i have Debian Woody running on my server/router for quite a time now, and everything works fine with my win2k machine. Last week i installed Debian Testing/Unstable at my notebook, and nearly everything is running fine .. *nearly* everything. Somehow DNS is "broken".
Here the facts.
if i do a "nslookup hostname" or "host hostname" i get an ip within one second.
but now if i do "ping hostname" its takes between 6 to 10 seconds until the hostname is resolved and the first ping goes out.
Same thing with lynx or firefox or whatever
As you can imagine browsing is a real pain that way.
I tried several DNS Servers, i also set up a DNS at my Router - no change.
as i said, i tried several other nameservers (those are from t-online now), all reachable and working good on my windows machine. i also tried it without the "search" line.
iface eth0 inet static
192.168.0.1 is my router of course
i don't have any clue what else to do ..
one thing i noticed .. i got freenet.de at first as apt-source, when this hostname was looked up it looked like ipv6 ##:##:##:## style but i don't use ipv6 (afaik ..). i changed the line in /etc/apt/sources.lst and never saw something like ipv6 again.
maybe someone here has an idea?
