Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 beta, installation went fine and all programs are working smooth. Just this one weird network problem. Some sites simply are not opening and loading forever. For example, and youtube are working well, but and many other are not opening at all, or are loaded partly. One thing i noticed is that on all of those pages on firefox status bar is message "Looking up for" (or similar remote resources) message appearing all the time (even on this page, but it somehow has loaded and working). I should mention that i tried those pages to open on windows OS on this same machine, and they opened without problems. So i am guessing that it has to be some sort of network configuration problems on Ubuntu. What could cause such problem?

Have you tried with Chrome ? – Ye Lin Aung Apr 3 '10 at 3:39

I resolved my problem. Turned out that my router wasn't configured properly - it gave it's own IP as DNS name server address instead of ISP DNS name servers IP. Now when i configured router properly everything is working well. Thank you.

I had several problems in 10.04 on my toshiba laptop. I've tried several fixes over the past 2 weeks and no resolution. Tonight, I upgraded to 10.10. Issues are gone. Some pages take 1 second longer to load than other pages but most/all pages seem to load in under 2 seconds. Takes an 1 hour and a half to upgrade but so far its been worth it. I also suggest backing up before/after upgrade. To upgrade to 10.10 go to System>Administration>Update manager. Click on upgrade to 10.10. I'm not sure why/what fixed the problem but it did.

I also had a problem with 10.04 network disabled on boot. It resolved this issue as well. Hope this helps someone....

I think you have just been upvoted by @Diogo but I am 'countering' that because the question was about 10.04 when 10.10 was not available and an alternative (specific) answer has been accepted. – pnuts Dec 2 '12 at 10:32
