Ubuntu Networking :: How To Increase Ping / Speed

Feb 25, 2010

Last week my ping was 45 this week its 80. I've checked it on three different computers, and reset my router. I called verizon (my subpar isp) they run a few test, say every things fine. I recheck my ping, its back to 45 but only last 5 mins after they check it, then it goes back to 80. I'm always having problems with them, but every time I call them the problems "just so happen" to go away while their helping me.

Anyway, my question is... Is there anyway for me to increase my ping/speed without upgrading my internet? I have 3.5 upload, .75 upload, and a Westell model 327w. I know this is a general question and not really linux related but I thought I would try this forum first since its always so helpful. I have googled this subject but I only find windows related stuff that pertains only to the programs running on the machine. They suggest things like "dont download when you want high ping" and "temporarily turn off seeding for your torrents" It is most important in windows for me though, I like to play games and a difference of 50 and 110 ping does make a difference. Of course, everything seems slower, like streaming movies and stuff.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Speed Drops Periodically And Will Not Increase Without Reconnecting?

Jan 25, 2011

after maybe half an hour, the wireless download rate drops to about 110ks (and runs happily at up to 20x this until then). At that point, it will never pick back up above that rate unless i disconnect and reconnect. Once the problem occurs once, its like to reoccur about every 5 to 10 minutes until the machine has rebooted.

Ubuntu :: Install On An Old PC To Increase Its Speed And Usability

Jan 5, 2011

I recently decided to install ubuntu on an old PC to increase its speed and usability. Prior to this I had windows XP running on it. I installed the newest version of ubuntu, which makes the whole thing running unbearable slow. Under windows xp it was running ok, my question therefore is: which version would you guys recommend that needs less ressources, but still has comparable functionality to the new version?

General :: Sounds Like Under 10% Of Speed Increase

May 16, 2011

I have an old AthlonXP-2600+ running at 2.078 Ghz which I was assured would do 2.6Ghz, but actually doesn't and 2.178 Ghz is what we settled on. I have 266mhz ram on a board with 333mhz FSB and we sorted that out also, and specified the ram speed. That sounds like under 10% of a speed increase, if any. But the previous kernel I built here took 55 minutes (time make -j4). The one I built after the mods (nearly same config) took 33 minutes. (make clean; time make -j4) 40%? I've clearly improved or fixed something.

bash-4.1$ sudo grep BogoMIPS /var/log/messages |tail May 15 14:37:32 genius kernel: Calibrating delay loop (skipped), value calculated using timer frequency.. 4193.78 BogoMIPS (lpj=2096890) & later.

General :: Increase Mouse Cursor Speed In Ubuntu?

Jun 29, 2010

How do I increase the mouse speed in Ubuntu Linux? Running Gnome 2.30.0. I've already maxed out Pointer Speed Sensitivity in the Mouse Preferences control panel. I am not interested in increasing the Acceleration. Is there a config file I can edit to boost it past what the control panel allows?

I know that this mouse can track faster because it does in Windows.

Ubuntu Installation :: Using Multiple HD's To Increase Server Speed?

Jan 21, 2010

I am curious if it is possible to use multiple hard drives to increase server speed. I know I could run stripped drives or RAID0, but was wondering if there is any other way to do it within Linux. My default 9.10 Server install has 3 partitions as a default. Would splitting these on three drives make it any faster?

Ubuntu :: Increase Unity Launcher Scroll Speed?

May 28, 2011

Is there anyway to increase the speed of scrolling within the unity launcher? Like when you have more icons than that fit inside of your screen. I know you can just go to the scrunched up icon and hover it and it will appear, but is there a way to increase the scrolling speed when using a mouse wheel? It seems a little slow for my taste.

I think I seen a "bug report", for this, which really isn't a bug, but more a desired option to customize the unity launcher. Just wondering if this has been figured out, or even possible.

Nothing big, but just trying to tweak ubuntu a little more LOVE IT!

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Ping Over Wireless But Can Ping Over Wired?

Jul 24, 2010

I have two machines on this network, one running Ubuntu and the other running Fedora.

When I'm using the Wireless network on the Ubuntu machine, I cannot ping the Fedora machine. Everything else works. I can browse the net fine.

If I switch over to the Wired Network then I can ping the other machine.

I don't understand why ping doesn't work only over the Wireless. I can ping the router so I'm guessing it's getting blocked by the router but I didn't block ICMP traffic.

I tried asking on IRC and they ran out of ideas too to find out where the problem is.

Networking :: BIND9 SLOW Ping When Ping By Hostname

Feb 1, 2011

I just installed my first EVER bind DNS server. I am running bind9 on Ubuntu 10.04. Everything seems to be working great except one thing: If I ping a host that I have set up in bind by its HOSTNAME the pings take 5-6 seconds to reply/print to the screen between each echo response. If I ping by the host's IP address, they echo back very quickly.

I have read that IPv6 can cause this, but I have disabled it in /etc/sysctl.conf and the problem still exists.

I know everyone says this can't be a DNS issue, but this never was an issue with dnsmasq (which i was using prior), and it doesn't make sense that the ping are ONLY slow when pinging by hostname and not IP.

Configs below:

Ping by hostname - there is a 5-6 second delay between each one of the responses:

Code:

Ping by IP - the responses come VERY quickly one after the other:

Code:

/etc/resolv.conf:

Code:

Code:

rev.0.168.192.in-addr.arpa:

Networking :: Can't Ping Past Gateway / Can Ping Server From Outside

Apr 29, 2010

So, I have an Virtual Machine running CentOS 5.4. It sits behind a hardware firewall which also does NAT'ing. I've set up plenty of these, so I know for sure the firewall and NAT rules are set up correctly. From the host, I can ping anything in my subnet and the gateway. But I can't ping anything else beyond the gateway. I can perform DNS queries and when I try to ping, it finds the appropriate IP address.But from the outside, I can ping the PUBLIC address (It's a 1 public to 1 private address NAT, not 1 public to multiple private). I've tried it with IPTABLES on and off, with no change.

Networking :: Ping Connection To Router OK But No Ping Between Boxes In LAN

May 26, 2010

I have Mandriva One 2009.0 (192.168.1.100) on one box and Mandriva Free 2010.0 (192.168.1.118) on the other. I can ping router (192.168.1.1) from both of these boxes but I can't ping one box to the other and the other way around. What's going on?.

Do I have to change some settings in router?. Or is it firewall issue on those two machines?. Both of these boxes are connected by cable. Symbol of the router: TL-WR340G.

Ubuntu Networking :: Increase Tx Power Of My Wireless Cards?

Jul 29, 2011

I have a wlan0 which is Atheros AR928X and wlan1 which is Alfa AWUS036H

I thought I could set iwconfig wlan0 txpower [higher than 20] but any value more than 20 results in:

Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

I get the same error for wlan1 when trying a value higher than 27.

Is there a way of increasing the TX power and if not then why not?

OpenSUSE Network :: Nmblookup Resolves But Cannot Ping Netbios Names Or Ping FQDN

Feb 23, 2011

This applies to my 2 opensuse PC's, my Windows PC is fine.I can ping a hostname, say "PC1" but I can not ping PC1.domain.local (even the host PC can not ping it's own FQDN). When I ping just the hostname the ping stats even list the FQDN.Onto the next issue, since all my PC's, have the domain prefix domain.local, my Synology can not. I can ping it's IP and that is it. I can resolve it's name with nmblookup just fine tho and that is what is killing me. How is this not resolving.Even weirder, I can browse to "Synology" in Network Servers under places on the slab.
