HI there,
trying to download packages during opkg install curently fails on my
newly installed FR. opkg update works fine, but then, I get

root at om-gta02:~# opkg install classpath
Installing classpath (0.97.2-r4) to root...
Collected errors:
 * Failed to download,
error 0
 * Failed to download classpath. Perhaps you need to run 'opkg update'?
root at om-gta02:~# wget
wget: bad address ''
root at om-gta02:~# ping
ping: bad address ''
root at om-gta02:~# ping
PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from seq=0 ttl=56 time=13.965 ms
64 bytes from seq=1 ttl=56 time=13.513 ms

--- ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 13.513/13.739/13.965 ms

So, ping does not work, wget does not work, but to other hosts things
seems to be better. Any hints?
