LInux cable speed degrading
I have MDK8.0 connected through a Linksys BEFSR41 Cable Router. I have a Netgear fa311 nic.
At first, my speed was pretty good, but it seems to be degrading. On a cable connection, my speed on my winxp machine is about 70kb/s but on my linux box is only 150b/s. DHCP is off.
Here is the output from ifconfig:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:E3:13:C3:AE
inet addr:192.168.1.4 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:952 errors:555 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:1576

RX bytes:455711 (445.0 Kb) TX bytes:149811 (146.2 Kb)
Interrupt:5 Base address:0x3000
I'm not a guru, but 555 errors probably isn't good.
did you eliminate it being a cable problem?
maybe the cable router needs you to set a lower MTU
ifconfig eth0 mtu 1452
keep in mind linksys products aren't the greatest. during my experiance with them i would like to replace them with SMC or other products that are far superior. my router sometimes goes down to 75% packet loss!!! yes on ethernet part. (its dual wireless/ethenet)
a simple reset of the router (i guess ur distro should automatically figure out the connection is back on etc) and you should get your speeds back.
Thanks for the suggestions. All though I thought I had fixed it, I think it is a cable problem.
Tried a "ping www.hotmail.com" as a test and got 100% packet loss :(
www.hotmail.com is dropping pings
PING www.hotmail.com (184.108.40.206) from ??.??.??.?? : 56(84) bytes of data.
--- www.hotmail.com ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss
try another address
PING www.linuxquestions.org (220.127.116.11) from ??.??.??.?? : 56(84) bytes o

round-trip min/avg/max/mdev = 39.840/41.881/43.923/2.051 ms
Yeah I remembed that after I posted.
other ping results:
55 packets transmitted, 47 packets received, 14% packet loss

Thanks for your help.
