Hi! [Sorry for my english errors] Recently I've moved to another city, and the other day my internet company set up the line. My netbook is connected to my router through WiFi, and always works fine. But, my desktop PC, which is wired (the same cable I was using in my other house), doesn't work properly. Here's the weird thing about all of this:

Most of the time apps update properly (including games), google drive sometimes syncs correctly, sometimes it doesn't, and browsers' speed is too slow (I can hardly connect to any website).

I've tried IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera. It doesn't matter, speed is too slow.

Also, I've made a virus scan, my pc is clear.

 

Finally, yesterday I gave a try to Elementary OS (Live USB) and browsers worked perfectly.

 

So, ... any idea of what the hell is going on?

Have you tried plugging the cable directly into the tower eliminating the router?

I can't do that. I mean, how can I connect the line cable (telephone) to the tower (internet)?!

If I remember Altex 'Net tech correctly:  he mentioned something about the throughput, the average ability and the speed of material going from computer to router, then modem, to the 'Net, back to modem, back to router, back to computer.  That throughput was governed both by hardware and software.

I would download the newest version of your wired network driver, then remove the wired network adapter in device manager, reboot, and install the driver you previously downloaded.

 

Then reset TCPIP

Reinstalling windows should work, but maybe something else to try first but I don't know what.
