I have an iphone, nook, and a windows PC that surf without issue. My minimal install of Gentoo 20130110 fails at links http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml
with a host not found message. I can actively ping www.goggle.com
, as written, no problem. Switched to LivdDVD 20121221 and start Konquerer. Every web site I try, same problem - Unknown host and additional information contains host not found.
Switched to Fedora 18 and start Konquerer. Same problem - Unknown host and additional information contains host not found. I can take the PC to work and connect to the network there (different ISP) and everything works fine. I contacted my ISP and was told that Konquerer uses HTTP (didn't think that odd) and that they were blocking port 80 (along with several other ports). I am going to start developing embedded control systems with Gentoo at work and I need to have it at home as well (I really like the Portage concept). Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
