[SOLVED, see below]
I'm using Slack 12 (fresh install) on an Acer Aspire 1690 with an ipw2200 wifi card. I connect to the Internet through a Comtrend CT635 modem/gateway, with DHCP enabled.
Everything works fine until that point : my IP address is okay, so as the DNS.
The thing is that when I'm connecting, with any browser (lynx, links, firefox, opera), I can only access a few sites (e.g google and derivatives, mozilla.org, and a few others). For the rest of them, the browsers just hang forever "waiting for" an answer.)
I've been reading through the forums and found a similar thread (i cannot post the link since this is my first post, the thread is "internet problem:Firefox can load google, but not any others!"
So as to answser suggestions that might come first :
- DNS works fine
- Ping & Telnet work
- Iptables already flushed
- I tried changing the MTU settings of my card, to no avail
- I cannot change the MRU setting of my router (not available in the interface, if someone knows how to deal with this stupid Comtrend stuff)
- Wifi works fine on every other AP under Linux
- On Windows (i'm still on dual-boot), connecting through CT635 works fine
I've been looking for information for the past months, and it's becoming a real headache problem. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated
Pardon my English.
And thanks for years of support.
