I have a very light understanding for computer building. Most of what i know is from reading articles or experience with my computer (this is the first I've built). So things i say may be completely wrong

I recently changed out my motherboard for another that had more slots for memory.
The new motherboard i got is the AsRock A770DE+ (amd770 + SB710 chipsets)

Everything is great except the internet

My household gets 30mbps from Road Runner
- i know the problem is not internet source (the main computer gets full 30 mbps)
- i know the problem is not the" rel="nofollow - router (multiple other laptops have received 25 mbps at the same time)

Currently according to i am getting 10mbps but the internet dies quite often

With my old motherboard, i used Trendnet Wireless N PCI Adapter to connect to the internet (back then we only received 5 mbps) and it received the full amount.

With this motherboard, when i plug in PCI wireless adapter, the system either doesnt recognize the card (if only for a few seconds and yes installed correct drivers) OR the system does not recognize any sata ports and therefore cannot boot (WTF!!!)

So what I've done to compensate for that is:

1. use usb wireless internet adapters
- i have both a TP-Link" rel="nofollow - TL-WN722N and a Trendnet http://" rel="nofollow - TEW-664UB
- I've found with these that i can get the best connection when i use both at the same time (one on the lower and one on the higher broadband transmitted from the router)
- weird things i dont understand: sometimes its faster when i use only one connected to the lower broadband
--these usually gets my pc 5-7mbps each

2. use a sling blade to get a wireless ethernet cord connection (im actually borrowing this so i will have to return it soon)
- this gets my pc ANYWHERE from 0 to 15 mbps (dont know why it varies so much)

Here are my computer specs:

Is the onboard network adapter conflicting?

recently i've only been able to receive less than 4mbps from all of these together
when i have only one of the three in i get around 6mbps

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW what people suggest how to fix this or what new stuff (both what would be cheapest and what would be the very best) to buy.
