Opensuse 12.3 and disabling IPv6
I recently installed Opensuse 12.3 onto my Tobshiba laptop (L505d, I believe) and I seemed to notice that the internet was running somewhat slower. I checked the opensuse forums and they said to disable IPv6 -- but why? If I had no connection issues in other distros of linux (which I have not) why would disabling IPv6 do anything?
I'm a networking newbie and a linux newbie, but this seemed weird to me. Any responses are appreciated!
Edit -- forgot to mention that it did seem to speed up after disabling IPv6
