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/
I recently switched my mom from Windows to Fedora , and ever since her Internet speed went down. Now it takes, on average, 6-8 seconds longer for her to load a web page with Firefox. Tried to replace the modem -- didn't help. She is on a DSL connection.
But here is the striking part. Her BitTorrent speeds are better than mine, and I have a cable rather than DSL.
I can't for life imagine how these two can coexist. An innocent web page takes forever to load, and torrents are so fast. By the way, she does say that torrents used to be *even* faster on Windows.
Since I use my computer for some intense processor calculations, without any fancy graphical needs, I decided to apply a mild OC on the BIOS settings, to speed thing a bit up.I own an AMD Phenom II 1055T (2.8GHz) cpu. I changed the base freq from 200 to 203, and changed the multipliers of the standard and boost freqs to x15 and x16.5, so now the BIOS reads 3045 MHz and 3349 MHz for both speeds.
I am using linux fedora 13. Speed Internet is very low compared to Windows xp.I'm using ADSL. Especially when I'm using the FTP for download. my browser is firefox . my download manager is uget . I tested Almost all download manager . No difference.
I have EastLink cable Internet and I have the fastest residential service money can buy, I get speed test results of 30mbps down and 2mbps up, that being said, my Internet was lightning fast on windows and Mac but when I installed Ubuntu, which is my favourite OS, my Internet is very slow and laggy. Sometimes it could take several minutes for a web page to load and some torrents download at 1-2 MBps and some download at under 100kb/sec, some web pages load instantly, some take longer.
I've searched other forums I found was turning off IPv6, I am not really sure what that is but I followed the steps provided and shut it off but did not notice much of a difference. I am basically a beginner when it comes to Linux, I use the OS for my day to day school and entertainment. I listen to music, watch movies, do school work and such since I am a university student. I really love Ubuntu and don't want to be forced to go back to Win blows, I really don't like windows at all so I would really like to solve this issue and stick with this operating system.
The dvd rom drive is quite noisy if used at full speed, but it can be reduced at the cost of speed, which, depending on what you're doing, does not make much difference (like listening to music or watching a movie). Adittionaly, it may (that's just a reasonable guess) extend its lifetime. It can be manually reduced with the following command:
eject -x N /dev/cdrom (which won't actually eject it) Where N is the number of the speed you want. I've read that 4 is OK for music and 12 is OK for movies. (Reference: Setting CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drive speed to reduce noise ) Everything is fine, but is it possible to have lower speed set by default on fstab or something, or the fastest speed is always the default?
I don't really understand the CPU technology where there are different CPU speeds. I feel it is hard to compare them nowadays. For example, I have been using my laptop with Pentium (R) 2Ghz. Now, I am thinking about buying a new laptop with Intel I5 1.33GHz (Tablet/laptop). Is my new laptop going to be slower than my current one?
"Dell 1525 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & external antenna" wireless card. It got recognized fine by FC12, but it was rather slow. I had read that life would be better in FC13 with the new kernel. After a long wait, I upgraded to FC13 yesterday.
It seems that the wireless is indeed faster. However, it it clearly a lot slower than under Windows 7 (it is a dual boot PC). My test is simply to play say Hulu in full screen: under Windows it looks fine, under FC13 it plays in slow motion.
I'm using 9.10 on an 867mhz ti-book.Ubuntu is quicker than OSX and everything I care about works.However, the G4 processor can't auto-cycle up and down as later G4's could. It can operate at a reduced speed, though. Doing so greatly reduces the heat output and fan noise.Anyone know how to enable the slower processor speed in 9.10?
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?
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
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'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 ...
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.
Lately my computer, while connected to our router and using the internet, drags the connection speed of everyone in the house down tremendously, to the point of being unusable in many cases. Even buffering a ..... video causes tremendous lag across the network, making second-long load times stretch to a minute or more.
Now, our connection isn't the greatest, but ..... shouldn't cause that much lag, so I'm thinking there's something else at work. Is there some application I could use to monitor what programs on my computer are accessing the internet?
I have seen several threads lately about slow internet connections here and elsewhere, but I haven't seen anyone post a reply about blacklisting ipv6 so I am curious as to why?Is ipv6 enabled only on certain distro's or is there some other reason that it's not mentioned?
<If anyone wants to try it, to see if it would work for them>
On Slackware 12.2 and Salix 13.0 just add "blacklist ipv6" to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file. I'm not sure about non-slackware based distro's. Unfortunately, I don't know any way of doing it without rebooting.
I replaced only my mainbord and cpu and Ubuntu 9.10 boot just fine. The only issue that I have is that my connection speed dropped from 10Mb to 3Mb. I try the connection on my laptop and it is fine 10Mb, so the problem is with the PC. What else to try before reinstall Ubuntu as a final step?
So i am very new to linux based OS. Just started getting used to the terminal. but my problem is i am trying to install a game on steam and it is downloading very slow. i am used to getting close to 700 kb/s on windows 7 but on ubuntu 11.04 i am only getting 170-180 max. now i have searched all over and tried to fix it on my own but i just cant figure it out and am getting very frustrated. so if anybody has an idea as to how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. (have looked through the forum by the way but as i said im new to linux and im not actually sure if im looking at the right things) but im using a wired connection. it says im connected to something called auto etho. and there is something called a loopback connection or something like that.
I'm running 11.04. I have brought a new WiFi adapter, ralink rt2070. When I browse the internet, it takes a long time to load a webpage. When I download updates, it goes at 3,060 BYTES a second. Is there any solution? I'm using the default rt2800usb driver.
I upgraded from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 last night in response to a pop up window. When I rebooted after the upgrade my wife immediately complained about the internet not working. Actually the connection up was working but Fedora 11 upgrade had made it slow almost to a stop There are two XP machines the network behind a local D-Link wireless router with Comcast high speed internet. When I disable networking on the Fedora machine the internet connection immediately returns to normal on the other two machines. Also there is a second or two period after enabling networking for a quick upload or download before the connection clogs.I checked the system monitor network history and found that there is a constant networking send rate of just under 180 kb/s in the background.This occurs even when the browser, email client, and automatic backup are off and the only process showing significant CPU use in the system monitor is the monitor itself.
I tried netstat but there were so many /tmp/orbit entries that I could not scroll up to the top of the listing. Is this normal. If so, does anyone know the netstat command options to just see connections with sent packets. I also tried ifconfig -a. This shows no Rx packets at all, and no TX packets except on eth0, The total etho TX packets matches t,he reported by the system monitor, and in the monitor you can watch the total accumulate in approx 180 kb/sec increments. I don't understand why 180kb/sec TX would make a dramatic difference in internet network internet speed. Comcast reports upload speeds in megabytes. I need to be able to use the net in Federa, but I am also curious to learn what is the caused the problem.
I have a Fedora 11 system and cbq.init-v0.7.3 in it. Now I want to restrict upload speed from my ftp server to Internet (eth1). According to docs I've made a simple file /etc/sysconfig/cbq/cbq- 00.inet_upload_restrict:
So as you can see I want to limit outbound traffic on eth1 from my ftp port 20 to any to the 800Kbit/s (100Kbyte/s). Now I do cbq start, it says: find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option argument (, but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests specified before it as well as those specified after it). Please specify options before other arguments.
find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option argument (, but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests specified before it as well as those specified after it). Please specify options before other arguments. but it starts and works. Now I check the speed and it is...
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.
I've been running 10.04 since it came out basically and my internet connection has been fine. After I got the last set of updates that came up on the update manager (which if I remember mainly contained an updated version of the latest kernel and a couple other files) my internet connection speed went from a decent browsing speed and file transfer speeds between 80-200kbps to an almost dialup browsing speed to file transfer speeds of a about 7.5kbps its very significant and very annoying it took 20 minutes just to make this post.
Also I've already tried changing my ipv6 settings.
