I did a freash install of mandrake 8.0 and noticed something strange.
When I turn off my cable modem....my system slows down almost to the point
of where it seems it has locked up....but when I turn my modem back on
everything is fine again.
When I ran net_monitor, I noticed that my system seems to be constantly
sending and receiving packets. Now I know this is not normal becuase this
didn't happen when I installed slackware.
Has anyone had any similar problems or know what might be causing this???
