Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sorry.....I've put this in the wrong place......stupid me! If you want to switch it over to the network section then please do.....
I've just read another post and typed ifonfig, this is what I get:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:04:F6:29:E8
inet addr:22.214.171.124 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:9990 errors:1429 dropped:0 overruns:81 frame:2107
TX packets:4250 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:5160014 (4.9 Mb) TX bytes:492097 (480.5 Kb)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xec00
Well at such a high percentage they would affect your speed. It's constantly having to resend packets if there are errors. Could you tell us a little more about the kind of ethernet card, what kind of connection? Speeds you are using and all the other network components which play along in the game like hubs, routers, switches, etc...
