I used the German site www.wieistmeineip.de/speedtest to measure the
connection speed. They download and then upload files in various sizes
(between 32 and 2048 or so kbit).

I don't think its a proxy issue, because I checked with my girlfriends
notebook (intel 3945abg module, too, only with 32 Bit Ubuntu) and it
gets rather decent speeds and those over a longer period of time, too
(updates and such).

I will try the limit-rate with wget when I get back home, can you
recommend a file I should use to test it?

Thanks a lot!
