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.
