I've recently migrated from a windows 7 PC to Ubuntu 12.10 64Bit.
Ubuntu Experience Level: NewBee.
Recommended/Restricted updates installed. I've added an NVIDIA Binary Driver for my Display.
The hardware build is,
Intel Core2Duo E8400 3.0GHz
Intel DP35DP Mobo with ONBoard LAN
2 GB DDR2 Memory
NVIDIA 8600 GT Display Adapter.
I have the Ubuntu 12.10 installed on an 8GB flash drive(USB2.0). Also happy with general system performance with seamless HD video playback. The file tranfer speeds and download speeds are satisfactory and is par to my previous Windows 7 performances.
The Internet browsing experience is weird and slow. Most sites are loading very slowly and some aren't loading at all. I've tried things on Firefox 17, Opera 12.11 and Chromium 22.0.1, but issue persists. The Opera lets me load some sites with turbo enabled.
The flash streaming is fine with youtube but vimeo videos aren't loading. Common sites like yahoo.com and hotmail aren't loading at all on Firefox and Chromium. Opera with turbo enabled works at times.It even loads flickr.com thread page with turbo enabled.

At the same time my System Load Indicator 3.0 Applet returns, Downspeed 60 Kbps
Mine is a Wired DSL @512Mbps connection(ISP:BSNL,India).
The IPv6 tests are giving me a green signal.
I've done a lot of searches on many forums but wasn't able to get a working solution. Even tried disabling IPv6 on firefox config.
Here is the ethtool result:
ethtool -i eth0
Ethernet Controller Details:
~$ lspci -nn | grep -i 'Ethernet Controller'

How can get my Internet to run at optimal speeds ?
