    Here are the steps remaining to perform...

    NOTE:
    Please note these steps, if you encounter Internet connectivity problems after applying these settings so that you can roll back changes to previous settings just in case .

    1. Right click your network icon on task bar and click "Open Network and Sharing Center"
    2. Click on "Change adapter settings"
    3. Right click on "Ethernet adapter" one that says "Unidentified network" and click Properties
    4. Scroll down and double click on "Internet Protocol v4 (TCP/IP)"

    Now input numbers into that dialog like in the image bellow:

    Click image for larger version

    5. Click OK to save and wait a minute or 2 until settings get validated.
    6. try to surf the web afterwards and see if Internet works.

    If internet does not work reboot you PC and router and try again.
    If still no luck revert changes back by following same procedure but set options to "Obtain an IP address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server automatically" like it was before modification.

    What ever the result share here.
    Hopefully it will work.

    Yes I can,it works better now.The download slowly rises to 9-11 mg,then goes back slowly to 10kb and then goes back up and seems to stay there.I can live with that ''limited''problem.

    Thank you for your effort.
