    Hi all,

    I am testing my connection to my ISP server. My ISP tells me that my connection speed should be as follows: 15Mbps download/1Mbps upload.

    I have two HD's, one with a fresh install of Ubuntu8.10, and one with a fresh install of Windows7 beta7048. I am using the same machine (AMDPhenom9850BEX4, 4Gigs DDR2, Onboard Realtek gig network card)

    With my Windows setup, I am hitting an average of 21Mbps Down/1Mbps Upload.

    With my Ubuntu setup, I am hitting an average of 6Mbps Down/ 800kbps Upload.

    I got the same results with my other ubuntuStudio 8.10 desktop (6MDown/800KUp)

    Is there any way I can achieve the same results for my Ubuntu 8.10 as the Windows7?

    Is there a firewall on your Ubuntu system? If so, disable it and try again.

    sometimes, Ubuntu (or other distros as well), set the lan card in half duplex mode or at 10Mb instead of 100Mb (or better).

    You can use mii-tools to verify/force a change.
