Speed up Internet & Google Earth

This isn't anything new or my idea, I found it while searching through some of the old ubuntuforums posts.

It worked for me, it may work for you too.

Basically you disable ipV6 which apparently conflicts with ipV4, I'm no expert on the whys or hows but like I said, it worked for me.

1. Open your Gnome Terminal/ KDE Konsole and type :-
For Gnome
Quote:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/aliases


or For KDE
Quote:
kdesu kate /etc/modprobe.d/aliases


2. Kate or Gedit will open and show you this file :-
(scroll down to see what to copy and paste)

Quote:
# These are the standard aliases for devices and kernel drivers.
# This file does not need to be modified.

# Please file a bug against module-init-tools if a package needs a entry
# in this file.

# network protocols ################### ########
alias net-pf-1 unix
alias net-pf-2 ipv4
alias net-pf-3 ax25
alias net-pf-4 ipx
alias net-pf-5 appletalk
alias net-pf-6 netrom
alias net-pf-7 bridge
alias net-pf-8 atm
alias net-pf-9 x25
# 1, 2, 3 new lines
alias net-pf-10 ipv6 off --
alias net-pf-10 off -- add these three lines here.
alias ipv6 off --
#alias net-pf-10 ipv6 =========comment (put #) the original line
alias net-pf-11 rose
alias net-pf-12 decnet
# 13 NETBEUI
alias net-pf-15 af_key
alias net-pf-16 af_netlink
alias net-pf-17 af_packet


3. Now "Save" and "Reboot"

There's another way too: instead of changing aliases file, create fie named bad_list in /etc/modprobe.d containing this line:

Quote:
alias net-pf-10 off

This method will work even if /etc/modprobe.d/aliases get replaced at some update.

Like I said these are NOT my ideas, I did them and now Google Earth and Firefox are noticeably faster for me.
