Ubuntu :: Painfully Slow Access To Particular Website

I'm having difficulty accessing while using Ubuntu 11.04 and Ubuntu 10.04.I've tried chrome, firefox and opera as well as three different ISPs. My Windows machines don't seem to have this problem.

A little background:My agency has several offices, some with different ISPs, but with essentially the same setup: ISP router/modem --> Ubuntu Server with Squid/Dansguardian --> Switches, etc.When we first started encountering this problem I thought I had to have had something going on with Squid/IP Tables or something of that sort. I connect my laptop (running Ubuntu 11.04) directly the ISPs modem/router and have the same slowness. I figure that maybe the site is having problems. I ask the other tech in my office to try it out (he's running Windows 7) and he has no slowness with the site when connected directly to the ISPs modem/router.For the time being I've circumvented the filter box for the Windows users who need access to this site, but I'm not certain that's the best solution.I contacted the site's tech support several times and just gotten a "we'll call you back".Any suggestions on things I can check/change with my setup to get this working?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Apps Interface Have Become Painfully Slow
Since I switched to lucid (clean install), the interface has become very slow, unresponsive. I had no such problem in karmic. Switching from one window to another, displaying menus, browsing files, resizing windows etc... take ages to display.Now what is strange, is that this problem only affects native gnome applications.For instance Scribus or Blender run very smoothly, whereas Nautilus, Rhythmbox, Gimp or Inkscape, to name a few, suffer from those horrible lags.I'm pretty sure it's not a driver problem, I'm using the latest nvidia-current drivers, and I tried everything : disabling compiz, disabling metacity compositing, using nouveau, using latest kernels, using xorg server 1.8. No change.

So I know the problem only affects native gnome apps, but now how can I find which package causes this mess ?I just installed a few repos to have some recent graphic apps (gimp, inkscape, openshot, scribus... that's it), but I can't see in what way they could have messed with my system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Painfully Slow After Upgrade (Not DNS)
I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10, and Firefox is painfully slow to use. Changing between already loaded tabs takes almost a second. Scrolling through a loaded tab is also slow and jerky. Other programs (e.g. Thunderbird, or just browsing the filesystem) also seem slower when Firefox is running.

I'm running Firefox 3.5.6. My PC is Compaq Presario 2200 laptop (about four years old) with 768 MB RAM. As another data point, I also have the most recent version of Linux Mint installed on the same PC, running Firefox 3.5.3, with no problems. I've searched, and some problems have apparently been due to DNS problems, but I have problems when I'm offline (wifi physically removed), looking at webpages saved on my disk, which are already fully loaded, so it's not a DNS problem. I did try steps 1 - 7

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Painfully Slow Wireless Throughput On Atheros AR5001 Card
I have a Acer Revo R3610 nettop on which I installed oS11.3. It has an Atheros AR5001 wireless network adaptor.I'm getting very bad latency and throughput on with this card. In comparison my Thinkpad with Intel card achieves at least 10 times the throughput from the same location. Also when I boot my wifi will come up authenticate and then a few seconds later disconnect and reconnect. I've tried updating the kernel to 2.6.35 as one of the fixes was to improve the performance of the ath5k driver. I'm using wpa2 authentication.

Here are some details:


mediacentre:~ # /sbin/lspci -nnk
00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: nVidia Corporation MCP79 Host Bridge [10de:0a82] (rev b1)
Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0222]


Is there anything else I paste that will help determine the cause of the bad throughput. Browsing the web or copying files across the network is bordering unusable.

Fedora :: Internet Speed - Website Load - Everything Is Slow ?
I am having problems with website load speeds. I have fendora 15 and windows loaded on my machine. When I am in windows the internet connection is fine but when I am in fedora everything is slow. I am connecting wirelessly to a netgear router using a D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop Adapter

I have not installed anything for the wireless card.

I have tested my speeds from here [url] and I know that I am getting around 7000kb down.

I have gone into firefox to about:config and set network.dns.disableIPv6 to true... but everything is slow.

Fedora Installation :: FC14 Very Slow Opening Website Pages?
I just installed FC14 on 2 different PCs. It takes over 40 seconds for either of them to open some webpages, ie amazons home page. It is not my internet connection. I can open the same webpage on both my Windows PCs in less than 5 seconds. I was using FC9 up until 1 month ago, and I believe it took about 15 seconds to open amazon, but I never actually timed it. I spend many hours a day on the internet and have used FC for many years. I have been very happy with it. Until now. My PCs are 1.8GHZ single processor and 2.4GHZ dual processor. Do I have to revert back to FC9 to fix this, or use a different distro?

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Access Website Over Internet
I have ubuntu 10.04 running LAMP and proftpd, I can access over LAN but not when I type my domain name in. I have forwarded all necessary port to to the local ip of that box, added rules to ufw to allow traffic on those specific ports. I use dyndns for a second level domain and have used all their tools to check whether the ports are open and have the results I am looking for.

Ubuntu Servers :: Website Access Only / When Rootuser Is Logged In
After a battle with Ubuntu, Django, Apache and wsgi i could reach the website i set up from another computer via ip-adress ( i then restarted the server and after booting tried to access the website from outside - permission to / denied with the usual 403 error. trying to fix that, i logged in to the server and suddenly the website was available again. typed logout on the server - no access wt. 403. logged in - website can be accessed.i somehow suspect this is some strange permission problem, but i don't have a clue where to start searching. errorlogs just contain information that a / access request has been denied.

Ubuntu Servers :: No Access To Phpmyadmin And Website After Reboot?
I installed ubuntuserver edition 10.10 on my old p3.Installation went fine and i installed LAMP and SSH along with it.*everyhting i do past this point is via LAN on my laptop using root account on putty or winSCP.*I installed phpmyadmin, loged in with root, duplicated the root acount and gave the duplicate any host (%) access. Next i created an account with access only to the users database (for use in my php to check username and password).Next thing i did was change the apache2 config 000-default to disable indexing.After that i changed the php.ini file to allow 6GB uploads (for movies).Rebooted... and thats where the problems start.I CANT:Acces phpmyadmin with any acount.Login on my website.I CAN:login to mysql using root.I HAVE:Checked if the mysql database and table for websitelogin still existed, they do.Checked mysql useracounts and they are still there.So something changed after the reboot, because it was working fine before i did.

General :: Apache Website Access
I have web server apache on linux Centos. I can access it successfully by typing on the address bar http://localhost, or from the local computer server and the site loads normally with graphic. When I access the site from another computer in the same local network, I don't get the correct website. I see the site like html as text not graphic. Please see below text file output from the browser: Also I can only access the site by typing IP address in the address bar. When I type http://localhost or, the site does not come up. Do you see what I did wrong? How can I fix this problem.

General :: Unable To Access Website
I just bought the Barnes & Noble Nook eReader for my wife's birthday and a requirement is to log on to the Nook website and establish an account. Using her Fedora 13 64bit desktop and Firefox she repeatedly tried to access the website to create an account, however consistently got the server not found message. Even using the Firefox addon User Agent Switcher and turning off NoScript did not correct this.

When we switched over to the WinXP install and Firefox we were able to access the website no problem. Anyone else unable to access that website via linux?

Networking :: Can't Access RH Enterprise Server 6 Website
I set up an apache webserver on a redhat enterprise server 6 last week. It works fine on the localhost. However, the webpage can't be accessed from the other computer. I didn't modify anything related to 'allow,deny' in httpd.conf. The only thing I've done is I added a rule in iptables to approve the access from a computer with a specific IP address. Since I am quite new to iptables, I don't know if there is anything wrong with my setting.

Even I stop iptables, the problem is still there. I don't know if my setting of iptables is correct. Or, there is anything else that I should do?

CentOS 5 Server :: Cant Access Website - Cannot See From Any Other Machine On Net
I have set up a 5.5 installation on a Virtual box VM. The Virtualbox (not for the VM) network preferences have DHCP Server disabled and IPV address and the network mask I believe are valid for my home network. My VM is up and running and it has gotten an IP address from my home router and everything seems fine. From any machine in my house I can ssh into my centos installation. I went ahead and started up the httpd service and the website is up. IOW, I can see it from my centos box - when I navigate to http://localhost However, I cannot see it from any other machine on the net. The IP address of the centos bos is From the centos I can do a ttp:// and see the Apache 2 test Page. I can see that from anywhere else. Although I can ssh to that machine.
