    Question A Question on the Guide "How to Disable IPv6"

    I am experiencing very slow internet speed while downloading files from internet. Although torrent (KTorrent) download speeds are okay. I am using 'rekonq' Web Browser. Konqueror is slower than this and Firefox is the slowest. Thats why I have uninstalled Firefox from my Suse 11.3 KDE.

    I went through the guides mentioned here:
    Disable IPv6

    But the images shown here in the first post (by caf4926)

    have slightly different configuration from my computer. (My account does not allow me to post attachments).
    In the pic 2, Do we have to select the option:
    "User Controlled with NetworkManager" before unchecking the Enable IPv6 option.

    The Networkmanager is there because I am using it.
    If you are hard wired, chances are you use ifup. Leave that selection alone, it's just the ipv6 setting you are interested in.

    In a new 11.3 64-bit install I also had to include ipv6.disable=1 in the boot options, because ipv6 was compiled as part of the kernel, not as a module (or something along these lines). This have been reported and added to the how-tos on the issue.

    Take a look here.
