I have a very strange issue and I'm completely lost as to what it could be. I've worked tech support before, so I know that this is going to sound completely crazy.
I have a laptop that dual-boots Windows 7 and Fedora 17. When I am home and using the Windows partition on my laptop I am able to access all Google sites, but when I am using the Fedora partition I can't access any Google sites. No Gmail, no Docs, no Blogger, not even advertisements sponsored by Google on other websites load. Every other website loads fine. I've verified this happens in both Chrome and Firefox.
Here's where it gets weird. If I take the laptop to work and connect it to the network there everything works fine.
Here's where it gets even weirder:
- I can ping google.com just fine, no packet loss.
- I can telnet successfully to google.com port 80.
- I ran 'wget -v http://google.com' and got a successful return.
My home ISP is Clear Internet (boo!) and their tech support has already dismissed the issue because they "do not support computers with multiple OS's" (which is BS because they couldn't list one single reason why that wouldn't work or why they don't support it).
Any help/ideas of any kind would be greatly appreciated!
