    Hey all,

    I have some problems. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. Then I installed Boot Camp 3.0. No hiccups or problems during the install.

    Upon downloading update, I realize the agonizingly slow DOWNLOAD speed that I'm getting from all sites. This problem is isolated to this computer only (No problems on other comps or on the Mac side of things).

    Ran a speed test. Interestingly, I'm only having slow down on the download end. I've tried Windows update.. no luck. I tried Boot Camp drivers... no luck.

    I basically went back and forth between drivers. No luck.

    What else can I possibly do? I've had no problems before with Win7 Ultimate RC w/ Boot Camp 2.0.

    Maybe I should go back to 2.0?

    I would say that it has something to do with the Windows 7. My Mom was given a laptop from her work when she recently retired. Beyond the frustration of Microsoft's latest version ( although windows 7 is better than Vista ), I noticed that the up and download speeds on the wireless portion was slow compared to my work laptop ( windows XP).
    I found off the Apple forum some info on this. I hope it helps.
    Good luck.
