Default Slow connection for updates with YUM/APT.

Hello All! I searched but could not find anything on this subject. My apologies if this is off forum but...
Is it normal for packages to start to download at 500+K/sec and quickly drop to around 2K to 3K for the rest of the download? I have had this problem with both YUM and APT. I am on a fast broadband connection and can stream video, download programs for windoz, etc. at rates normally between 200 and 400KB/sec. Just curious if anyone has run into this and something can be done to improve the package upgrade speeds on my linux boxes.

P.S. I have tried a few other mirrors in both Debian and Centos but have noticed the same behavior.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Hi Mike

Do you have any traffic shaping/throttling enabled?

Forgive my ignorance but would this be a function of my router or Linux setting? How can I check?
Thanks for the help!

Yes, this could be a router setting.

What's the output of
Code:
iptables -L
?

Hello Falco,
Here you go. Anything jump out here?

ispconfig:/home/michael# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
fail2ban-ssh tcp -- anywhere anywhere multiport dports ssh

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain fail2ban-ssh (1 references)
target prot opt source destination
RETURN all -- anywhere anywhere

Thanks for your help

Hm, looks ok, but you could turn off fail2ban for testing purposes to see if that changes anything. If it doesn't, it's probably a router setting.

Thanks Falco! I doubt it is fail2ban as I noticed this behavior during the Deb netinstall prior to installation of fail2ban Most likely router related. Do you have any troubleshooting tips or Sugestions?

I don't know your router model, so you may have to consult the manual for your router (or do some trial and error).
