Re: FC1 -> FC2: very slow xDSL connection...

I have an idea.

Do not up ppp0 on boot.
Watch logfile ( tail -f /var/log/messages)
Start ppp0

When I activate the ppp interface, it takes much more time than with
FC1. When I had FC1 running, the log almost immediately showed the lines
with the local and remote IP addresses and DNS' addresses. Now, after
the line "ppp <- /dev/pts... " or whatever, it takes ten or more seconds
to see those addresses.

After that moment, the connection itself is very slow. As I say in the
answer to Andy Green, some traceroute and ping command show that DNS is
not the issue here: name are resolved immediately. Traceroute starts
printing "*" after several lines which appears quite rapidly, and keeps
on this way for many many seconds, I never had that much patience to
wait for it to stop.

This sounds interesting. But how can I disable IPv6 to see if it's the
cause? Must I recompile the kernel, or have I just to echo something
somewhere in /proc?

Many thanks.
