    Default Internet goes horrifically slow on SUSE/KDE 64-bit

    Internet goes horrifically slow on SUSE/KDE 64-bit--using the bundled FF browser and all latest updates.

    Changing back to the HD with Windows XP 32-bit and FF, it goes lighting fast in compare.

    Is this a problem, or is it normal?

    Try typing (without quotes) 'about:config' in the firefox address bar, then typing 'ipv6' in the filter box, then set disable ipv6 to 'true'. Often helps.

    [P.S: search the forums too! This comes up a lot ]

    above will turn off IPv6 in the browser, you probably also need to
    turn it off system wide, to this:

    Open Yast -> Network Devices ->Network Settings and in Global Options
    tab Uncheck Enable IPv6

    That was my next plan

    But you're right - makes sense to go straight there instead.

    Exclamation Re: Internet goes horrifically slow on SUSE/KDE 64-bit

    wow suse 11.1 is nuts!!!
    Used suggested default of ivp6 off and poof no way can printers work (get continuously can't connect to servers none available) but internet run at 54mbits/sec steady.
    Came here and found out that Yast requires ivp6 on to use printers. So turned it on and printer is seen but can't be used because no driver exist for anything but dot matrix. So printer can't function. Stupid idea to link printers thru network when they are local.
    Came back here and poof internet now at 1kbit/sec, changed back to no ivp6 and internet now max at 10kbit/sec.

    How can you have printing and fast internet when yast controls everything and won't allow you to do your own thing! My primary reason for dumping Microsoft after 35 years was loss of control.
    I need some help to resolve these issues pls help someone

    -WELCOME-

    wow! you are one of the few folks i've iMet who have used micro$oft
    for a year longer than they existed..

    i must say you have far more patience than i do...i jumped off their
    product in '95..

    let me kindly suggest you keep the rants over in soapbox, and instead
    of jumping in the middle of whatever thread might be talking about ONE
    of your problems that you review this http://is.gd/2BfI3

    and, then post a informative subject lined thread starter in the
    appropriate forum, where the guru might hang out..

    Where did you learn this? I do not find that to be the case.
