    Re: Cannot load certain websites in 12.04

    Here is exactly what is on the screen in my proxy settings:
    http://postimage.org/image/nn9vugd29/

    As for letting everything through the firewall, no results.

    BTW, another person I live with has Ubuntu installed and is running on the same network and had no problems from the beginning. I just don't understand why my default settings would be different from his.

    Hello,

    Something is up with your install. Instead of Automatic, make it "manual" and add the following to the correct places--don't worry, I'll tell you where.

    First, add this "184.73.185.224" to the "HTTP Proxy" bar, which should be the first one. Next, right next to it (to the right) change "port" to "8080" if it isn't already. It should look like this;

    http://s8.postimage.org/59ek5cw85/Sc...3_15_45_39.png

    However, feel free to change the current address to "207.182.158.171" with a port of "80", it might be faster than the last port. If it works, you can check out a list of ports and IPs to use from this list;

    See this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1894484&page=3 and look at his solution. He went into his Network settings and added his DNS and info. If your friend shares the same network, you can check out his settings so you can use it on your own machine. (:

    For a permanent fix to it if all else fails--since the Firewall and Networking settings is obviously perfectly fine both on your end and the provider's end--is to do a fresh install with an internet connect hooked up during it. Possibly a newly burned DVD iso, too.

    VICTORY!

    Using the second address you gave me, I am now able to access all of the sites that I mentioned. Although they do run a little slow, it is a tremendous improvement from what I was dealing with before.

    Later I will try to use the other method and copy my friend's settings to see if I gain any further improvement. If I do, Ill post it here, but for now I'll mark this as 'solved' as there have been plenty of suggestions posted.

    Thanks so much, Lightning, for your persistence in helping me with this problem and thanks to everyone else too. I appreciate it. Have a nice day.

    Hello,

    You are welcome, glad I could be of assistance, even if it was just a smidgen. Be sure to consult the forum again if you need help with something.

    As for speed, the link I gave is constantly updated with newer IP addresses and ports. Each will have different speed connections and whatnot. You can always switch between them. The bad news with this is that you would have to manually update it through the Network Settings again. Perhaps running a IP changing software through WINE might also be a solution.

    I figured that if you try the DNS suggestion, you might want some links about configuring the settings;

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DynamicDNS
    https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/server...iguration.html

    However, I would not mark this solved if I were you. The issue is not solved, just that a workaround to the problem was used. If you keep it unsolved, perhaps staff or another more knowledgeable person might see the thread and know why you are restricted the way you are and have a solution for you.

    Have a nice day too, and I hope by some miracle a reboot fixes everything for you.

    Good plan. Glad you're getting somewhere.

    Re: Cannot load certain websites in 12.04

    So, I was searching some more for some possible solutions. Mostly in the thread Lightning posted about changing the DNS settings.

    I opened up /etc/resolv.conf
    The nameserver listed is 127.0.0.1

    However, my Windows 7 DNS server is listed as 10.13.18.1

    nameserver and DNS server are the same thing, correct? Could this possibly be the issue? If so, how would I go about changing the nameserver? I read that if you edit /etc/resolv.conf , your settings will be overwritten after a reboot. I have already tried manually putting in my settings from Win7 in the Network Manager under IPv4 but the network still has problems and the nameserver stays as listed above.
