Can resolve ips, but cannot browse.
Hi, I'm having a somewhat weird problem with my home network. After about kernel version 2.6.13, I have not been able to browse the internet, causing me to revert back to Slackware with it's good old 2.4 kernel.
Well, really, I can browse certain sites, like google, my isp's, and even this site, but for any others,and most sites, the browser sits with a blank page saying "Waiting for blahblah.com". This is true for any browser I use.
The spec of my computers is irrelevant, as this happens with all the computers in my house. The problem happens with both wireless and ethernet connected PCs. I have tried both usb and pci wireless cards (Netgear wpn111, wg311v2, wg311fs) and even one built into my new motherboard with 'real' Linux drivers (not using ndiswrapper)
My router, a Netgear wgr614 v1, does have its latest firmware. It also seems to happen with distros with newer kernels (i.e with kernel 2.6.13 or newer)
I have recompiled many a kernel disabling ipv6, which I thought was the problem, but it turns out it is not.
Here is some information that I think might be relevant:
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:15:AF:0B:4B:60

Here is a ping of Google, which I can browse (but not any links found in searches)

And here is one of a site which I cannot browse:
