I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) only a few hours ago and in the process I deleted my old operating system Windows 7.
Now what's happening is that I am unable to access some websites including http://www.hotmail.com/, http://www.theatlantic.com/ and http://www.tvfanatic.com/ .
When I type in a URL in the browser and press ENTER, all I get is the Firefox waiting sign or a rotating ring. The wait is endless.
In contrast, I have no problem visiting other websites like http://www.project-syndicate.org/ or http://www.wikipedia.org/ and http://www.bbc.co.uk .
I am a non-technical guy. I was moved by the Ubuntu philosophy and decided to get rid of Windows so there is no going back. So I would be grateful to you if you could suggest what to do.
Thank you for reading and caring to reply.
