My Internet on Ubuntu 9.10, mainly when using terminal, update manager and such things, starts out very fast. But about 5 seconds later the speed drops from 500kb/s to 1b/s. HELP!

Go to System-> Software Sources.
Put in password
In the Ubuntu Software tab there is a drop-down menu next to Download From:
Click on it and click other
a small window opens up. Click select best server, it will run some tests and choose the server best for you.

Hope this helps. Cheers!
