Slow Webpage Loads, but Extremely Fast Speeds

Post by the_doss » Tue Feb 12, 2019 3:16 pm

Hello Mint Forums,

When I do a speed test I find that I have 100-120 down, but webpages load extremely slow. I have an Intel 8260 AC Rev 3 (iwlwifi) and on windows it is smooth, but on Mint it works but I find pages load terribly slow even though when performing a speed test I get the same result on both windows and Mint. I found that going to 2.4 rather than 5, turning off power saving and turned off IP6 helped a little, but not much. I utilized Cloudflare DNS 1.1.1.1 and it is configured on router level and dont believe it to be an DNS issue as been working fine on all other devices. Most forums I have found seem to always address the opposite problem where users experience poor range or speed.

My question then comes to could this be a card issue capability issue or system setting issue on Linux? I been trying to find if someone has ran into the same issue and if they were able to resolve it and/or what my next course of action should be to troubleshoot the issue. I have been looking at some ThinkPenguin cards, but my fear is the same issue will occur as speedtest wise I have a great connection and bandwidth (No issue on windows). Please give this poor soul some guidance in the endless stream of network issues I see on this forum. :D

Hey Gents,

I was digging into the issue and the forum and was indeed a DNS issue. For some reason it was not taking my router DNS settings and I was able to resolve issue by performing below command. Now both systemd and resolv.conf are pointing to the same DNS. Solving my issue of slow Webpage loads.

Code: Select all

 sudo ln -s /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
