    i have a webserver installed. when i try to download a file from the server it will just give me 2kbps download rate which is way below my normal download rate. tried to download on my test box (same location with the webserver) it gives me my normal download rate. and let my friend try, still same download rate at 2kbps. i did try to change the network cable, no go. i did try to switch to other router port, still no go. btw, even in sftp it still gives me 2kbps. after a while of waiting it says it's completed but when i try to unzip the file it says corrupted and file size is 0. did try ping and it's good, no loses. are there any other ways of troubleshooting this problem?

    Are there any errors in your log files?

    hi,

    i can't see any errors in the log files. it's really unusual coz my test and webserver box have the same configuration. i even reinstalled my webserver box but still got the same issue.

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
    ? What's in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf?

    I see you're using mod_security. Can you disable mod_security and try a downoad? If it's faster then we know it has to do with mod_security.

    disabled mod_security but still no go.

    Are you using a firewall? What's the output of
    Code:
    iptables -L
    ?

    Ok, does the download speed change when you disable the firewall?

    it didnt change. when it was a fresh install with no firewall, no security the speed is still the same (slow). so i think it's gotta be with my onboard NiC.

    I just finished the reinstall and use another NIC, the speed is ok now.

    thanks for your help falko. i appreciate it.
