came back from my holidays, hooked up my laptop (x31 / Debian / testing)
up to the internet, and now notice that downloads
(wget/firefox/whatever) get hiccups every 750 KB or so.
I booted windows, and had no hiccups.
With using Linux, I tested:
a) downloading from different servers - hiccups
b) using ubuntu 7.04 instead of debian - hiccups
c) cable instead of wlan - hiccups
d) pluging in directly into the modem - hiccups
Wireshark shows a TCP Previous segment lost around that time, followed
by lots of tcp dup ack. Too bad that my tcp knowledge is rather low, so
I am not sure what to do with that info.
Any ideas on how to proceed?
