And I was just sent this link from our very own NSA:

Disable IPv6 and AirPort when Not Needed
Open the Network pane in System Preferences. For every
network interface listed:
•     If it is an AirPort interface but AirPort is not required,
click "Turn AirPort off."
•     Click "Advanced."  Click on the TCP/IP tab and set
"Configure IPv6:" to "Off" if not needed.  If it is an
AirPort interface, click on the AirPort tab and enable
"Disconnect when logging out."
