Networking :: Slow Initial Connection To Websites ?

Mar 18, 2011

My internet connection is pretty fast, but the initial connection to websites take about 4-10 seconds. Sometimes I even get a "connection timed out" error. Once and if the connection is made, the website loads up pretty quickly. I have no problems with internet speed otherwise as I get pretty good speeds for downloads and torrents.

Chrome shows "sending request" and Firefox shows "looking up" during this period of apparent inactivity.

It is not a DNS problem as I have switched DNS from my default to the OpenDNS servers. Besides, everything works fine on Windows with either DNS setup.

I have also tried switching off ipv6 by adding "alias net-pf-10 off" in modprobe.conf. I even switched off ipv6 in Firefox in about:config to no avail.

Oddly, wget seems to work fast and normally. And nslookup returns results almost instantly.

I am on Arch linux with a Broadcom wireless card.

Networking :: Diagnosing Connections: Slow Initial Connection?

Mar 28, 2010

I want to identify why my ISP is sometimes slow, and wonder how and what tools to use. The problem is as follows: While the lines are very fast, I experience that at times of day where there are presumably high traffic, a new initial connection is very slow and unstable. For example getting response from DNS is slow. And after getting the answer, getting response from a web server is also slow. Or sometimes there is no response at all, and I have to retry. Running a speed test will show high data rates. So it is only initial connection that is slow/unstable.

What is the explanation for these symptoms? Are there some tools and tests I can use to pinpoint the problem from home, without/before contacting the ISP?

Ubuntu Networking :: Initial Wireless Connectivity Slow?

Jan 9, 2010

I'm running Lucid Alpha 1. Installed it about two weeks ago. Until a few days ago, the wireless networking was the best I've witnessed on any o.s. However, after last Wednesday's updates, connectivity now lags about 10-30 seconds whenever I open any web-page or access the repositories via aptitude. Granted after it gets going, it's fine. I noticed this same behavior in 9.10. I tested my XP connection and found no problems. .

Fedora Networking :: Infiniband Cards - Slow Initial Ping

Aug 10, 2011

So after some period of inactivity, my FC servers with infiniband cards in them seem to go to sleep or something. If I login to the machine and try to ping other machines with IB interfaces, the first request takes much longer than the others. This is not so over Ethernet.

compute-4-12 ~]# ping ib-s0-1 (this is a solaris machine)
PING ib-s0-1.local (192.168.1.19) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ib-s0-1.168.192.in-addr.arpa (192.168.1.19): icmp_req=1 ttl=255 time=3.64 ms
64 bytes from ib-s0-1.168.192.in-addr.arpa (192.168.1.19): icmp_req=2 ttl=255 time=0.131 ms
64 bytes from ib-s0-1.168.192.in-addr.arpa (192.168.1.19): icmp_req=3 ttl=255 time=0.222 ms

compute-4-08 ~]# ping c4-7 (identical neighboring FC machine)
PING compute-4-07.local.local (10.255.255.187) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from compute-4-07.local.255.10.in-addr.arpa (10.255.255.187): icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=1.28 ms
64 bytes from compute-4-07.local.255.10.in-addr.arpa (10.255.255.187): icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=0.108 ms
64 bytes from compute-4-07.local.255.10.in-addr.arpa (10.255.255.187): icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=0.115 ms
64 bytes from compute-4-07.local.255.10.in-addr.arpa (10.255.255.187): icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=0.119 ms
64 bytes from compute-4-07.local.255.10.in-addr.arpa (10.255.255.187): icmp_req=5 ttl=64 time=0.180 ms

This issue does not only affect ping. I created a user that mounts his home directory over nfs over infiniband. ssh'ing in takes longer the first time as well. If I ssh with verbosity turned up all the way, I get a brief hang at "we sent a hostbased packet, wait for reply" (this is the primary symptom I'm trying to get rid of since we want home directories over nfs over IB (without the initial delay)).

Ubuntu Networking :: Maverick Wireless RT2800PCI - Keep Getting Disconnected And Loading Websites Is Really Slow

Nov 4, 2010

I just installed 10.10 for netbooks, and apparently it's using the RT2800PCI driver for my wireless NIC in my EeePC 901. That driver is causing havoc with my school network, I keep getting disconnected, and loading websites is really slow.

Now I know that 10.04 uses a different driver RT2860 which seems to work far better on this network.

How to change to the driver from lucid. Or does anyone know of an even better solution? I've heard rumors about something called ndiswrapper...

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.

Networking :: Does Connection To Box Slow To A Crawl?

May 2, 2011

I have a linux server that has seemingly random network slow downs. This server is mainly my dvr. I'm starting to think it's a hardware problem, but that's just a gut feeling. I don't really know how to determine if it isn't.

Slow summary:SSH, HTTP, VNC incoming traffic are all affected
Outgoing traffic seems ok. I haven't tested this as much.
Rebooting mostly helps.
Stopping/starting network doesn't help
Load average is below 1.0

Networking :: Internet Connection Really Slow In LAN

Dec 15, 2008

I use Slackware 12.1 and I have a big problem that I can't solve by myself. I'm connecting to a LAN where there are almost 20 PC connected, all with static IP.

my ip: 192.168.1.205
netmask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS server: 80.58.61.250, 80.58.61.254

I configured manually it but it doesn't works well. I set up the DHCP server on Windows 2003 so I tried to configure it with dhcp too. It gives addresses from 192.168.1.200 to 192.168.1.240 there are no PCs connected with DHCP at the moment, so my IP is only mine.

It takes a lot of time connecting to a internet web site! It's really strange because downloading a file the transferring rate is good, it takes some time starting, but it works normally.

Networking :: Slow Internet Connection

Jan 17, 2010

I set up my linux router as a simple NAT router. I use CentOS 5.4. When I set up ISP proxy IP in the browser of client PC, Internet access is fast. When I remove ISP proxy IP from the browser, Internet access is slow.

ISP use transparent caching but I can use manual caching as well. Clients on my network with transparent caching get slow internet access and using ISP proxy get fast internet access.

ISP announce that we can use transparent caching or manual caching.

So, I set up my linux router with squid. I set up cache_peer TAG point to ISP's proxy IP. But the problem is the same. Using my squid proxy is slow and using ISP proxy directly is fast. All other network settings are correct.

How can I improve my internet connection using transparent caching. I don't want to set up proxy IP address on all clients.

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.

Networking :: Wireless Connection Slow And Unreliable?

Sep 19, 2010

I just got a wireless card and I've been having connection issues under Linux. The chipset I have is a Ralink 2860 (the card itself is an Asus PCE-N13) and supports 802.11n speeds up to 300 mbps. I am connecting to a DLink DIR-655 router, which also supports 802.11n at 300 mbps. I get full bars when connecting to my router, and my router's connection information shows my computer connected as 802.11n with the signal at around 80%, but the data rate is usually around 5.5 mbps. (I've rarely seen it go up to 18 mbps) I can confirm this woefully slow speed with anything I try to do over the network. Additionally, my wireless connection will sometime be disconnected and network manager will often fail to connect. When it fails to connect, my router lists my comptuer with the correct IP address, so I know it is successfully connecting to the router and the router is accepting the connection, but network manager seems to not recognize this.

I am running Debian Squeeze (testing), but I have a custom kernel, which is 2.6.35 and is using Debian's kernel configuration. I have the newest firmware from Ralink's website, and I also tried the newest drivers, which made no difference. (I have since removed those drivers, since I'd prefer to use the drivers supplied with the kernel if possible, but I can install them again if necessary) I put this card in my main computer and booted under Windows, and it was able to connect with 100% signal (it's right next to the router) and at 300 mbps. I also tried it under Debian on my main computer (with the stock 2.6.33 kernel), but it only connected as 802.11g, and even at 100% signal it was only connected at 36 mbps. For comparison, my laptop with an 802.11g card and running Mac OS X can achieve the full 54 mbps at 84%.

I am have setup a temporary ssh server to reverse ssh to remote clients. When a client has an issue I have them reverse ssh to my server and then from my laptop or workststation connect to there workstation. The problem that I am having is when I connect to them from behind my firewall from my laptop the connection is really slow but when I connect to them from the firewall it is fast. I am using Firestarter which is simply a GUI for iptables. I am trying to figure out what iptables rule is causing the connection to slow down behind the firewall.

Ubuntu Networking :: Very Slow Connection Speeds But Okay On Win7

Apr 5, 2010

I am currently staying on a university campus in Taiwan. Internet on Ubuntu Lucid 64bit here is often painfully slow, except for connections to Taiwanese websites. I dual boot with Windows 7, and there is no problem there. For instance, I downloaded the same piece of software (Spideroak) on both Win and Ubuntu, with Ubuntu I had to try repeatedly as the download would not complete, and in the end it took several hours to download. On W7, it took 10 minutes. What is Windows and Ubuntu doing differently?

I tried disabling ipv6 for this session by running sudo sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1, as a number of posts mention improving connection speed that way, but no effect.

I know that websites from Taiwan are working well, because I am getting my Ubuntu updates from a Taiwanese mirror: updates are fast, except for packages in the 'partner' repos (presumably not loaded from the mirror) which take hours to load, if at all. I don't want to depend on Windows for large downloads... (I don't want to depend on Windows for anything).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Randomly Seems To Massively Slow Down

Nov 30, 2010

I am running the newest version of Ubuntu on my laptop. The connection randomly seems to massively slow down. After a speed test is run it registers at .05 download and Ubuntu crashes before it gets to upload. I reboot from the crash and it runs fine for a while, then it suddenly does the same thing. The connection is running fine on my Windows 7 desktop, I don't know what is going on. In transmission the upload speeds are running at ~100kbps though. If I try downloading a mere 400kb .torrent file it stops half way through, usually at 200-300kb done, downloading at 1.2kbps the entire time. This is getting very frustrating and I really don't want to go back to Windows.

Networking :: Received Data - RX - Errors And Very Slow Connection

Jun 22, 2010

I have a Webserver (Co-Location) and all runs fine ... since last week. Now there are a lot of RX-ERR shown in netstat and ifconfig. And when I try to upload a external website direct on the server for example via wget, it is very very slow and hangs very often.

RX packets:2919694 errors:990386 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:596420
TX packets:4231423 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

I have analyse the network but I was not able to find a problem. My hoster has checked the network and all looks fine. For example my hoster has plugged-in a pc in the same switch ... and was able to do wget (load external data, like websites) in normal speed.

Since last week my websites were delivered slower as before, too. It seemed there is a network-problem ... but how can I find it?

Actually I can install moduls ... but the server needs hours. So, if you knows a good command-line tool to analyse the network.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Connection With WMP600N Very Slow Or Non-existent

May 15, 2010

I have installed Fedora 12 OS which is using kernel 2.6.32.11-99.fc12.x86_64. I am using a Linksys WMP600N Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual Band card which has a Ralink chipset. I have installed the latest rt2860 driver which uses the 2.6.32.11-99.fc12.x86_64 kernel. If there is any other pieces of information that is need I can provide it.

Problem: I can use either the Ethernet connection which is built into my ABIT mother board or my PCI wireless card. My Ethernet connection works perfectly however; my wireless card comes up attaches to my wireless router; that's it. There is a strong signal, the WPA2 security password works correctly. I am able to ping my loop-back address and my DHCP IP address for my wireless card but I can not ping the router or anything outside of my box.

If I let the ping program run for a while and allow it to try to ping the router, after a period of time ~5minutes or so I will get several hits and then stop. The firewall does not change from my Ethernet connection to my wireless connection. The Wireless connection is a trusted interface in my firewall specifications. Questions/Thoughts:

Can I use the same OS provided routing table for my Ethernet connection for my wireless connection? Would the OS know which port to use by switching to a wireless connection (after reboot)? Do I need to somehow switch or bridge the port? Is the wpa_supplicant playing with my connection and opening it up and then shutting it down? Below are some netstat data: routing, interface table, statistics, and dmesg on the kernel driver rt2860.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Slow Connection / Drop Outs

Nov 17, 2010

I am new to fedora, but not so new to linux. I've got f13 installed on my netbook, and the speed and overall beter-ness? of it made me want to get it going on my desktop. I've installed, and have updated the kernel, and network manager (Along with a few other things). My problem is this; after about an hour or two I get a drop out, unable to reconnect. Until I use 'ifconfig wlan0 down > ifconfig wlan0 up' then it works great for about 10 minutes, slows down, and eventualy drops out. i updated networkmanager in the hopes it may have been that, but it really made only a slight difference.
