using firestarter, dhcp..very slow

help,

I have one internet connection that I am wanted to share with a second computer. I am now using firestarter to do this.

The second computer connects via dhcp, and it almost works, only, the connection is very slow; it can connect to google, for example, but the google logo does not load completely (or maybe its just so slow to load).

the internet speed is fine on the router computer.

do you have any ideas on solving this?

thank you so much.

More detail please: How do you connect to the internet (LAN+DHCP, PPP, PPPoE, PPTP, ...)? How are the two computers connected? What else is there to say? And what is firestarter and why do you use it?

when DHCP is slow sounds like packets are getting delayed or not being let through at all. try modifying your firestarter/iptables configuration.

ok, firestarter is a firewall that does not use iptables. its a simple point and click program so i can share my internet connection.

the connection itself (adsl pppoe) is fine, but on the second machine, it is very slow, pages do not finish loading.

indeed it does use iptables, it is merely a frontend to what normally is done on the commandline. after starting firestarter, simply take a look at iptables -L.
