when I am hooked up to the network only by eth0, neither firefox nor thunderbird can connect to the internet, but they both work fine if I am connected to wireless.
other apps: portage, skype, empathy; all work fine over the ethernet

I have tried remerging. that didn't work.
I was initially using the custom-optimization USE flag, so i removed it and remerged. No luck
I tried the binaries. they did not work either
I tried epiphany, and it has the same problem.

so now I am stuck using Ubuntu instead of Gentoo if i want to use the internet

we probably need a little more to go on, for a start what do you get by way of error(s)

FIREFOX:

Firefox can't find the server at www.goodsearch.com

* Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

THUNDERBIRD:

Alert box "Failed to connect to server mail.umich.edu, Failed to connect to server pop3.live.com"

EPIPHANY:

“www.google.com” could not be found.
Check that you are connected to the internet, and that the address is correct.
If this page used to exist, you may find an archived version:

* in the Google Cache

* in the Internet Archive

SHELL:
there are no errors when I initiate these from the shell

the problems persist in a when I chroot from Ubuntu into Gentoo but only for the Gentoo instances
