I recently installed Ubuntu in my machine which already has Windows 7. Internet pages load really fast when I boot Windows 7, but its very very slow and sometimes wont even load in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I tried several solutions mentioned online but nothing works. My settings use IPV4 not IPV6. Please help.

I have the same problem as yours. I'm currently investigating it and I believe it has something to do with our routers. Because when I took my computer to the library, the wifi became normal again. Also it will be best to list your system specs. Here's how to do it: 1. Go to Terminal 2. Type sudo lspci -nn 3. Hit enter 4. Then come back and paste your results 5. Paste your results, select it and hit ctrl-k (It'll format it for you) PS. Try plugging your computer to an ethernet cable for the moment, it might help <br>(That's what I do when I'm home) You might also want to look at my page: htt – Kevin May 24 '12 at 0:48
Could you let us know: are they installed on the same drive? Is it a traditional HDD with the Ubuntu partition at the end? What is your network connectivity, do you connect to a home router and use no interesting config such as a proxy? – thomasrutter May 24 '12 at 1:41
The question description here is very different from the description in Which (if either) is most similar to the problem you're experiencing. Unless you feel totally sure that you have exactly the same problem as has been posted about in an existing question, you should strongly consider posting your own question. If it's found to be the same, it can always be closed as a duplicate of an existing question. – Eliah Kagan May 24 '12 at 3:10
...Or are you saying that is the problem you're having that you think is like this and If so, that doesn't seem particularly similar to me, since that problem of yours has as one of its most salient features that it definitively happens only when you connect to the Internet via your wireless connection. – Eliah Kagan May 24 '12 at 3:11
Well, it is still unclear whether lak's slow connection happens only if connected through wifi or not. I have already told laks to test it out. If that is the case, laks might have the same issue as me. – Kevin May 25 '12 at 3:12
