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 Networking :: Internet Download Speed Incredibly Slow ?

Jul 30, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Accessing Samba Shares Incredibly Slow From Win7

May 16, 2010

Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.

AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.

Ubuntu :: Internet Working Incredibly Slow?

Jun 18, 2011

I have been noticing recently that my net speed has been getting slower and slower. I have disabled IPV6, cleared all caches and cookies but am not seeing any great difference. Last week I installed Knoppix 6.4.4 to have a look at it, and was amazed at the speed of the net -- one major difference was a 10 Mb pdf I was trying to download. In maverick using Firefox the download failed 10 times at between 1.2 and 1.4 megs. In Knoppix it completed first time in about 4 minutes. I have compared page loading speed and pages load on average 6-8 times faster than in Ubuntu. I have not altered any other settings.

Ubuntu :: Virtualbox Incredibly Slow - Scratchy And Unresponsive

Mar 18, 2010

Has anyone had any issues when they freshly install Windows XP in VirtualBox?

I just created a system in vBox with an AMD x4 925 2.8Ghz Quadcore Processor (with AMD Virtualization on). I gave the system 3 cores, 3GB of RAM, 128mb video memory, turned off all acceleration and gave it a 60GB virtual drive.

Following installation I have noticed the vbox is unusable. I click on the start menu for example and it takes 3-4 seconds to show up. Furthermore, just moving the mouse shows a frame rate at, what I would guess, around 5 frames/sec.

This is strange as I have given this machine very good specs.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Desktop Edition - System Running Incredibly Slow

Jun 18, 2011

I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?

Fedora :: Kernel 2.6.35.12-88 - Scrolling The Browser Window Incredibly Slow

Apr 15, 2011

Is anyone else seeing high CPU usage with this new kernel while using Firefox 4? I didn't have this problem before this update. If I boot into the previous kernel there is no problem surfing the web with Firefox 4

This kernel update has made browsing the web very slow and scrolling the browser window incredibly slow to the point of frustration.

Should this be reported as a bug or an issue with the new kernel or has anyone already reported this issue?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Incredibly Slow HDD And Boot Time Increased

Mar 30, 2011

My hardware:
AMD Athlon X2 4800+ (2,5 GHz) + 2 GB DDR2 memory
MSI K9N V2 (nforce 520)
SAMSUNG HD250HJ (SATA, 250 GB)

I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2 with all the released updates are installed. I've got an Windows Xp SP3 on the same hard drive and it's works fine. S.M.A.R.T. says the hdd is 100%. A few days ago I realized that the boot time increased and the hard drive operations takes way too much time. So currently the boot sequence takes 11-14 minutes.

I've already tried to solve this problem but no effect:
1.) cleaned up the root directory to create more free space
2.) plugged the sata cable to another port
3.) changed from AHCI to IDE and reverse in BIOS settings
4.) added ahci, sata_nv into the /etc/sysconfig/kernel file and created a new initrd
5.) searched for problems in the syslog
Just to imagine how slow is currently the system/hdd:

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.

git clone is very very slow..This internet is capable of 630 kb/s and git is only cloning it at 30kb/s-80kb/s from git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-natty.git and I am trying to make a custom kernel. I am the IT for my company. And I am trying to make a new kernel for our linux server. I am still somewhat new to Linux, but I know for a fact over the several T1's we have fused it shouldn't be this slow.

Ubuntu Networking :: Browsing Via SSH Tunnel Very Slow

Jan 31, 2010

Browsing via SSH Tunnel very slow When browsing in firefox at work via proxy through ssh on my 8.04 server the speed is near dial up. I have compression enabled, tried restarting ssh, and rebooting the server but it remains so sluggish. At home the connection is quick but the speed is lost in translation once I ssh in. I also tried adding "UseDNS no" to the ssh config but that did not help with the slow login or any other speed issues.

Ubuntu Networking :: Why Is Internet Speed Is So Slow?

Feb 10, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Slow In 10.04

Apr 30, 2010

Since I've updated from 9.10 to 10.04, I'm having some difficulties to use the internet. Even though I can connect to my home wireless network, the connection is really slow. I've got a Dell Inspiron 1545, and here comes the configuration:

Code:
sussa@sussa-laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C network
[sudo] password for sussa:
*-network
description: Wireless interface
product: Wireless WiFi Link 5100
vendor: Intel Corporation

Apart from that, I must say that Ubuntu 10.04 is fantastic. Easy to use, elegantly designed and working perfectly on my PC

Ubuntu Networking :: No More Dropping Connection But Really Slow

May 10, 2010

Lately I have been using my window's partition due to the fact that 10.04 drops my wireless signal every 5-10 minutes, but today I downloaded the new updates and that seems to have fix the issue with the dropping of the wireless connection. Now the only problem is the internet is so slow when trying to go to webpages it times out. I have opened up firefox gone to about:config and changed the necessary lines, but still dreadfully slow.

Ubuntu Networking :: Occasionally Very Slow Web Browsing

Jul 6, 2010

my computer is very slow to view regular web pages, and generally fails to load them. It seems to be a problem specifically with webpages - I can work over SSH, use email, transfer files over FTP connections, with no noticeable problems, but any regular website (including this one) can take an age to load. This happens regardless of the browser I use (at least, it happens on Firefox, Opera, and Chromium), and regardless of wired or wireless connection (though admittedly I've not tried using a wired connection very much). As far as I can tell, it can also happen on any website. It is specific to linux - my computer is dual-boot ubuntu 10.04/Windows XP, and there is no networking problem when I use Windows.

Ubuntu Networking :: Satellite Internet - Should It Really Slow This Much?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm staying out at a friend's house in the middle of nowhere, and she's been complaining about how slow her satellite internet has been of late. So I decided I'd take a look. If I ping my server at home, I end up with these statistics:

Code:
// @ 1 ping probe per second
60 packets transmitted, 36 received, 40% packet loss, time 59172ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 639.915/799.882/1209.119/104.763 ms, pipe 2

Compare that to driving 70 down the highway tethered to my cell phone: I see latencies in the 3000's and out-of-order packets, but practically none get dropped. If you ramp it up to 5 ping probes a second, the loss climbs to around 75%. To me, that seems quite excessive. The interesting thing is that all the packet loss seems to be occurring on download traffic - I set up tcpdump to monitor the packets on my server during the ping test, and all but 1 of the pings to got there, so the other 25 lost packets wondered astray on the return trip. I tested it with the client directly connected to the modem (it had the public IP).

So I'm quite certain that it's the satellite link itself that is the issue here. I've attached the complete logs from the ping test for your enjoyment. Of course, TCP corrects for the loss of packets, but with a latency of 800ms, resending packets takes a significant amount of time, not to mention services like DNS that just wait for a timeout to elapse (which is usually way too long). It can take 15 seconds to load a webpage. So I guess my question is, should it be this bad? I know satellite is generally terrible, but I didn't expect to see such rampant packet droppage.

Ubuntu Networking :: SLOW Updates And Internet ?

Sep 11, 2010

I just installed dual boot Ubuntu 10.04 on my WinXP laptop. The laptop is a Compaq v2552us.

In windows mode, the internet works plenty fast.

In Ubuntu, I can't download a single update for hardware drivers or for ubuntu (it says there are 74 though).

It starts to DL, but max speed is about 800B/s, but that only last for a couple seconds before it switches to unknown. I am connected to my wireless router via cable, can't even get wireless to work (I suspect the aforementioned hardware drivers, which is why I need this to work).

Ubuntu Networking :: Wi-Fi LED Flickers And Has Slow Connection

It has a button next to the power to show the wireless status, on or off. If I turn the laptop on with the wireless active, it keeps flickering between on and off states, and gives me a really slow connection.It happened in 10.04 if I booted with the wireless activated, but could be fixed by resetting the wireless. Now in 10.10, it happens constantly, and I just wont stop.My laptop is a CompaQ Altec Lansing running 64 bit.

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow Lookup Of Web Sites

Nov 9, 2010

For a while now I've got a problem when surfing the internet. Everythings fine for let's say 15 minutes and then all of a sudden it takes about 1 minute to load a -random- page, once it has loaded, everthing's fine again. Transmission does not seem to have this problem. I'll double check this. Looking thru the forum I found the following "solutions". None of which has worked for me up to now:

- disable ipv6 in firefox
- set method under network manager to "Automatic (DHCP) addresses only" and use google or OpenDNS dns servers
- change resolv.conf (comparable to the second one I guess)
