It doesn't seem to me that connection is too slow from your pinging.
Can you show us the content of your /etc/resolv.conf?

Perhaps you have reached your limit, and did the ISP put you on small band.
Try to reboot the router
If you have a wireless connection, verify if no one else is using it.


Kind regards

I discovered that if I connect from live distros, the speed is OK as used to be.

Other important thing is that:
I am web developer so I refresh browser's pages a lot (in localhost). Well, these actions are slow too. So the problem is not due to internet connection. There is a bottle neck in some part.

Can you please advice over some config tweaks to play?

Thanks.-

Check if you have SELinux enabled then check iptables than check your network configuration.
Can you show us these informations?

I did not know that selinux is included in ubuntu, but yes, here it is. And... is disabled.
I am not using any firewall.
And network configuration?

Look: with this live distro when I click (GET): fast. But if I refresh the same page with [f5]: slooooooow. Make that sense?

I cannot see nothing strange or defective or different from the two ifconf so I can only just suppose that it's some other kind of problem.
It could be a hardware issue (ethernet cable, router etc.) or an ISP issue.
What kind of ADSL modem/router have you (Vendor/model)?
I could even try to add different DNS in /etc/resolv.conf. You can try the OpenDNS ones that are 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222 or the Google Public DNS that are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

Thanks Slackyman for follow this issue so closely.
I'll try your advises ASAP.
Meanwhile I have overwrited totally the .mozilla (mv .moxilla .moxilla.old) directory (I work mostly in FF for the development tools). That has returned normal speed to the localhost. (very important to me)
Other think that I have noted today is that the bottleneck is in the request (looking up ...) not in the download (transferring ...) of pages.
I'll do some test with firebug::net and YSlow addon ASAP.
Thanks!

You was right, was an ISP issue. The company is upgrading network to offer 120MB and has been screwed up the current customers.
But today all returned to normality. Thanks for your help.-
