Knoppix LiveCD 4.0.2
1.5 Mb ADSL broadband via modem
I have been spendig couple days to find out the cause of slow web browsing on 1.5Mb broadband connection without result. It took prolonged time to connect a website. The strange thing was web browsing via 56K modem connection worked even better, no need to wait.
I changed the network card. ISP even sent his technical staff for site visit checking the cable without any discovery. On the same PC I have other 2 HDs mounted on mobile rack, running WinXP and FC3 respectively. Comparing all of them, web browsing on WinXP worked fastest, not necessary waiting for connecting after pressing <RETURN> and FC3 also not bad, no need waiting for prolonged time to connect. Knoppix LiveCD was the slowest on connecting. I have to sit and wait.
All connection were tested with Firefox as browser.
I tested Knoppix LiveCD on another PC. The same result was found. 56K modem connection performed better than 1.5Mb broadband connection.
Kindly advise. TIA
