Fedora Core 3 - Browser Really Slow

Hey gang,

Disturbing development - I am using FC3 and had very few problems with it until recently. My browser takes forever to find a host - like 10 seconds. Once a page finally loads, I can move about within the domain fairly quickly. But loading, my default home page, takes a lifetime. Same with other web sites. I've tried different browsers with the same result . . . .

What gives?

Are you on FC3, 64bit or 32bit? Was the WAN access always slow or did something change recently? My FC3 on AMD64 works fine except for very slow WAN access. Most sites take 10sec or so to be found.
On downloading images, Will they download if you keep refreshing?
If so, Ive got same symptoms

32 Bit


It seemed fast for awhile, but then slowed dramatically. I am using a 32 bit, standard iso CD set. I can only guess that updates have somehow had an effect on the speed. Things seemed to slow down after I did apt-get upgrade and Up2Date. My processor is Pentium M 1.6

This sounds like the ipv6 lookups issue which reared its' ugly head in FC2.

Add "alias net-pf-10 off" to the /etc/modprobe.conf file:
# echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf

Then unload the ipv6 kernel module:
# modprobe -r ipv6

Note: Unloading the module this way may not work (it may be in use), you
may have to restart your system to unload the IPV6 module...

To check the current connection type (ipv4 or ipv6):
# lsof | egrep "TCP|UDP"
