upload 4-5MB/s, download ~1MB/s, redhat 9.0 2.4.20-8 (maybe hdd-related problem)
I'm not quite sure if this problem is hardware or network related, so i decided to post it here at first...
I have redhat 9.0 as gateway to my w2k. I also have 100Mbit internet connection, so ofcourse i have in redhat two 100Mbit cards and in w2k one.
And network should be working in 100Mbit, because:
[root@separi root]# mii-tool
eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok
eth1: negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok
I had one slow hdd (Seagate ST52520A Medalist Pro) in my pentium 200Mhz when i installed redhat 9.0. I was able to dl/ul with that hdd ~1MB/s.
Then i added new little better hdd (IBM Deskstar 16GP 16.8GB (DTTA-351680). I'm quite new to linux so i didn't know, that it's good to edit /etc/fstab after adding new hdd, so at first time i mounted partitions manually and like a miracle i was able to download and upload 4-5MB/s via redhat. THEN i edited /etc/fstab to include these two lines:
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
LABEL=/work /work ext3 defaults 1 2
those are the new 2 partitions i created. And the hdd works fine. Both hdd's are using mdma2, because the mobo doesn't support udma.
And after i rebooted redhat to check if i had done that editing properly, things got fu***d up.
So now i can upload via redhat from my w2k machine to others in our 100Mbit LAN that 4-5MB/s, but download speed is only ~1MB/s.
So it worked for a while, but not anymore!
And when i plug my w2k straight to internet and not using redhat as gateway i can dl/ul ~8-10MB/s, so the fault is not in windows.
So it seems like when i upload, redhat uses my new&faster hdd and when i download it uses the old&slow hdd or something... So what have i done wrong?
Or how do i fix it?
If ya need more info, please tell
Thanks in advance!
