I've just switch over from window last night. Did a fresh install of ubuntu v9.04, which is download from their site. Everything look great except for my internet connection. I am able to connect to the INTERNET but the speed is very very slow. And it seem like the internet time out and hang alot.
One thing that I see is that when i use the network tool to try and ping a sever I would get a error saying address cannot be found then I would try again and get no error and try again I would get a partial complete.
I also notice that when i download a file it would stop for a period of 2-3 min then continue and stop and continue then it would get time out.
When browsing the browser would get stuck at looking for www.yahoo.com
for a good min or so before going to the site. Sometime it would get past this and take about 2-3 min to load one page.
I am using an Intel Gigabit Ethernet controller that come with my Intel mobo. I am connecting to the internet with a wired connection to a linksys router.
This slowness with the internet only appear on my computer. My sister computer connecting to the same router using wireless is 10x time faster. She is running window. For my ethernet I am using the newest driver e1000e.
I been google this problem all day but found nothing.
Any tip or advice is greatly appreciate. I use the internet greatly and this slowness is driving me nut. Please help!!!
