Glad you got the ethernet working....
If the dsl speed is still slow........
Have you tried disabling DHCP on the network interface and manually configuring all settings? In the GUI (computer--system config--network) choose
properties on your nic and set all the perameters in there...
If your linux systems are using dhcp to gather dns they could be instructed to use the router as a dns device which simply proxies the request.
If the nameserver is the ip address of your router then try this.
host www.prettymuchanyurl.com or use nslookup
See if either complains about lookups.
If that seems to be the case, then simply fetch the dns information from your router or provider and manually enter that into /etc/resolv.conf or if
your router has options to specify the dns servers in the dhcp server settings update those.
It might be a problem with IPv6 ,which causes slow down in DNS queries
To disable IPV6
echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf
It is probably the IPv6
If you are using Firefox:
Try turned off ipv6 in Firefox? go to about:config and
find network.dns.disableIPv6 and set it to true . Then restart firefox.
You can find other options here
if you can get to it....
