I just recently was able to get internet connection after I installed an external modem -- Creative Modem Blaster -.
The surfing experience in very slow in mandrake with any of the packaged browers. Surfing using windows is considerably faster.
I could safely say that when I surf with the browsers in Mandrake, I am literall stuck on a page!!
The brosers I tried are..
I used Kppp to set-up the internet connection.
How can I increase the surfing speed in Mandrake with existing dial-up connection.
Sorry if I am not clearer on my problem, but as a newbee I did not know what files you will need to solve the problem. So, please tell me what you need and I will provide it.
I would say the same. The reason that your modem might travel a littl faster in windows has somthing to do with spcialized drivers for windows. You should try using phoenix to see it mkes any difference. There isnt very many option for modems now adays. I stoped using ppp LONG ago, when broadband came around Love my aDSL connection.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
i have several times seen kppp set a modem
to max speed 2400 or 1200. Find that max
speed setting in kppp.
the real reason is that windows is 32 bit and
linux is 64 bit, so you have to download twice
as much to look at the same picture in linux. thats why
linux users use the command so much.
openbsd is 128 bit. thats why 404 above only
typed one line. because with openbsd you have
to type 4 times the amount of data to get the
same amount of knowledge across. Thats
why bsd people are so curt.
I've noticed that when I surf in linux, it tend to be dead slow too..but it seemes like a name lookup problem...it sometimes it can resolv...I've tested both dhcp and static ip/dns, but it's still much slower than windows..
(tried both redhat, debian with mozilla/firebird & mozilla) amd 1200MHz 256 RAM...
