I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium about a couple of weeks ago and since then, my download speed has decreased to less than 25% of my usual speed. My laptop (Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8930) is connected wirelessly to my Home Network via a Linksys router. I have Comcast Cable and used to be able to download at about 3200 KB/s. Now I average about 675 KB/s. Has anyone had the same issues and found a solution? Thank you for any advice.

Did you use the Windows Upgrade Advisor and have you checked the compatibility of the Linksys router (model?) on the Linksys site?
