This has had me bugged for some time now. Ever since I upgraded to mandy 2006 I've not had a dialup speed better than about 1 kbps. This is using Konqueror, I can't connect fast enough to download any other browser!
What I have tried so far.....
1)Manually entering my ISP's nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf
2)turning off ipv6 in /etc/modprobe.conf
3)from Mandriva errata page, added "NETWORKING_IPV6 = NO" to /etc/sysconfig/network
4)disabled any firewall
5)checked security level is set to standard i.e. level 2
6) made sure that my modem max speed is set to 115kbps
With mandriva 10.1 on the same machine I used to get excellent average dialup speeds. Unfortunately 10.1 crashed absolutely fatally and I did a complete reformat and install of 2006 as the cure .... some cure eh??
I'd be super grateful for any wise words!
