how to restore default internet settings on m

Specs: Windows 7, 2G
I have a problem with my internet connection(rather slow for a 100Mbps bandwidth) when I connect my windows to the Internet through an Ethernet cable, but on a wireless network its pretty fast, guess there are some problems with my Ethernet adapter.But I will really love to restore my Internet settings to default.

Download CCleaner and use it. When you use the Registry part make the
Backup when it's offered. I would uncheck the Empty The Recycle Bin.

I do not know what that has to do with resetting default internet settings!
If your ethernet connection is slower that your wireless, you may have a bad cable, try another cable.
If you want to reset most internet settings to default, you have that option in Internet Explorer under Tools>Internet Options , I believe it is under the Advanced tab (I do not use IE often).
If you need to clean out your browser's internet history, cookies, etc, use the tools available in your browser under Tools>internet options>Delete or use the windows tool Disk Clean up. I do not recommend using an outside cleaner (though CCleaner is spoken of as safer than nearly any of the other out there) and Windows 7 really does not need registry cleaning like prior versions of windows has, especially if you have not found a problem traceable to your registry.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
