The error

An error occurred while loading

Timeout on server
Connection was to at port 80

The error I am getting is mentioned above. I can ping the website.

The part of the problem is solved. I have DHCP enabled router and the linux machine was not getting the gateway hence I have provided the machine static IP and gateway. But I am still unable to access google website. please help
