What distro are you using, and what browser are you trying to open web pages in? Do you have your browser configured to use any proxies?

Do you ping on name or IP?

Kind regards

Have a look in /etc/systl.conf and see if your system is configured to use IPv6 or not, that could possibly be the issue. Also open about:config in firefox, and type in "network.dns.disableIPv6" without the quotes as the filter, and try disabling it and trying again. Sometimes that will cause issues.

Edit - Damn, repo beat me to it.

As jimtony suggested, any firewall, proxy?
What happens if you use another browser?

Kind regards

Did you look in the settings from firefox?
Also make sure
Code:
file => work off line
is disabled.
To see the rules from the firewall
Code:
iptables -L
Kind regards
