Can ssh to your FR, meaning that you have network connectivity? Are you 
using USB and/or wifi networking?

If you can ssh to it, but you can't connect outbound, that usually means 
that you don't have the default gateway set properly. If you are using 
USB, try:

route del default gw
route add default gw
