Gonna take a long shot here... Check on /proc/sys/net/ipv4 if tcp_ecn is
enabled. Some routers silently drop packets if the ECN bit is set...
maybe your router is one of those...
Also , do a tcpdump when trying to connect from bigboy to an external
webserver. This way you will know if the data is going through the
firewall.. if it is , the next step is trying to check the router , as
it is the most probable cause...
