Networking :: Any Way To Set Speed Limit For Internet Connection?
Jan 21, 2011
Me and my friend are using the same internet, sometimes he downloads something or watches a movie online. When he does that my internet connection becomes very weak. So is there any way to put limit on his computer? Like only 30kb/s
I need a program that will limit download speed per connection. So that each download is limited to 100kbit/s for e,g. I tried trickled, it only limits whole application (and doesn't work with firefox). Also tried pyshaper, doesn't work. Is there such software?
I'm getting these strange answers from opera when I ask it what speed for download does it have. I am downloading fedora using ubuntu right now. Why opera tells me it's downloading with almost 200kb/s while the system monitor from ubuntu can't pass more than 110kb/s ...
In my household a number of people use the internet. Up to a maximum of 3 wired connections and 2 wireless connections at its peak, all connection through my D-LINK G604T router. The problem is, when one person is downloading or watching ..... or whatever, the others using the internet suffer. I've spent hours configuring QoS on my router, and long story short, no matter how I configure it, it just simply does not work. QoS in no way shape or form limits connection speed (which it says it should). Anyway.
I have a spare computer under my desk, and I'd like to know if I could set this up with a (free) linux distro that limits bandwidth speed per connection. For example, of the 1500 kb/ps (about) my modem pulls, is there a way to limit that to 768 or 512 per connection? so person A can still download, person B can still watch ....., and person C can still play counterstrike with a latency under 100. This would solve many, many arguments in my house I am *fairly* good with computers, but if the distro came with documentation and a GUI that would be awesome.
* TL;DR: * Is there a linux distro I can load on a spare computer that limits bandwidth per connection, wireless or otherwise, with good documentation? Failing that is there firmware I can use for my modem (dlink g604t) that would do the same? Failing that do you know of any good hitmen that would solve my family arguments, ahem, permanently?
Is there a way by which i can improve my Internet speed. I have a 100Mbps connection but the download speed is only 100kbps. I know that my ISP has limited by connection speed, but i am curious to try as to how i can get the maximum speed.
We (3) have download limit problems with a 50G/month limit (Inc uploads). The router I cannot change, and it offers no useful options. So I am considering using IP forwarding from my own box. I think I would need a second nic, & router. Eth0 would run a dchp server, eth1 would run a client. What do I run on the box to monitor downloads & uploads, and is there a way of adding pc & laptop downloads to limit luser downloads? Does this stuff strangle speed? I'm running slackware-13.1
I have a linux debian on a network connected to a router through a ethernet cord. My linux is hogging the network speed and the users of the other computers on the network aren't very happy. Is there a way to limit the download speed on only my computer?
I'm trying to find a good host for my site, and I've been trying to get one with a fast, reliable connection - I frequently use it as a proxy server for various areas, and since my connection is frequently a 50 Mb or 100 Mb line, I need a fast network connection so it doesn't slow down too much when I switch to the proxy server.
At the moment, I've narrowed it down to a couple of providers that are all within a few hops and <6ms away from my main location; it pretty much comes down to connection speed. One in particular that I'm trialing offers an metered 100100 connection at a good price, so I'm hoping to go with them, but I want to make sure the connection is solid and doesn't drop to a much lower speed during the day if they are sharing it among many users.
I have a pretty simple speed test procedure - I use wget on a 1GB file hosted on a backbone with a 1GB connection, and see how fast it downloads. For now, it's sticking at a steady 11.2 MBs or 90 Mbs, which is fast enough for me, but I need to make sure it can maintain that speed even in times of heavy usage.
Basically, I need a script that runs wget every half hour and logs the output and time in a reasonably readable format. It's probably something simple enough to do, but I'm just learning my way around the linux command shell, so some simple instructions on how to create and run such a script would be great [CentOS 5]. I have full root access to the server and I'm the only user on it if it matters.
So I switch between Ubuntu and Windows alot, because some games I can only get to run smoothly in the windows environment. Anyways, one thing I have been noticing ever since I got Ubuntu but never really questioned, was about my download speeds. When downloading a torrent in Windows, I topped out out about 2.0 mb/s. Where as in my Ubuntu install, running the same torrent program (utorrent) and downloading the same file, I was getting 3.0 mb/s. I was wondering, what is it about Ubuntu that is utilizing my internet connection better? Only a hand ful of times have I ever reached 3.0 in my windows install (such as right now while I am downloading a game through steam).
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
I've searched through the forums and found a few threads that kind of helped, but I'm still pretty lost when it comes to TC. I'm trying to do and also break it down and explain what each part of the command does so that I can learn along the way. What I'm trying to do is limit any connection from source port 6001 to 30KB/s.
I'm currently running a game server and it has no built in bandwidth limiting feature, which means if someone logs in and needs to download the map it destroys my bandwidth for the rest of the servers players. The game server is running on port 6001.
recently i rent a xen vps intended to setup a PPTPD vpn server for me and my friends. so we can by-pass the great firewall in china and get back on ....., facebook and stuff. i have already setup the server and i can connect to it without any problem. but i still want to do some further configuration the server:
1. i want to limit the bandwidth to 400k/s per connection. 2. i also want to limit the max connection per user a/c
i have some thoughts on the 2nd requirement. in the user configuration file of /etc/ppp/chap-secret, you can specify the range of ip the user can get, does it limit the max connection per user a/c? or they can connect anyway, just every now and then a box pop up says conflict in IP address?
I recently setup my two PC's for network file sharing using Samba. I notice the max speed I can transfer a file is 89kb/s instead of 100Mb/s. How can I increase the speed to max 100Mb/s? Both systems are running Ubuntu 9.10 w/Samba.
dualboot win7 and ubuntu 10.10 x64.All was fine. Suddenly I noticed that download speed on ubuntu is 100-500Kb/s, while it has to be 100Mbps. Same resources download 9Mb/s on dualboot win, so it is not hardware/isp problem. This problem occurs when connecting by eth cable. The connection is over ppp0 vpn tunnel.The ping is very slow - around 300ms even to my ISP.The only soft I was installing recently is tor/vidalia/privoxy,but I removed them all.I also noticed that avahi-daemon is running, can it be causing the delays?
My DVD player attached to my TV is picky. Burn CD's (with avi files) at 8X and it plays them. 16X and it complains about bad disk. Every time. In karmic, I can only get cdrecord to burn at 16x.
Here's the command: cdrecord -dev=/dev/scd0 -speed=8 -dao -pad -v something.iso
And it burns at 16x instead of 8x. Command issued with root privilege. Identical hardware under CentOS 5.x and it burns at 8x, like I asked it to. I'm all SATA if it matters. What do I need to do to get the version of cdrecord with karmic to burn a data CD at 8x? For whatever reason, CDs burned at 16x just don't work in the DVD player attached to my TV.
I use vsftpd. I would like to know if there is a way to limit the upload speed. Only the upload speed so the "anon_max_rate" and "local_max_rate" don't do the job. Someone told me about the trickle but I expected a more recent application.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop using the Wubi installer. Everything seems to be working fine except for my wireless connection. When I plug in my wired connection and test on speedtest.net I get download speeds of 20MB/second. However, when I switch to my wireless connection, I barely break 1MB/second. I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have scoured this forum, Google, everywhere I can think of to find a solution and none seem to work for me. I love Ubuntu but this might be a deal breaker...
I have about 5 computers on my network that get their internet connection from a Linux NAT server.
192.168.12.02 is a Linux server that has a NAT set up to share the internet connection. 192.168.12.03 is a download server that is almost always downloading 192.168.12.05 - 192.168.12.20 is assigned by DHCP to users.
I want to make it so that the download server runs at full speed but is throttled only when someone from the user IP addresses range tries to use the NAT server.I think I'm looking for some way to set the download server's packets to have a lower priority than the client's packets. Is there a way to set this in the Linux server?
When using launchpad and the ubuntu daily build website it is very slow. I get 1.2mb/s normally and the speed drops quickly to 0kb/s This is the case from any version of ubuntu that is installed on my laptop.In windows it is no problem, equally there is no problem from a live cd or an install on my external hard disk. Is canonical blacklisting/slow listing my ip?
I am behind a university network but am sure this problem occurs at home .I did a clean install and had no problem until about an hour ago. When I tried to re download a project using bzr my speed instantly ropped.I had downloaded it fine a couple of hours ago. I hope that someone can shine some light on this, its very hard to work on projects if I can't download them.
i am trying to figure out what my real internet connection speed is. when testing in speedtest, speakeasy and similar sites i get from 5 to 7,5 mbps in downloading (my line is 8 mbps). but when downloading something from the net the max speed i get is 900 kbps
I'm technically a new user for the Ubuntu OS, I'd already connect through the internet by reading some important posts on this forum which is a relief and But right now I'm still searching for getting a fast speed internet connection. I am using DWA 140 by D Link and already download the latest drivers, My only problem are How do I need to speed up the connection from the wireless adapter to the main modem/router? I'm getting 54 Mbps from iwconfig:
HTML Code: wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:" (My wireless)" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: 00:26:5A:1B:7B:A8 Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power=12 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:on
For some reason on these days i've noticed that my internet speed seems to go faster when i'm on my windows partition (shame on me i know xD) when i go back to my linux pages take too much time to load, which doesn't happen in windows, i have never had this problem before/
Is there some software to measure Internet speed and show where the slowest element is?
I use OpenSuse 11.1 and KDE although Im happy to set up a user using Gnome.
Just recently my browsing speed dropped to almost nothing ...I used [url] to measure my speed and it gave a very slow result 30kb/sec ....usually its around 3000kb/sec. I rang my ISP's helpdesk and they told me my ADSL connection was fine. Two minutes later it was back to normal!
I know the internet speed varies from time to time ...I guess depending on how many are using it and for what. But..I suspect that my ISP was restricting my speed and Im looking for a tool that will tell me which part of the internet is the "slowest"
I would also welcome pointers to information about internet speed and what causes it to change.
