Slow Ethernet (Internet) Connection only on Suse..
The same machine ran WinXP a few weeks ago and the net speed was a lot faster. I have a WinXP laptop that connects via wifi and even thought it has a low signal strength its a lot faster.
Ive tried downloading the same file (4+MB) and it struggles on the Suse machine and whooshes by on XP.
Ive tried Firefox and Konquror and its the same slow speed.
The Suse Firewall is off. I cant think of anything else to check.. Any Ideas?
Is there any utility to check the speed im getting on my machine? What could be slowing me down??
So are you using a Wireless card or a Wired Connection?

1) Goto the file /etc/modprobe.conf while as ROOT (File Manager-Super User Mode).
2) Open the file with Kwrite and look for the line ---- alias net -pf 10 ipv6
3) Change the line to read ---- alias net -pf10 off ipv6 (just add "off")
4) Save file and close.
5) Shut down and reboot.
6) Start your browser (Firefox in my case) and try it.

The machine seems to be working fine after a reboot.. I tried making the change anyways...
Guess its one of those things that comes and goes..
Thanks for the help though..
