linux internet just went stupidly slow.

I've been using linux redhat 9 for a few months now, and all of a sudden my internet experince is super slow. PAINFULLY SLOW. My windows box runs lightning quick on the same connection and on the same sites. Whats going on?

I've had just the opposite. My connection went from 1.8Mb connection with win XP to 2.8Mb with Mandrake 9.1.

I am getting download speeds of 350Kbps. This is one reason I've loved my switch to Linux so much.
