Hi ann kok!

The following aritcle explains all:

For what it may be worth, I once lived in a place where the DSL modem
also contained a DNS server which did not properly handle IPv6 DNS
queries.  Fedora comes with IPv6 on and up so I could  browse to some
local sites (which apparently used the alternate DNS server) but to
anything common like Google or Yahoo, it would time out looking up the
address.  In the process I found out that you can do the following
about it::

1. If you have access to the modem and can update the firmware that
may well fix it.
2. For testing and to simply browse using Firefox you can type
"about:config" in the URL line which will give you large menu of setup
preferences in a search environment.  Typing "ipv" in the search
window should yield a "network.dns.disableIPv6" which is set to
"false" and by setting to "true" will disable IPv6 DNS queries.
3. You can edit out the modem's DNS server in /etc/resolv.conf and
assuming you have another accessable server there browsing will be
fine until resolv.conf is edited - likely by your
DHCP client sometime in the future.

Have Fun!
