  • In general I have noticed that many distros misconfigure their default baud rated for usb modems, which forces them to run at a slower rate. You should be able to go into your network configuration tool that you used to setup the device and modify the baud rates to values that more closely match those used by the device in windows to increase the bandwidth.

    As for the difference between web browsing and downloads, I don't see any reason why those two actions would yield different download rates unless your chosen distro has some defaulted program attempting to clean the web pages on receipt. I would recommend hooking the system up to a network via ethernet to see if you experience the same results, if the results are the same then something extra may be in play.

  • I have not had to setup a use modem in windows in a long time, so I would assume that the options will be in the connection initialization application, the network connection options or embedded in the driver information as you would view it in the device manager.

    Can someone with more windows knowledge jump in to assist?

  • fedora BY DEFAULT has ipv6 turned on
    firefox by default also has ipv6 turned on

    fedora tries FIRST to use a ipv6 dns look up

    first turn OFF ipv6 in firefox ( use google for the instructions)
    then turn off ipv6 in fedora 14
    the instructions are different if you are using Gnome or KDE
    search the fedoraforum
