looks like you are right. After experimenting a bit, it looks like there
is a timeout at work somewhere:
If I try to connect to a non previously resolved name, after some quite
long time, it works.
looking into /etc/rc.conf, /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts:
-are you on DHCP?
-If not, what 'defaultrouter' setting?
-and what is in /etc/resolv.conf?
-are you behind a firewall?
-are you setting the browser to use a proxy?
-and what about NAT, routed, named?
The Netopia ADSL gateway has an integrated hub to which all machines are
connected. DHCP is in use and the gateway act as a dnscache.
what I find strange is that nslookup/dig works fine.
