Internet on go slow (Solved)

Hi guys

Looks like I’ve managed to screw up again this time my internet has become ridiculously slow and unstable, this is my own PC and was lightening fast but now it takes an age to open pages and sometimes the pages opens quick enough but can take up to another 3 minutes to fully load other times it wont load at all, rebooting the router seems to solve the problem for a short while, but very soon goes back to going slow, but I dont feel this is a router issue because other devices connected to network run fine, also I’ve booted up a live usb running PM4 on the same PC and it’s also running fine.

I’m not sure if this is significant but the problem seemed to begin after I plugged a usb network adaptor to see if it was working and it froze the whole PC and I had to cold boot, but it rebooted fine and everything else seems fine as well

Anyway any help anyone can offer would be much appreciated

Many thanks

Graeme

The only thing that should get permanently added to the system by trying another network adapter is … drum roll

it’ll get added to /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

So what’s the contents of:
gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

and with ONLY the wireless adapter you want connected, what’s the output from:

lsusb

or

lspci -vnn | grep -i net

depending on whether your’e using a USB adapter, or a PCI one.

Try removing all 3 of these entries:-

# PCI device 0x168c:/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:02:03.0 (ath9k) SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="d8:5d:4c:f6:44:aa", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="wlan*", NAME="wlan0"

then REBOOT … with any luck -

# PCI device 0x1814:/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:02:03.0 (rt2800pci) SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="c8:3a:35:c0:6d:57", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="wlan*", NAME="wlan0"

will get added back in as though it’s a new adapter.

if not, we can put it back manually.

OK that’s not made any difference, in fact it was so slow I couldn’t get in to this site I rebooted the PC and tried again but it was just hanging with the endless rotating circle so I went on another PC and it’s doing exactly the same thing so I came back to this pc which was still trying to load this page, closed down Chromium re-opened then it went straight in like shit off a shovel , so maybe this has nothing to do with the usb adaptor maybe it’s a router issue after all. knowing me it wont be something simple

Come to think of it over the past week in particular I’ve had sudden mysterious drop outs where I’ve had to reboot the router ot the not so super superhub but I haven’t made any changes to it recently

You haven’t given these 2 PC’s conflicting static IP’s have you ?

well sort of :-[

Ooops … always the little things that get overlooked :slight_smile:

All working now ?
