    This is interesting. When I installed linux, my internet speed increased, not decreased. But then, my speed is ridiculous anyway.

    Let's see. It's highly unlikely that linux installation is influencing the speed of your broadband in windows. Linux doesn't intrude that way. I don't know if it's a coincidence. If you want to experiment, install only ubuntu, and see what happens.

    there ia no corelation between no. of OS and download speeds. it is totally independent of each other.

    u r telling me that after installing linux ur broadband suffered. this is impossible. another OS does not interfere with the one running. the are completely different entities.
    __________
    the problem must me with ur ISP. unless u modified soem hardware settings of ur modem/router from either linux or windows.

    No, that cant be at all. I think what you say is right, its your line or maybe your modem. Also since the linux partitions were unidentified by windows it leaves them in peace, no issues what so ever. Can you try again please ?

    There is no reason whatsoever that linux, windows or any other OS for that matter can affect your connection speed.
    It could just be that it was a co-incidence or you configured something really badly.
    BTW, which broadband are you using? I haven't really heard of any broadband giving such a bad speed. At the most I have heard is that of pacenet connection limits data transfer rate or linux dialer to around about 20kbps instead of 30 kbps.
    Maybe you can tell which ISP you have and how did you configure your net. Also, you have connected via USB or LAN Card.
    Also, I guess you were using Ubuntu 5.10, which is outdated, try to obtain 6.06 which is newer and has support for longer term.
