Some websites are not opening in my system. I am using Ubuntu 12.10. Earlier, when I was using Ubuntu 10.10,11.10 there was no such issue. The problem was started in ubuntu 12.04, but it remained the same even after formatting and installing ubuntu 12.10. I have tried Firefox as well as Chromium and I am sure the issue is not with the browser. same websites are opening perfectly with Windows.

Google, Twitter and Ubuntu related websites are running perfect. Other websites like www.downrightnow.com, easy-mantra.com, facebook.com, sourceforge.net are not opening. Installed dual boot with win xp. Ubuntu 12.10 is 64 bit. Processor Intel core i3, RAM 4GB.

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf

cat /etc/resolv.conf ? –  One Zero Jan 28 '12 at 14:54
Please provide a few examples of websites that open, and some of these that are not working. Also, it would be very useful if you pasted the output of command cat /etc/resolv.conf in your post. And I guess you meant Ubuntu 10.10 instead of 10.01? –  Rafał Cieślak Jan 28 '12 at 15:50

I am having this issue with 12.04. Sometimes a site will load no content and the Chrome or Firefox wheel keeps spinning forever. Sometimes the whole page loads but the wheel keeps spinning forever. It is highly frustrating. –  max Aug 29 '12 at 23:21
