  1. Disabled IPV6 ...By editing the file /etc/default/grub and changing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ipv6.disable=1 quiet splash"
  2. Changed default DNS to Google Public DNS

I have Ubuntu Precise 12.04
eg site.
UPDATE1: It is successfully pinging and both Google DNS Servers( and Network Tools (Ubuntu Default)!
UPDATE2: Result for wget was as follows
