Linux box slowing down the WLAN network
first off; I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to Linux and properly setting it up for WLAN networks. But fine.
Here at my home I have a WLAN network, most computers connect to the Sweex LW320 router for their internet connection. If all PCs would be running that'd be 2x Windows XP, 1x Vista, 1x Ubuntu 11.04 and 1x Debian 6 "Squeeze". The Squeeze is the problem. I had some spare parts and decided to build WLAN server with that for internal storage and downloads etc. But whenever the Debian box is actually downloading something it slows down the whole network. The Windows boxes take way longer to load a webpage and most SSH connections to the box seem to time out.
But at that point it hardly utilizes 10% of the internet speed. The WAN connection to the world wide web is 8mbit, the box doesnt download for more than 100kb/s while every other box in the network easily tips the 1.1mbyte/s.
So I don't really know what's going on here. And I hoped you guys could help me out and give me some ideas.
And yeah the WLAN adapter the Squeeze box uses is a Hercules 150N Pico USB adapter.
Thank you in advance.,
