Are sure you do not mix Megabits and Megabytes?
Those two speeds are roughly equivalent if Kubuntu 24.69 is expressed in MB/s and the XP 155.72 Mb/s
You can use Google's simple MB/Mb converter

That's weird, speedtest is just a website, it shouldn't matter how it's accessed at the client end. It should behave the same regardless of whether it's XP, Linux, Mac, Android, or iPad. Do you get consistant results in a given OS if you run it repeatedly?

Are these with an ethernet cable, or wireless ?

More speedtest results; The latest at the top are good D/L speeds XP, bad ones Kubuntu.

This doesn't make ANY sense...

If you're in an XP VM inside Kubuntu, Kubuntu (as far as I understand it) still has control of the ethernet adapter.

Are there "real world" differences in the time taken to download a file ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ifconfig
?

Dont quite get what you mean by 'Are there real world differences'

I mean, does it repeatedly take longer to download a "real" file in Kubuntu than windows .. or are you solely relying on the numbers given to you by the speedtest site ?

Have yo tried disabling IPv6 ?

IPv6 is disabled.
I just downloaded XPSP3 in Kubuntu and the fastest DL speed I saw was 4Mbps and in XP it went to 8Mbps

You're still relying on figures .. did it actually take longer ?

Just in case it IS something in your Kubuntu setup .. have you tried from say a Ubuntu or Peppermint LiveCD/LiveUSB ?

I take it from your other topic that Kubuntu is actually quicker than XP in "real world" tests :)
