Running 8.10 on a hp mini 1000, trying to upgrade and install other software but cant' owing to terrible download speeds. i have tried three things so far, all with no tangible improvement

i followed the steps in this but i don't seem to have disabled ipv6:

luke@luke-laptop:~$ ip a | grep inet6
inet6 ::1/128 scope host

i got my interfaces file, but it looked very spartan, and was missing the all important lines, having just these two,

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

and so i haven't altered this one

many many thanks for your help in advance
