Extreme network slowdown Due to Windows 7

Extreme network slowdown Due to Windows 7

I was able to get fairly good speeds and steady video/gaming. However, after I upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit, I am now unable to get more than 5% traffic, no matter how hard I push the system. I am on a wireless network (no hardlines available), using a D-Link WDA-2320 with manufacturer's drivers.

"Apparently Windows 7 was throttling the wireless! Windows couldn't tell what the proper speed was and took over, dumping me in dial-up land.

This CMD command lets you override windows overriding you: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled. I now get normal speeds.

Port forwarding issue appears to be unrelated."
