    takes looong time to PING


    hi all,

    this is my 2nd day with Arch. i have trouble accessing internet with it. 70-80% of the times it takes a looooong time to open web-sites. other 20-30% times it works ok. i tried to PING:

    ping 216.239.63.83
    ping google.com

    in both cases it takes a loooong time to ping. sometimes it failed to ping with "100% packet loss". i tried NetBSD & there is no problem there, i had the same problem on other Linux distros like Fedora, Debian & BLAG where i always need to add these lines to "/etc/modprobe.conf":

    alias net-pf-10 off
    alias ipv6 off

    i also tried adding this on "Arch" but it does not work. here are the "relevant" parts of some system files. BTW, i have used "hwd -u", if that matters:

    ---------- "/etc/hosts"---------------
    #<ip-address> <hostname.domain.org> <hostname>
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.0.2 arch.localdomain arch
    # End of file

    ---------"/etc/rc.conf"--------------

    HOSTNAME="arch"

    lo="lo 127.0.0.1"
    eth0="eth0 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255"
    INTERFACES=(lo eth0)
    gateway="default gw 192.168.0.1"
    ROUTES=(gateway)

    ----------"/etc/resolv.conf" ------------

    nameserver 218.248.255.145
    nameserver 61.1.96.69
    -----------------------------------------


    any idea where the problem is?

    Given the symptoms, I wonder if your NIC just does not get along with Arch Linux.

    Take a look at the output of
    Code:
    # ifconfig
    See any errors showing up for that interface next to 'RX packets' and 'TX packets'?
