This is driving me nuts: Internet speed reduced to 10%? - Page 5

post #41 of 52
I had an integrated gigabit NIC downgrade to 10mbps after booting into Ubuntu once. My solution was to turn off the machine and unplug it for about a minute. After I powered on I was back to gigabit speeds on LAN. I've haven't read your whole thread, but this could help you. I was frustrated thinking the problem was with drivers and the fix was such a slap in the face after spending an hour bashing my head against the keyboard.

This.
I was about to suggest the same. You need to systematically eliminate links in the chain, starting with your machine. If another (problem free) machine connected to your router has the same problem then you need to move on to the ethernet cable, and then the router and so on. If it's speeds are fine then you know where your problem lies.

If that doesn't show any issues, you can be positive it is on your side, with your computer/router. When you get a tech see if he can check the speed on the line past the router as well so you can rule that out/find out if that is the problem.

Personally after reading through this thread though, I'm thinking it's your firewall on the router or possibly AV/personal firewall. Have you tried connecting a different computer/laptop to the same connection and testing that out? It's all about troubleshooting and just brainstorming and not doing anything won't get you any closer to the solution I'm afraid.
Cant beleve i didn't think of that lol that tells you how much things like this make you brain-dead sometimes lol. I just tried on my sister's laptop and the speed is the exact same...thankfully. so its not my machine, its the broadband, seriously no idea what happend to it though, Thanks alot for that.

And a big thanks to all ye chaps for the great help, as per usual of course +1 to all for the awesome help.

<< Serious fail for not trying another machine right off the bat tbh lol, heads wrecked atm

Was her laptop connected to the router with the same ethernet cable you use on your machine or was it connected via wifi? I don't suppose you have an extra router to test with or a friend to borrow one from, do you?

It was off all the same connections yeah, im releved its not my brand new board tbh, but still id like to get it resolved of course. Unfortunatly i dont have any spare net equipment, but i'll probably ring my isp tommorow whilst im at work, and get them to send out a tech to check it out, i've no prob replaceing whatever is causing the problem myself, but i'd like to know what it is, i've had the router/cat-5 about 8 years though tbf, never had much trouble with it.

You will need to be agresive with the ISP phonegirl if it s on their side
They should send some people to test the speed at your end with their tools.
Even in Romania ,my country ,where common sense is a "rara avis" , they come to test and solve the problem

Run a continuous ping to 8.8.8.8 (a Google public DNS server).

Code:
ping 8.8.8.8 -t
Let that run for 5-10 minutes then break the command (Ctrl-C) and look at the packet statistics, particularly packet loss and let us know what you see.

May want to try this as well:

- set your NIC to DHCP and plug your system directly into the modem
- wait until he system pulls a DHCP address from the ISP.
- test speed again. If the speed is still slower than normal it is an ISP issue.

I'm assuming you're running a modem into a router so multiple people in the household can use the internet?

Try DIRECTLY connecting to the modem, do you still have the same speed? If so, it's a problem with your splitter and or outside line and you need to call your ISP to send a tech.
