Hello all! Most time I work on Windows, but sometimes I work in Ubuntu 10.10 64bit with MacUbuntu installed on (I have dual boot on the same machine). There are some problems but most of them are slow browsing - it doesn't matter which browser (Firefox 4, Chrome, etc.). It takes approx. 5-15 seconds to open any page, but I download any file with normal speed (as same as in Windows).
My network settings were defined via NetworkManager (all settings I get via DHCP from my home router), /etc/resolv.conf consists record to my ISP's DNS server. Similar settings I have on Windows XP Pro 32 bit where all flies very well. Thanks for your answers.

Does your act as DNS if yes try and insert your router's IP address on the /etc/resolv.conf file and put a hash infront of the other ones, then test.

OK, what I did:
1. I installed local dns cache dnsmasq as said on http://embraceubuntu.com/2006/08/02/local-dns-cache-for-faster-browsing/
Now I have:
# dig yandex.ru
;; Query time: 3 msec
# dig google.com
;; Query time: 58 msec
2. Also I have VMWare virtual machine on Ubuntu with installed XP Pro on it. So web browsing in Firefox 4 on VM very very fast!
It seems that there is some latency in Ubuntu GUI but I am not certain.
