Very slow download speeds with new 12.04 upgrade
Hello Ubuntu world!
I am completely and utterly new, so stick with me here.
I have a desktop computer that I had Ubuntu 10.10 loaded on. Started it up after about a year and upgraded gradually to 12.04 LTS.
(I want to post specs, but how do I do it in the fancy scroll box?)
Anyway, I have noticed extremely slow internet speeds since day 1. I just got done reading a popular post about MTU and RMEM, etc., and have tried adjusting but I'm afraid I'm completely lost.
Currently purchasing a 1.5M connection (bottom of the totem pole), and average download speeds of .50M down. Sometimes far, far less.
Noticed that interface in use is "lo" not "wlan0".
