    Exclamation I have a bad feeling..

    Hi guys ..

    I recently updated to the newest version of SuSE (i've been having ubuntu for more than 2 years now) and I've noticed that .. either the browser (tried many different onces: the KDE integraded one, mozilla, opera and others) is loaded very slowly, or it cannot connect to my network souce very well (it's a wireless connection thru a router). When I boot Vista and i use Google Chrome it takes the most 5 secs to load any page, no matter what content. While loading in SuSE has been taking quite a while. My download speed comparison is - Vista --> about 2mb/sec , Downloading from the same destination and the same exact file in opera ran in SuSE --> 50 kb/sec max, 44 average. That's crazy. I cannot explain it. Anyone has an explanation??

    Thanks a lot.

    I don't use wireless but haven't noticed any difference between windows or linux on a wired network. Perhaps there is something wrong with the wireless settings. Try a straight ftp site for comaparison. If there is still a problem, try posting in the network section.

    I actually configured some stuff arround the user controls and right now its downloading as fast as 350mb/sec from ftp. That's much better thou, i really hate going back into vista just to download something faster..

    had a similar problem and disabling the ipv6 support solved my erratic connection. go to yast2/Network Devices/Network Settings/Global Options and untick the ipv6 support.

    good luck.
