Here is one that has me stumped.

I have a Realtek network card:
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)

I have the default gateway set correctly and no outbound filtering on the border firewall (Netgear FVS338).

I can access anything on the local network directly.
I can access external sites through a proxy on the network.
I can't access external sites directly.

I have a laptop next to me that works fine.

I've rebooted the firewall, but it doesn't help.

Hello Mccraky,

Your issue states clearly there is a problem in the default routing (0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0). Please verify the kernel route entries.
May be by mistake the destination n/w is wrongly added towards the router IP address.

Refer the following link for route addition on ubuntu,

Good Luck!

Try running a traceroute on the server and compare it to the same command on the laptop.  Posting those results might be helpful.

No full solution to the actual problem was found.  Substituting another card did get around the problem though it is using the only PCI slot in the machine, which I might need for a better sound card later.
