I am having some strange networking problems with Ubuntu 11.10.
This is a fresh install but this same machine worked fine with 11.10 before. I actually reinstalled with the very same CD and there has been no hardware changes to my computer. This is on wired Ethernet.
In firefox I can't post to phpbb forums (I hit submit and it keeps loading while nothing happens) and uploading to imgur is stuck at 0%. I can't log into email sometimes.
In both chromium and Midori (both use webkit), I can sometimes post to phpbb forums other times it does not work (same as firefox). Imgur uploads go to 100% then are stuck.
I can't log into email sometimes. I can't login to this very site (using win7 for post). Also when I tried to authenticate to askubuntu using openID and launchpad, I gave my launchpad username, signed in to launchpad and when I was asked to allow to authenticate to Ask Ubuntu, the page would be stuck loading then give me a Error 408 Request Timeout. So I can't even log in to askUbuntu from Ubuntu. Note: Everything works fine on the same machine with Windows 7. I tried disabling the firewall (ufw) and that made no difference. I really want to punch my computer as hard as I can. I am so close to changing distros, heck when I used gentoo I had better networking!
