I'm using Mandrake 10 which appart from this very slow annoying problem has been superb.
I also have the same problem on my laptop with the same distro/browsers
I tried a test with both my PC & Laptop plugged into my netgear ADSL/Router. I booted into WinXP on the PC and MDK 10 on the laptop put the same ULR into both and winxp instantly loaded the page while MDK10 on the laptop took for ever. I then booted the other way around... same result. This is obviously a Linux problem not ISP or browser based.
I'm still a bit of a can anyone shed any light on this?
If I can sort this out I'm pretty much on my way to dumping xp 'cause everything else is mega with this distro!
Thanks in advance
SAME DUDE !!!
Except that I am using a D-Link 504 router Modem, But everything is the same.
i am also having trouble getting the internet connection to initialize on boot.
And my nVidia GForce FX 5200 128mg video card is also extremely slow.
HELP ! HElP !!
I have been a member of this forum for ten minutes and am elated that the answer I found here works great. Still canīt initialise internet on boot, but very happy for now, thanks to all.
Answer : open Gedit as root and browse to /etc/modprobe.conf
add these two lines:
alias net-pf-10 ipv4
install ipv4 /bin/true
Save and reboot.
On reboot run terminal as SU
# type the following
# ifup eth0
# type Enter
Boy that was fun, (yeah I know, īget a lifeī )
