Slower Internet Connection


I just installed Fedora Core 3. I have a 1mb internet connection and now it really seems to crawl opening different websites. I don't know much about this, but when I try to open a page it will take the longest time "Looking up <insert website url here>..." for example in the bottom left of Firefox. Is this related to some DNS problem. It's really annoying, almost like the 56k days. Any help would be appreciated and I will provide and information that could be useful.

Huh, all seems to be fine there:
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
search localdomain

Of course I edited the IP addresses out, but those are the two dns servers that are used in windows. I am not sure what the bottom line means.

I also use a Linksys router if that makes any difference.

Those IP's should be one IP which is the IP of your router and nothing else.

slow fedora internet connection

Thank You Thoreau..........I have Fedora core 3 dual booting with xp using ntldr and have been agonizing over why
the xp connection is so fast and why the fedora connection is so slow to resolve the host. (using firefox on both boots)
I changed my "resolv.conf" as per your last post and bingo.........everything is working great.
Your help is much appreciated.
