    Angry Slow Internet


    I recently installed Fedora Core 2. I have a 192kbps cable modem connection (yes, that's funny), and I connect to it through a Linksys router, via an Ethernet cable. The Internet connection, which works just fine on Windows XP (I dual boot), is very slow on FC2. I would appreciate if anyone can point me to a solution.

    You can try looking at this topic. It sorted out my problems for having a slow connection:

    Hope this helps.

    Check if you have DNS servers set up in /etc/resolv.conf. If you don't have them set up, the connection can be considerably slower.

    Thank you, Broady! It works just fine now! :-)

    Thank you for the reply, tomcat! The DNS entries are present in /etc/resolv.conf. So I guess the problem was the fixed by the following method:

    I added these two lines in /etc/modprobe.conf:

    alias net-pf-10 off
    alias ipv6 off

    Now it's working perfectly! :-)

    If you log in as superuser (root), you will be able to edit the file.
