Hi there. I'm looking for assistance on a a problem concerning my download speeds.

I have a dual boot system (XP/Kubuntu) and in XP I get great download speeds. However, downloading the same file in Kubuntu my speed is no more than 20% of the XP speed.

I'm using a wired connection going through a D-Link DI-624 if that helps.

Hi Strat,

Seems the DI-624 has issues with linux. I've found http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=641466 posted back in 2007 about this issue and a more technical webpage explaining the problem in depth.

The gist of it is to disable ipv6 in the browser your using.

Good Luck,
Tinker
