Recently upgraded my broadband service to 1.5Mbit, however, it appears now that I am faced with a bottleneck in my Linux set up, and im not sure where its going wrong....
When i plug my CM direct into my windows box, i can quite happily maintain download speeds of 180K/sec, however, when routing traffic through the linux box download to my windows machine can crawl to as low as 15K/sec, Infact i dont think ive seen it peak past 20.
I have hunted high and low all day for an answer to this, tried very near enough every tweak that i could find and im still stumped. Last year i used the same machine but with older network cards and it was fine, i was running 2Mbit through it without an issue.
nothing had changed bar two new network cards.. Thing is, i was limited to 256kbps for a bit, so i never actually noticed that it was running slow.
Anyways, i got fedup and installed smoothwall about 20 minutes ago lol - but thanks for your interest anyways! I may try it again with the latest slackware at the weekend, so I may be back to quizz people.
