FIX: Windows Vista – Slow Internet Download/Connection Speeds
Ever noticed how your Windows Vista’s download speed is slower than your Windows XP’s download speed? This most likely will occur if you have a RealTek Network Card installed on your computer. The reason why you have slow download speeds is because at the moment, there is a Vista driver that is out that is actually pointing to the date of 6-21-2006 when it should really be 1-26-2007. So that pretty much sums up why your speeds have dropped dramatically. You can fix this issue by either Rolling back your driver, updating your driver or reinstalling your network card. I haven’t really tested the last two methods, but the 1st one is a definate.
