Ubuntu :: Internet Very Slow - Saying Download Rate: Unknown

Apr 12, 2010

I am trying to sort out a problem with my mum's Ubuntu 9.10. On my laptop, the internet is working fine and is really really fast but on my mum's laptop it is very slow. I tried doing an update and they were unsurprisingly slow as well. I need when I tried to install, they took ages, they kept saying download rate: unknown.

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 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.

Programming :: Unknown Filter Error - Option Rate Unparsable

Feb 21, 2010

I am getting this error "Unknown filter "police", hence option "rate" is unparsable. This is in Linux Kernel 2.6 which is compiled with the "policing" option enabled in Qos (Kernel config). The error seems to be coming from the file tc.c in iproute2/

static int parse_nofopt(struct filter_util *qu, char *fhandle, int argc, char **argv, struct nlmsghdr *n) {
__u32 handle;
if (argc) {
fprintf(stderr, "Unknown filter "%s", hence option "%s" is unparsable
", qu->id, *argv);
return -1;
} if (fhandle) {
struct tcmsg *t = NLMSG_DATA(n);
if (get_u32(&handle, fhandle, 16)) {
fprintf(stderr, "Unparsable filter ID "%s"
", fhandle);
return -1; }
t->tcm_handle = handle; }
return 0; }

This is called from get_filter_kind() which is called from tc_filter_modify(), called from do_filter(), from do_cmd() from main()...all in tc.c. Is this a known "bug" in iproute2+2.6 as the 2.4 Kernel works with the same settings?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Slow Refresh Rate In Videos

Feb 27, 2011

I've got an annoying problem with refresh rates in everything to do with videos. Basically, anything that requires a quicker refresh than using a word processor. This includes flash movies on a website to playing an offline video. In website flash, the video tends to, well flash on occasion. The other sort of thing is pan lines or whatever they're called in videos like a simple .avi movie.

I currently have the nVidia 270.29 drivers installed for my GTS450 card, but this was happening with older versions. My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 943 which is detected. The resolution and refresh rates are sort of fixed on auto configuration. What I mean is, is that I can use the drop down menu to change the resolution to a manual option, and then it allows me to select a refresh rate, but only limited to 60 and 75Hz.

This setting will stay as is until I need reboot or restart Ubuntu. Even clicking on Save to X Configuration File is not a keeper. However, here's another problem. Doesn't matter which refresh rate is selected, I still get the above problems. The same resolution and refresh rate yields no problem under Win7 which I've dual-booted with.

Ubuntu :: Slow Transfer Rate On Ext2 Partition (10.04 64 Bit)?

I would like to know if it is normal to experience 10MB/s data transfer rates during copying between partitions on my local hard drives (Toshiba 250GB 5400rpm SATA) while having three times faster (30MB/s) transfer rates between local partitions and USB drives (Kingston 8GB).

Networking :: Slow Transfer Rate Between 2 Gigabit Devices?

Mar 2, 2011

I am struggling trying to understand the reason for a fairly slow data transfer rate between two machines. ( tried point to point and also via a 1 gb switch )
One is nfs/http/ftp server ( with raid1 and lvm on top ), the other one my desktop pc. Both OS with default options, no changes to kernel in proc or other sort of thing.

Hardware is full recognized and perfectly working: The server has 4gb ram, Intel Core 2 Duo CPUE6850 @ 3.00GHz, 1000Mb/s NIC card and Lucid 10.04 64 bit, 250Giga Hard disk. The client has 3gb ram, Intel Core 2 CPU 6320 @ 1.86GHz, 1000Mb/s NIC card and Ubuntu Maverick 32bit , 150Gb Hard disk.

Raw data is good:
gettons@gettons-desktop:~$ iperf -c MYSERVER
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to MYSERVER, TCP port 5001

Debian :: Slow Frame Rate With Fullscreen Video In Browser?

May 27, 2011

I'm using Squeeze Gnome.

When I watch videos within my browser, they play fine until I expand it to full screen, then the frame rate slows way down.

I've been reading related posts, If I install the gecko media player, will that solve this problem?

Ubuntu :: Slow Frame Rate With Radeon HD 6450 And Proprietary Drivers Under Natty 11.04?

May 3, 2011

I just upgraded to 11.04 from 10.10. I have a Radeon 6450 with 1GB of video RAM which should give me pretty good performance, but I'm only getting a measly 60 fps with the new ATI diver (11.4). I installed like this, making sure I'd removed the open source driver:sh ati-driver-installer-11-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/nattyThen installed the debs and ran an aticonfig --initial. The module builds and installs fine:tnugent@translocon:~$ fglrxinfo display: :0.0 screen: 0OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6450OpenGL version string: 4.1.10666 Compatibility Profile ContextBut this is not good:

tnugent@translocon:~$ fgl_glxgears
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 54.800 FPS

Networking :: Up-/download Rate For A Single Host (from Shell)?

Jan 25, 2011

I have a slave node uploading all kinds of backups to my server in the internet. Now I would like to display the actual upload and download rate to this server (not the entire nic-traffic, any protocol) in a small php-page for easy monitoring.I had a look at quite some monitoring tools and the one which kind of offers what I am looking for is iftop with a filter on the IP of my server. As I would like to periodically update a file with the actual rates, an interactive program won't do. A possibility would be to filter the packages myself using but this seems to be quite a long shot.The optimal solution would be a program or script printing out the actual upload to a host specified in the options to STDOUT

Debian Configuration :: Extremely Slow Transfer Rate On Flash Disk ?

Jul 12, 2011

Same computer and flash. Two results on different OS:

Write speed under debian: 0.4 MB/s

Write speed under Windows: 6.6 MB/s

From what i've been reading on the net I guess it's something to do with the mount - sync option.

I've notice that there are couple of workarounds but all of them are pretty tedious.

Is there any simple (GUI - one/two clicks) tool that allow to mount/unmount flash disk easily using the correct options?

I'm using Squeeze 6.0.2 (Kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64), gnome 2.30.2

Hardware :: Unbelievably Slow Transfer Rate To IRiver Media Player

Apr 7, 2010

I recently purchased an iRiver P7 media player which I am using with Rhythmbox under Ubuntu 9.04. The transfer speed when uploading files to the player is phenomenally slow - the first 50 or so MB reported virtually instantly then the speed immediately drops to about 12-15KB/sec yes KB/sec so a 3-400MB video file takes hours to transfer to the player. This happens with the internal memory and the added memory (SD card) too, althoufg it is faster ror the SD card. No other devices have ever behaved like this on this system (and I have used 2 different Creative players, a different iRiver player and numerous memory sticks). The computer is dual booting with windows (for once that was useful) and under windows it doesn't happen, the speed is as expected so it isn't the hardware. I don't want to have to resort to damned windoze just for this. dmesg after plugging in the player shows it identifying both the internal storage and the added SD card but I don't understand the rest of it:

[code]....

This last message gets repeated lots of times, and during transfers it seems to be issued continuously and I suppose this is why the system is so slow because it is always retrying loads of times before a success.

General :: Torrent Client Allowing Upload - Download Rate Limit Depending On The Time Of Day

Jan 1, 2011

With Azureus/Vuze, can we set an upload/download rate limit depending on the time of day?

If not, do you know a torrent client allowing this? Client must be available on Linux.

I learned that you can install plugins for Azureus/Vuze. There is one about scheduling. I've tried to install it but I got a NullPointerException.

Ubuntu :: Measure Internet Connectivity (Failure Rate)

Jan 26, 2010

Lately, my internet connection stops for several minutes and then re-connects. Since there are few issues to debug here (router, modem, ADSL, internet provider), I would like first to measure the failure rate. Is there a utility or script that will do the following: Wake every 1-2 minutes, verify a certain web page is available (doesn't matter which). If it fails: dump a line to a log file and get back to sleep. If OK - get back to sleep. Is there such a utility?

Ubuntu :: Internet Conection - Transfer Rate - When Active - Is About 149b/s Receiving - And About 70b/s Sending

Apr 6, 2011

I checked task manager the other day and I discovered that on the network history monitor some bits and bites were transfered in a repeating pattern (like a beacon). The transfer rate (when active) is about 149b/s receiving. And about 70b/s sending. What is this?

No Internet-related program was running from my part...In an attempt to pinpoint what was causing this, I occidentally removed the tools located left and right on the time and date. I've rebooted since but still no tools. The 0/I button is also gone.

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.

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 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 :: 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!

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?
