debian internet delays... freebsd doesn't


Hello,

I'm dual booting debian squeeze and freebsd. I'm connecting via dhcp with comcast- my machine is connected to a simple linksys router and the router is connected to the comcast modem. With debian, i send internet requests- doesn't matter what (email, http, ftp or ping) and there is always a stall of about 5-7 seconds and then traffic flows fine. This doesn't happen with freebsd or when I hook up my vista machine to the same connection setup- fast connection whatever i do. Has anyone else had this problem.

Help Appreciated,

pb

Thanks for the reply,

Dns info from resolv.conf on debian and freebsd: (exactly the same)

Debian:

domain hsd1.ca.comcast.net.

search hsd1.ca.comcast.net.

nameserver 68.87.76.178
nameserver 68.87.78.130
nameserver 68.87.69.146


FreeeBSD:

domain hsd1.ca.comcast.net.


search hsd1.ca.comcast.net.


nameserver 68.87.76.178
nameserver 68.87.78.130
nameserver 68.87.69.146

Have you tried disabling IP6 on your Debian box ?

By default Debian enables IPv6 on installation. I've got caught on it too, so I second Farslayer's remark.

Thanks Farslayer,

I hadn't even thought of that. Used the instructions and it worked like a charm. I very much appreciate the tip, this has been driving me nutty for the last week.

Cheers,
