I'm reading this post honestly trying to figure out what your question actually is?

Are you saying an old version of Ubuntu was slow and a newer version isn't?

sorry about that

here the story :

when i install Ubuntu 10.04.1 , at first boot , then i goto my network config
and enter my ip and DG and DNS and so on
the internet work so so so slow , or like to be comes and goes "cutting off "
this problem always solved and things are very normal after i downloaded the updates
from the update manager ,

but remember here that , it took me so long to download the updates ,
with connection comes and goes like or very slow

so why want someone to tell me why that happened ?????

So you feel that Ubuntu slows down the network on a fresh install but then eventually speeds it up after an update? Not possible I believe. Never happened to me at least. What might have happened to you a couple of times is that the update servers might have been getting hammered therefore decreasing the speed. Try changing the download server the next time you choose to update your newly installed system. Also try with some other website or downloading some other type of stuff to see, what you are feeling, actually happens!

Go to System >>> Administration >>> Software Sources, then goto "Download from " select "Other" and click the "Choose the best Server" button.
