Until recently, my internet connection on my Ubuntu machine was working fine. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, I'm finding severe latency problems. For instance, in my web browser, I'll attempt to navigate to www.amazon.com (or some other website) and after some time, I'm finally brought to the page. To help in diagnosing, I started to time curls to specific websites using something like
prompt> time curl www.google.com
prompt> time curl www.amazon.com
In each case, the
time command says curl takes roughly 16 seconds. This is true of every domain I hit. What could be the problem and which logs can I view to help figure this bad boy out!?
