    I have a 56 k modem which run perfectly under mepis.In mandriva 2006 it is very very slow.I tried settings on the firewall but to no good.Read the forums but could not find a cure for my problem. I reinstalled mandriva and the first time it works but if i restart the problem is back again.So slow it wont even start a webpage. Back on mepis now till i can solve my problem. Any help would be appreciated.Not an expert in linux

    some people report that by turning off ipv6, they can get rid of the slowdown. there are a few threads on this forum about the problem.

    Also, does this slow browsing happen with all browsers?

    Open /etc/modprobe.conf and add
    alias net-pf-10 off
    to the file. Save and check again.
