardware or something!
My PC specs are:
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX motherboard,
Intel Core i5-3570k
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 RAM,
Radeon 7870 GPU.
Thank you so much for the help!
