Hey guys im new to the world of ubuntu from what ive been doing so far there is loads of help and it been grate but now ive hit a problem.
I am running Ubuntu Server 12.10, and my connection speed is not playing ball. My router is tell me that i have download speeds of 8MB/s but when i download some thing through the server im only getting around 300Kb/s. I'm using an Cat6 Ethernet cable to connect my server to the router and my network card is able to gain speeds of upto 1GB/s. This is also some thing im struggling to figure out every example i have looked at you all use eth0 etc. My connection on the other hand is showing:
ultrabeat@minetechmc:~$ ifconfig -a p131p1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:43:00:13:9b inet addr:192.168.1.123 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::250:43ff:fe00:139b/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:373282 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:199898 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:561559942 (561.5 MB) TX bytes:13461545 (13.4 MB) Interrupt:19 # The primary network interface auto p131p1 iface p131p1 inet dhcp
Would this be the problem and if so can anyone shed some light on how to fix this?
