I've been having a problem for the past week or so regarding my internet connection. I have a 10MB/s virginmedia broadband that's really fast when I'm the only one to use it (with an Linux machine). However, even if I always have the 5-bar reception, it takes an awful long time just to open a simple webpage as soon as my girlfriend gets back home (and turns her windows 7 computer on, obviously). And she has fast and reliable internet whenever she uses her computer. When I boot my machine on Windows, it also is quite fast so the problem probably comes from Ubuntu... Would anyone have a suggestion? (except for "well just use Windows!" as I need to work on my ubuntu machine!)
Thanks a lot!
