Title Change: ADSL Connection runs slower than a 16k modem!
Hello, I seem to have the same problem that many others have had. I can't access web pages even though I'm connected to the internet. I keep getting errors saying that "web pages have no data" under firefox. I can ping google.com but the pings are very slow. Approximately once every five seconds a new line is written.
Accessing google.com is possible; it takes approximately 3-5 minutes however. Occasionally something will sync and I'll get 15-20 minutes of dsl-like speeds. Then something will happen and it'll drop down to the glacially slow numbers.
I've checked with the people running the connection and they say everything comes through exceptionally clear when they check with my modem.
I've installed resolvconf (was told it might help keep the connection stable).
I've doublechecked all my dns errors
I've tried using the modem on knoppix (installed to hd), ubuntu (installed to hd) and mandrake (installed to hd)
I've tried the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.
I've tried just about everything I could find to see if I could get it to work.
Information that may help you.
Currently running a 2.6 kernel with Ubuntu Linux
I have an ADSL account without a username/pass.
I have a speedstream 5360 modem. (no usb; has ethernet)
The resolv.conf, ifconfig, and route information are posted below.
If you have any further questions, please post. I'm at my wits end!
Thank you very much.
P.S. I changed the title to something more general as it turned out what I suspected it to be (an openswan/freeswan/ipsec conflict turned out not to be happening).
