low speed downloads

I have noticed ppp download with linux runs about at 1/4 speed compared to  
another OS on the same hardware. This is a known fact.

I have tried "irqtune" which is a bit like reflexology or acupuncture, you 
can see it is happening but does it help? 

Is it true that linux download is slower?  

a google search suggests irqtune does not work with linux 2.4 anyway.  

is there a solution?
