So I've got a desktop wired plus many wireless devices on my home network.

Wireless is fine.

My desktop wired PC has issue getting online. I've just done an install of win 7 for other reasons and I get the Internet but it is worse than dial up performance and I'm on fibre network.

I've restarted the router and changed all the lan cables with no luck.

It has to either be the LAN in my router OR my desktop motherboard.

How can I troubleshoot this?

my router stays on 'connecting' for IPv6 But IPv4 is connected, not idea if this is related?

You could use task manager to see what speed your LAN card is connecting at

Network utilisation is around 1%

Speed is around 10Mbps

What does that tell me?

Well, if the connection is only at 10Mbps that's not good.  You'd expect a 100M or 1G connection.

Go to Device Manager > Network adapters > Ethernet connection and check that your LAN drivers are properly installed.
