Subject: networking broken after install
Date: Wed, 20 Jun 2007 20:01:30 -0600
Package: unknown
Version: etch
I have installed debian on two different machines and neither will load 
web pages after the install.  I have no firewall or proxy and connect 
via DSL to my ISP (, i.e. direct connection to the internet.

I am successfully running: FreeBSD, Plan9, Windoz, OS-X and all work and 
load web pages perfectly after installation.

I installed debian on an i386 and a powerpc and neither will load web 
pages.  I tried all the browsers installed with the "desktop" option 
from the installed process, on both.

The initial install was over the same network and worked flawlessly.

Why don't web pages load after the install?

The error message is ALWAYS. the connection timed out, the server is 
either down or busy or your network is broken.  with the debian and 
freebsd boxes side by side with the same browsers, the freebsd box loads 
ok and debian times out.

what gives

the disappointed

ps: i will keep these boxes loaded with debian for two weeks in case 
anyone out there wishes to fix the broken installaion and then put on 
some system that works.

closing as the two weeks are long due ;-/ and because there is no useful
