Konqueror in Debian: slow to load pages after upgrade

Konqueror has been a great browser for me. I'm using Debian installed from a Knoppix cd and running from the hard disk. I just did a distribution upgrade for my 2.4.26 kernel and now Konqueror has become painfully slow. It appears to take a long time to find the proxy (if one is specified), there's a delay as it finds a page, then it seems to delay as it loads each file associated with a page. It's slow whether I'm connected through a proxy server or directly to the internet. The version is 3.3.2

I tried to change some of the settings in the Configure Konqueror/Performance menu but the changes didn't seem to make a difference.

I loaded the same pages into Mozilla and it's much, much faster now. It's not that Mozilla has become faster, that's for sure.

I know that this is not a lot of information to go on, and I'd be glad to provide more. Any ideas for things I could try? Any tests I could do?

look in lsmod
got ipv6 ??
or did you compile ipv6 into your kernel
if so you are now on the network with the wrong protocol which causes double the amount of requests as all the servers go "that's wrong protocol try again" .

Thanks for answering and for the suggestion. No, i ipv6 is not a loaded module

I didn't compile the kernel myself. It came with a Knoppix release. How can I check to see if it's sitting in the kernel already?

I might add that this is really a bummer and has made my favorite browser basically useless.

all reasonable ideas will be given a shot

Given the lack of other options currently, yes.
