I absolutely admit that I myself have no idea what it does. Originally, the ipv4 in the entry was supposed to be ipv6 (like I know the difference!) but somebody mentioned some vague rememberence of ipv6 having (or being?) a security flaw, and suggested ipv4 instead. Both show the same performance increase, so I just went with ipv4 to be safe.

I really would love to hear more about this as Stevetgn mentioned. I feel strange passing around a fix when I have no idea what it is or does, but I know how frustrating the symptoms were that led everybody here.

hp46168, have you tried going with firefox instead of mozilla? It seems your mozilla has some issues, as the fix should help all browsers. I have had that happen in the past where I start mozilla (or firefox) and it tells me that the default profile is already in use and I have to create a new one. VERY annoying when you have all sorts of themes installed and stuff just the way you like it. I tried and tried but never found a way to correct the issue, aside from COMPLETELY removing the browser and reinstalling it. I'd love to figure that one out. But, firefox is really nice, and had all sorts of themes for it, so you might want to check it out. It's at:

Good luck to all....

Talking Re: Problem with slow internet connection that's ok in windows?

Click a link and it takes for ever to go to that page let alone load the page. Its the same problem with Konqueror, Mozilla 1.7.1, Firefox 0.9.1.

I'm using Mandrake 10 which appart from this very slow annoying problem has been superb.

I also have the same problem on my laptop with the same distro/browsers

I tried a test with both my PC & Laptop plugged into my netgear ADSL/Router. I booted into WinXP on the PC and MDK 10 on the laptop put the same ULR into both and winxp instantly loaded the page while MDK10 on the laptop took for ever. I then booted the other way around... same result. This is obviously a Linux problem not ISP or browser based.

I'm still a bit of a can anyone shed any light on this?

If I can sort this out I'm pretty much on my way to dumping xp 'cause everything else is mega with this distro!

Thanks in advance


Except that I am using a D-Link 504 router Modem, But everything is the same.
i am also having trouble getting the internet connection to initialize on boot.
And my nVidia GForce FX 5200 128mg video card is also extremely slow.
HELP ! HElP !!

I have been a member of this forum for ten minutes and am elated that the answer I found here works great. Still canīt initialise internet on boot, but very happy for now, thanks to all.

Answer : open Gedit as root and browse to /etc/modprobe.conf
add these two lines:
alias net-pf-10 ipv4
install ipv4 /bin/true
Save and reboot.

On reboot run terminal as SU
# type the following
# ifup eth0
# type Enter

Run Konquerer

Boy that was fun, (yeah I know, īget a lifeī )
