If any of you are having trouble with accessing certain web sites in Linux, here's the fix. It's a problem with TCP window scaling that causes certain sites to stall:
sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling=0
If you are running linux as normal user (which I'm assuming most of you are), you need to precede this command with "sudo" or just "su -" and type the root password, then execute the command as quoted above. Any questions can be PM'd to me. Thanks!
EDIT: To have this work every time you run your system, you need to put that line of code into /etc/rc.local so that it executes at boot time. Hope this helped a lot of folks.
EDIT2: Alternatively, you can put this code, without the "sysctl -w" part, into /etc/sysctl.conf. Works either way, but not both at the same time.
