    Slow internet speeds

    Hello everyone,

    I don't know what the deal is. When I had fedora 17 installed I was getting downloads of 1.5 mbs - 3mbs consistently.

    On ubuntu i'm barely getting 500kb it seems that every download no matter where it's from (torrents,games,regular downloads) It cant get past that 500kb threshold. I disabled ipv6 via network manager and still no avail.

    If anyone has any suggestions that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    similar problem, but in my case its downloading Ubuntu updates that are so slow. I'm down as low as 220 b/s and yesterday took 5 hours to download updates...then the updates didn't work and I was left with a blank screen with no icons. Now I'm reinstalling Ubuntu 12.04 and same slow download problem.

    If I download anything else I can usually get 400-600 kb/s. Its just Ubuntu is the problem.

    What have I done to offend Ubuntu?

    As a general recommendation, when you face such problems it is a good idea if you post information about your network hardware, the connection technology (wireless, wired, etc.) and what driver you are using.
