FC3 slows down when Network cable is connected but is fast when disconnected
I am running FC3 for 64 bit processors on my Sun W2100z
Heres the thing:
When I boot FC3 with the network cable plugged in (i.e. letting the boot script configure the network connection) everything is slow, from login to opening a terminal window and starting other programs.
However if I boot with the network cable UNPLUGGED, everything is noticeablly faster. I then plug the cable in and run /sbin/dhclient to get my internet cable and Fedora stays fast.
Any explanations? If someone could help me modify my boot script to ensure this works faster, it would be appreciated.
