I have a 18Mg download speed internet connection and surfing the web is supper fast, streaming video is decent, etc. when I go to download a file 100 mg or so really anything my download speed will clime to about 1.3mg and then start dropping and level off at about 32 kb or lower. if I pause and restart the download it will jump back up again for a while and then come back down. if i constantly pause and restart the file will download in roughly the same amount of time as if the connection was working properly.
I am at a university where my bandwidth is severely capped. I can start several other computers near me and download at the limited speed simultaneously. Is there any way for me to share the download between the computers to get the cumulative speed?
I am having problems with download speeds in Ubuntu 9.10. Downloads start at a healthy speed and then drop to almost zero. This affects apt-get install, Pan newsreader etc. With apt-get install if I terminate the download (with [Ctl][C]) and restart it I get another burst at high speed then again back to almost nothing. It makes updates a nightmare. With Pan newsreader I get high speed for most files but when downloading some of the larger files the speed drops right back to almost nothing after a while. I am on wired ethernet (no wireless). Typically I will get about 1.1MB before the speed drops - although I think it may be a function of time rather than data. I am talking to my ISP via a Netgear FWAG114 router and a NetComm NB5 ADSL modem operating in bridge mode. Although a number of users appear to have experienced very similar symptoms here I haven't found an answer that works.
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 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'd like to use tc and iptables to restrict the download speed. I understand this is know as policing. Are there some resources I could use to learn how to do this? I want to restrict on a per ip basis.
I have vonage phone service and two computers - currently using the vonage device which is essentially acts as a router with 2 phone ports. The trouble is, the vonage device splits the download speed among the two computers and the phone even when the second computer and the phone are plugged in but not actually being used. Is there such a thing as a router with phone ports that does Not do this?
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.
from vuze(bit torrent client) it shows my total download speed to be 20.56 KB/s....while my network monitor tool shows a speed around 72.41 KB/s. Similar is the case with upload speed. In much simple words the download/upload speed that vuze shows appears to be less than that shown by the network monitor tool.I must mention that at the time vuze was running there was no other simultaneous downloads.I don't understand why this is so?Is there any tool that can give me the exact information of downloading & uploading speed or rather any tool that can give me the details of uploads/downloads presently going on.
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 am connecting from this Ubuntu 9.10 computer to a WRT54G running dd-wrt, over WPA2 AES. Normally, everything works fine and I get very satisfactory download speeds; usually 1.5+ Mbps. Sometimes though, usually after restarting networking a lot, i.e. /etc/init.d/networking restart, the download speed seems to be limited to around 64-70 kbps. It also happened recently when I disconnected from a vpn with vpnc. It's really strange because it has nothing to do with changing any settings.
The only things I can think of are POSSIBLY wpa_supplicant causing problems because that's the only thing besides networking that's restarted. It could be related to my router config but I can't imagine what because it runs so fast normally. Rebooting the router doesn't fix it. Restarting the network, manually killing wpa_supplicant, rebooting the router. None of these seem to fix it. The only way I've found is to just reboot. Obviously, something breaks at some point that isn't affected again by anything but a reboot.
How do I do a download speed test when comparing Hosting Providers?I'm on a Macbook Pro - wondering if there's an ap for this?Also, I have accounts at each provider with a 100mb file, but I'm guessing I'm closer to one than the other? How would I make it fair?
I have a pretty decent DSL connection that usually gave me about 105KB/second download speed over wifi. The "official" download speed was 1.5 megabits so I should have been getting a bit more, but that's not my question.
I recently switched to Mint from Ubuntu. Now my download speed is significantly slower, to the tune of 45 KB/second. Since the connection runs at normal speed when I connect via an ethernet cable, my guess is that mint doesn't give enough power to the wifi card. Is there any way I can fix that?
Just want to make sure I am not crazy. I am downloading the upgrade right now (9 p.m. time Eastern U.S.), and not getting much faster than 31 kbps on the download. Regular web pages are loading quickly as normal. Are the Canonical servers overtaxed?
Ubuntu version 10.04. until day before yesterday, everything is working fine but now specific problem arises that is my internet download become 1/4th than usual.
Heres the story: i have internet (LAN) connection of 512 kbps. when i tries to download anything, using (syneptic, firefox default downloader, jdownloader) the download speed i get is 10-20 kb/s which should be 50-60 kb/s. the limited downloading speed is only when i tried to download a file; browsing n online video content play at max. speed i.e. 50-60 kb/s. i m using net speed panel applet to monitor current net speed.
Here is something unexpected: during downloading, when i start a game(openTTD or battle of wesnoth), downloading speed accelerated to max. (50-60 kb/s) but when i close the game, it drop back to 10-20 kb/s. so definitely this isn't the problem with the net.
i realised that although before when i had windows7 my relative download speed was around 5.0 MB/s ( i have a 50MB virgin connection)now with ubuntu 10.10 im limited to only 2.8MB/s or somewhere around there.
First i tested my wireless speed on another laptop (with windows 7) on the same network and the speed was as i said around 5.0MB/s sometimes even more. So i thought it was only chrome that i was using at that point.However, this download speed limitation appears in jdownloader as well as in firefox and i guess the whole system.
SO im wondering if there is any way to set up the speed limit on the system and if there is, how should do i go ahead with this change,through the terminal or through preferences?
It sounds weird but on Linux I can't find a browser that allows to set a download speed limit. I found an extension for Firefox but it works only on Windows. I know the existence of download managers like d4x, wget, jdownloader, etc... but some downloads can only be done by browser. I know trickle too but if I want to change the speed limit I have to 'restart' the command (interrupting the current download). Then I didn't find an extension for Chromium.
Using 10.04 my download speed is so slow, with Opera browser(tried FF too)using places like rapidshare, I get 70/80 kbs , but on windows machine on same connection/line, i get 500/700 using same link,Did i miss something? Is this a firewall problem? or is it just me?
Basically the problem is a slow download speed over my wireless connection that does not occur in Windows Vista. The reason I'm so annoyed is that the speed is not constantly slow. It bursts at around 600kb/s (good for my internet connection). The problem is that while trying to download a file it bursts for about a second,then total throughput decreases to +/- 1kb/s for a few seconds, then another burst and so on. Note the file I'm downloading is a http:// download, not p2p or anything. I've attached a screenshot of the System Monitor. Screenshot-System Monitor.png Some additional info. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all available updates installed. The browser in use is Google Chrome.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.10 and i have noticed that my download speed is quite slow. i have an excellent connection to the internet and i didn't have any speed problems when i used windows vista. (i'm using a friend's windows 7 os right now and everything is fine.) how do i modify the download/bandwidth feature that is naturally a part of the ubuntu package so that it's not a problem anymore? the most i think i saw it download packages and files was 37 kb/s.
Basically, the kind of downloads i'm doing are for installing new packages to ubuntu, and that took ages. i even tried to download ubuntu 10.04 from ubuntu.com and it would have taken almost 3 hours to complete!
I am currently using Ktorrent on Ubuntu9.10, the torrents either have a slow download speed or have trouble establishing a connection with the tracker. I have no such problems when I was using utorrent on Win XP.
Ran the update manager, system was pretty much up to date, only a few files to download. Was it ever SLOW. Most of the time I can download from other sites about 650 kB/s. The update was around 10 kB/s and slower sometimes. What is wrong? Just a lot of people updating at the same time?
I've noticed this happening on some servers that I manage. I'll be downloading updates around 300 kb/s - 500 kb/s and then out of nowhere it will drop to about 3 kb/s. It will stay here forever, if I let it. I then have to cancel (Ctrl-C) the updates and restart them. This happens over and over and over until I finally get the full download. Why does this happen?
I have been using u torrent in windows and I am not able to find a similar torrent client in ubuntu 10.10, I was using transmission bittorrent client, but it is not able to look for peers and seeds as utorrent does and even the download speed is very slow when compared to utorrent. Which is the best torrent client as powerful as utorrent?
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).
