Re: internet slow with kernel 2.6

I removed the ipv6 module and rebooted. In the logging output I could 
see that the syslog daemon triggers the load of ipv6. Is it possible 
to "deconfigure" this behaviour? Besides that I could confirm that 
the culprit is indeed the ipv6 module. Without it the dsl speed is 

Anyway, the real solutions must be to solve the issue with ipv6. Now I 
wonder if this is a problem that only shows up on ppc (or maybe only 
on iBooks?).
