2. Correct me if im wrong but it sounds like you are obtaining your ip via dhcp...if this is the case

The your router or modem might not have decent dns injection settings...

Preferably you want to hard code your dns on you linux box in your resolve.conf file...try using googles servers first not loopback...

8.8.8.8
4.4.4.4

Then leave loopback as last

127.0.0.1

Same goes if you have a modem or router providing dhcp ip to your box you need to make sure it is injecting more dns than just your internet providers dns..it could be flaky..
