No access to internet from Konsole, Konqueror works fine


Hi

I'm having this strange problem where I can't access the internet from konsole (at least, I've tried wget and ssh). I have no problems with Konqueror though. Apparently nobody else is having this problem, because I can't find any reference to it on any forum or on the internet in general.

If i were to ssh username @ some.server.com from konsole it just hangs and eventually times out. However, if I go to http : / / some.server.com in konqueror (which doesn't respond as there is no http server at that url), and leave konqueror open, I can ssh to it from the konsole with no problems. The same thing happens with wget, I can't download anything until I type the server address into konqueror first. It's not just the one server either, it's anywhere on the internet.

I've tried with numerical IPs as well, but get the same problem, so it's not a DNS issue.

I'm also not behind a proxy or anything, so a simple export http_proxy won't solve the problem either.

I'm currently running KDE on SuSE 10.1, using madwifi drivers on an orinoco proxim gold wireless card. I've had no troubles with the card other than this, and I used to run Fedora Core 5 which didn't have this problem (but didn't have as nice of an interface for wireless networking as SuSE).

Kernel version is 2.6.16.13-4-smp

How about firewalling? That would sound very odd to me too, but check out (with root privileges)

Code:
iptables -L
to see if you have iptables configured somehow. Can't really figure out anything else right now..but it can't be a big problem if you get http connections right away. You might also want to try ethereal or similar app to see how the connections are started and where they end if they end..

I'm not so good with iptables, but this is what it gives (default with SUSE 10.1). In fact it looks kind of insecure if anything. I'll try ethereal when I get home tonight.

Thanks,

P.S. iptables -L gives:
