View Full Version : [ubuntu] Strange Internet Slowdowns

April 30th, 2009, 02:28 AM
Every once in a while, the internet slows way down. I'll just be surfing the web like normal, and suddenly a page will take forever to load. Sometimes if I stop and reload, it downloads at my normal speed. This started when I did a clean reinstall to upgrade to Jaunty. Since it only slows down for a minute or so at random intervals, I don't have a clue what is going on. I know it's not my ISP since I don't have the problem on my laptop, or on Windows.

How can I figure out what is wrong?

My network card from lspci is:
01:07.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

My router is set to use a/b/g.
