As you say, weird.

Can you try the commands
ping gmail.com
and
ping 64.233.161.107
while you (a) don't have anything open; (b) just have mozilla open; (c)
have konqueror and mozilla open; and (d) just have konqueror open?

It sounds as though konqueror is doing something to establish a
connection. No idea what, though.

What sort of Internet connection do you use? ADSL? If so, do you have a
modem or a router or something else, and does it connect via Ethernet or
USB (or something else[1])?
