Re: slow surfing broadband under FC5

Hope someone can help.

I have 512k ADSL broadband and connected to the internet via a D-Link modem/touter. A laptop with XP and everything is fine on that. <http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/#> Another laptop with a dual boot system. I have Win XP (and again everything is fine) and FC5.

The problem is when I am surfing the internet under FC5 Linux. Certain sites are fine, but some (google.com <http://google.com>, www.smh.com.au <http://www.smh.com.au>, etc, to name a few) just don't load, sometime, it keeps "looking up ... ' or 'connecting to ...'. sometime, it stoped with ' loading problem ...', most of the time it just stops after loading the banners.

the ethenet connection obtains auto dynemic ip address.

Any thoughts anyone? I am using the Firefox 1.5.0.7 <http://1.5.0.7> browser.

Is IPv6 still a problem in FC5? Is it enabled? If it is, try turning it off.
