How to speed up the download speed

 Hi, 

Today, I have a Test. I download a 1G file from Google Drive. I found that the download speed is around 2xx-3xxkb/s. If I download the file w/o through the firewall, the speed will jump to 1M to 2M /s. 

I don't know this download speed 2xx-3xxkb/s is correct or it can be improved. 

Please Help!

Thanks!

**I haven't set any Qos.

  • I try download a file 4.5G from my home NAS. Both download speeds are 6.5-7.4M/s.

  • Did u tried downloading a big file from your local server?Once i was facing the problem of almost  speed internet.By one feedback,i tried downloaded a giant size file from my local server.Be very much sure with the format of file.From my place debian was cool,it may vary for your locality.

     

     

  • Hi Beverly Strom,

    So Sorry! I am not sure the "LOCAL SERVER" meaning. You mean downloading a big file from our DC server through the intranet or download the big file from the other Hong Kong Server. If the second one, I am so sorry. Because in Hong Kong, Cloud server needs fee. So Google is very helpful for us.

  • here you can find a local debian mirror

    https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/#mirrors

    if you try to load a file from (or sync data with...) servers located in europe us US you may pass local security systems, which slow down transfer

  • Disable the IPS and try it, my internet speed is 300 MBPS, I use a SG230, with the IPS enabled the test is 80 MBPS, without the IPS I get 300 MBPS.

     

    Also you can get alot more specific on IPS settings, for example if you are not running OSX or Linux then you may not need certain patterns set, basically compare what you have on your lan to what it is looking for and only check what you have.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately , the result are same. (T_T)

  • Hi D,

    download from this link : mirror.xtom.com.hk/.../debian-live-9.8.0-i386-cinnamon.iso

    Testing result are following:

    With Firewall : around 5M

    without Firewall : around 6M - 55M (So large fluctuation)

  • Your speed information confuses me a bit ...
    at the beginning of the topic 1-2 MB/s were reported without firewall and 200-300kb/s with firewall.
    "Today, I have a Test. I download a 1G file from Google Drive. I found that the download speed is around 2xx-3xxkb/s. If I download the file w/o through the firewall, the speed will jump to 1M to 2M /s.
    I don't know this download speed 2xx-3xxkb/s is correct or it can be improved."
    you already measured 300 MB/s with firewall.
    Now we reach 5 MBit with ... and only 6-30 Mbit without FW.
    That is confusing.
    Sorry, i have no more ideas.
    I think, the firewall isn't the source of the problem.
