(k)ubuntu 8.04

when offline:

firefox :This document cannot be displayed while offline. To go
online, untick Work Offline from the File menu.

konq: An error occurred while loading http://localhost:8085:
Could not connect to host http://localhost:8085/.

when online:


when again offline:

problems again.

When both online & offline:

dave@dev-system:~$ ping kmotion
ping: unknown host kmotion
