I found that the tcp connections (HTTP, FTP, ...) are terribly slow on
my system. No other computer in our network has that problem (neither
under NT nor Linux) and my computer doesn't show it under NT4 either.
My 100TX is receiving a 3/4K per second using Mozilla, Lynx, wget, ...
while bing says it does between 500K and 1M depending on the network
LAN-Samba is a pain, too...
I'm the only one running SuSE (7.2), so I might consider it a problem
with the configuration, but these low rates persist when changing the
kernel (SuSE 2.4.4, orig. 2.4.4/.6)
I tryed ethereal to see if there's any bizarre traffic on the net, but I
didn't find anything not belonging to the connections. RX-errors are not
that high either...
I'm not using ipchains/tables in the kernel, so there shouldn't be any
Any ideas, anybody?
Thanks in advance!!
