I have a neo freerunner, on which i'm installing gentoo. I need to run layman -S but it fails to download repositories.xml from When i try to download the latter with wget it fails also: the connection is established (syn is acked and the http GET is sent), but there is no response from the peer.

But i can download other pages (i've tried and google) with wget, so i assume the connection is alive. The ping to is ok as well.

Can you please direct me where to look for the problem?

iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS --clamp-mss-to-pmtu
