View Full Version : poor internet performance

24th January 2009, 08:03 PM
I just installed F10 on my dell laptop. I was unable to create a swap partition but I put the root on a 21GB partition. Grub allows me to boot either Vista or Linux. My question is this...after I upgraded F10 in order to get my Dell 1395 wireless controller working I can connect via my wireless access point, but when I connect to GMAIL for example it "hangs" when I create an email and says "still working" as if it's waiting for a response from the Google server. I have the same issue on other websites, but when I connect using Vista everything works just fine. If anyone knows of something that may be misconfigured inside of Fedora that could have an effect like this I would appreciate a response. Thanks so much.

it might be firefox and ip6 and your isp not working well
do you have ip6 turned on or off for fedora 10
and is ip6 turned off in firefox
-- firefox--
type in about:config into the address bar and change
