Slackware 9.1 - Slow cable connection
I recently installed Slackware 9.1, and Im dual-booting with Windows XP. While using Slackware, the internet speeds are very slow in comparision to when using windows. When using windows the speed is averaging 3-6mbps, when on linux it barely goes beyond 1.5mbps. Any ideas as to what is causing the major decrease in speed? Some people have said it might be the DNS, so I thought maybe using a cached DNS would make a difference. Any ideas on fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

The connection is cable from Comcast. It runs from 3-6+mbps based on different bandwidth testing sites.
