    Angry 11.10 -- Cannot connect to any site, failure at software lvl, log viewer unusable

    I'm not sure it both problems are connected but I fear they are:

    1. I cannot connect to any site fully, by that I mean it gets only as far as getting the title of the site (not always), ping doesnt work, host www.example.com works, dig www.example.com works. After a while it just times out.

    2. Log file viewer increases in memory usage (both ram and swap) until it turns "uninterruptable" and kills itself (in terminal it said: "Killed"). The log viewer is unusable, and so is the whole system until it kills itself.



    Ubuntu 11.10 - latest upgrade 32-bit
    I worked perfectly before. I dont know what changed for it to stop working now (has been days now)

    I rebooted into windows, it all works, rebooted back to Ubuntu, changed the kernels, still the same effect. I have 2 other comps that use the same splitter, they are unaffected, (one debian and the other ubuntu 10.10)

    I ran virtualbox (gNewSense) the internet worked like a charm, like always.

    Which leads me to my conclusion its a software level thing.

    I also disabled many services, so if they interfere or are broken I can reinstall: cups, ssh, apache2, lighttpd, ircd-hybrid, openarena server, fail2ban, bluetooth, and denyhosts. No change...

    Oh, I have 2 network cards, both fixed onto the motherboard, I switched the ethernet wire to the other still no change, I "down"ed the eth{0,1} so that only one works, no change, I reconnceted and restarted, nothing helps

    All I know is my router had ~5 ports forwarded to my comp, and a couple of times the internet started to load, but each time I forwarded an port, it failed almost right away, the connection just stops after time as well...


    So any ideas anyone?
    I'm about ready to switch distros for good, especially because of gnome 3...or throw my comp out the window...

    Code:
    # ip route show
    and
    Code:
    ifconfig
    also:

    Code:
    cat /etc/network/interfaces

    also I forgot to add, the problem seems to have gone away (<1 week been no problem, at least none I can see when I am awake).

    1. I reinstalled my gnome-system-log and it started working again without crashing

    2. i removed everything i had in crontab (was only one thing each in user and sudo)

    3. i have yet to port forward any ports to my comp and open up some ports i closed in firestarter -- I did this cuz I thought it caused problems for my connection.

    4. I started turning off my comp at night, i only restart if there's a kernel update, and even then, not until it crashes or it gets too slow...

    problem comes back if I route a port to the comp., it breaks down instantly. So it works as long as I never route any ports to Ubuntu...

    any ideas any1?
