This issue has thrown me for a loop. I am missing something stupid and I need a fresh set of eyes.

I was able to connect just fine using Kubuntu 10.04. I upgraded to 10.10 and then to 11.04.

I tried to logon and I get the login screen just fine everything looks like it should except status UNKNOWN.

I completely removed eve and resintalled. Same thing.

I ran the instructions in another post about manually configuring wine with the patch as the fix. Deleted eve and resintalled. Same thing.

I decided to try pinging to see if it was something simple. Ping destination host unreachable. I connected to my router and pinged the and I was able to ping through the router. Went back to the machine and tried to ping Host unreachable. Tried to ping that went through fine. I did a traceroute on and the first hop that shows up is my machine and that is it. It does not try to go to another hop it does not hit the router. When I do a traceroute to the first hop is the router and it goes on from there just fine. I have checked the ufw status and it is inactive. I can surf the internet just fine and I am typing on the computer right now. I also tried telnetting and got the same thing unable to contact host. I am not sure how but somewhere there is a routing policy or something in my system blocking eve. This is the strangest thing I have ever seen.

Any suggestions short of DNR Kubuntu would be appreciated, as that is the only thing I can think of to do next. I am really regretting moving from an LTS client.
