My Home Media Iomega NAS works quite well. But of course I wanted to play a bit with it. And with help of the guys at http://iomega.nas-central.org everything started out quite nice!

But I they missed out on one detail, to get apt-get to work; I had no internet connection from my NAS.

Our friends over at Cibercity had of course had similare problems – with a missing gateway. So I executed

route add link-local gw router_ip eth0

and my problems were gone. Is swapped default with link-local, and router_ip was my local router ip: 192.168.x.x.

Oh – Fedore does not like my Dell – and Unity sucks – so Xubuntu – I am back!

I have not had much trouble with speed using my Debian/LXDE with Firefox/Iceweasel. But after I moved, and connected my computer to a new network, things turned around! It was veeery slow!

However, it was easily solvable – goto about:config in firefox and set

network.dns.disableIPv6 = true

This changed everything!

Turn off every handling of IPv6 in Ubuntu for faster internet.
