Has anyone noticed how slow the internet is in Windows 8! Is there a fix for this?
Windows 8 doesn't affect the speed of your internet connection.
From personal experience, I've seen no slowdowns whatsoever by using this operating system.
Are you certain that you have the correct drivers installed for your ethernet controller?
Maybe Driver problems with your Adapter.I installed Windows 8 on my ASUS Eee PC 1215N which has a Broadcom WiFi Adapter, and with the build in Drivers i only got a download speed of 1mbit. After downloading and installing an other Driver from www.station-drivers.com, the download speed was normal.
