Is Internet speed in fedora is slow?

Hai,

              Am aware the speed is depend on the modem,plan and other stuffs.  What i am facing is, when i boot fedora and connect to my USB modem[MTS] the web pages are loading slowly.I have to refresh 3 to 4 times for a single page to load.But when downloading the speed is around 120 to 130kBps. 

           When the page loading is very slow, i rebooted and now i boot WINDOWS 7. The page loading as well as downloading are happenening in good, a very good speed. If i immediately boot fedora mean again am facing same page loading problem.But please note my downloads are happenening as the ISP promised.


    So, my question is,

                1.When Downloads are happenening fasater

                2. signal is also good

why loading page alone creating problems in fedora?

whether i need to change browser[ now using Mozilla firefox], or any browser settings in fedora?   

Really i dont want to use WINDOWS.

Please give me a solution for this.

Thank you.

fedora BY DEFAULT has ipv6 turned on
firefox by default also has ipv6 turned on

fedora tries FIRST to use a ipv6 dns look up

first turn OFF ipv6 in firefox ( use google for the instructions)
then turn off ipv6 in fedora 14
the instructions are different if you are using Gnome or KDE
search the fedoraforum

I have not had to setup a use modem in windows in a long time, so I would assume that the options will be in the connection initialization application, the network connection options or embedded in the driver information as you would view it in the device manager.

Can someone with more windows knowledge jump in to assist?

ok.I try with some windows geek....than you mfillpot

In general I have noticed that many distros misconfigure their default baud rated for usb modems, which forces them to run at a slower rate. You should be able to go into your network configuration tool that you used to setup the device and modify the baud rates to values that more closely match those used by the device in windows to increase the bandwidth.

As for the difference between web browsing and downloads, I don't see any reason why those two actions would yield different download rates unless your chosen distro has some defaulted program attempting to clean the web pages on receipt. I would recommend hooking the system up to a network via ethernet to see if you experience the same results, if the results are the same then something extra may be in play.

thank you very much. So i change my baud rate in config file , i may get the speed as in windows. right?.

How can i check the baud rate value in windows?In which place i can see the those details sir?

And i checked using Ethernet connection.Page loading downloads are happening faster. Not the same as in USB modem.

thank you
