    Red face Internet address problem...


    Ok just set-up a internet share connection from my windows box (just because I have not installed linux on it yet, and now that I have this problem I wanta try and fix it... ) anyway... the linux boxes on my network will surf the net great, but with one problem... will not load some sites... like tumblr.com, I can access the site from all windows boxes on the network, but the Linux boxes will just say 'Loading..." it will never come up and say 'page not found'... instead it just says it has 'connected to site' and then says 'Loading...' I have tried to manually enter the DNS for my connection, that does not help... any ideas guys...

    Totally "LOST"...

    Interesting. tumblr.com comes right up for me. Can you post some of the other sites you cannot get?

    Are you able to ping tumblr?
    You say you manually entered you DNS settings? Are you sure that the servers you specified are resolving correctly?

    Dapper Dan : Here is a list of the other sites that will not load:

    myspace.com
    blogtv.com
    formspring.me
    photobucket.com
    tinypic.com
    ustream.com

    rokytnji : the pages do not load in any browser used FireFox, Epiphany, or Konqueror

    jayd512 : when I ping tumblr.com this is the output:

    HTML Code:

    seems to me that the DNS is ok... the browser always says 'site found' then says 'loading...' and just does nothing after that... the data for whatever reason just will not load into the browser...

    All those site work perfectly for me. I did notice most used flash. What about the ones where you have to sign in? Is flash on the other side of those sign ins? Do you have flash player plugin installed on your computer? Is it the current version?

    Flash is installed... I can watch UTUBE video and sign-in to other sites with no problems... not thinking it's flash related... but I run a quick check right now...

    Just checked and I have flash 10.0.45.2-release. i386... so not thinking that is the problem... like I said this is something really weird... I have pulled many hairs out trying to figure this problem out...

    Have a look at your /etc/resolve.conf and see if it appears in order. Here's mine as a reference...
