Thanks to everyone (8 persons so far) who replied to my question - I
greatly appreciate the help. Yes, I believe that the problem must be a
Windows proxy server - it's a school, and if I'm not mistaken, a proxy
server can be configured to block pornographic web sites (correct me if
I'm wrong). I'll have to check this tomorrow, as I'm not at the school
right now (it's night here - I'm in Taiwan).
Briefly, to answer some of the questions posed...

Sorry, I just fixed that. Thanks for telling me.

Yes, the output of ifconfig looks very good.

Unfortunately, not. Interestingly, I learned that the old gateway (5
years old) was installed by a contractor, and it ran FreeBSD! No one at
the school understood how to configure it, and they just replaced it
with a nice new shiny Windows 2000 box because they thought it would be
More experiments tomorrow. Thanks again,
