Incredibly slow connection speed on BackBox


I'm currently using BackBox for my pentesting needs, but I also have Skype, Steam and a few games installed. The problem is, my network connection is incredibly slow (max download speed 1mbps) making everything a huge hassle. I've tried installing my Broadcom drivers, doing tons of commands (can't remember them all) and nothing has done it. I don't know what information to provide either.

Welcome to the forum.

First of all, what release of BlackBox are you running?

Second, open a terminal window, as root user run the command 'lspci' and post the results here. That will show us what devices you have connected to the pci bus. If your connection is internally installed on your system.

It would help if you told us make and model of the hardware you are using.

Please describe the type of internet connection you are using; ie wired of wireless.

OK, so you have a Broadcom device. Wired or wireless? There are helpful "How To's" on the web. Have you googled your make and model for a how to?

Broadcom devices are troublesome to install. You have to extract code from a windows driver to get them to work on linux. Thank broadcom for that.

Post some useful information, and you will get help here.

Have a look at this link

-->https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/bcm43xx

and this link

-->https://wiki.debian.org/brcm80211

They give you some of the information you need. You will have to see if you can find equivalent packages in BalckBox. I do not run this distro, so I can not help there. Note you do need a firmware package as well to get this device working.
