The browser behaves as though it has a connection to the LAN but not
to the net.
Here are some strange results:
# ping google.com        result=0% packet loss
# ping www.redhat.com    result=100% packet loss

I can get an http connection to redhat.com, but I can't get a solid
connection with google.

Almost every website I try behaves exactly like google does.
tcpdump is only a verbose explanation of what I've already said.

It isn't iptables because I disabled the rules.  I thought they might
have been getting in the way too, but they're not.

Is there anything that could have been to the network settings that
could have cause something like this?

thank you
