Internet connection is absolutly SLOOOW


Well, I dont know what the deal is, but recently, im getting about 100kbps down, When i'm usually getting at least 350KBPS down. I know its not just linux, because when I boot into windows, same thing, slow connection. No firewalls installed on linux, I am going through a router. Can anyone help me?

Can't. I need to solve it, and there is no phone cord in my room to connect straightly into the DSL modem.

Are you running speed tests, or is it just from traffic?

I think it may just be my online games, my browsing in firefox seems to be the same, maybe a tadbit slower but I absolutly cannot play my online games.

Ok. It's only my online games (ut2004, wolfenstein enemy territory, wolfenstein, variety of others) that lag tremendously. I have no idea what to do, and its not just my pc upstairs, its my windows box downstairs too, so I believe it has something to do with the router, or network settings on both computers, I just dont know.
