The internet bandwidth, as determined using
- Code: Select all
wget --output-document=/dev/null http://speedtest.wdc01.softlayer.com/downloads/test500.zip
is much slower than what I'd expect to get. I'm getting around 1.2 MBps on my Pi through ethernet when I'm getting close to 7MBps when the ethernet is plugged directly into my laptop.
Is this comparable to what others are getting for a +50mbps (~7MBps) home broadband connection? As far as I understand, the ethernet standard on the Pi uses 100mbps -- so is this a CPU performance issue? Should I expect it to improve if I overclock it?
