When i try to use a webrowser it is extremely slow in FC5x64 using Firefox and gnome.
I have already disabled ip6 here's what happens when i type ifconfig:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:03:25:35:1B:AE
          inet addr:192.168.1.100  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:230 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:200 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:230456 (225.0 KiB)  TX bytes:65271 (63.7 KiB)
          Interrupt:20

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:1312 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1312 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:2095146 (1.9 MiB)  TX bytes:2095146 (1.9 MiB)

i've already added alias net-pf-10 off

to my /etc/modprobe.conf:

alias eth0 sky2
alias snd-card-0 snd-atiixp
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-atiixp index=0
remove snd-atiixp { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-atiixp
alias net-pf-10 off

Here is my resolve.conf:

search accesscomm.ca          
nameserver 142.165.21.5
nameserver 142.165.200.5
nameserver 204.83.142.2

If you know how to fix my slow internet problem please let me know thx.

mmm. just an advice.. put another IP address the ip address 100 is the default for many access points and some times make a conflict with your machine

i have 13 years of experience ;)    just kidding you need to check the thinks that NOT depend of you. maybe one of the dns server sent your queries to the bottom of the queue  and this delay your navigation.
