    Network performance problem


    Hey,

    I've noticed that when I install software through yum, it takes a long time to download. Is there any way I can select which server I get software from??

    Thanks,

    -Nathan

    PS I am on a 15Mbps cable connection and a 1Mbps upload. My router and firewall are configured properly too.

    If you haven't done so already, you might get faster network performance by disabling IPv6.

    I know that's the case for my own connection.
