I installed Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon some months ago.
As I never used Linux this long everything was new to me.
But since the very beginning my internet speed was extremely slow. At first i thought it was because my network connection at work was bad but now I am at home and can confirm that it is indeed super slow to open websites.
Following is the observable behaviour:
Chrome start -> Open any website -> Loads for about 10 - 15 seconds -> opens page
Second try without restart after visiting another site -> Open same site which was loaded once -> instant loaded
My internet connection is a 100 Mbit/s so that should be no problem.
After some research I tried using google DNS 188.8.131.52 or OpenDNS.
I deaktivated ipv6
I checkted /etc/nsswitch.conf for weard samba entries
I turned DNSSSEC off as it was a problem for some guy i found
I did nslookup for google for example and tried the same with the ip afterwards its both slow.
There is a noticable wait time when I ping www.google.com in comparison to using the ip instead:
Code: Select all

Nothing I found helped so far.
I just tried a Ubuntu 16.4 LTS in liveboot and installed chrome. Websites are loading almost instantly.
Please help because I don't want to switch to ubuntu or any other distribution than mint but can't work like that anymore.
