Slow network speed on Linux
Posted on 2006-06-02
I have a home network with the following set-up:
- DLink 1Gbps router
- Desktop with dual booting Windows XP / SUSE 10.1
- Notebook with dual booting Windows XP / SUSE 10.0
If I boot both computers into Windows XP, a file transfer beetween them happens at gigabit/s speed, really very fast. However, if I boot any of the two computers into Linux, or both into Linux, file transfers happen at really slow speeds (ie, 0.2 Kbps).
I have a 8mbps internet connection, and both computers are able to achieve maximum speed when downloading from the internet, regardless of running Linux or Windows. So the problem only happens between file transfers between the notebook and the desktop.
Any idea what could be causing this behavior?
Thanks a lot
