Ultra slow download speeds in Linux Mint
I had windows 7 and wanted dual boot windows and Linux Mint but ended up with just Mint.
I am using firefox Web Brouser ( beginning to think it is the culprit ). I am on a cable hookup with a hardwire connection from Modem to a Netgear WGR614 V9, then a hardwire to my computer ---the grandkids are in another room wireless and enjoying 6.9 mbps download speeds while I struggle with .06 kbps
I am 79 yrs old struggling to learn the basics of Linux and waiting 10 minutes on a page to load. That makes learning a real pain :)
I would appreciate any help I can get on this
