/etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts: files dns

okay ty for replying quickly, but i dont use my router for anything other than to use the internet. i dont not have my own dns or anything like IPv6. okay as for /lib/libnss_dns.so it does not exist. so maybe this is the problem. as for something blocking me, well usually when ever this happens i just through myself into DMZ, which i just did, and still nothing. im not sure if my isp has a second nameserver i will have to check.

No way of knowing for sure. However, from the previous traubleshooting, can you see why it looks like the problem is outside linux?

You can ping everywhere - you can browse. Something seems to be allowing only one application per port (hmmm... have you tried w3m? Try starting firefox on commandline)... otherwise every internet app except konqueror is broken in this specific way.

The best thing to try is a live CD.

Right - so there is something in KDE's settings on your machine stopping restricting you to one browser only.

Try creating another user and see if the problem remains.

Right - so the problem is someplace global, probably in KDE. You need to look through KDE's configuration. I don't have one here so I don't know where to look. Start with the control center, then look through configuration files. It will take a fine-tooth comb.

You sure you're not running a firewall?

Why?

Do you understand the reasoning and conclusions presented in post #23?
Do you disagree with them? Explain.

Have I harassed you yet about editing your profile so your distro and location show up?

okay, lol, lets start

i put my specific pc (192.168.0.2) in dmz, because if there were a firewall or some type of outside source blocking it, it would have no longer blocked it.

As for post #23, i do somewhat agree with them, however i have looked in the control center and found nothing, plus now that i have reformatted, (meaning reinstalling), some internet apps choose to work if they feel like it(i.e. pidigin, it signs on after 5 minutes once booted, and firefox it will only go to google sometimes). So im not sure if it is kde.

Edit your LQ profile I mean

Sounds like you may have hardware issues too.

AFAIK: HW Routers can put a firewall between the internal and external net. Unless you have specific info that this doesn't happen. Thing is, we've established that the issue ain't external when Ubuntu apps worked. If I were you, I'd just install Ubuntu and save aggreivation.
