Debian 6.x.x extremely slow on fetching websites.


Why is the website fetching so slow? Even slower in epiphany browser. I did a net install with minimal gnome and just a few programs. The system is dog slow on fetching sites from any browser. When doing apt-get, it takes forever to connect and then download things around 1.5Mb/s to 3.0mb/s depending on the site. Same computer at home, with same specs IBM R61 2gb ram with SL linux has no issues. Please let me know.

Do you really need the "domain blablabla" and "search blablabla" there? Comment them out and check again.
I assume that the ips for the nameserver are the ones your dns has...

That was the default setup. I installed on a R51 lenovo to test out, and same problem. IPV6 is off and icewease ipv6 is also set to true for disable.

how do you connect? do you appreciate any speed difference between wifi and ethernet!?

specifically for the repos, try apt-spy, see and example here...anyway this is something you should worry after troubleshooting the general slowness...

the problem is net browsing and not just apt. Apt works fine once its connected. I got 1.8-2.3Mb/s. It seems like I use a computer with high ping time. On the same machine centos 5.8 and 6.3 have no issues.

it might be a drivers issue..which modules are loaded in centos for the interface you connect with?

is not the hardware, Deb 6.0.6 under IBM R51 or Lenovo R61 has same issues. I think it might be some problem with DNS resolve.

That worked. Thank you. The DNS was pulled from the domain around the network. Weird.
