I got a new machine for work and was already using Ubuntu before that with a chain loader setup to load Windows 7 on another disk. My employer likes that cause he can just rip out the ubuntu disk and no trace is left of it.
My most recent problem is that he wanted to limit the reboots from Windows to Ubuntu so he asked me to setup myself as a VMWare VM. I used the second physical disk to install all my stuff directly on the disk and it was working quite well, just as it was before on my old machine.
I decided this morning to boot directly into Ubuntu and try it out outside of the VM cause the VM made my ubuntu kinda slow to work with. But since i rebooted in Ubuntu, compared to my last machine, network access is horribly slow. It can be a windows share, the internet in general, it takes a lot of time to resolve names, about 10s and if i want to browse a server share (where all our projects are located for instance) i can take up to 2-3 minute to get a listing of the files on the main share (Contains all our client's folders, around 500 folders)
Needless to say this is really not productive :)
It doesn't seem to happen when i'm in the VM in bridged networking but here in standalone mode, same machine, same hard disk, same OS, just not virtualized, everything seems more slugish in terms of internet...
Can anyone help out?
