Hello all,

I have an Asus EeePC 1000HE which came with Windoze XP and I have since installed the desktop version of Ubuntu 8.10.

Everything in Windoze is working perfectly (10Mbps down according to speakeasy)

Ubuntu however, is not. It is connecting to the internet with a 1Mbps connection. Speakeasy speedtest will actually download that fast, but firefox, synaptic, etc all download no faster than 33kBps. It makes no difference whether it is wireless or wired. (100 Mbps wired router w/ Wireless-G)

Anyway, I tried posting this on the eeepc forums and we couldn't figure it out so I'm trying you guys now. If there is more information you need, please let me know. I'm not the most tech savvy person on the planet but I'll do what I can.


So, ideas anyone? I'll be very grateful for any help you can give me.
