Terrible Latency With Internet Connection
I've installed CentOSv5.2, and everything *seems* to be working fine.
The exception is that there is a HUGE amount of latency in the HTTP connection. Some sites load, though slow, and some sites don't load at all (though the page titles come up in the Title Bar). What could the problem be?
For example, CNN.
Could it be the cable? I'm using cat-5. It's about 15 feet from the router. Too long? Bad cable?
Something else? I've disabled SElinux, but could it be some other firewall issue?
I keep coming back to bad cable. Am I wrong to think it's not a software issue?
My next step is to haul it closer to the router and use a different cable.
But just for speculation, does anything in my description jump out?
