I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 on a desktop computer with an Ethernet connection.
Pc specifications: AMD Sempron 145 Sargas 2.8GHz Socket AM3 45W Single-Core Desktop Processor SDX145HBGMBOX, 2-2Gb of ram; 4Gb in total, Biostar TA880GB+ Motherboard, 300Gb SATA-Hard Drive, Os- Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit
My computer's internet connection seems a bit sluggish, even though it is on an Ethernet connection. My friend's laptop (Windows Vista 32-bit) is on the same network but seems to run faster even though it is on a wire-less connection. I've complained to my internet carrier but have not found a solution to it yet. I've tried different browsers also, such as Chromium, Google Chrome, and Fire Fox. But no luck as of yet.
