Mandrake Internet Problems
I'm new here to the forums (and Linux in general actually) and was hoping that you all could help me with a problem I'm having. I recently put together a new computer, and since I had a large hard drive, decided to make it a duel boot system. On one partition, I'm running WinXP home and on this one I'm running Mandrake 10.1. Everything seems to be working fine, except the internet. I can access the internet, and get around well enough, but the connection is mind numbingly slow. I have a cable connection, and its nice and fast on the WinXP partition, so I very much doubt thats the problem. Originally, I assumed it was a driver problem (my mobo has an integrated network card) because I couldn't get the mobo's driver disk to boot in Linux (its a .exe, those don't work round these parts, do they?). After some serching, it looks like I probabily wouldn't even need a new driver, since the kernal is kept so up to date. Long story short, I guess, does this sound like it might be a driver problem? If it is, how would I go about finding/installing some Linux drivers?
