    Default about download speed

    hi all,

    my question is, why when I for example load vlc, for instance, in ubuntu it takes 30 seconds and in opensuse 30 minutes I have the opensuse videolan repository enabled, the rest is just as slow, what am I doing wrong, can anybody please advise me

    the repositories are enabled
    I have unchecked: Enable IPv6, then

    downloaded Opera (6,79mb), with yast2, this took 22 minutes, I have a 4mb adsl line

    the speed test results are (in ubuntu)
    download 3561 kb/s and upload 405 kb/s

    thank you

    Opensuse version? Gnome, KDE3, KDE4?

    Are all repositories updating? How many repositories you have added in total? No repeats?

    Also try using a network traffic monitor (knetstats for kde works fine for me) and see if it the connection is consistently slow or not, something else is eating your band.
