Just want to make sure I am not crazy. I am downloading the upgrade right now (9 p.m. time Eastern U.S.), and not getting much faster than 31 kbps on the download. Regular web pages are loading quickly as normal. Are the Canonical servers overtaxed?
Ran the update manager, system was pretty much up to date, only a few files to download. Was it ever SLOW. Most of the time I can download from other sites about 650 kB/s. The update was around 10 kB/s and slower sometimes. What is wrong? Just a lot of people updating at the same time?
I am at a university where my bandwidth is severely capped. I can start several other computers near me and download at the limited speed simultaneously. Is there any way for me to share the download between the computers to get the cumulative speed?
I have a 18Mg download speed internet connection and surfing the web is supper fast, streaming video is decent, etc. when I go to download a file 100 mg or so really anything my download speed will clime to about 1.3mg and then start dropping and level off at about 32 kb or lower. if I pause and restart the download it will jump back up again for a while and then come back down. if i constantly pause and restart the file will download in roughly the same amount of time as if the connection was working properly.
Ubuntu version 10.04. until day before yesterday, everything is working fine but now specific problem arises that is my internet download become 1/4th than usual.
Heres the story: i have internet (LAN) connection of 512 kbps. when i tries to download anything, using (syneptic, firefox default downloader, jdownloader) the download speed i get is 10-20 kb/s which should be 50-60 kb/s. the limited downloading speed is only when i tried to download a file; browsing n online video content play at max. speed i.e. 50-60 kb/s. i m using net speed panel applet to monitor current net speed.
Here is something unexpected: during downloading, when i start a game(openTTD or battle of wesnoth), downloading speed accelerated to max. (50-60 kb/s) but when i close the game, it drop back to 10-20 kb/s. so definitely this isn't the problem with the net.
I am having problems with download speeds in Ubuntu 9.10. Downloads start at a healthy speed and then drop to almost zero. This affects apt-get install, Pan newsreader etc. With apt-get install if I terminate the download (with [Ctl][C]) and restart it I get another burst at high speed then again back to almost nothing. It makes updates a nightmare. With Pan newsreader I get high speed for most files but when downloading some of the larger files the speed drops right back to almost nothing after a while. I am on wired ethernet (no wireless). Typically I will get about 1.1MB before the speed drops - although I think it may be a function of time rather than data. I am talking to my ISP via a Netgear FWAG114 router and a NetComm NB5 ADSL modem operating in bridge mode. Although a number of users appear to have experienced very similar symptoms here I haven't found an answer that works.
i realised that although before when i had windows7 my relative download speed was around 5.0 MB/s ( i have a 50MB virgin connection)now with ubuntu 10.10 im limited to only 2.8MB/s or somewhere around there.
First i tested my wireless speed on another laptop (with windows 7) on the same network and the speed was as i said around 5.0MB/s sometimes even more. So i thought it was only chrome that i was using at that point.However, this download speed limitation appears in jdownloader as well as in firefox and i guess the whole system.
SO im wondering if there is any way to set up the speed limit on the system and if there is, how should do i go ahead with this change,through the terminal or through preferences?
It sounds weird but on Linux I can't find a browser that allows to set a download speed limit. I found an extension for Firefox but it works only on Windows. I know the existence of download managers like d4x, wget, jdownloader, etc... but some downloads can only be done by browser. I know trickle too but if I want to change the speed limit I have to 'restart' the command (interrupting the current download). Then I didn't find an extension for Chromium.
Using 10.04 my download speed is so slow, with Opera browser(tried FF too)using places like rapidshare, I get 70/80 kbs , but on windows machine on same connection/line, i get 500/700 using same link,Did i miss something? Is this a firewall problem? or is it just me?
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. Screenshot-System Monitor.png Some additional info. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all available updates installed. The browser in use is Google Chrome.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop using the Wubi installer. Everything seems to be working fine except for my wireless connection. When I plug in my wired connection and test on speedtest.net I get download speeds of 20MB/second. However, when I switch to my wireless connection, I barely break 1MB/second. I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have scoured this forum, Google, everywhere I can think of to find a solution and none seem to work for me. I love Ubuntu but this might be a deal breaker...
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!
I am currently using Ktorrent on Ubuntu9.10, the torrents either have a slow download speed or have trouble establishing a connection with the tracker. I have no such problems when I was using utorrent on Win XP.
I have vonage phone service and two computers - currently using the vonage device which is essentially acts as a router with 2 phone ports. The trouble is, the vonage device splits the download speed among the two computers and the phone even when the second computer and the phone are plugged in but not actually being used. Is there such a thing as a router with phone ports that does Not do this?
I've noticed this happening on some servers that I manage. I'll be downloading updates around 300 kb/s - 500 kb/s and then out of nowhere it will drop to about 3 kb/s. It will stay here forever, if I let it. I then have to cancel (Ctrl-C) the updates and restart them. This happens over and over and over until I finally get the full download. Why does this happen?
I have been using u torrent in windows and I am not able to find a similar torrent client in ubuntu 10.10, I was using transmission bittorrent client, but it is not able to look for peers and seeds as utorrent does and even the download speed is very slow when compared to utorrent. Which is the best torrent client as powerful as utorrent?
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).
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 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.
how to speed up torrent download with transmission in fedora, i find it very slow, also the speed is only 51 kbps not more than that i get, so how to increase the download speed to 128 kbps. i'm using broadband connection.
I was a user of openSUSE 10.3. I used to get a decent speed in BitTorrent (using KTorrent 2.2.1) there, since I had earlier used Windows and the speed wasn't as good, even in Windows 7. Recently, I installed openSUSE 11.2 and found that I wasn't getting the good speeds in KTorrent. The overall performance was a fraction of what I used to get in the older Linux installation.
I decided to verify whether my suspicions were justified by again reinstalling openSUSE 10.3. When I did this, I was again able to get the great performance I used to get always with openSUSE 10.3 running KTorrent 2.2.1 I don't know what causes this, but I know that this sad thing really has happened. A newer version is actually not worth it! I hope my voice reaches the openSUSE developers and such bad incidences don't occur anymore.
What is the usual download speed for updates to the Debian system using the update option under the Administration tab? I am just getting 4700 B/s, but have 5 Mb/s DSL. Is this due to overload of Debian website?
I have a linux debian on a network connected to a router through a ethernet cord. My linux is hogging the network speed and the users of the other computers on the network aren't very happy. Is there a way to limit the download speed on only my computer?
I'd like to use tc and iptables to restrict the download speed. I understand this is know as policing. Are there some resources I could use to learn how to do this? I want to restrict on a per ip basis.
i've just moved to ubunt recently and i still dont know many good applications.i'm downloading a lot, when on windows i used free download manager for download manager and download torrent. free download manager has automatic speed adjustment, so when i browsing, the FDM reduce its speed that made my browsing not slow.is there any application for ubuntu which has automatic speed adjustment feature like FDM? at the moment, i'm using gwget as download manager and qbittorrent for download torrent. but these two apps doesn't have automatic speed adjustment.
