Ethernet speed way slower in Linux than in Windows

I know this sounds weird but it's true. In Windows 10, I get around 11-12MBps when uploading/downloading with Google Drive but it's only around 1-2 MBps when in Ubuntu (Kubuntu to be specific).




I found out there were two Ethernet drivers running together, so I disabled one but it didn't improve anything.

lsblk Is for showings mounted disks


lsmod for drivers but it's not possible to have two drivers at the same time, try


sudo lspci -vv to show all the devices with their respective drivers

Check if it's only Google Drive software issue by testing with other software. Considering the quality of the google photos backup software it might just be an google software issue. (The google photos software on windows has a poor management of bandwidth.)
