    Here is the proper link to download the driver for the 8168 Realtek chipset. Realtek You do not have an Intel chipset for the Ethernet, it is a Realtek. So please stop downloading the incorrect one. Download the one that states "Win8, Win8.1 and Server 2012 Auto Installation Program (SID:1669843)"

    Also when you post the output of Speccy on here. It will give you a URL to post after it runs through its system check. Post that vs. the Screenshot.

    cant say its fixed but its different from before :/
    my internet explorer's downlaod speed never exceeded firefox's or chrome's.
    but now it seems it downlaods at abt 45 kbps ( my max. was around 65 in both chrome and firefox ) but chrome and firefox sucks at 10 kbps for the same downlaods, i've still only tested with few files but it still doesnt seems that i am back to what i was before :/
    there's cant be a sudden change in downlaod servers to a website right? earliar twas 65 kbps but all of a sudden it drops down. Its absurd. ( ex. website : Pinoy Anime TV - Watch Anime Online - Download Anime for free. Watched Anime Episode Subbed. Watch Anime with you iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Blackberry and other mobile devices. )

    although, i will need one more suggesstion,
    -should i try XP?
    -or there are some apps or internal softwares which i can remove frm win 8.1 which eat up my bandwidh


    i've attached my speccy stats @broe

    You may only see a gauge of speeds from the speedtest you are using at what it is stating. You have to look at the Internet as a Freeway. sometimes it may be clear and traffic is able to move without hindrance. Other times there are accidents or construction, so it may take some detours, or there may be a slow down in causing inaccurate readings.

    As long as you are not showing any errors on your modem for uncorrectable, etc. I would not put much into what the Speed tests are showing. If you feel that it is taking longer then normal to get to say yahoo or google. Do a Ping Test to see if there are any issues.

    Also you cannot post the .txt file. Due to it is not able to be read by us, also it contains private information from your system. There is a web URL that Speccy gives you at the end of running its examination of your system. That URL is what you need to post, not a file.

    *****An Update,
    I re=installed XP today and alas! the problem persisted there too!! and dont know why it has suddenly started to happen like this, is microsoft kindof messing with me? cuz when i installed Win 8.1, they ask to register a microsoft acc. and so i had registered with my gmail acc. with microsoft. Since every time i reformat my pc and install new copy of windows i have to re logg in to microsoft and then if they are the one\'s messing with my pc somehow then it wouldnt make sense to format my computer. As, no matter how many times i do it, my profile will be the same as attached to my gmail id.

    ""Also, currently the copy which i have installed on my pc was downlaoded from utorrent too but i highly doubt that it makes a difference because guys at utorrent patch every premium software and i have been using many stuff from there and never experienced any kind of problem."""

    i wont understand what to do, cuz torrent works fine, speedtest gives results which match the promised internet speed provided by ISP. Lose connection of my cable modem? but then utorrent should also must have worked faulty. I also tried downloading a file via IDM but there also, it stuck.therefore, Seems like a problem with the server of the particular website or traffic but then again, its the same case when i try to download any file from any website. Only some rare items seems to be properly downlaoded(not all the files of the particular website, rare files from those websites) Which NEVER happened before. And now, this thing suddenly begins :/ For ex: earlier, this "upload4free" website ( u may google it ) worked well downloading at my full speeds( around 65 kbps ) but now, its alsways below 20 kbps. P.S: I have a cable modem, so it always gives constant speed. Mine is 600 Kbits/s = 75 K bytes/s ( my max. downlaod speed, but of course it never reaches that, its at least supposed to be 65, but its below 20 now always )

    Again Microsoft is not messing with anything. If you got up to 45mb/s, then there is not an issue. If you are seeing high ping times to a P2P or gaming site, that is a problem with that site. If you are seeing high ping times to the ISP's DNS servers, or say yahoo or google. Then it is an ISP problem.

    Also keep in mind that every ISP out there, will throttle P2P/Torrent sites, unless they are reputable download sites (ie Linux distro's, etc.).

    So it means that my ISP is able to get fully utilized when i use torrent sites or any reputated sites.And as u said that if i experience any problem with regular websites like yahoo or google then ISP's the issue
    .
    but i have not experienced any BROWSING problems yet.
    how did i ensure it?
    I can moniter my net usage by a software called netlimiter from where i can see how much bandwitch it is consuming( while loading webpages which is also basically a type of downlaod only)
    and almost every website that i load, it loads by a speed above 50 kbytes ps.

    even the websites which i can talking abt from where my downlaods are slow, they also load at normal speeds.

    and these filehippo.com, realtek driver website downlaods, direct pdf downlaods by google are supposed to be good with downlaods, right? ( should utilize max. down speed of my cable modem )
    but they DONT

    and as browsing is okay and torrent works fine,
    so there shouldnt be any lose connections, right? or not? plzz say something abt this

    should i try reconnectting all my cables of my cabinet cpu and cable modems :/


    i dont understand why is there a sudden type of change to other website's downlaods.
