Got a weird one. I just setup mint 8 on a friends older pc. She had it for a bit all updates were done, then started having some web issues.
I have no idea what she did or what happened but she couldn't browses and the connection was connected but couldn't seem to do anything. I connected it via wire, did some updates with apt (was a couple one was a crypto 5 library), deleted her old mozilla dir and then tried again.
It connected and seems to be fine for wifi. I can look at other pages, but it just hangs on google.com or .ca. Other pc's on the same network using dhcp, same wifi etc can get to google no problem. But her pc wont bring it up. Facebook and others i browse threw seem fine.
This seems very od to me, any help here?
