Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| I've configured WiFi on a fresh FSO image the same way I had on a 2008.2
| image--by creating a wpa_supplicant.conf file and editing
| /etc/network/interfaces.  This configuration worked on the 2008.2 image
| but when I try implementing it on an FSO image, I cannot download
| anything.  I can ping sites and when using wget, I can connect to them,
| but downloading never commences.  It's not a DNS issue because ping and
| wget seem to be able to resolve correctly.  Any thoughts?

Sounds specific to tcp transport, ping is ICMP and DNS usually UDP.
Maybe connect to a local Linux box and run tcpdump on there to study
what it sees from the connection action.
