Bandwidth problem


I have two computers connected to the net via one ADSL modem. My Winblows computer runs at 45 Kbps and my Linux(Suse9.2) computer runs at 26 Kbps. Can anybody help me to sort this problem, I love my Suse but she is sooo sloow.

Do you have an old NIC in the Suse machine? Lots of old Network cards are 10M only, not 10/100 like today.

Your ADSL sucks. Dial-up has much faster speed than that and it is a lot cheaper. When I had dial-up, it averages around 40 to 53 Kbps. My cable provider is about hundreds times faster. I recommend complaining to your ADSL provider or check your hardware. Also add a router to your network to make it balanced.

A 10 Mb NIC transfers more than enough for broadband internet connnections.

Did you even read the question.. one machine getting 45Kbps and the other 25Kbps on the same connection and modem.. if it was a DDOS attack, it would most likely affect both I would assume..

But I'm just hoping that the 45Kbps is a mistake and its really like 45KB/s or so the question asker is meaning since they have DSL.. as I would imagine most Dialup ISP's download faster than 45Kbps..

one thing you could try is comparing the MTUs of the windows/linux setups to see if they are different...

on linux ifconfig will show you the MTU... on windows i think it's ipconfig but i'm not sure...

yeah, i hope he means KB/s also... 45Kbps on DSL would really suck... and 26Kbps would, ummm, there's no word for that...
