3.1-2.slh.3-aptosid-amd64 KDE

the download speed i'm getting with aptosid is 1/3 the d/l speed of the other operating system (other partition) on same computer.

how do i correct this?

What network card/chip are you using ("infobash -v 3" should help though don't forget to say if you are using wired or wireless)?

If it is wireless can/have you tried hooking up a wire temporarily to narrow down the problem and if you did was that the same speed or back to "normal"?

Finally saying what sort of speeds you are talking about might also help people figure out what it could be.

Looks the same as issue reported here. Controller stuck at 10 Mb/s speed. You can check with:
      Code:
dmesg | grep -i duplex
ethtool eth0

To get it to full speed:
      Code:
ethtool -s eth0 advertise 0x008

Replace "eth0" with whatever the network interface name is.

only 1 problem..

whenever i restart aptosid, i have to run those 2 commands again in order to get normal d/l speed.

any way to make it permanent?

You should only need the ethtool command. AFAIK you could put in into /etc/rc.local to make it run at each boot.
