    Re: How-To: Disable IPV6 to speed up Internet.

    Just wanted to let you know:

    I have a Linksys WUSB54G Wireless adapter that has refused to get an IP on boot from my router (it's running using V1 Windows XP Drivers via ndiswrapper).

    I just put in the "bad_list" fix and rebooted and it got it's address!

    Thanks!!!

    I notice you have "ivp6" and "ipv6" ...is that a typo?
    Which should it be, or is it both just as it appears.

    I could be wrong, but I think perhaps if you have no apps that require
    or use ipv6 then it gets shut off automatically.

    The reason I say that is because this box is a relatively fresh install, and I haven't
    messed around with the modules.d yet. However I have switched off ipv6 in Firefoxs
    about:config and when I did `ip a | grep inet6` it shows nothing.

    Also, my network is very responsive.

    30 looksups and 30 resolves in 1.2seconds? Not bad.
    When things are bad, ask yourself what Gandalf would do.
    But when things get just right plain weird, then you need to ask: What would Skooby Dooby do?

    Re: How-To: Disable IPV6 to speed up Internet.

    Can someone help me? I just did a fresh install of Breezy. I cannot create a bad_list file.

    Also when i try to open the aliases file it opens as read only, I tried doing the old windows trick to change permissions but it's says I'm not the owner. I'm the only account on the computer how can I not be the owner?

    What do I do?

    So from what I think I picked out of this, if ipv6 is affecting your connection, it would cause a 'significant' delay or time out, rather than a cummulative lagging of every connection? Or does it cause a low percentage of lag for every online operation you make? Sounds like I should just keep it on rather than disable.
