Suse internet problem


Hi,
I have a very interesting problem. I have Suse 9.1 home edition with Netgear WG 311 wireless card configured using linuxant driverloader. I have no problem connecting and browsing the internet although from time to time, it takes forever to load the webpages. I do not have any problems with the other machines on the network. Does anyone have suggestions on how to reduce these "connection times" for the lack of a better word.

Thanks in advance.

Quote:
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
#install net-pf-10 /bin/true
find that in modprobe.conf ( /etc/modprobe.conf )

and make it looks like this

Quote:

alias net-pf-10 ipv4
install net-pf-10 /bin/true
then you need to do : ( open terminal )

ifup device
device being the wireless device...wlan0 or eth0 or what ever. see if that helps.

o by the way...linuxant driver loader has issues....i suggest installing ndiswrapper and using that. if you need help i can try to help you with that.

i used linuxant in the past and ndiswrapper is better. find it @ sourceforge....i use the one on the ftp for suse 9.1 pro....

but if linuxant is working fine for you stick with it... i had to get ndiswrapper because i couldn't get on the wireless network at school with it...needed to run xsupplicant to authenticate on the network...and of course my luck linuxant is not compatible with xsupplicant....linuxant won't give xsupplicant a license so they can do the testing.

but yea if yer comfortable with linuxant keep with it...if you keep getting problems that you can't solve i suggest just kicking over to ndiswrapper...it's free.

yeah, I couldnt get it to work with ndiswrapper. I bought a licence for linuxant, thought it was a good idea for help a canadian company . I made that change in modprobe.conf.

Thanks man
