After suspending my laptop and resuming, the Internet is very slow. A reboot fixes the problem.
I get about 600 to 800KB/s down normally. After resuming from suspend this turns into about 20 to 30KB/s.
After a suspend/resume I noticed the following after running ifconfig. (The numbers increase the more I use the Internet).
RX packets:1210 errors:78 dropped:155 overruns:78 frame:0
Before a suspend/resume there are no errors etc. This problem happens both when using the wired and wireless connections.
I am using Debian unstable. I would report a bug but I am not sure what package the bug would be in. After a suspend/resume I have tried restarting the networking, manually configuring the network etc. etc. but nothing seems to get it going at its normal speed again apart from a reboot.
The computer is an Acer TravelMate 290. I would like to find where the problem is so that I can either have a workaround and/or report a bug.
Do you know what type of network card it is? I'm asking because I know there are a lot of network cards that will "power down" when on battery power or on standby. Most of the Dell Broadcom adapters can do this at a bios level even I believe.
I've tried this with Fedora 11 and it has the same problem as Debian Unstable. I've tried another laptop (same model) and this also has the same problem. This is very strange. It must be something to do with this Acer 290 if noone else is having this problem.
