this issue started 1 month ago. Let me explain. I'm running 12.04 x64 with unity. Connected through wireless. Every time I launch either firefox or google-chrome, these browser need at leat 25-30 sec to launch my home page (whatever homepage that be). Used to work perfectly. Opera works a bit better but still.... I already tried firfox in safe mode whithout any extension activated, switch from network-manager to wicd, erased all my configuration files under /home....nothing helped. Tried also to tweak my router...but nothing. To make it even more "funny" all my other laptops don't have this issue...in 1 sec there goes my home page....;)

Please...does anybody have a clue?

Thanks

Did you observe this latency to other network services or only HTTP ?

You can check latency with ping command to another laptop/server on your network.

You can also check the time to perform a DNS request : time nslookup www.ubuntu.com

Could you check your network configuration (ifconfig -a, route)

You can also clean your navigator's cache, cookies and so on... before doing tests.

No lag on DNS... you can also use wireshark to look deeper about what's going on the network interface when you start the browser. –  Yanok Sep 30 '12 at 14:36
