Server Speed Up!

After I installed Fedora 10, I’ve been noticing that when loading web pages through the browser it was very slow.  It would act like it was search and then “boom” it would find the page.  Same when trying to make requests to Apache.  So I did some research and it seems that Fedora 10 comes installed with a small bug.


When your machine makes a request for a file it asks for IPv4 or IPv6 address and then the request would send a replay of IPv6 and your computer can only handle IPv4.  Then it would error out.

I had to create a config file specifically for my network card, real easy.  Now its up and running awesome and should get anymore dropped internet connections or slow speeds.  I attached the link below to read through if anyone else needs help.
