Hello, Ive had my cable modem hooked up succesfully for over a month now,
im using the @home services.
my problem is that it doesnt seem to be as fast as its "cracked up" to be,
particularly when telneting to my remote server and editing files remotely
and stuff, i notice lagg quite often, short pauses when i type and then it
catches up, unsteady data transfer etc. the modem is still very fast,
like for downloading files i can tell the speed difference, but when i
used my phone line & a modem before, when i was telneting & remotely
administrating my server i would never experience the short laggs every
now and then, its quite anoying, one would think a cable modem would be
very fast & smooth, mine seems to be fast, yet jerky.
Im wondering if this is common, or maybe i have something set up wrong
(since i get no tech support for using Linux with the modem, ill run it by
One thing to note is i am not using SuSE's DHCP thing. i thought i would
have to, but when i set up the routing tables everything worked fine,
without dhcp. in fact the one time i enable dhcp i couldnt get it working.
Am i supposed to be using dhcp? or is this setup normal?
when i ping remote servers, sometimes there will be a large delay, like
from an avg of 30 mioli seconds to one thats 160 mili seconds,, and a 30%
packet loss. maybe thats normal, i dont know, like i said, ive only had
this cable modem a month.
Anyone have any experience with this problem? and if you need to know
something about my setup ill post it upon request.
Thanks for your time.
