Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

Hi,

I have a livebox, who is the router of Orange http://www.dslvalley.com/adsl-test/livebox.php

They have an incompatibility between this router and ipv6 on linux. I have to disable the ipv6 support in all the distribution i use before to have an usable internet (opensuse notably), but since now, i haven't any problem with ubuntu.

In karmic the internet is very slow if we keep the default connexion, i find a solution on ubuntu-fr.org forum (i'm not alone to have this problem), we have to put the connection to manuel (ip 192.128.1.10, or something like), and specify the orange DNS, who is 80.10.246.2, 80.10.246.129

This problem is annoying because the users of livebox is numerous in france...
