Cable internet service piped into a consumer wireless router using either dd-wrt or Tomato firmware, and F18 or F19 installed from Live media. Physical connection is wired ethernet.

The only things related to networking I change is setting a hostname from localhost to f18s, f19s or f19q; and occasionally adding the b43 firmware if I decide to go wireless.

Booted from Live media F19 beta TC4, sendmail.service is 55ms. But when installed with no change (other than maybe the hostname) it becomes just over 1 minute.
