I tried lynx, it did display with www.google.com and other web pages,
but I have never played with lynx before, not sure it worked fine or
The mail had problem as well, it could not connect to gmail pop server
in most time, but I could ping that. The mail did connecte to pop
gmail server sometime. The other thing I have to mention that ping
time was about 200ms - 800ms, not sure that would cause the brower and
mail problem or not?
