I haven't used Debian Sarge only Mandrake and I found that the internet
was also painfully slow. The problem was that the machine was trying to
use IPv6 rather than IPv4. When I disabled IPv6 everything was fine.
184.108.40.206. Automatically loading of module
Its possible to automatically load the IPv6 module on demand. You only
have to add following line in the configuration file of the kernel
module loader (normally /etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules):
alias net-pf-10 ipv6 # automatically load IPv6 module on demand
It's also possible to disable automatically loading of the IPv6 module
using following line
alias net-pf-10 off # disable automatically load of IPv6 module on demand
Additional note: in kernels series 2.6.x, the module loader mechanism
was changed. The new configuration file has to be named
/etc/modprobe.conf instead of /etc/modules.conf.
Best of luck
