Strangest problem while connecting to the internet I ever seen
This problem is the strangest issue I ever seen during my working in computer field for nearly 6 years.
let me describe the scenario :
I had an ubuntu 10.4 box, I used it mainly for programming, virtualization & other stuff.
I've installed this box about 1 month ago, working on it everyday.
About 2 days ago problem appeared when I just opened up firefox for cheking my E-Mail.
I typed : mail.yahoo.com & nothing appeared & I just seen the famous firefox page when a networking problem is around .
I just wondered and checked the connectivity & the wire itself, but find no problem around them, while playing with firefox I just had a turned on virtualBox machine (Windows XP service Pack 3), I just checked the internet within vm & working fine, I checked my e-mail from vm (windows xp), I thought restarting the system might help to solve the problem but damn, problem didn't solved & still arounds ...
Well, I searched through websites dedicated to linux networking & forums that might help, I did anything that faced to my brain , follow another people recipes but problem did't solved for about 3 days !
Playing with primary & alternative dns didn't help, I did my best about solving the problem, disabling ipv6 from both linux networking settings & firefox itself didn't help also .
After that, I thought reinstalling the linux might help to solving the problem, but install a new version of ubuntu, 10.10, I tried it, install it but the holyshit problem still arounds !
I think this might be a bug on ubuntu distro, I tried Mint 10 & the same problem, reinstalling x64 version of fedora core & the same problem ... damn it !
It's interesting that the same settings for TD-8101G TP-Link working fine for my Windows XP, Windows 7 x64 & the problem is arounds just for my linux distros .
As I said I checked the internet for the problem & found nothing workable for me.
I thought it's better to describe the problem & maybe another people faced with that problem .
any help would be appreciated, I just will going crazy if this problem not solve anymore because microsoft windows is a fool os for me .
