Slow, stop start internet
Posted on 2004-11-12
I have just installed yoper 2.1 on my pc, and the internet is for some reason going really slow - Transfer speeds are no more than about 50KBs, when i should be getting about 110KBs.
From looking a the transfers, it would appear that it seems to be downloading files in "bursts" of about 50kb at a time, then pausing, then downloading another 50kb, then pausing etc. When it is actually downloading, it is going at a perfectly good speed, but the pauses kill it, resulting in an overall low transfer speed.
I was reading that IPv6 can cause problems, but i looked in my kernel modules folder, and it would appear that IPv6 isnt installed.
Any ideas what could be casuing this slow net?
