While trying to find out why ebay and other pages took ages to load and dns
services sometimes misbehaved (eg Can't find ebay search) I took a look at
what was going on with ethereal.
Essentially whenever there is any eth0 activity going to the web or an arp
from the router something inserts a number of unrelated dns requests into and
after the transmission. They are always for servers that I have browsed
Is this normal operation?
My concern is that it's caused by something that has found it's way on to my
If it is konq refreshing some sort of dns cache/lookup how do I turn it off
and is there any way of playing with it's settings?
I have the main cache turned off. It would need to be very large to be of much
use and I wonder about the relative efficiency with modern high line speeds.
