slow halting internet performance after Windows 7 upgrade

Postby guest » Fri Dec 25, 2009 8:07 pm

I've just upgraded my computer to Windows 7 and internet performance has become unusable. Connection speed will be ok in bursts but will stall. Downloading large files is only possible by repeatedly pausing and restarting the download process, otherwise the application will download a feww hundred kB or maybe a a MB and then process stalls to zero. Web pages fail to load sometimes without hitting refresh a few times, etc. The computer is unusable for internet tasks.

I've installed the latest Realtek RTL8168C driver v 7.006 updated 10/23/2009 from the Realtek web site.

I've disabled all firewalls and antivirus software.

I've got a second computer (WinXP) connected to the same LAN hub which is performing just fine (and I've been using to download driver updates for the Windows 7 computer), so the internet connection is fine.

The computer is a Dell Inspiron 518, is pretty new (less than a year old), and the Windows Compatibility Report produced but the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor reported no problems with the hardware before upgrading to Windows 7. Win7 version is released Home Premium, new out of the box.

Please help, I don't know what else to try.

Thanks!

The "Function Discovery Resource Publication" service publishes this computer and resources attached to this computer so they can be discovered over the network. If this service is stopped, network resources will no longer be published and they will not be discovered by other computers on the network.



The "Function Discovery Provider Host" service hosts the Function Discovery (FD) network discovery providers. These FD providers supply network discovery services for the Simple Services Discovery Protocol (SSDP) and Web Services – Discovery (WS-D) protocol. Stopping or disabling the FDPHOST service will disable network discovery for these protocols when using FD. When this service is unavailable, network services using FD and relying on these discovery protocols will be unable to find network devices or resources.



By default, the "Function Discovery Resource Publication" service is stopped after installing the system. You can disable the service and restart the computer to check the result. If the issue persists, you may also need disable another service if you need not use the Function Discovery function. (The service is seldom used.)



Thanks,
