Selective Internet Traffic?


Hello all...noob question...I'm running SUSE 9.1 Pro on a Dell Inspiron 8500 laptop using the onboard Broadcom NIC (BCM4401, I think) with my DSL rotuer as the default gateway, and I'm having a bit of a problem with internet traffic.

Most major sites (google, yahoo, cnn.com) don't load on this connection. There appears to be no problem at the DNS level, as the host resolves, and the Mozilla status bar just hangs at "connecting to <site>..." No error message, no alert of a timeout, nothing.

A lot of other sites (LQ, for example) seem to work just fine, although the only common element between the sites that work is that they all seem to be somewhat lower-traffic. I have no idea why that would matter, but it seems to. Additionally, pinging the sites that don't come up in the web browser works fine. I have tried pinging yahoo, google, download.mozilla.org, and a bunch of other sites I couldn't access, and they all ping.

Any suggsestions as to what might be causing this?

Thanks, y'all.

Yeah, yeah, I know, but I had tried Konqueror, Lynx, Mozilla 1.7ish, and the latest stable release of Firefox, and it turns out that whenever I connected to the DSL router, it was blowing out my DNS server and replacing it with its own IP, so I configured it in YaST and edited /etc/resolve.conf, and all systems are go. Thanks.
