This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've got problem with web browsers. Both firefox and konqueror uses a lot of time for saerching address of web pages (I think it's about DNS). After it get DNS resposne page is loaded in 2 or 3 secounds usually.
On my windows everything is OK.
I already tryed adding proper DNS in network configuration. But I didn't help.
I serched both firefox and linux forums but I didn't find anthig usefull. Googling also without efect.
All this is's quite flustrating.

I've just read both. But no solution. My ipv6 is on and still not working. You know its like I have this thread in my bookmarks. I click to open and then I wait around 15 sec. for smethig I this is called in english "resolving adress" and for me it seems like waiting for DNS response
I am not familiar with the structure of FC5, but in that case if it were SUSE, I would suspect something is going wrong in your resolve.conf file (such as a DNS address being overwritten with a gateway address by your router). That is, you would want to check and make sure FC5 is correctly identifying your DNS servers.
Go through the process of elimination: Stop iptables and try it again to see if that's it. Stop all services except your network service and try it again. Run knoppix from a boot CD and try that - if it works well then there's something wrong with your configuration. Do you have bind running? What DNS server are you using?
Yes it overwrites my DNS. I changed DNS names on router to my ISP DNS and it works better. I don't know why it don't want to work on the other DNS numbers I had (this servers are recognized as rather good) but now works more or less fine.
Thanks for your help
