    Slow internet & Wireless

    Hi every one ...
    Thanks for the great o/s. However I seem to be having issues with the Internet...
    I ran the wireless script you said to run in a older post I looked up. And I can post it if you think the information will help.
    When I open firefox to use the web, it runs very slow. However things like irc are still working while the web will not.
    Any ideas?
    It also does the same if wired or wireless.
    Thanks for reading.

    Re: Slow internet & Wireless

    some hardware info/specs would help.
    Open a terminal ( Ctrl+alt+t)
    and enter...
    Code:
    sudo lshw
    and paste the output back here inside code tags.

    lshw=list hardware.
