Hi,,
i am using Windows XP and Linux Ubuntu on my laptop.
i am trying to connect to wirelss internet from Windows and the connection signal is Very Good always, but both mozilla and internet explorer react very slow in connecting to websites. it takes almost a minute to connect to yahoo or hotmail, etc...
on the other hand, on Ubuntu the connection is fine and accessing to website is normal.

any hints???
thanks in advance

What bandwidth are you supposed to be getting?

What results do you get for a Windows wireless, Ubuntu wireless and Windows ethernet connection for a speed test such as Speakeasy?

Sounds like something running on the Windows machine, have you checked for malware or spyware?

i have scanned Windows using Super AntiSpyware and it is free of spywares.
is there an application to check internet connection status, bandwidth and etc....

First off, connect with a wired connection from the laptop to the router and run this test.


Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

My questions/suggestions are in parallel with John's, not in opposition.

Are the XP results for both wireless and ethernet?

Make sure you have the latest correct XP driver for the wireless adapter, from the PC manufacturer's web site if it is an integrated adapter.

That shows an issue within the ISP network, but you really need to enable PING response on your router to get the full test that will tell us about your connection quality.

hi
it is really difficult to configure the router now.
but i want to know why the internet works in Linux and not in Windows?
