Internet too slow
Last night I had enough of the constant crashing and BSODs of Windows, and decided to try Ubuntu (8.04 Hardy Heron). I burned the LiveCD, and liked it. Today I installed, and like the stability (and desktop effects).
However, the internet is painfully slow. I have to load a text-only Google cache just to read anything. Oddly enough, the internet worked well when using the LiveCD, and all Google pages load nicely (not just the search).
I tried disabling/blacklisting ipv6, using OpenDNS servers, but none of these appear to work. In fact, I had to boot into Windows to type this since it was so slow.
Does anybody else have this problem? Does anybody know a fix?
Any help appreciated.

Reason: Changing the MTU helped. If anybody else has this problem, type "ifconfig eth0 mtu 1200" at a terminal.
