My cable DHCP ipv4 connection ( i've disabled ipv6 ) is working only in short bursts. It is mainly visible when performing a sudo apt-get install XXX because is only downloading the first MB and then is dead.

You can observe the lack of speed indicator, and the progress is stuck at 13% ( it went there in under a second ).

My network card is Network:

Card: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller driver: r8168

I've downloaded the

LINUX driver for kernel 3.x and 2.6.x and 2.4.x 8.042 2016/5/12

from realtek website, but no performance boost.

I think is not due to my network card, because i've tried with another one, an USB network card with AXIS chipset at it has the same behaviour.

Any hints ?

  • Are you connected to a GB switch or a 10/100 switch... can you append the output of inxi -nxxz to the question please? EDIT: Wait, I just re-read the last paragraph... Do other devices on the network work correctly? – acejavelin Jun 11 '16 at 21:11
  • Yes they do. Also, if i reboot in Windows 10, it works fine. – Cumatru Jun 11 '16 at 21:18
