SMB file copy and internet download failing - suse 10.0

Please excuse the long post - I have tried to give as much detail as I
can think of and am also new to linux, so not sure what is relevant:
I have a new Suse 10 installation and am experiencing very slow network
throughput. Machine configuration: IBM T42 laptop. 100MB switched
network. Lan card configured to start on cable connection, and Wireless
card (which I also cannot get connected to my access point) set to start
manually. Both cards' IP addressing set manually (no DHCP). Internal
subnet gateway of DNS resolution seems
to be working fine, and a NSLookup
resolves external hosts without any problem. I tried to do a Yast update
- this finds a mirror, retrieves (eventually) a list of available
updates, and then starts to download them - this consistently fails it
just hangs after a random percentage is downloaded.
opening a web page is also extremely slow - the name gets resolved
quickly, but then I wait a long time for the page to open completely, and
sometimes, some of the images do not get opened at all (like half of the
google name). Copying a file from a smb share on the local network also
"stalls", and never completes a copy. I am currently on the same machine
booted with a live CD of Kubuntu, and do not have the same issues with
either web access or local throughput.
I found some articles suggesting that the problem might be related to
ipv6, so I tried to disable IPv6 (Not sure if I was sussessfull??)
I have also tried to use ethtool to set my Nics speed and duplex mode manually to 100mb duplex full autoneg off. This has not seemed to help, and the cards settings revert after a reboot.
I have included the following configurations: portion of modprobe.conf,
ifconfig -a resolv.conf and route;
alias net-pf-1 unix
alias net-pf-2 ipv4
# install net-pf-2 /bin/true
alias net-pf-3 ax25
# install net-pf-3 /bin/true
alias net-pf-4 ipx
# install net-pf-4 /bin/true
alias net-pf-5 appletalk
# install net-pf-5 /bin/true
alias net-pf-6 netrom
# install net-pf-6 /bin/true
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
# install net-pf-10 /bin/true
alias net-pf-11 rose
# install net-pf-11 /bin/true
alias net-pf-15 af_key
alias net-pf-17 af_packet
alias net-pf-31 bluetooth

eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:25:43:03:56
