Unhappy Slackware IP resolution time period problem


Hello,
I'm new to Slackware and I have noticed that when I try to surf the web the "Resolving host (insert host here)...." message in the browser takes a rather long time to occur (~5 seconds on average). If I use the actual IP address things work beautifully smooth. It's actually not just surfing the web, I get the same problem when ssh-ing to a remote host. I don't think that my LAN is the problem as I have two Windows boxes on it and they do not show signs of this problem. If it makes any difference, it is a fresh install of Slackware 10.1 w/ full packages and run using KDE. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Oh, totally forgot about that. The box is set up as DHCP (it is running through a Linksys router) .

ok per this link:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...85#post1567685

i would suggest their solution to slow dns.
which is disable IPV6
you do this by typing:

echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf

and to answer the question what is IPV6:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...&q=define:IPv6

translated into english:
IPV6 will be implemented in the future when we run out of address' in the xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx scheme.
