How are you measuring your speeds?: Site: Speedtest

Is your speed reduced for all internet activities?: During any actions related to watching videos or downloading programs, my Internet connection is no higher than 1mb

Can you reach greater speeds when preforming updates or any other type of download?: No

Are speeds reduced using other methods to connect to the internet?: I don't have a Wi-Fi adapter in my PC, so I'm connected only through the Internet

Have you tested you speeds on another network connection if using a laptop?: On my laptop, the speed should be 10mb/sec

Welcome to the Garuda forum.

Unfortunately, with the scant details you have provided assistance is next to impossible. Please provide your garuda-inxi as requested, and also answer the following questions:

How are you measuring your speeds?

Is your speed reduced for all internet activities?

Can you reach greater speeds when preforming updates or any other type of download?

Are speeds reduced using other methods to connect to the internet?

Have you tested your speeds using Ethernet or cellular phone tethering?

Have you tested you speeds on another network connection if using a laptop?

Is your internet speed reduced on the installation disk in the live environment?

You haven't even told us whether you are using a laptop or desktop computer, or which desktop you are using. Sadly, we can't help you if you provide us with no information.
