Techie Splurge

Slow net on ubuntu/gOS? Disable ipv6 to get a bit of a boost. Also check your iwconfig that your wifi card is set to higher than 1MB/s. Mine wasn't, so u can either do:

sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M

to bump it up to some cunning level, or put it in the file that makes it run at start up, that I can't remember off the top of my head, I hear google knows it.

I wonder if IPv6 makes much difference. Hmm. You can also disable IPv in Firefox, though I can't remember how.

sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate auto
should work.

If it's not wlan0, do iwconfig to see what it is. If you're lazy with sudo, do sudo -i once, then you'd be sudo'd until you ctrl-d. Nice
