Don't think so. Firefox is working normally (except when trying to enter on http://archive.ubuntu.com)

resolver 'archive.ubuntu.com'

    domain gateway.name
    search gateway.name
    nameserver 192.x.x.x

netstat -rn
ifconfig or iwconfig or iwlist for wireless networks
--You could also use traceroute to trace your network connections to either an IP address or dns name..
apt search traceroute
i traceroute - Traces the route taken by packets over an
