Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have ubuntu 14.04. Though internet works fine for windows 7, in ubuntu I cannot access certain sites as yahoo(yahoo cricket, yahoo finance etc. works, but yahoo, yahoo mail does not), facebook, etc, but google works. I tried several measures reading on the net forums, like, scaling windows, changing MTU, changing dns to google dns etc, but nothing works. Please help.

Assuming that you can't get to http://yahoo.com, can you post the output of ping -c 1 yahoo.com and the header info displayed by curl -v http://yahoo.com, i.e. the lines before the html starts? –  Stefan Schmiedl Jun 2 '14 at 8:35
