    Slow Internet

    A few weeks ago my computers internet just started going really slow. Sometimes it wouldnt even be able to connect to some websites. I was running FC2 so I decided to upgrade to FC3 hoping it would fix my problems.

    It fixed most of my problems. Images still seem to load very slow. And sometimes it will hang when its saying "connecting to" or Looking up".

    I'm running FC3 on a compaq Evo Pentium 4 1.7 Ghz 256 ram. My router is a DI-614+

    try adding these to your /etc/modprobe.conf file
    alias net-pf-10 off
    alias ipv6 off

    see for reference:

    If your Internet access "suddenly" started getting slower, then there's usually two things that might be amiss:

    1) You installed or changed something
    2) Your ISP is having issues.

    Upgrading to FC3, while not a bad idea, won't solve either of those issues. marko has a decent idea, though, since a lot of routers and ISPs don't necessarily support IPv6 yet.

    I didnt exactly upgrade. I made the isntallation erase all partitions so I would have a clean install. So I put those entries into that file. I'm not shure if it made a difference or not so I'm gonna fidle around with my router. If that dosent work I'm gonna say my ISP is having isues with linux O_o
