I've recently started using Windows 7, and the internet speed is painfully slow, it maxes out at about 70 kb/s. I've been on this connection for a few years now, and have 3 XP computers hooked up to it that get normal (900 kb/s) speeds as always.
My Windows 7 is a pretty clean installation, apart from Office and a few other standard things it's not been clogged up with a lot of programs. I have read many threads about this issue on other sites and whirlpool, and I have tried everything suggested, but the speed is as slow as ever, both with wireless on and turned off (the Win 7 is the PC connected to the modem). I have the latest firmware for my Netcomm modem, and installed the latest LAN driver on my motherboard.
Can someone please help?

Hi, thanks for the reply, here is the speedtest result:
But in real life I have never reached this speed on this computer. Like my post said, I'm happy to get over 100kb/s. Even web pages take a long time to load, especially ones with photos/pictures.
