10.4: Disable IPv6 networking for possible speed gain
Authored by: mlopes on May 02, '06 02:54:20AM

The reason why some may notice a speed improvment by disabling ipv6 and other users aren't it's cause the speed boost is due to hardware that doesn't do well with ipv6 (probably your network router if you're in a small home network).

I have a draytek vigor 2600 router and I have that problem especialy in name resolution (DNS), if you don't notice a speed improvment by disabling the ipv6 then you can activate it without any problems cause all your hardware suports it fine!

Sorry for my not so good english ;)
