When did you try out your new Linux setup?

It seems to me like the whole Internet is really slow the last day or so. In fact I was going to make a post asking if anyone else had noticed how slow the net is.

I've made no changes to my systems and the net seems slow on both Vista and Linux machines.

I'm having the same problems here, though some of it seems to be related to using my wireless card. As a test, I hooked up an external wireless bridge, and literally everything seemed to be running faster. The biggest problem I'm having is stalled DNS lookup. A trial with dnscache showed no improvement; it just wasn't caching even though the logs said it was. It's gotten so bad that I've just put my favorite sites in my /etc/hosts file. I'm getting a new wireless bridge as a stopgap, then when it warms up, I'm installing a CAT5 network in the house.

The net seems better today, from both wired and wireless machine....

Does your web browser take a long time to resolve names? Or does it resolve names immediately and then slowly load each file (html, image, etc.)? Or..?
