Network speed changes dramatically when using 184.108.40.206/2
I have been using slackware as my proxy/router/mailserver for years and it always worked fine.
So after some complains about ftp not working in all occasions I decided to upgrade Squid (the proxy part). And of course while I was at it, a new kernel. I originally used 2.6.12_rc3, I tested (some time back) 220.127.116.11, but last week I went to 18.104.22.168. And to make it complete I included gcc 4.1.1.
Compiled the kernel. Compiled gcc, cp the includes to /usr/include, recompiled everything, Compiled squid, compiled the vmxnet driver module (Yes it's vmware).
It went great!
While web complete pages came in like sunshine on a summers day, large picture went really slow.
So I checked using a direct download:
wget from speedtest.bbned.nl/download/file32mb.bin
Result: Speed: 10K/s. (Over a 12mb adsl line!)
Changed back to the netwerk driver that is included in the kernel: AMD pcnet32.ko.
I placed the file on a http server in the lan.
Result: 10.2mBps (full 100mb speed).
But when opening a page like video.google.com
Result: < 1sec for the whole page.
Check with ethereal. I just go's slow. No trouble or something, just. Slow.
So after TWO very irritated day's I booted from 22.214.171.124
It when like sunshine.
Wget gave me 700K/s. (to slow for a 12mb adsl, but the cisco needs an upgrade)
It is just the change in the kernel. What did I miss?
Does anybody have any idea? I have managed for year just answering question on boards like this, but now I am really really stuck.
