ADSL with Linux & Slow Browser speed issues

Recently I went online using Linux and broadband together for the first time.

Below are some tips that I hope will assist anyone who may be experiencing browser speed issues under Linux

In my case I found that when using kernel 2.4, I had the Network Configuration set to Automatically obtain DNS information from provider and that was all that was required.

However I found with kernel 2.6 it is not quite that simple, I had to input the following info into the Network Configuration , as obtained from PlusNet:

Primary DNS
Secondary DNS
Tertiary DNS


After doing the above, I had speed again Smiley

I am using Fedora Core 2

Ensure that Automatically obtain DNS information from provider is not selected
To do this go to
> System Settings
> Network
> select Device
> Edit
> General tab

Hope this helps
