Fedora :: Internet Browsing/page Viewing Is Very Slow
Jun 15, 2010
I have a 2.6 P4 with HT and 1GB of PC3200. i'm using an RaLink 2760 based wifi card. i compiled the driver from source, don't think it matters because i get this problem on ethernet as well. video is RV280 (radeon 9200). i have 3D accelleration supposively and get 570fps steady with glxgears. i'm in F11 updated as far as yum will take me.
When browsing websites, usually forums but even things like ....., the computer acts like it's being bogged down by something. i scroll down a page and it takes a few seconds for the screen to catch up. i understand i'm not running the most up to date hardware but i don't think this machine should have any problems with web browsing.
I'm running 11.2 on a Dell Latitude D630. Everything has been great other than issues with Suspend and hibernate not working correctly. However after about a month of use browsing the web has really slowed down bad. It doesn't seem to matter if it's in Firefox or Chrome either. I am using a wireless connection that is getting the signal at 85-95%. Even though I still tried using a direct cat-5 connection to the router and it was still slow as well. I have the fastest broadband connection my cable offers and my windows boxes on the same network are still flying.
I have a connection an its slow in both ff and chrome...however i can ping sites and get the same response time as my xp machine which runs fast. usually around the 40ms mark with no lost packets.
Also when i do installs eg. of chrome etc, i was getting up to 500kB/s download. I just cant seem to replicate this browsing, its loading up at a dial up pace. The last time I had an issue like this was setting up my mums work laptop on our home network where the work had specific proxy settings, so we turn the off and it works fine.
I do not know how to tinker this
INFO:::: broadcom 4306 chip have tried ndiswrapper and bcmxx fwcutter
This seems to be strange problem, i have dell-mouse with middle-button(For scrolling),sometime in Firefox/Chromium when i scroll up or down,it automatically goes to refresh page or sometimes it moves back.
I just installed a fresh copy of Fedora 14. When I am browsing the internet it seems like it takes forever to look up the host. In firefox I went and disabled the IPv6 option and it seemed to fix the issue, but Chrome is still having the problem. Is there a way to change this setting in Chrome?
Also I have installed conky but I can't figure out how to get it to start automatically when I log on? Can someone point me to the file I need to edit to make it work?
I am totally new to the fedora, and i have installed fedora 12. Once if I connected to internet, it will work 5 to 10 minuts fine, But later onwards i will taking to search.com page where i cannot able work on any websites. Then i checked with my internet service provider, there is no problem they say.
I have a Fedora 11 Server which act like a Internet gateway for our LAN. I have my own iptables andt squid. We daily starts up & shuts down the server. Since last few days I am facing a unique problem. When we starts the server we are able to brows the Internet on the Server but from the client machine we are unable to do so but we can ping any internet sites/Static IP from the Client machines. After 2-5 times of startup and shutdown of the Server. We are able to browse internet from the client machine.
I've installed qmailtoaster on CentOS. I use vqadmin for managing virtual domain. I can list the current domains on vqadmin interface. But when I choose "View Domain", enter a my domain and choose "View Domain", I receive a white page. I can't view the information about my domain. Please help me to resolve the problem. I can create a new domain and view the domain on vqadmin but I can't view the existing domains.
This something I have only experienced since the final install.I'm using a fresh firefox profile with NO extensions currently. The only change I have made is to disable ipv6 to see if it helped with the following problem. Browsing web pages is stupidly slow and much slower than I am used to.Downloading in firefox is normal and running at speeds I would expect.For example, I have downloaded several distro .iso's over the past two days and they have been consistently downloading at 1MB/s +This is only affecting browsing web pages and it's affecting all of them, even the basic google search page takes at least twice as long as normal.
web browsing is going SUPER slow in my samsung N150 netbook with dual boot(win7/ubuntu10.04). Windows counterpart working flawlessly.
Into the details:
The problem is, i go into a website and it seems to renderize by chunks, ie i enter my favorite PC hardware forum and it is like this when loading: Processors...1sec....Vid cards....1sec...Memory...and on and on until the bottom of the page is reached. The normal behavior is: Click...forum loaded ,as on windows.
By default i use my wireless conection, but also tried wired one to no avail. Also tried it from the live cd and i have the same problem. Some sitess like google, gmail and ..... load normally(instantly). I've tried disabling ipv6 as adviced in several parts and had no results. I used the default firefox 3.6.6, firefox 3.6.7 and chrome with the same results.
This is the info for my wireless adapter just in case:
I have looked at other threads on this subject and am still confused. Several weeks ago I had issues with browsing taking forever to resolve a page. When I changed my router to Open DNS settings that seemed to fix the slows and when I replaced the Open DNS IP's with the Google IP's, things were even quicker. Now I am back to the slows but there is no resolution latency it's just a delay when clicking a link, nothing happens and then the page eventually loads but you see the ads write on the page after the text loads. It's just not snappy. My nsswitch.config looks like this:
# /etc/nsswitch.conf # # Example configuration of GNU Name Service Switch functionality.
On my computer, I'm using 11.3, KDE 4.4.4 and Firefox 3.6.8. Firefox is so s...l...o...w..... It's slow loading and it's slow browsing. Konqueror takes 1, maybe 2 seconds to load, and another second to load the home page. Firefox takes a good 30 seconds to load. The only message I get when loading from a terminal is about not using a shared database. I don't hear the disk churning like it would with a fragmented disk.
I can't believe everyone is having this response, the hue and cry would be enormous! Anything to try? Should I try loading another browser? I tried Opera on 11.2 and didn't really like it, had problems with a lot of content. What about Sea Monkey (Gad, I HATE words with monkey in them!) Konqueror won't show a lot of videos and I have problems using the back and forward buttons. I'll wait for fixes but in the meantime.
Browsing via SSH Tunnel very slow When browsing in firefox at work via proxy through ssh on my 8.04 server the speed is near dial up. I have compression enabled, tried restarting ssh, and rebooting the server but it remains so sluggish. At home the connection is quick but the speed is lost in translation once I ssh in. I also tried adding "UseDNS no" to the ssh config but that did not help with the slow login or any other speed issues.
my computer is very slow to view regular web pages, and generally fails to load them. It seems to be a problem specifically with webpages - I can work over SSH, use email, transfer files over FTP connections, with no noticeable problems, but any regular website (including this one) can take an age to load. This happens regardless of the browser I use (at least, it happens on Firefox, Opera, and Chromium), and regardless of wired or wireless connection (though admittedly I've not tried using a wired connection very much). As far as I can tell, it can also happen on any website. It is specific to linux - my computer is dual-boot ubuntu 10.04/Windows XP, and there is no networking problem when I use Windows.
I'm not sure why, but over the last couple of days when I browse the web with my Centos 5.3 machine running firefox 3.0.5, it takes a very long time to load web pages. Loading the app itself is pretty quick, and I have not issues with system resources (it's an HP Proliant ML115 server, with dual opteron processors & 3Gb RAM). Looking at CPU & disk useage there's nothing out of the ordinary:
I've recently installed openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit) on my system and am experiencing severe performance issues with websites using https (any site using https). Page loads over https take anywhere between 30 seconds to 2 minutes. It's the same issue posted here Secure sites load slow or not at all -- there was no confirmed solution.
- My router/hardware configuration has not changed in a long time and I've run Ubuntu, Arch Linux, and Windows XP on the same machine within the last year and have not had any issues. - I also have a laptop running Arch Linux (kernel 2.6.38) and this problem does not occur using Firefox 4 or Chrome. To add to the madness this problem occurs while running Firefox 4 inside a Windows 7 guest via virtual box, but NOT while running IE 8 inside the same guest. - This issue occurs using Firefox 4, Chromium, Opera, Konqueror, and Arora. - I've disabled ipv6 in Firefox via about:config. - I've disabled ipv6 in yast and have attempted to use both the "ifup" and "networkmanager" options. - I am not using a proxy server. - I've attempted the fix posted in the Ubuntu forums for a similar problem [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Banking Site is very slow.
I'm using wlan and I'm behind a NAT firewall. Downloading with BitTorrent can reach speeds of 1,5MB/s, but browsing is incredibly slow. Chromium/Firefox seems to hang forever on "connecting.." or "waiting for". Sometimes pressing the reload button will speed it up. I have two Ubuntu boxes and they are the same way.
I don't get it, if downloading is so fast, how can browsing be so slow. Yes I have disabled ipv6 in grub and in Firefox, don't know how to do it in Chromium. Have 64-bit Ubuntu. Cnet wlan card using rt61pci module.
I don't know if others are experiencing this but browsing is extremely slow in firefox after "upgrading" to ubuntu 11.04. I have not tried other browsers. Even checking for updates fails several times.
I had to re-boot to windows to post this thread and now it's working fine. It's been 3 days since upgrading and I've observed many times that there's no such problem in windows while I have to wait like 4-5 minutes and refresh many times to open a single page. Some sites like google are quicker though. I use firefox 4.0 both in ubuntu and windows. I didn't have this problem in 10.10 and it took me about 5 hrs. to download 1 GB upgrade packages.
I'm running Mac OS on a home network that includes a Win 7 machine and a Ubuntu box (Ubuntu 11.04 (GNU/Linux 2.6.38-8-generic i686)). Connecting to, and browsing the shared drives I have on the Ubuntu box (which acts as my server) is extremely slow from the Mac, it seems that the icons especially take ages to load. I've found a few suggestions on the net that I've implemented to no avail i.e. socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=65536 SO_SNDBUF=65536 Are there any other settings I should play with, or is there an alternative to samba that will work faster on a mixed network and be compatible with everything?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my Precario Laptop I'm connected via WiFi to an Edimax BR6424-N and i cannot login to Msn and browsing is extremly slow as soon as i connect to any other network but myin everythings fine, Ive searched the web alot and found that i should down the mtu in linux so i did, from auto to 1350 and still i keep getting disconencted from msn and briwsing is just extremly slow, Im In the same room as the router so distance is not the issue...
I have in my pc (ubuntu 10.10 32 bit) a folder with about 10.000 files. It is a samba shared folder and so far I could browse fast and easily those files in another old ( Pentium4 1,5Ghz) PC with WinXP. I installed ubuntu 10.10 but the browsing now is toooooooo slow , although the old Pc's performance is considerably faster than before (when I had WinXP). Also, although the old PC's speed is satisfatory now, would it become even faster if I installed an older ubuntu distro?
I have installed Wubi (Ubuntu 10.10) recently. It takes more time to boot than Windows. But my main concern is that my browsing speed is much slower compared to that on Windows 7. How can this be resolved?
I'm hoping someone might be able to suggest what went wrong with my networking, so I can continue using OpenSUSE! I've been running version 11.3 with KDE (64 bit) for a few months now (dual booting with Ubuntu); everything had been working fine until about a week ago - the only issue I had was that some internet-based things seemed a bit slower than in Ubuntu.
Anyway, after the last set of updates I installed (around Jan. 6th; there was a kernel update and a few other things. I'm not sure where to locate the history in YaST) I lost functionality of all internet-based programs, with the exception of Firefox. (I'm using Firefox in openSUSE right now to access this forum, for example.) Although I can browse the web just fine, I can't use Thunderbird to check email, the weather and comics plasma applets don't work, and the system can no longer connect to the software repositories.
I didn't change any settings (to my knowledge), but somehow Internet access is being denied to most of my system!
I have the following nasty issue:I am using fedora 12 and I use vpn for working remote.When I browse the internet the speed is very slow!even when I do a yum update it downloads the packages with max 100kb. if I drop the vpn connection I download the packages with 1Mbdo you know what the problem could be? i created the vpn connection using the network manager...it is a regular pptp connection for the vpn!
Under Fedora 9 everything was fine. Now, when loading web sites, about half the time, there is a pause of several seconds before the page starts with a message in the status bar of "Looking up <domain name>". Seems like a problem with name resolution. Half the time, this isn't an issue ... wierd.
my installed windows makes full use of the 32mbit connection. in fedora i get between 10kbit and 100kbit.this is very annoying especially while browsing the net or using the package manager to do updates or download new software. what could be the problem and how could i solve it?
i very much like the look and feel of fedora 15, but this just makes it unusable on a daily basis.
I've been tinkering around with Linux over the past couple weeks. I've played arodn with both Ubuntu 10.10 and Linux Mint 10 and it's been a 99% positive experience. I have noticed an issue regarding my internet connection.
I've noticed when I download a file in Ubuntu (either from the software manager, BitTorrent or just a regular download in Firefox), browsing the web on my computer becomes near impossible. The download itself runs at a good speed for our DSL connection (around 200 KB/sec) but anything else near a standstill. Just loading ESPN.com on my PC can take a minute or two. Someone else playing a game in the house will go from a regular 100-200 ms ping to 5000+ right when the download starts. When I stop the download, internet browsing and gaming speeds go right back to normal.
The weird thing is the same thing happened when I installed Linux Mint 10. When I boot into my Vista partition, this isn't an issue. Downloading a file in Vista doesn't affect anything, but it's happening every time in both Ubuntu and Linux Mint.
