I have found the cause of this problem. I am able to fix and duplicate the 
network issues. I added these lines to /etc/hosts after the local host info: buzz-pr bcubed buzzard deacon bilbo

and the network died during a download and needed to be  restarted.

I removed them and every thig worked ok.... I put them back and it failed.

Why would adding this to /etc/hosts cause this type of problem?
