    Question Internet becomes extremely slow when using static ip!

    Hello there, I am currently facing a weird problem, It's that the internet connection becomes extremely slow when using static IP instead of DHCP when Im connected through a cable! The local network seems okay with both, but differs when using the internet!

    I've ran a ping test and got the following results!

    using static IP
    Code:
    $ ping -c 3 google.com
    PING google.com (209.85.153.104) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from 209.85.153.104: icmp_seq=1 ttl=42 time=343 ms
    
    --- google.com ping statistics ---
    3 packets transmitted, 1 received, 66% packet loss, time 16351ms
    using DHCP
    Code:
    ping -c 3 google.com
    PING google.com (209.85.153.104) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from bom01s01-in-f104.1e100.net (209.85.153.104): icmp_seq=1 ttl=42 time=307 ms
    64 bytes from bom01s01-in-f104.1e100.net (209.85.153.104): icmp_seq=2 ttl=43 time=324 ms
    64 bytes from bom01s01-in-f104.1e100.net (209.85.153.104): icmp_seq=3 ttl=42 time=334 ms
    
    --- google.com ping statistics ---
    3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 2002ms

    When I used static IP i received only one packet while when using DHCP i received all three!! Also I lost 66% of the packets when using the Static IP connection!! And most importantly, the speed, DHCP connection was 8 times faster than Static IP connection!!!

    I dont think this is normal, so i wish for your help! Thanks in advance!

    Okay after doing some researches and checks, i found that i've mistaken in the DNS servers field! Thats one bad mistake! Anyways, the ping test is now

    Code:
    $ ping -c 3 google.com
    PING google.com (209.85.153.104) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from bom01s01-in-f104.1e100.net (209.85.153.104): icmp_seq=1 ttl=42 time=301 ms
    64 bytes from bom01s01-in-f104.1e100.net (209.85.153.104): icmp_seq=2 ttl=43 time=309 ms
    64 bytes from bom01s01-in-f104.1e100.net (209.85.153.104): icmp_seq=3 ttl=42 time=294 ms
    
    --- google.com ping statistics ---
    3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 2033ms
    rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 294.164/302.022/309.942/6.441 ms
    as fast as the DHCP!! Im glad! though i should be ashamed of such a mistake!

    Everything else is the same (nameservers, routing, etc.)?


    (edit) Sorry about that - apparently you "sneaked" a post in under me. Had I seen it, I probably wouldn't have posted.

    And you even marked the thread [SOLVED] - THANK YOU!
