Ubuntu :: Faster Download Speed - Utilize Internet Connection Better?

Jun 24, 2011

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).

Debian :: Samba To Windows 7 Speed

Mar 1, 2010

I am experiencing the slow transfer speed from my Lenny to Windows 7. Both of my NIC's are oboard Nvidia nForce 1GBPs. For example 200MB transfer from Win to Lenny (default samba shares) takes about a minute, while the other way around takes an hour!!!. I get similar transfer behavior through sFTP.

Can somebody clarify if the problem is in NIC drivers, MTU (I can't set it up higher than 1500), or smb.conf settings

Ubuntu Networking :: Ethernet Not Reaching Expected Speed?

Sep 13, 2010

I have been doing a variety of speed tests on my ethernet connection in preparation for upgrading my service and found that the connection on my dell d630 is not getting expected download speeds. In fact, it is getting about a third of the expected speed. This machine is running Lucid. It also dual boots Windows Vista. Checking Vista a moment ago, the speed is fine. What could be the problem that is preventing the ethernet from working at 100%?

CentOS 5 Networking :: How To Restrict Ethernet Port Speed

I have a server in a colocation environment where I'm allotted 25Mbps. I'd like to avoid exceeding that for obvious reasons. Is there a way I can set the link speed or at least throttle the bandwidth for all services?

Networking :: Ethtool Command Not Changing Speed Of Ethernet Card?

Feb 14, 2011

I have a CentOS 5.5 machine (hosted at a remote hosting company) where "ethtool" reports that the eth0 device is currently in 10 Mbps mode, but the output indicates that it supports 100 Mbps. But if I try using ethtool to switch the device into 100 Mbps mode, it doesn't work; after running the command to switch it to 100 Mbps, ethtool reports the speed is still 10 Mbps:

[root@sls-eb5p17 network-scripts]# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full


The man page at [URL]..ethtool seems to suggest that this should have worked. Any reason why the reported speed of the device didn't change? Changing other settings doesn't appear to work either, e.g. if I specify "duplex half" instead of "speed 100", eth0 still reports "Duplex: Full".

Programming :: Programs Run Faster Than Windows?

Jul 25, 2010

I know this may be just me being a little bias on OS's but... I quite honestly believe that "some" programs run faster on linux than on windows.

Open Office for example, It runs amazingly fast on my linux distro but runs horribly (laggy) on my Vista machine.

Firefox also appears to run faster on my linux machine than on my Vista machine.

There are several more examples but I could go on and on with this.

My point is, do programs run faster on linux than on windows? Or is it just me that is in denial?

I am not sure if comparing linux to Vista is a good comparison in terms of program speed or not...

Also it should be noted that the Vista machine "hardware" is "several" times faster than my linux machine's "hardware".

I am not trying to start a flame war or anything like that, I am just trying to make sure I haven't totally lost my mind.

Ubuntu :: Restore Open Windows Faster?

Jul 27, 2010

I'd like open windows to reappear from the taskbar faster. There's always a delay of at least 1 or 2 seconds between clicking on a minimized window and it being restored.

At first I assumed this was a limitation of ubuntu, but I've realised since the delay is the same across the board, regardless of the application, which makes me think it's a deliberate setting.

Am I right - and if so where can I alter it?

Software :: Why Do Windows Applications Start Faster

Jan 12, 2010

I noticed that on Linux, applications are much, much smaller but they take forever to start sometimes (namely, OpenOffice). However, MS Office starts up super fast, but I see it is huge (it needs 2GB to install).

Is there a trade-off between size and start time? If so, is it possible to "enlarge" some of my programs so they would start faster? I have plenty of unused disk space, and a few larger programs wouldn't really hurt.

Ubuntu :: Windows Loading Pages Faster Using Firefox?

Oct 1, 2010

Two very simmilar laptops connected to the same WiFi router loading the same web pages. Firefox on Windows does that for 3 secons, while Firefox on Ubuntu needs 1-3 minutes to load the same page. What could be the reason for this? Any idea how to fix it? The laptop with Ubuntu runs 10.04 LTS (lucid), Firefox is 3.6.10 and on any other WiFi network it loads the web pages really faster but why is much slower than Windows now?When testing the speed on URL...Ubuntu loads times faster than Windows. The WiFi router has been reseted. Firefox has been started in -safe-mode, both didn't help.

Ubuntu :: X-Windows: Pointer Moves Faster Horizontally Than Vertically?

Feb 7, 2011

I've set up the Apple Magic Trackpad with my dual-scren Ubuntu system, the screens of which give me combined screen resolution 3360x1050. It works basically, however the coordinate ranges are messed up, as follows.Moving my finger the bottom of the trackpad to the top, my pointer moves from bottom of display to top.However the same is true horizontally: From the left side of the trackpad to the right, the pointer moves from the left of the monitor A to the right of monitor B.Thus the speed horizontally is 3 times what it is vertically.How can I fix this? Even if I remove one monitor (no big deal) the pointer will still move 50% faster horizontally

Debian Multimedia :: Make KDE More Responsive And Faster ?

May 27, 2011

I am a GNOME user but because of the release of GNOME 3 i decided that i may have to start using KDE. So i installed KDE 4.6 from the qt-kde debian repository. It works more or less OK but i have a problem with the performance. It just doesn't feel as snappy as GNOME. For example if i have minimized Firefox when i maximize it it takes about a second for the window to draw and until then i just see and empty window. Or when i open nautilus it too takes a little to open and draw the window. Overall KDE seems a little unresponsive. Is this normal? And second, from time to time there seems to be huge performance issues - KDE suddenly becomes very slow - programs take a while to open, and the windows draw even slowlier than what i described previously. Also whenever there is a slowdown (like for example when i start a program) i hear some kind of scratching noises from a my laptop - like there is a heavy hard disk activity. I've heard that kind of noises before when doing something very demanding like compiling or archiving something.

Is there any way to make KDE more responsive and faster. I have disabled strigi and nepomuk.

I am running KDE on Debian Unstable with kernel 2.6.39-1-amd64 and NVidia driver 270.41.19 on a Thinkpad T61 laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo T9300, Nvidia Quadro NVS 140m and 4GB of Ram.

Debian :: Konqeror - Make It Load Webpages Faster?

Apr 29, 2010

I put the KDE NOIPV6 in the /etc/environment file, but nothing happened it seems.

The problem = Midori / other browsers are too unstable with Flash; but Konqueror is lightning-fast with Flash and apparently takes up the least resources too. But the problem with that is, the aforementioned 20 seconds to 2 minute web page load time, even though I have 5-8 MBps cable Internet.

Midori is a little slow too to load web pages, now that I think about it, but faster once I have first visited a domain.

Debian Configuration :: Can Make Openvpn Faster Like Rsync

Oct 22, 2010

I use openvpn to connect otherwise isolated machines, and use samba to share filesystems across the vpn, which works just fine.But I recently discovered that copying files using rsync -e ssh is so much faster than copying from a mounted filesystem - like about 5 times faster.I've got comp-lzo enabled in both server and the client, at least I think I have, the directive is there in both the server.conf and the client.conf files, but how do I check that it's active?Does anyone know if I can make openvpn behave more like rsync, because copying is easier than rsyncing?

Fedora :: CPU Speed Slower Than In Windows?

Jul 29, 2011

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.

Fedora Installation :: Install Via Ethernet - Windows Vista

Apr 14, 2009

I have a laptop on which I would like to install Fedora 10. As the laptop has a broken CD drive I'm looking for a way to install it somehow else.

As I have a second PC with Windows Vista and a VMWare installed, I was thinking if that could help me in any way?

Is there a way how I can transfere Vista Business into a server and my Laptop can install it from there?

Also I could manage to get the ISO on the Laptops HDD (which is currently Windows XP), but haven't found a way how I can install it as I mounted the ISO to a CD drive, can access the files but windows xp wont let me install it from there.

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows Doesn't Connect To The Ethernet Either

Aug 8, 2010

I wanted to test 10.04 and downloaded Wubi to do so. Normal setup, it automatically picked the 64-bit version. After booting into Wubi, installing my ATI drivers and restarting it did no longer connect to my ethernet. A few reboots didn't help so I went back to Windows for troubleshooting.

However now Windows doesn't connect to the ethernet either. It's plain dead, Windows doesn't find any connections and the modem doesn't light the Ethernet cable LED. The modem itself works fine with wireless devices. I have now tried everything including uninstalling Ubuntu, system restore, driver rollback, driver update, BIOS default settings, a different cable, a different modem etc.

This is a 64-bit specific issue because I tested the 32-bit version of Wubi 10.04 a few months ago without problems.

Windows 7 x64
Wubi 10.04 x64
Gigabyte P55-UD3 with onboard Realtek RTL8111D LAN.

I'd like to get out of this without Ubuntu effectively having broken my hardware and my trust in it.
