3-4 months ago I bought a new stationary computer with windows 7. It didn't have any PCI internet card, so I bought a NETGEAR usb adapter for my WNR1000 V3 router.
I worked perfectly and with a fast download rate (I have 10mbit).
About a month ago I noticed that the internet sometimes was getting slower, and then when I tried again at a later time it was fine. But it got worse and worse, and
I checked my download rate with a program, which said that my download rate was around 10kb-50kb. It varied a lot when I downloaded, and mostly my download rate was
in that range, but sometimes it whent up to 600-900kb for some time and then it went way back down.
I then reinstalled Windows completely to factory settings, and I think the internet was working fine for some days, but then it got really bad again.
I thought that maybe it was the NETGEAR usb adapter that was causing the trouble, so I bought and installed a Edimax EW-7728In PCI internet card, but it didn't change anything...

I have asked a lot of people on different forums, but noone was able to help!

I don't know if a HJT log would help, but this log is from my freshly installed computer:
Mod Edit: Removed HJT log, which is malware tool (not allowed in this forum), not used for general system troubleshooting...connectivity issues occur for many reasons unrelated to malware and I see nothing thus far indicating that you have anything other than system issues that can be explored in this forum ~ Hamluis.

If you are certain your system is not infected you should speak with your ISP.

You could have stated that in your first post.

Is the desktop relatively close to the router?

Have you tried a different browser just to make sure the issue isn't with IE? If so, then I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum and let's find out for sure if your system is clean or infected.

No, the router is on the main floor and my computer is on 1 floor.
I normally have 2-3 bars on the tray bar.
I have tried to download google chrome, but it's so slow that it stop downloading and says that it encountered a problem..

Well, it could be the distance between the router and the system. That could make for inconsistent speeds. Also, Chrome isn't the only alternative (Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc)

I had a similar problem whit my D-Link router and I went to the d-link forum and asked there and found that there are a lot of default times selected that caused my problems. QOS was one and there was another where you could designate a stagnate address for the connection and I believe that was the one that made the most difference. You might try the netgear forums and see if they can help you (no offense to the scores of helpful people here)
