    Hello, I decided to install linux and use it as my main desktop because I seemed to like it much more than windows right now but theres one thing that makes it impossible for me to use it.

    That is my internet connection speed. I am suppose to max out at around 600 KBps but on linux I am only getting like 20 KBps. But first the situation is this.

    I have 2 computers on my desk, one windows and one linux. They both DO have wireless cards and of course I have a router that give my windows pc connectivity. But because I can not seem to get my wireless card in my linux pc to work bc of the drivers (Yes I know about ndiswrapper but I never can get it to work) I set up a bridge connection through ethernet from my windows pc. I dont know if the ethernet cable is slowing it down or causing it to go only 20 KB. Because ethernet is supposed to be fast. So I am not sure why it is downloading so slow. I download a whole bunch of stuff on linux, and just downloading a 40 MB file takes like 20 mins, and I cant work with that bc normally it would be done in like a few mins. So anyone know what might be causing this?

    Note: I am using Fedora 5
