Since most of us don’t use IPV6 networks, this setting can slow down communication throughout our network. Turning this networking feature off will speed up your system.

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/aliases

Make a search this line: alias net-pf-10 ipv6
and replaced by this line: alias net-pf-10 off #ipv6

sudo gedit /etc/hosts

Comment out all the lines which has to do with Ipv6 in this file and save it then.
The final step is that you reboot the system to take effect.
Next post, I will show you how to reduce swapping to speed up your Ubuntu Linux

    Hi! You don't need to reboot, just rmmod the module and restart the network and you're done.

    What do you mean "comment out?" I am very new to Linux.

    Hi Rancy,
    In Linux environment, you put # at the beginning of the line you want to skip it.
