Hello and welcome to LQ.

First might I politely ask that you use the spellcheck before posting as your question is rather hard to read.

As regards your question, if your ISP has deliberately restricted your connection speed I doubt that anything can be done, but if the speed reduction has come about because of using Linux then maybe there's a setting to be tweaked. We really need to know a bit more about your problem and also details of your connection type etc.

Im sorry about the words. No my speed is the same as what i get in windows xp. my lan card is connected via rj45 wires to a DSL modem n that is connected to my distributor via telephones wires and my distributor is connected to the ISP.
