My cable internet connection seems slower than dial up!!!
I'm a little confused by this. I did a FreeBSD 6.1 (release) instal on my
Dell Dimension 4500:
Intel Pentium4 @ 2Ghz w/ 512kb L2 cache
Seagate 80gb 7200.9 HDD
1024Mb Kingston RAM (2x 512Mb @333Mhz)
ATI Rage 128 AGP 32Mb Vid card
Sound Blaster Audigy2 soundcard
D-Link DFE 530TX+ 10/100 ethernet card
From the ethernet card I connect to a Linksys EZXS55W 5 port 10/100 Workgroup Switch. Which is then connected to a Linksys WRT54g Wireless/ Wired router and finally from there I connect to a cable modem which was supplied by my isp (Time Warner/ Road Runner).
Everything works great (Install, setup, & config), it all went as smooth as can be. However the problem I seem to be having is related to my internet connection/ speed. It appears as though when ever I install a package via ports the initial download speed runs consistently below 10Kbs. Then when I boot into Windows (RELUCTANTLY, sorry I forgot to mention that I dual boot WinXP and FreeBSD) and download anything on that side of the fence my D/L speed remains consistently at about 300Kbs.
Is this a common thing after installing *BSD???
Is there something I can tweak to adjust my internet connection speed???
As always any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanx :cool:
