Slow internet on Fedora 14
Hi everyone, this is my first post, i'm newbie in linux, i used ubuntu, xubuntu, mandriva, and puppi, but i recently installed Fedora 14 from the iso dvd downloaded from Fedora web page.
I installed without any problem, but i can't connect propperly to internet.
I have dsl connection with 5mb, but i connect with just 1mb.
That problem happenened to me in windows xp, when the modem was routed, but when the modem was on bridge mode, and I had to connect mannualy, and i could download in 5mb.
In fact even if i type and i check the connection with modem software,it shows 5120 of downstream and 627 of upstream.
I dont want to do anything that i 've been reading yet because everyone has there own problems with internet.
So i feel ready to hear what can i do.
thanks 4 ur time.

sorry about my poor english.

Your english is fine :)
I actually have the same problem...I am able to lynx, and I can pull up a google search in a web browser, but once I click on ANY of the results it literally will NOT load because the transfer is so slow. The problem is not on my personal network; windows and older Fedora versions work fine. Security problem perhaps? I hope someone knows!

nothing happened... is the same....for some reason, i think that depends of the protocol..... may be has an error or its corrupted, or is not uptdated

same problem I discussed here, found no solution about it, even disabling ipv6 :

If you have a line in

try to delete it
Try to use
as nameserver
Any firewall, proxy...

Kind regards

@ timdvtemp : I don't think that there are some security problems around, however I think this is more a DNS problem .
@ repo : I tried this solution many times, with no success :-(

On my home network I have a dns/web/mail server, so I manually set my dns IP to that of the server. Again, works in windows and other versions of linux. From the command line I can lynx into google, but no site from a google search, which makes me think that perhaps there is some sort of filtering/firewall bogus stuff going on, despite the fact that I disabled my firewall.
