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:
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?
I really don't know ... 8-/
