[SLE] KGpg, YOU, Firefox do not have full access to the net

I am running SUSE 10 RC1 on a Pentium 530 / Intel 915GAV / 512 MB RAM / 80 GB
HDD machine with an ADSL modem (I think it's a router, though I was told it's
a modem - is there such a thing as a single-user router?) connected to the
ethernet port eth0. However, I should note that the problem I am currently
reporting existed back when I used SUSE 9.3 too.
I am able to access the net fully via Konqueror, but Firefox, SeaMonkey, YOU
and KGpg do not get full access to the net. I know this because I've
installed KNetStats which shows me whenever any activity to and from the net
Using Firefox I am able to browse some sites, but not others. I've seen no
distinctive pattern to determine which kind of site is visible and which not.
I just told Firefox to download its own Flash plugin and it keeps searching
for available plugins and no result at all. KNetStats shows zero net
YOU stays for a long time at "Getting a list of mirror servers". I am able to
see occasional flashes on KNetStats, but nothing significant. And yes, my
connection is good and I've just downloaded over 2 GB of data (CD images)
over the past two days.
The exact error YOU gives is:
Cannot fetch remote server list. Only user-defined patch sources will be
Check network connection
As I said, "check network connection" is meaningless since I've just
downloaded 2 GB data on this very same network. And I can't even define any
user-defined patch sources. Any FTP or HTTP (which I tried for Java) sources
Next KGpg says:
gpg: sending key _____ to hkp server subkeys.pgp.net
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver send failed: keyserver error
As before, no activity on KNetStats.
I've tried disabling my firewall, to no avail.
Please help me. This is the final problem I'm facing with the basic Linux
installation. If this is solved I can go on to grappling with third party
applications (whether GPL or not).
