This fix is for all window's vista users who have reeltek RTL8139 family NIC Ethernet card.

Go to Start
right click on computer
go to properties
click on device manager
click on network adaptors
Right click on the realtek card, and go to properties
Go to the driver tab
Click on Roll back driver
A box will come up, and click okay.

This will reset the driver to the old driver back in 2006. The new 2007 windows vista driver does not work correctly. Once you roll back the driver, this "should" fix your problems. When I did this, my download speed went from 7-32kps to 11,000 kps.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Note: If it did not roll back to a driver back in 2006, then you need to locate the driver somewhere on the internet.
