    Very Slow Internet Connection

    I am new to linux and am experiencing problems with my wired network connection - slow internet browsing, online speed test was 6mbps. Some web sites load fine, others not at all, others apparently with no css. This happens with firefox and chrome browsers.

    I have installed the correct card drivers following this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1964200

    I have disabled ipv6 for the network connection (set to ignore).

    I have searched the many solutions online but most are either for wireless or peter out.

    I am using 12.04 using the kxstudio 3.2.0-35-lowlatency kernel. Here are some command outputs that might help.

    Code:
    phil@phil-G41D3:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release; uname -a
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise

    Re: Very Slow Internet Connection

    My network problems were solved by updating my old vigor2600 router's firmware.

    Hurrah!

    Good to know. I'm having similar issues. I'll have to check my wireless firmware.
