Recently I've been having trouble with my connection. It doesn't matter where I'm signing on from, my upload speed is always extremely slow.

For instance at home my download speed is around 50 Mbps, and at work it's about 90, but at both places I get under 1 Mbps upload speed. If I try another laptop on my connection, the speeds are fine.

I am running Windows 7, 64 bit on an Asus U41S. The hardware is Aetheros AR8151 PCI-E Ethernet Controller. I am pretty sure the drivers are up to date.

I have 2 asus laptops with a similar problem in the past. The download was vey slow and the upload was fine. It ended up being the internal WiFI cards both times.

Turns out that it was a driver issue and I actually didn't have the latest driver. Something must have happened when I updated Windows, but after re-installing the driver all is well.
