My new Desktop has severe lag connecting to server
Both my Laptop and desktop are using the same ISP and modem/router. The laptop connects to the server without problems. However, the desktop has failed to connect. Running a ping and tracert showed there was a serious lag in the desktop connection. The tracert was done at the same time for both machines and the laptop connected but the desktop connection was timed out.
The desktop is new and only has Windows 7 64-bit, hardware drivers and a third party software which I am trying to connect with. I addition, It is using a realtek ethernet controllerand Asus M5A87 motherboard.The desktop connects with other servers, the internet and third party website. I uninstalled the network drivers and then reinstalled them as an attempt to deal with the problem.
This did not help. My question is this: why does the desktop that contains almost nothing installed in it fail to connect while the laptop has no problem connecting? I do not have any antivirus or firewall installed. Further, my service provider is not connected to my ISP since my ISP is located in another country. There is no direct link between my ISP and the third party I try to connect to. This situation has really worried me and I need someone to assist me. Will you be the one?
