      Honestly, that’s a shitty take that has nothing to do with what the person you replied to said.

      And I have been a Linux user since I was 12 (my father basically forced me)

      I am literally using Linux right now. Busy spending all my hours trying to fix it and make it work.

      Why does Steam only download at 100Mbps max, when Windows downloads at 1500Mbps? Would appreciate any help trying to make basic functions work. Thanks.

      You know you can use multiple operating systems and stop shilling for one, right?

        I had a similar issue just that it was the whole system. I reinstalled arch and it somehow worked. I guess it was some kind of kernel/module problem.

          I’ve been Googling for hours, and people say to disable IPv6 and install DNSMASQ. Neither fixed it.

          Honestly might just go back to Windows. I can’t continue to waste my life troubleshooting the most basic shit in the world. It’s not like my entire PC is slow, it’s just Steam.

          Perhaps I will try Linux again for the 80th time in a few months to see where it sits then.

        Check with ethtool in what your Ethernet card is. Assuming you are using one.

        EDIT: aaaand you just didn’t mention that firefox downloads at full speed on linux.

          My web browser gets the full 1900Mbps.

          I don’t expect you to help me. The Linux community doesn’t help, they just sit there and attack people, and then wonder why their OS gains 0.000001% market share every year.

          Also I didn’t talk like a moron. I said Linux doesn’t “just work”, and the irony is that you refuse to help me fix something on linux that should “just work”.

            My web browser gets the full 1900Mbps.

            And why you didn’t mention such important detail in the beginning? “Steam on windows downloads faster than steam on linux” is much different from “browser on linux downloads faster than steam on linux”.

              I did.

              I said Steam downloads slowly. Why would I make the distinction of Steam if I meant the entirety of the Linux OS?

              Also I changed to Manjaro and Steam still refuses to download quickly. So much for “just working”.

                You did not.

                Why does Steam only download at 100Mbps max, when Windows downloads at 1500Mbps?

                You clearly said Windows, not Firefox

                  Context matters. You’re being disingenuous.

                  I am literally using Linux right now. Busy spending all my hours trying to fix it and make it work.

                  And I even attached a screenshot of the Linux desktop.

                  It’s clear that I’m saying that I’m spending hours fixing Linux to make Steam (on Linux) download at full speed, while (Steam on) Windows downloads at full speed.

              You probably fucked something up and are blaming Linux not “just working.” I’ve installed many distros on many machines, my servers, my laptops, my desktop I’m on right now… they all connected at full speeds. In other words, it just works.

              I literally clicked “install”. But yes, please, blame me. That’s how you push away new users, by blaming them, instead of understanding things don’t “just work” on Linux.

              My browser getting the full speed shows that it’s not my connection being set to half duplex.
