Question F10 won't resolve hostnames


Crap...!
Neither F10 32bit nor 64 bit would resolve a hostname... Firefox could open http://75.126.162.205/ but not http://linuxquestions.org...
I saw the same thing with pinging: If I pinged a hostname, it would resolve to its ip address but I got no pings or pongs...
Manually entering the DNS servers didn't fix anything...

Another weird thing is that I was able to receive upgrades after installing the 64 bit version.. However, I still had the hostname issue.

Anyone else run in to this or have a fix!?

Do you get a result running:
Code:
nslookup linuxquestions.org
I have seen issues before where there is a clash between IPv4 and IPv6, in Firefox you can change settings by browsing to about:config

If you set the value of network.dns.disableIPv6 to true, you may find that this resolves the issue (assuming the nslookup worked)

Yup, nslookup resolved it fine.... No n/w issues at the OS level...
