Hi Everybody,

New to clearOS. Just migrated a few days ago from SmoothWall Express but I am experiencing issues with the download speed and navigation. My current Internet Speed according to is 53.51Mbps for Download and 49.14Mbps for Upload with a ping of 6ms.

If I try to download a file from the gateway using lynx I am benefiting of the entire bandwidth available but if I try the same thing from one of the LAN clients the download speed is decreasing insanely to 15Kbps.

I am trying to get ahead a little returning the outputs of a few commands:

Ping command from the Client to Gateway
[root@gateway ~]# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.060 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.034 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.052 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.033 ms
--- ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 2999ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.033/0.044/0.060/0.014 ms

[root@gateway ~]# lspci -k | grep Eth -A4
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Motherboard
Kernel driver in use: r8169
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 05)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter
Kernel driver in use: e1000

[root@gateway ~]# uname -r

I have uninstalled Bandwidth Manager and QoS, WebProxy, Protocol filter and all that might have possibly slow down the connection.

Where am I going wrong?

Thanks in advance!

    Thank you Nick. I will do this as soon as I get my hands on the keyboard.

    I guess the subnet advise is for security reasons, right?

    The kernel does not contain the best driver for your RTL8111/8168/8411 NIC. Please download and install both the kmod-r8168 and kmod-r8169 driver from here then restart the server. You should then find ClearOS uses the r8168 driver instead of the r8169.

    BTW, If you can, it is best to keep clear of and for any LAN subnet.
