I build a new computer recently and i can't for the life of me figure out why I'm having slow downloads, slow data transfer from my other computer, and winrar just won't work. Burning cd's a no go. Here's the specs:
P180 case
Intel Core2Duo E6600
Asus P5W DH Mobo
120 GB seagate barricuda 7200 rpm sata 3.0 Gbps trans
320 GB same as above
Samsung Lightscribe DVD burner
USB card reader

Attached below is my setting to ensure I'm in DMA cause the reason I got before was PIO, but it was never in PIO. Also I was downloading ITunes for my brand spankin new computer with only a few apps on it. It downloads way slower than my 4 yr old lappy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My thought's is that it's the mobo. I only have a few days left to RMA.

Have you installed all of the drivers for the motherboard? Start with the chipset driver, then do all the rest. Your motherboard should have come with a CD that has all of the drivers. If not, go to the motherboard manufacturers web page and get them. Looks like this has on board LAN. It may be a problem with the LAN driver.

To be honest, it's very likely it's the case of you using a laggy Apple server to download files. I very much doubt your drivers or hardware will be affecting the speed.
