    Extremely slow download speeds on Backbox linux


    I am getting anywhere from 20 kbps to 600 kbps when I try to download anything. This was not a problem on Windows 10.

    Any help would be appreciated; not sure what I have to provide information wise...

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    WIred, or wireless network?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    how does this relate to your windows experience, in percentage?
    why blackbox? are you aware that blackbox is not designed for everyday, standard computer use?

    Indeed! I run a bunch of Linux distros from RHEL 5.4 to CentOS 6.7 to Scientific Linux 7.1 to Ubuntu (in the past) and never had this problem. My internet connection speed is over 25mbps and I get every last one, plus I get the full gigabit speed between systems on my LAN.

    That said, I haven't used Blackbox Linux though I understand that it is a derivative of Ubuntu. I can install a copy in a virtual machine tonight and see if this problem exists for me as well, though I suspect it won't.

    One last question: are you running a 32bit version, or 64bit?
