This is very strange. The fact that you can ping sites but not get to
them via http is crazy.
Also your set-up really makes no sense to me.
I need you to be sure of some things before we can help you. You mention
that the Linux box goes "through" the Windows XP box.
Is this really true?
For example - is Internet Connection Sharing enabled on XP?
When you look at your network connections, does one of them say "shared"?
Could you also please provide the output of:
1> ipconfig /all on Windows.
2> ifconfig -a on Linux.
3> route -n on Linux.
4> Your router's IP address.
P.S. It sounds to me like up2date didn't mess this up at all, from what
you're been posting it looks like a very wrong set-up if I understand
you correctly, in which case I am surprised it worked at all.
