well, how fast are file transfers from the other machines on the lan?
might be a clue.

(I can't say if these slow speeds are normal for ClearWire; this isn't
my house/network/computer; I do know they switched from Xanadoo to
Clearwire because they borrowed a ClearWire modem for a week and it was
SO much better than Xanadoo speeds.)


Are there some tests/diagnostics to determine if the problem is local
(malware spewing out traffic from the Windows box, congesting the local
net; flakey router; misconfigured NIC on this Debian box; etc?)?




I just did a Sid dist-upgrade on a dialup. I built myself a tool that
shows average download speed and it was set to max for a dialup:41 hours
610 packages.
