    My internet pages have started to load very slowly (like 5 seconds to load). When I disable and enable the network card, they start to load at normal speed for about 30 minutes. This machine is running windows 7 64 bit. Another machine connected to same router is running XP and doesnt seem to have the same issue.

    Using google chrome.

    Can anyone provide some advice to fix this problem?

    Thank you.

    Make sure you have the latest driver for the network card. If you already have the latest driver uninstall the driver and then re-install.

    Gee, why didn't I think of that? :rolleyes:

    The card works for at least half an hour. How much more compatible are you looking for? :confused:

    I updated the driver and things seem to be back to normal speed. Should I declare this solved? Many thanks for the tips. I am curious why this would happen all of a sudden (months after upgrading to windows 7) but I guess I should not push my luck.

    May as well mark it Solved if it seems to be. You can later mark it unsolved if necessary.

    Maybe the driver was a little corrupted and just re-installing the same driver would have been enough, or maybe a Windows update changed something that made a driver defect worse and that's why the driver update was needed. But, it was probably something that we mere humans would never suspect. :)
