    Got some internet security installed that is killing your speeds?

    What is your network like? I assume pretty basic home setup (one router, less than 20 devices)? If that is the case (and you tried different NICs, network cables, and drivers) then it almost has to be something software-wise on your pc. If the pathping is clear, then its about the only thing left (unless interference, but seems unlikely since all other devices getting proper speed).

    Because you write all your devices except one reach the speeds as expected, I would rule out everything in your network which is NOT related to the client in question.
    So all things which remain are:
    - client itself
    - cable to router
    - port on router
    - port-specific settings in router config

    The router's port is checked easily, just connect your LAN cable to another port and watch for changes in speeds.
    The cable to the router is another thing which is easily checked with another cable.
    The client itself is another thing. Check ...
    - LAN port (use another one or wireless or insert addin card if at hand)
    - drivers of LAN connection
    - settings of LAN connection (Did you play with them? "TCP checksum offload" and stuff like that? Then revert them to defaults)
    - MS updates (chance is small, but not impossible)
    - 3rd party software like bandwidth limiters, software firewalls, antivirus scanners, any "monitoring" software, other software which either accesses the connection or installs a "driver" (like software firewalls sometimes do and add a "packet filter driver" on the LAN connection)

    So probably you may want to check the easy things like cabling first.

    Good luck! :)

    did you have the same issue as the author of the thread or what?
    I think that the problem is not the enthernet supplier - I think it's the problem of "weak" router
