You already asked about it here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nd-ssh-901558/ but never returned to reply. That's bad. Always revisit your threads.

'/sbin/ifup' is for bringing up network devices. Better would be 'service network restart'.

the above command still would not speed up your internet check out your internet connection or ask your ISP to get more speed for more speed you pay more.

for a better performance you can use the squid service. for more http://www.squid-cache.org

You're right, I should have said "the right command to restart the network service is...".

I usually run graphical speedtests from the browser because they look flashy. But I guess there is nothing wrong with
Code:
ping -c 10 www.google.com
(or any large website). This will ping Google 10 times and display ping time and packet loss. 0% loss is ideal, and my ping is usually <40 ms, but I pay for the good internet. It's not going to give you a solid number like 3.4 Mb/s, but it's a start.

How, exactly, would putting ANOTHER software layer between a browser and the internet speed it up?? Only the pages visited and cached would be faster...everything else would be just as slow, if not slower, since Squid would attempt to cache THOSE pages too.

To check your connection, put in "internet speed test" into Google. Brings up lots, like this:
http://speedtest.net/

Compare what it says against what you're paying for. If you have a 128KB/s DSL, don't expect faster.

Spell your words out. And you've marked the thread as SOLVED...how about posting what you did for a solution, so it may help others, too?
