I just moved halfway across the globe and am having a strange connection issue. I have a 4 Mbps dsl connection, can successfully ssh into my server, and setup a tunnel. I use PuTTY (on my desktop - PC) and Terminal (on my mac). The speed from my desktop is getting on average 0.5 Mbps. If I test the speed direct to the closest server (ie without the proxy/tunnel) to my server however I get the 4 Mbps as advertised.
The only differences are the desktop is on a CAT5 connection and the Mac is wireless through the DSL router. I checked the cable by plugging it into the Mac and it got 4 Mbps to the tunnel. The other Ethernet connections to the router also get the 4 Mbps speed.
Below is the putty.log. I'm not sure if it is the router or the configuration of the putty connection and I'm at a loss after spending 4 hours on Google.
Any help would be appreciated. The server itself is running Ubuntu 10.04.
