Hello,

Please don't double post your problem / question in multiple forums. Stick with one thread, this one for example, to keep all conversation in one place. That will be less confusing both to you and to us. Reported the other one for closure.

Kind regards,

Eric

Ok sorry ,
.
Maybe it has something to do with the dns resolution? because
I can surf in my Browser wehn I do Lan or I use Ip adresses.
I need help.
The ping to google.de is under Wlan very slow.
Under Lan it is fast.

I must say before I do the Update the Wlan works.
So in the resolv.conf is : nameserver 192.168.178.1 it is right then
under Slackware 13 it works.

Is resolv.conf identical when using both wired and wireless?

Please supply both dig outputs.

Hi,

I will not answer in the other thread any longer. As I said keep it here.

Now, how are you switching between the wireless and wired device?

What about a static setup? Try it yet?

If you are using 'wicd' have you reverted the '/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf' to the original state (original defaults)?

So DNS is working OK for dig but the symptoms do suggest a DNS problem. Perhaps it's in the browser DNS configuration. It might be useful to test using other DNS-dependent software. Do the ftp, hosts, ping, ssh and telnet commands work OK using both connection types? Do you have another browser to test with?

Can anyone suggest other softwares to test DNS resolution?

Is that wired or wireless?

Is /etc/nsswitch.conf identical when using wired and wireless?

By "same problem" do you mean "slow or death"? Is there any pattern to the links which timeout and those which succeed? If you retry a link that timed out, can you get it the second time?

When you write "program links" do you mean commands issued from the command prompt? Which ones? Did you time them? If so were they as quick wired and wireless? If not, test again inserting time in front of the commands.

When you write i.o. do you mean OK?

An easy way to post what happened at the command prompt terminal is to copy and paste it.
