    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.
