I just installed Ubuntu 11 on my Acer timelineX 5820T, core i3, 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, 250gb hard drive laptop.

I installed it side by side with Windows 7.

After the install Ubuntu works really, really slow on the internet. Internet speeds of like only a few kb per second. It took about 10 minutes to download a 21.2MB file whereas on Win7 I'd be done in a minute or two. Also seems to run much slower as well...

Suggestions? I am new to Ubuntu and Linux so keep that in mind :D

So exactly what you are basing this alleged slow connection on? Just a browser connection? and if so which browser are you using and have you tried something different like maybe Opera)

Displayed download rates of a fey BYTES to KB per second.

I decided to plug in directly to the net and it's going fine so far.

I'm going to update everything I can and try Opera and will repost...

While updating via system updates.

Also, I separately downloaded chomium, also bytes per second.

After a google search, it seems at least 2-3 other people have this problem as well.

I see that this is an old post and I hope you have already solved your problem. If not this worked for me just now.
