Networking :: Download Is So Slow / Why Is So - Increse It?

Jun 27, 2010

I'm having a major dilemma here. Up until about a week ago, my download speed was at a rather nice 160-180KB/s, and I was rather happy with that. But, it slowed down. A lot. now my max d/l speed is about 40KB/s. I download stuff a lot, so having this slow of a connection is torture for me. Oh, and on internetfrog.com on the speed test, it says my d/l speed is supposed to be about 321KB/s and for some reason it can't even detect my upload speed. Strange. Any ideas about it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Browsing - Fast Download ?

Feb 12, 2010

I'm using wlan and I'm behind a NAT firewall. Downloading with BitTorrent can reach speeds of 1,5MB/s, but browsing is incredibly slow. Chromium/Firefox seems to hang forever on "connecting.." or "waiting for". Sometimes pressing the reload button will speed it up. I have two Ubuntu boxes and they are the same way.

I don't get it, if downloading is so fast, how can browsing be so slow. Yes I have disabled ipv6 in grub and in Firefox, don't know how to do it in Chromium. Have 64-bit Ubuntu. Cnet wlan card using rt61pci module.

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Download Speeds And Isn't Connecting To The Internet

Aug 27, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu for a while (though I would not consider myself an "expert") and have just gone back to school. I live on campus and connect to the network through an ethernet cord. On Windows, the download speed is 1 Mb/s by default, but if you go through and configure the network card (turning off the auto-negotiation and setting the speed to 10, duplex full) the download speed will increase to 10 Mb/s, a considerable difference. So, I tried to do this in Ubuntu by opening the terminal and typing the following:

sudo ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 10 duplex full and all of a sudden, my computer isn't connecting to the internet. When I type: sudo ethtool -s eth0 autoneg on it suddenly starts working again.

Ubuntu :: Very Slow Download Speeds

Jun 29, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and my internet works fine except for my download speeds. In Windows, downloading the same file, it downloads at around 200kb/s but in Ubuntu, it hovers around 20kb/s and never tops 50kb/s. Any idea how I can fix this because I really don't want to go back to Windows but I may have to.

Debian :: Have Slow Download For Update / Speed This Up?

May 26, 2010

I am using debian(lenny) on a pc coexisting with windows. I use grub to decide which o/s to boot.

I picked debian, logged in as a regular user. I selected "Administration" under the "System" tab and then selected "Update Manager". I had to provide the root password.

I was asked to insert Binary DVD-1 and was told to use smart update. I did at which time 16 files begun downloading at between 4400 B/s and 4800 B/s from the Security server. It looks like it is downloading a new linux image.

Is there any way to speed this up?

Ubuntu Servers :: Slow Download Speeds From 10.10 32 Bit?

Mar 13, 2011

Whenever a client tries to download a file from my server via ftp, SAMBA, Teamspeak 3 File Transfer, etc., they report very slow download speeds, around 3-6 kb/s. If I try a ftp file transfer locally, the upload speeds are normal, but I still experience slow download speeds.

My server is connected to a router, which connects to the internet. All other machines connected to that router can upload and download files at normal speeds. It seems to be a server problem, I just don't know where to start.

Ubuntu :: Slow Download Speed On Wireless Connection

Jun 5, 2010

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.

Some additional info. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all available updates installed. The browser in use is Google Chrome.

General :: Installed Ubuntu 10.10 - Slow Download Speed

Feb 13, 2011

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!

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Download Speeds Seems To Be Slow

Oct 28, 2010

I have managed to compile and load the RaLink drivers for my wifi card and get an internet connection.My problem is that when I do a broadband speed test on using chrome I get about 1.5 Mbs and on my laptop (Windows 7 meh :-( ) its closer to 7Mbs. I was wondering if there are any other settings I can modify or tweak that could potentially change to improve this. or maybe a better way to test the through put of my connection?I downloaded the latest drivers for my device from Ralink and compiled new module, but I get a little confused on what settings to do and where it reads any configuration information from.

Also this may be off topic or thread, if so I apologise, but I am sure there is a quick answer to this and there is a lot of different information out there on where and how I load my new rt3562sta.ko module into the kernel on start up. As currently I am calling insmod on it manually every time I start up then the Network Manager picks it up and connects.

Networking :: Installed Ubuntu 10.04 And Networking Is Incredibly Slow

Aug 25, 2010

I have been a Linux user in the past for a good couple of years but I got back into gaming and left Linux for a while. Now after coming back to it, I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 and all networking just seems incredibly slow.

I've browsed the internet as much as I can and found those Firefox pipelining tweaks all over the place; trying them makes no difference whatsoever so I decided to take a temporary solution and resort to OpenDNS but even this feels obviously too slow for the broadband I have.

Not only with loading web pages in Firefox, I have also tried downloading files from the internet and trying Google Chrome. But neither of these were right either.

I'm almost 90% sure it's not my BTHomeHub that's causing the problems because when using Windows, it works just fine and internet speeds are perfectly normal. The only OS I'm having this speed problem with is Ubuntu.

I'm unsure as to what evidence/help I can post, pings, IPv4/IPv6 information or WiFi configurations?

Just wondering though, this seems to be a big problem with Ubuntu 10.04 so has anyone had and solved this problem before and returned their internet speeds to what they should be?

Ubuntu :: Slow Startup, Plymouth Not Showing, Slow Desktop Load?

May 3, 2010

I'm an Ubuntu user since Jaunty, and I've always upgraded my system (NOT fresh install). Everything went fine, but yesterday I upgraded to Lucid. My only concern -for now- deals with startup time. I'm a desktop user (Core2@3GHz) so I think I should boot in less than 10 seconds. Anyway, boot time is 30 seconds - not too much, but there is definetly something wrong with tools I don't know (ureadahead, plymouth, etc.). Attached is my bootchart: can anyone explain me what's wrong?

Also, I don't even see a plymouth Ubuntu themed bootsplash: I only see a blank (black) screen standing for seconds, then I see the bootsplash for less then half a second, then GDM appears :S Not crucial -I know- but how can I fix it? (I don't know if it's related, but I can see the animation at shutdown)Finally, GNOME desktop takes too long to load. I don't know why, but there are 15/30 seconds in between login sound and a usable desktop (with panels and icons, I mean).Please help me, I don't want to do a fresh install. Boot speed is not a dial with desktops - I know - but it can be a symptom that my system is a bit a messy (and I don't like it, since I installed Jaunty less then 1 year ago). (!Forgot! I also installed grub2 by hand

Ubuntu :: USB Disk - Slow Transfer Speeds And Slow System?

Apr 17, 2011

Whenever I transfer a movie into my 16GB USB flash disk, my whole system becomes windows-like and unusable!

When i drag the file(s) into the USB disk folder, it starts out fine and pretty darn fast (25mb/sec) then slowly decreases until it's unbearably slow (3m/sec) and as a side effect my whole system starts deteriorating. I basically have to wait for the file to finish transferring before i can use my desktop again!

This has been happening with every version since Karmic (all 64bit)- I put up with it because I don't use the USB stick that much.. but lately it's been my go to source for transfering large files to/from work.

Fedora Networking :: Very Slow Ethernet In 11 X64 (NFS)

Jul 26, 2009

I just installed a fresh copy of Fedora 11 x64 on my Dell XPS M1530. Last week I purchased a NAS device and backed up my entire Fedora 9 x86 system on it. I have an NFS mount that I'm restoring my data from.

The first thing I noticed after installing is that downloading of very large files (several MB to several GB) over my wired network is extremely slow. What I'm seeing is that it will download 3 - 5MB then pause for several seconds and download another few MB and so on. If I download a lot of small files from the NAS device it works fine and very fast. If I upload large files to the NAS they upload fast. If I boot into Vista and download large files from the NAS it is fast. If I use my wifi card to download large files from the NAS it downloads OK (not too fast but it is wifi so naturally slower).

In Fedora 9 I did not have this issue. I'm not sure if the issue is specific to NFS or if it is will all large files via the ethernet port (I don't have a way to test at the moment). lspci says 09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 12). dmesg doesn't indicate any issues.

Fedora Networking :: Having Slow WLAN On 15?

Jun 16, 2011

I installed Fedara 15 yesterday. I was running Fedora 13 before. Since I did the fresh install, my wireless network runs really really slow, i.e. a few KBs every 30 seconds whereas it ran at full speed in F13. I couldn't find the reason for it. I now tried the live-CD for Fedora 14 and it runs at full speed out of the box (whereas F15 is slow even with all updates installed).
Does somebody know a solution?

Laptop: Lenovo X201
Network Card: Ultimate-N 6300

I gathered uname, iwconfig, lspci and dmesg output for both, Fedara 15 and Fedora 14. But as the number of links is limited here in the forum they're all linked here: [URL]

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Connection Over LAN?

Jan 9, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu Karmic on my desktop machine which is connected to my wireless router (via LAN cable).

I have two laptops on the LAN as well. One is my wife's Windows 7 laptop and the other is my Ubuntu Karmic laptop.

They both connect wirelessly to the LAN and all three computers have static IP addresses assigned.

So here's the issue. The desktop serves the laptops over the LAN with Samba file sharing, SSH, VNC and DAAP.

From the Windows 7 laptop, the connection over the LAN is fine. I generally use it to connect to the Samba shares and occasionally use it for VNCing to my Desktop's....desktop. It is fast and responsive.

From the Ubuntu laptop though, everything seems very slow. Connecting to the samba shares results in a wait of at least 30-60 seconds, even if they have only recently been accessed. Once it has connected (i.e. once the share opens up and you can see files) actually opening the files themselves is delayed too, but not to the same extent.

Also, connecting to the desktop via VNC is intolerably slow, with mouse movements being so delayed that it is almost impossible to click on anything.

SSH takes a long time to connect too (up to 30 secs) but obviously once connected it is fine. In a similar vain, FreeNX connection takes a long time to connect but once the desktop has loaded it is fine too.

I can use FreeNX instead of VNC but actually like using both for different functions. I understand VNC is slower than FreeNX but over a 100Mbps LAN connection I wouldn't expect it to be slow at all.

This laptop used to be a Windows Vista/Win7 laptop prior to being replaced with Ubuntu and it was able to connect to the server with no speed problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: NAS Slow When Using Fstab

Jun 18, 2011

I am using my NAS with settings in fstab, but then I have only 4.4MBytes/sec.

However, when I open computer->Network ->Windows-network->WORKSPACE->CH3MNAS, then I have a speed of 18MByte/sec.

I notice a directory ~/.gvfs/volume_1 op ch3mnas... but when I restart the PC, this directory is gone.

It only is there after I use Nautilus first.

Also, I see some directory called smb://ch3mnas/volume_1

Now I am totally confused... how to get the fast network speed automatically at boot of my PC?

WHy is this hidden inside ~/.gvfs/.? ... I prefer something like /home/nas

Ubuntu Networking :: VPN Is Ridiculously Slow

Jul 26, 2011

I am currently connecting to a US university VPN during my stay in a foreign country.After a lot of manual tweaking (creating my own connection in /etc/ppp/peers and modifying ip routes), I finally managed to make it work.However, it is ridiculously slow. If I connect via my normal internet connection (actually PPPoE, sits on ppp0), I get about 250 kB/s.Ironically, pings to my VPN server through my VPN take longer than pings going through my normal internet connection.I can provide info from netstat or route or my VPN config if requested.
