So I've been using Linux for about 5 years now. Everything seemed to be great, and working like I wanted it to. However, just this weekend, I bought a new computer for my friend that had windows on it, and in the process of setting it up, noticed it was getting WAY better speeds than my ubuntu computers. I would average about a 34kbps down on my ubuntu install, but on the windows computer I average 90+kbps. Does anyone know why this would be or something I can do to fix it?

I'll have to get back to you on that. I have a 1mb connection, and on my ubuntu installs I've been averaging 220K down and 350K up (Seems backwards to what its been on other ISP's, but whatever...) I'll get stats on my vista install later. I'm having problems getting a signal out here. (Rural wireless. Eww!)
