I am experiencing very slow speed with the Intel 5300AGN on a Dell Studio XPS notebook and the iwlagn driver. I'm using Fedora 12 with all the latest updates available. When connecting to a G network with WPA2 security, everything goes fine at "normal" speed. When connecting to a N network with WPA2 security, the download speed falls between 0 k/s and 20 k/s max. The connection speed (as stated by Network Manager and iwconfig) is between 0 kb/s (?) and 11 Mb/s during the same session. I'm can't connect through ssh or download with scp (stalled). Web pages take a lot of time to render.
When connecting to the same N network on Window 7, everything runs fine enough. Every N network I try is the same story. Works fine on windows, badly on F12..
I had a F14 samba server working flawlessly now for a quite time. Unexpectedly about a month ago the write speed slowed down around 64kbit/s and that's really slow. I haven't changed any configs, only updated the server. I've troubleshooted this from many angles: -It is not a network issue because sftp writes are good. -It is not a RAID1 issue because write speed from another directory (locally) are good. So basically samba is the only thing left.
Here's example from smb.conf: [MyShare] comment = My share path = /mnt/RAID_share writeable = yes browseable = yes writelist = +smbuser

I have the following nasty issue:I am using fedora 12 and I use vpn for working remote.When I browse the internet the speed is very slow!even when I do a yum update it downloads the packages with max 100kb. if I drop the vpn connection I download the packages with 1Mbdo you know what the problem could be? i created the vpn connection using the network manager...it is a regular pptp connection for the vpn!
I've just installed F12 64bit on my notebook. Everything works great. Only problem I'm having at the mo is my WLAN is slow at DNS resolution. On wired it works fine. I know it's not my access point as it is part if my router and I've rebooted it a few times. My other wireless notebook (Windows 7, Intel 3945ABG) doesn't have the same issue, and this notebook didn't when on Windows 7. I'm using OpenDNS as my forwarders.When I open a URL in Firefox (3.5.5) it opens the site immediately on wired. On wireless it will sit for 3-4 seconds before opening the site saying looking up .................. Once on the site browsing behaves normally.Anyone else having similar issues?
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 have very suboptimal Internet speed in Wifi with Ubuntu. Normally in WIndows 7 I get download speeds up to 800 KB/s and a very fast Wifi experience, but in Ubuntu I get 100KB/s maximum and web page load speed is very extremely slow. Also, pinging to AP often gives very high response times and a lot of lost packages while in Windows they are very low and none packages are lost. I have a Netgear wg111v3 which worked out of box when I installed Ubuntu but always with this problem. It is updated and I've reinstalled Ubuntu many times..
Also I forgot to say that in Ubuntu the connection goes down very often and sometimes will not connect again until I reboot. Again in Windows never happened that. Motherboard: GA-MA74GM-S2H CPU: AMD Athlon 64X2 dual core 2 GB RAM Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit Wireless adapter Netgear wg111v3 USB .....
We have a server and we have instales an Open suse 10.3 on it. We created a Samba server also. Made to share folder, that we acces from network from other computers that have xp.
The problem is if we try to copy from server it is very slow only 100-300kb/s. The strange thing is that if i copy 1 file then its slow but if i start to copy another one the speed gos up to 10-15mb/s. Evry time i want to copy somethin or install from that server i need to start another copy. If i copy from a comp to that server the speed is normal only if i copy from server its slow.
I've been using Ubuntu 8.04 for about a year and the wireless has been fine but now it's gone screwy and I can't figure out why. This has happened on my laptop and wife's who uses Ubuntu Hardy also. The speed drops to almost 0 mb/s whenever the signal strength is less than 95%.
It isn't the internet connection as vista (I dual boot) works fine below 95% signal strength. To get the internet speed to be at a level that can load an internet page, I have to within 3 feet of the router!! Both of the laptops don't use ndiswrapper, the internet connected straight away from a fresh install.
I'm experiencing slow speed transfer between two wireless connected laptops running ubuntu 9.10. Using SSH to tranfer files between these two laptops, which connect to the internet via a wirelesss router, with good speed. This is why I'm surprised by this low speed : 52.3 KB/s, averaging 3 hours and 31 minutes for a 700 Mb movie. Is there any way to make this faster ?
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?
In mi fstab file I mount a smb file server at boot. The code is: //<ip address>/data /home/eng-2/NAS smbfs credentials=/home/eng-2/.smbcredentials,dir_mode=0775,gid=1000,uid=1000 0 0 Transfer rate to the server is approx 100 KB/s Whilst transfer rate from the server 16 MB/s If I mount it from Places>connect to server. Both to and from speeds are 16 MB/s. Why is it so slow when mounted through fstab?
I am hoping someone can help me I setup a brand new ubuntu 11.04 64bit system with:-AMD Phoenom 840 (3.7GHz overclocked) 8GB DDR3 RAM.WD20EARS x 4madmin (RAID5) SetupFor some reason I cannot get the write speed above 15mb/s & I have tried modifying the cache_Stripe_size from 256 to 8192.My read speeds are great burst at 120mb/s & stable at about 60mb/s.The only other possiblility is it could be my HDs which I read causes slow writes not sure if thats true though. point me in the right direction so I can fix this issue as I don't want to move to the dark side (Windows) .
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.
Does anyone know if the Yum fastestmirror plugin only makes decisions based on latency to pick the best host or does it measure bandwidth? On my laptop for the last few weeks I've been getting super slow yum updates (3.5kB/sec), when I force it to use the baseurl it runs as fast as I'd expect (160+KB/sec).
So the fastestmirror plugin doesn't seem to work unless maybe it's measuring latency as fast but the actual download speed is slow. If so, fastestmirror plugin should really take both into account.
I have problems with my network speed when i ping my proxy server I end up getting a high packet loss generally more than 30%.I have tried to use various network monitoring softwares like etherape, wireshark, tcpdump but I am not able to get to the bottom of the problem.basically I am trying to find out where the lost packets are going.
A lot of people have the problem to find themselves with Lucid Lynx 10.04 and experience massive issues when connecting to wireless - me too. As a service, here some relevant links which promise relief:
I tried all of them, and none reliably worked. Every solution which required re-association wtih the AP helped for some time, but nothing helped for long. First, don't let yourself fool by the disable IPv6 trap - while it is "enabled" it is acutally not used by Lucid! I have a clean install of Kubuntu 10.04 on an AMD64 Laptop with Broadcom STA driver: 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03) However I can reliably stabilize my connection for some time either by manually disabling WiFi with the hardware switch or disabling WiFi by software means and re-activating. This brings speed at par with Kubuntu 9.10 until some time. Can anybody confirm this behaviour?
I am currently using fedora 12. My question is why is the speed for my yum and rpm are very slow. Something like Flash Player 10 couldn't even load after being installed. If I downloaded the rpm, the speed is like normal but if I yum it. The ESA took like >1,000,000 sec..or whatever..The point is it does seem like something has happened to my yum/rpm function. I can download and surf the web as usual. I just can't get any add-on such as the Flash Player 10. I can only use the basic already provided by Fedora.
I tried: su - yum clean all rpm --rebuilddb yum update but I am still unsure what type of RPM issue I am facing.
I am having a very weird problem, of which I have never heard before. The problem, shortly (I will give details in the following), is that the copy speed between the partition in which I am running my Fedora and another partition where I store backup data is 50K/s, which is extremely slow (it has been usually around 10M/s, almost 200 times faster).
My laptop is a HP Pavillion Dv7 2080 ep, in which I have two disks of 250G. One of the disks is partitioned between two operational systems, Fedora 14 64 and Windows 7 64, and the other disk contains the above referred partition where I store my backups (lets call it backup disk). The problem happens ONLY when I try to copy anything from my home in Fedora to the backup disk. I first thought it could be a problem in the backup disk. Then I login into the windows and made a copy of some AVI files (3G approx) to the backup disk, which went normally, within a few seconds, thus eliminating this possibility. I try therefore to make the inverse process, a copy from the backup disk into my home folder in Fedora. It went normally, copying 4 G also within few seconds, actually with an excellent speed of 50M/s. After searching in google, I saw some people also complaining of slow copy speed (although they had 7M/s, more than 100 times faster than what I have now), and one cause could be that the source file system (in my case the Fedora home folder) would be near its full capacity. I therefore eliminate everything that I could, around 15G, and now I have like 20G of free disk space, which I think is more than enough for everything. However, the problem persists. Some people also said that it could be the type of files and/or amount of data. I therefore tried several kinds of files (from raw data files to AVI and RMVB regular video files), and several amounts of data (from single files with a few Megas to folders with 20G) and in all cases I had the same unacceptably low copy speed of 50K/s.
It seems to be a problem in the software, caused by the updates, since until 10 days ago it was everything ok. However, I usually make the updates whenever they appear but make my backups much less frequently. Therefore I don't know for sure what has changed in Fedora through the updates since the last backup I made, when everything was working fine.
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.
Does any one have a way to speed up the internet on Fedora 12? I have a dual boot system with Vista x64 on the flip-side, and my wireless connection there is just fine. But when I get on this side, it goes back to the dial-up days (yes I said the DU word). yum updates seem to be just fine, and e-mail seems to be fine. just firefox is slow. And now that I put the x64 Flash in (thanks to leigh123linux), with that working too it seems even a little slower again.
I am running Fedora-13 64 bit on my Dell Laptop, The same Laptop has Windows-7 as well (dual boot system). I have chosen ext3 filesystem while installing fedora. The file transfer speed in Fedora-13 over the network to my network drive comes out to be not more than 5MBPS.Where as in Wndows-7 I am getting the speed of around 10~12 MBPS. Also I found that copying files in USB flash drive is very slow than in Windows-7 . What could be the problem? To add it , I have another Laptop Running Ubuntu-10.04 , which also performs network transfers at 10~12 MBPS. So its just the fedora-13 who has this problem. As far as I remember this was not the case with Fedora-12
I want to connect to a 300mbit network (802.11n). With Windows (the same Computer) I am able to connect with full speed, but with Ubuntu Maverick (64bit), and a lot of other distros I tested, I am only able to connect with 54mbit. The builtin wireless network card is an Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (rev 35). Is this a driver Problem? I updated to kernel version 2.6.37-rc2 via ppa sources, but with no luck. I tried to extract the windows driver and started it with ndiswrapper, but i properbly made somethng wrong, because the card did not show up, though ndiswrapper said adapter available... oO?
When i try to copy files from my samba server (Ubuntu 9.10) to my windows seven media center, the speed is extremely slow. So slow that is better to download 100mb file from the internet, than from my lan. And on my lan, every card and switch is at 1000 mbps speeds on cat5 cables. And from XP or other linux machine
I just installed ubuntu as my primary OS, but I have the disk with XP on it and I don't want to go back, but I need faster network connectivity. I have a T60p with Intel Gigabit jacked into my Gigabit router which also has my desktop (running XP) and my NAS. If I FTP files from my NAS (or SCP), I get transfer speeds around 250-500 KB/s (which is not very fast). On this same switch, from my XP desktop I get transfer speeds around 12 MB/s. I get the same speeds using my 802.11n card (Atheros) as with the ethernet NIC (250-500 KB/s).The drivers for the ethernet card and the atheros card are e1000e and ath9k respectively.I have disabled IPv6. Since the problem occurs using either interface, I am just going to concentrate on fixing it for the Ethernet interface (since I believe it to be a systemwide problem).
skinnersbane@albert:~$ sudo ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Clearly my card is running at Gigabit, but why the bad transfer speeds? I am using filezilla for FTP (technically FTPES). I closed every other program. My CPU utilization does seem high and I wonder if this is part of the problem. I had no problems with throughput using either interface in Windows XP just one week ago.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 from a USB key (16GB). Overall I'm pretty fine with it but there are a few problems I am having. It seems to be very slow. In particular, Firefox and Pidgin freeze every now and then, before becoming active again. The same thing also happens for other applications such as Rhythmbox, Gedit, and the terminal. Additionally my start up and shut down times are horrible (worse than when I use Vista and Ubuntu 8.04). I was wondering if there is something with my install or if this is all due to the fact that I am running from a USB. I don't think it's the USB since I ran 8.04 from a USB HDD (55GB) and didn't have any problems with speed.
