only access to google...weird!
OK this is my problem, since yesterday I have no access to any other web page except google.
This is not cache, because every link I click on the google site works (google native links, not the search results). For any other website either via the search result or by typing the address it gives a "host not found" error.
This happens on all browsers, firefox, links (terminal browser), opera.
Every other computer (3 in total) in my home network works perfectly.
I use a consumer Linksys DSL router (BEFSR41), so there is no fancy firewall nor any other exotic settings like custom IP tables or Access Control Lists.
The 3 other computers all have a static IP address.
The machine that the problem is on is a Asus m6ne laptop.
I use Debian Sarge with a custom 2.6.11-5 kernel
I have tried a static IP address on this laptop as well as using dhcp
(dhcp offers are given by the router within the specified range), both give the same result.
Until yesterday everything worked fine on the school network
For now I have found a unsecured wireless network in my neighborhood which I am using right now.
All the symptoms have the characteristics of a virus, except that this is a linux box and not windows. I checked for rootkits, none were found.
I hope anyone can help me with this.
Thanks in advance
