I have finally got rid of win 7 and installed Fedora 19 on my laptop.
Everything works except for the usb-networking...

I can ping any site on the internet but cannot browse it - have tried all curl, lynx, firefox - without success
also I have tried to flush the iptables and manually set policy for INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT to ACCEPT.
I have completely run out of ideas...
pls help, will be really glad
MORE information: the connection is provided by my Motorola Xoom (MZ601) tablet via USB tethering.
I have just found out that HTTPS works but HTTP still does not.
I set the tablet's USB to 'Debugging' mode and !!!VOILA!!! now both HTTP and HTTPS work.
I would love to know the reason... nonetheless the problem is solved (strange - in windows it worked even in normal mode - without usb debugging...)
