I tried yesterday night, but the output is quite complicated. I only
noticed, while Epiphany was trying to access Google, many lines with
"www.google.it" and, I think, the actual IP address for Google. This
should mean that DNS is not the problem here. Also, "traceroute
www.google.it" immediately outputs several lines with IP addresses and
times in milliseconds, but it starts printing "*" after some lines,
which should mean that Google could not be reached but, at the same
time, that the name was resolved immediately. The same conclusion comes
from a "ping www.google.it", which answers immediately everytime is

It's 0 already.
