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.

My internet connection is running at snail pace. The thing is it is only for HTTP protocol. I have downloaded via ftp at usual speeds. I dual boot my laptop so I have checked it in Windows and it works fine.
As an example of how slow it is this page has been loading for 4 minutes.
Does anybody have any ideas on how I can resolve this?
Is the problem occurring in all browsers, or just one? If it's all then the problem could well be DNS issues. Maybe you need to specify your ISP's DNS servers in your network card setup.
What are your ping times like?
Tried with both Lynx and Konqueror with same results. Also it is running VERY slow via SSH as well.

I am using Firefox however I have tried it with Konqueror and Lynx as well to the same conclusion.
I don't have access to the router, however this isn't the only access point I have tried it from where it runs slower than a snail. Also it works fine when I boot into Windows, As this is the case I can only deduce that the problem is with my setup, and not with the router.
have just run nmap on the IP address listed as my default route and it has come up with the following
Device type: printer|WAP
Running: Canon embedded, Linksys embedded, D-Link embedded
OS details: Canon Pixmar IP4000R printer, Linksys, D-Link, or Planet WAP
Network Distance: 1 hop
Also my ping times are between 1.43ms and 2.13ms
If I do manage to get access to the router what should I be looking for? Although I know the principle of how they work, I have never even touched a router before let alone troubleshooting problems on one.
