fedora 17 slow internet

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – hi, I just installed fedora 17 on my desktop (dual boot with windows 7) and I have to say I like it very much. However, there is one thing which has the potential to prematurely end my fedora life: Compared to the installed windows the WLAN is at least two times slower when using fedora than on windows. this goes particularly for firefox, I am not entirely sure about other applications. However, as I am relatively new to Linux, I do not really know where to start searching. I read about disabling IPv6, but that seems a bit counterproductive to me, as it will be the standard soon.
