View Full Version : [ubuntu] Downloading large file significantly increases latency (ping)

September 1st, 2010, 12:47 AM

my problem is, that when downloading file (connected via broadband modem 10/1 Mbps) and router (SMC) my ubuntu significantly increases ping (latency) time from ~ 10 ms up to 150 ms (same site), after termination of downloading file everything is fine.

On my windows os (xp) the increase happens also but in much less size (increse is max up to 2-3 times, in ubuntu it is up to 15-times)

Any idea what may cause this strange behaviour ?
