I was reading and using Gentoo. I unplugged my cable modem. I plugged it back in. Nothing! I rebooted, nothing. I shutdown, nothing. I unplugged and plugged it back in again. Nothing. I couldn't open any sites. The connection wouldn't complete.
I didn't know what to do. The first thing I thought of was /etc/hosts. I opened it up, removed the line that has ::1 localhost
which is (::1 gentoo) on mine
It instantly worked. I didn't know, but I knew everything was working perfectly. What is the problem? Can not having this line cause problems? I read it's IPv6, but I didn't find anything good to read about it.
Anyways, now it's working fine again. I hope I did correct this problem. If so, it was definitely easy to guess.

No, it's still happening. I put it back in the file, and my connection quit working. I deleted it again, and it connected.
I fixed it all by myself.

It was on the second line, but both times it would not work until I deleted it and then it would instantly work. I never used IPv6 USE flags or anything, if you were wondering ...
