    More info :
    I seem to have also come across some(rare) files which get downloaded in the same speed while other files ( frm the same website ) do not.

    You need to find out the correct chipset for your network adapter. You can use Speccy to find that info out, if you cannot find it in the Device properties Detail tab. Loading various drivers is actually going to cause more problems, then fix it.

    As for downloading speed. It helps also to know what speed package you are paying for from your provider.

    it seems absurd because i never had this kind of problem, even whem i installed win 8.1 , it worked fine initially but now, no matter how many times i install it, it never gets fixed.
    is this the only possible known option ? ( find out the correct driver)

    and also, whenever i try to downlaod ethernet drivers i.e, PCIe GME for my motherboard i.e; DG41RQ i get the same links that i have tried. and i can never find any mention of any chipset name :/
    so even if i find out my chipset name, what do i do?

    as u said, i have checked my chipset "Intel G41 Express Chipset (Intel)" it was there under the graphics column of speccy( okay, right? )

    and have downlaoded frm here "https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=18629&lang=eng&ProdId=3198"

    is this okay?? i think its the same


    plzz rply, we r at the final stages of this problem

    Again, I do not know. You will need to verify with Speccy Download Speccy - MajorGeeks to find out the correct chipset, so you download the correct driver.

    You need to find out the Network card chipset, not "Intel G41 chipset", follow the instructions of bore23.
    EDIT:
    Right click "Realtek PCIe GBE Family controller" after highlighting it, click properties, look for the version of the driver under "Driver" tab.

    Hi there.

    The explanation might actually be more simple.

    You say you are using (or have used) Utorrent on a slowish connection - presumably not one of those Fibre Optic fast Unlimited connections. It's therefore quite possible that you've been "Capped" or "Throttled" -- ISP's - especially on the older non cable type connections throttle people very quickly if they think they have been making "excessive " - by their usually very lowish standards - not yours !! downloads.

    It can also depend on the sites you are acessing as well -- no connection can deliver download speed FASTER than the data can be retrieved from the remote server -- for example if you had a speed of 1,000 mb/s (or 1 GB/s) but the server / remote website could only deliver 1 BYTE / Sec that's all you'd get. - People often forget that.

    My experience with LAN / WIFI cards is that they either WORK or DON'T Work so I don't think you've actually got a driver issue here. Reverting back to XP might only solve the problem temporarily - depends on how the ISP identifies your computer when it decides to Cap or throttle the speed. Remember it's the start of a new month as well so your speed / throttle or whatever might have been re-set - so don't jump to conclusions too quickly.

    Cheers

    well thnks bro, but that where the sad part lies.
    I use a cable modem which doesnt cap its speeds no matter how much u downlaod. and i am still using utorrent
    and it still normal, the problem is somewhere in the system( maybe software part cuz if there were any hardware prob then utorrent shoudnt have worked either :/)
    that i coudnt identify
    maybe its a win 8.1 bug :3
