ok on my windows side of the house i messed around with the mtu and various settings (dns caching) and managed to get my adsl humming rather nicely. with linux i feel i am stuck in low gear here.
downloading files is quite quick, quite faster than in windows actually. but web browsing... ive tried all the standard browsers and phoenix. phoenix seems to be the fastest so far. back in my dial up days with rh7.3 i installed galeon and it was the fastest browser i had but now with the new mandrake galeon is running slow. i dont remember what version i had of galeon before
what can i do to speed up my stuff? im just seeing slow load times on pages in general. i dont know why, with dial up when i was using rh7.3 windows was slow in comparison but now i can browse noticeably faster in windows. so something must be wrong because that aint right.
