I've read as many threads as possible about this little issue and I can not seem to get it working right.
I have the slow name resolving issuing when using whatever web-browser I try.
I have done the ipv6 fixes for the modprobe.conf file and i've told the firewire port not to start at boot up. Also did the about
:config in Firefox to change the ipv6setting.
I've removed and added the eth1 dev via the MCC (which i miss the old way mandrake did their interface, like fedora's)
Anyway, My winxp machine is on the same switch and has no problems.
When I do nslookup it seems to find them at a decent speed. I am not sure what else to try though. 10-30secs for name resolving with the web browsers is a bit slow
Anything else I can try?
I've also noticed that when I boot the linux machine when it finds the eth1 and eth0, eth1 takes a good minute+ to pass whereas the eth0 fails. eth1 is the one I use to connect to the internet with (the one I am currenly using) eth0 is not currently connected anywhere. My net connection is at work which is through a network connection (adsl)
