I was at home uploading a WP site and it's maxing at 4.2kb. I did a speed test and im getting ~1MB upload (my home ISP caps it out at that). I uploaded a 5MB file via Chrome, to test, and it uploaded within 2 mins. The file uploaded was a wordpress.xml file through the uploader. Same file in nautilus is taking forever. To upload this WP site and all the plugins took 1 hour.

Any ideas of why or how?

P.S. I've been using my hosting company also for years and they've never had any speed issues uploading.

Have you tried uploading using the plain text mode ftp just to be sure it's really nautilus related ? – João Pinto Jan 2 '11 at 23:39
What do you mean plain text FTP? Like, through terminal? – Oscar Godson Jan 3 '11 at 7:29
Did you try to set your MTU to a smaller value? SFTP didn't work for me, so I set mine to 1492. You can find your maximal value with ping -s 1464 (try increasing, decrasing 1462; the number in the brackets, when you still get a response, is your new MTU) – sroecker Jan 5 '11 at 18:34
How do I got about changing my MTU? – Oscar Godson Jan 5 '11 at 22:00
