I'm running Debian, it's a fairly new install. and I have the computer setup using Iptables as a router.
I can ping google.com with out getting any packet loss, but if i try to download anything packetloss and errors
I have yet to try switching net cards, but this is my second PCI NIC that i'm using and I've tried different wires too. i'm at a total loss.
