Weird connection problem

This is kind of odd. Recently set up the Mandriva 2006 beta 3. Had a few headaches getting it installed (Most namely that the nVidia drivers provided with it didn't want to work with my card, same with the vga, and vesa would cause it to hang). Finally got those settled out, seems to be up and working fine now.

However, for some reason, trying to use the network seems a bit... iffy. It may work or it may not. Bring up a browser, may be able to bring up google, click on a link there, it may load or it may just hang on 'connecting to ..." until it times out. It happens with either firefox or konquerer (Though for some reason, Konquerer seems a little less affected, you can actually move around a little bit with it whereas with FF you're lucky to get one page to load). It also only seems to be affected when you try to find something new, downloading a ten meg file worked without any problems. No problems at all in Windows with it. You can also usually get to the dsl modem configuration page by typing in the ip address for that.

Also, and I do think it likely this is related, I keep getting messages that "Interactive firewall has blocked a port probe from" or something like that. The exact 'from' addresses varies a little bit but they do always have the qwest in them, which is our dsl provider.

This is a Dell Dimension 8400 system, the ethernet adapter's a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx.

You'd be better off reporting bugs in a beta version to the Mandriva cooker mailing list and/or to so that the developers can work on them before the release comes out.
