So I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 for a dual boot with wind 7.
After the install I had like 300 updates, so I installed them. At first I could use the internet, although it was extremely slow. However now I cannot, sometimes it will load and others it will simply time out.
When I try to download something it will either take forever or will not at all. This is a wired system. On Windows side my speeds are fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also like I said I am new to Linux/Ubuntu so please be nice.
One last thing, I also installed 11.10 for same dual boot on my laptop, and wireless speed is the same as on Windows? Only the wired desktop gives me the problem?
Hear is some hardware info.. Hope it helps.

thanks to roadmr problem solved! I powered down PC, un plugged power from pc end, waited a few (maybe 3)minutes. plugged power back in, pushed and held power button for 30 + seconds. Let go, powered on PC, and my Internet is fine! downloads and web speed blaze, just like on my Win 7 boot, maybe even faster. Problem Solved, Thanks to all!! **
