Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

that IS NOT your connection speed even on windows
54,100,1000 has no meanning
that is a generic setting and is 100% meaningless ( even on windows)
there are on line sites like http://www.speedtest.net/
i dont mean speed test to internet. I mean speed test to local network.
It is 100Mps, and I am not very happy, because, my motherboard lan is 10/100/1000, and I connected the PC to switch which is gigabit 10/100/1000
I use cables Cat5e, and in Windows and in Debian speed is 100Mps. Must be 1Gbps.
There are several things to check.
Are you sure that all of your hardware is up to it?
How is your cable running, you sure that you don't need CAT6?
Can you you turn off auto negotiate on your network device and force gigabit? Are your machines configured for gigabit speed?
What does ip addr or ifconfig tell you about your device?
How did you determine what transfer speeds that you are getting?
Windows and in Debian speed is 100Mps
How did you determine that?
Give some more info. There are lots of network admins that use this forum.
I dont find the information I need. Where can I see speed in local area? In windows it shows 100Mps
In Linux I dont find that. But when I copy Movies between my computer and Nas 1Gigabit server, maximum speed is 10Mb. So I understand it is Lan 100Mps limitation.
Well, if My computer Lan is 10/100/1000, my NAS is 1Gigabit and I connected them to switch 10/100/1000 by Cord Cat5e, why I can copy big files only up to 10MB?
Is there other things I have to do, so I can jump this 100Mps limitation?
Will tell you what your computers network device is doing.
Is it running at 1000mbps?
Should tell you too.
What speed is you NAS set to run at? Sometimes forcing 1000mbs works better than auto.
Is your 10/100/1000 switch or router set to auto negotiate? They should do that but some older hubs would run at the lowest speed device hooked to it.
CAT5e is 100mbps cable. CAT6 is Gigabit. Did you make your cables or did you buy factory made cables? You can't get 1000mbps with home made cables. You probably won't get 1000mbps performance with CAT5e, but should get better that 100mbps. You won't get 1000mbps performance with CAT6 at home between 2 machines if the hard drives won't deliver that fast.
Either your network device needs a better driver, you have them set wrong, your cables are sub standard, your switch is cheep and doesn't perform, etc. And even then, you can't transfer data faster than the machines will deliver it.
If you are only getting 10mbit performance, (that's 10 / 8 = 1.25mbyte) then you have a device set to 10mb, or bad cables.
If you are getting 100mbit performance (that's 100 / 8 = 12.5mbyte) then your hardware is 100mb, set to 100mb, or your cables will only do 100mb.
You'll have to trouble shoot your network to see where the bottleneck is.
Also in information to network it shows speed 100Mb/s. That is 12MB. I can copy almost to 10MB
I changed the cable and I connect the PC to the 1Gigabit Switch with factory cord Cat6. Nothing change. It shows 100Mps again.
When I put ethtool eth0 in terminal, nothing appears.
I dissconect all other cables from the switch and I try only to connect my PC connected to the Switch and the connection appears 100Mps again. Something that I can try?
