At any rate, I added one of movies.netflix.com's IP addresses to my hosts file and still get the same results.

Check this one out as it is what I was trying to explain before. If this still doesn't work, there has to be another reason why some sites are not working on your gnu linux. Adding specific IP addresses for every non-working site doesn't seem logical.

I tried echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps and that didn't work.

So are you saying I should try google's name servers? I tried the name servers that my router has on it. The weird thing is that it is only an issue with sites using authentication and https and stuff (although not gmail.....) Anyway, if it were DNS would not all sites be unreachable?

so far I've found it to make me unable to sign into netflix in any browser, unable to post to Facebook in Firefox (but able to with Google), unable to post to certain groups in flickr and unable to delete posts in others, and unable to sign into Twitter. And my bluray player and Roku cannot reach netflix anymore. But everything works 100% perfectly with Windows. This is so frustrating.

Also tried turning off my router and unplugging it for 15 minutes, but it did not change IP address

It works in Windows but not in Linux.
So you are able to at least access the site but not log in?

And nameserver x.x.x.x don't do anything?
by x I mean the dns ip provided by your router box or that of google

http://how-to.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_...ly%29_in_Linux

Are you blocking cookies?
Did you try a live distribution?

Facebook should work. Something is not kosher.

See this:

First of all, everything works perfectly in Windows.

I can get to the landing page of any of these sites. (If I clear cookies) If I try to login or if, via cookies, it expects me to be logged in, it just hangs. The browser spins its wheels metaphorically and literally and then I get a "this page may have moved or be offline" page. In the case of Facebook, for some reason since I'm already logged in with Chrome, I can post. But Firefox will not post. My wife cannot login (she's also using Linux).

I changed nameserver to the name servers provided by my provider. I have not tried Google yet. I will try it momentarily.

I don't think I'm blocking cookies but since my ROKU and BLURAY PLAYER don't work - I don't think that's really an issue. I tried a live distro in a vm on my windows computer and it didn't work.

Update - twitter is now working for me. I have changed nothing. Netflix and flickr continue to be broken - they have been the most consistent in all of this. Could it be something wonky going on with the network on Verizon's side of things? This inconsistency is so annoying. I wish it were all consistent across all sites and computers. I will give the google nameservers a try to see if that changes anything.

Something I've noticed by haven't written - the icon here (linuxquestions.org) that shows what OS I'm on. (left-most of the 3) shows as a broken icon to me

Added in the google 8.8.8.8 DNS to resolve.conf (via network manager) and confirmed it changed the resolve.conf. It's still not working for netflix. I can't login. I'm on a different computer than before - so it's across computers. That was even Fedora and this is Lubuntu.

Switching user agents didn't work - of course. Because that would be impossible on my bluray player and Roku box.

Taking a look at my router, here's what the port forwarding says for my windows box:
Port Forwarding Services:
Teredo
libtorrent/0.15.3.0 at 192.168.1.3:54538
libtorrent/0.15.3.0 at 192.168.1.3:6881
libtorrent/0.15.3.0 at 192.168.1.3:6881
libtorrent/0.15.3.0 at 192.168.1.3:54040
libtorrent/0.15.3.0 at 192.168.1.3:50240
Skype UDP at 192.168.1.3:6416 (1518)
Skype TCP at 192.168.1.3:6416 (1518)

There is nothing listed for my Linux computer. The Playstation had some UDP thing.

Can't see anything else that could possibly be affecting anything. (Not that I'm saying these are affecting it either, it's just the only thing I could think of)

If it is working on windows, it should work on linux without any tweaking, aside from those occasional dns issues. This is really odd. How is your router setup?

perhaps "proof" that verizon's not doing this on purpose: I can't sign in to the verizon website.

I think it is this one small thing throwing it all off. Is your network infected with a virus?

Why not call verizon?

I did call them. Their tech support is just going through a script. They were useless.

Also, what part of the network would have caught the virus? And why would it not be affecting the windows computer?
