    NavyLCDR: Speed is 1.0Gbps, I have another desktop wired off the same router, goes like lightning, also 2 laptops...perfect, also connected to smart tv, Netflix 4K perfect, it's just my personnel old desktop (a friend really), these other devices are not on at the same time.
    I would say it is just the old hardware, not necessarily affecting the speed of the flow of data coming in from the network, but affecting the processing of it.

    Prone to agree, going to treat myself to a complete new build with some future proofing if possible.
    Thanks everyone for their input...most appreciated.

    Which Athlon are you using? Are you using an nForce chipset? That's ancient but it shouldn't hurt the connection speed unless the system is already cluttered by too many programs installed or running in the background.
