    Hi Everyone,
    I was running PC (OpenSUSE) connected to DSL modem and using Firefox and I am content with the speed. Then I decided to connect router between modem and PC because I have another PC with windows. To test the performance, I performed following tests:
    1) PC windows and modem - speed okay.
    2) PC windows router and modem - speed okay (the same)
    3) PC Linux and modem - speed okay
    4) PC Linux router and modem - not okay, I have to wait few seconds longer for webpage to appear.

    Note that
    a) router speed is set to dsl speed.
    b) tests were performed running one PC at a time.


    What I am missing in Linux Setting (OpenSuse) that makes internet surfing slower when I am using router between modem and pc?:confused:
    Does ethernet card has a MTU setting too or is it just for routers and modems?:confused:
    Thank you.
