Are you using AOL? If so, ensure that you:

I'll second that (even if you're not using AOL). Later distros, for some reason that is *completely* beyond me, come with IPv6 enabled as default. This causes grief that may appear either to be random or (as you might have observed) that appears to follow a spurious pattern.

Insertion of "alias net-pf-10 off" into /etc/modprobe.conf may well fix things.
