Timeouts for "some" sites may require more debugging. A site can be
having any problem or your ISP may be having a routing issue with that
specific server... hard to tell what can be happening.

Just for a few examples. This is not the connection, because I get other pages consistently, but these I am unable to gain access to at all over many attempts.

If using Firefox, you can just disable ipv6 because some sites become
painfully slow when this is enabled (about:config → filter by "ipv6" →
and set "network.dns.disableIPv6" to "true"). After that, restart Firefox/

This is what puzzles me because I definitely see no (good|logical) reason
for not getting access to the web interface from Debian. Ethernet is one
of the most standarized technologies out there so I dunno what can be
happening with that DSL modem.

Have you tried to get access by telnet ("telnet"). Some
routers do also allow to be managed in this way :-?

weaver@Bandit:~$ su
Bandit:/home/weaver# telnet
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

The latest hint is this pop-up when the browser is loading:
Unexpected error updating default notary_list from web: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDataSignatureVerifier.verifyData]"  nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://perspectives/content/common.js :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 185"  data: no]

At this stage, I don't think there's anything wrong with the modem. Especially when it is considered that:
I think I have messed up my install inadvertently, in a way that the fact that it is SID doesn't account for.

Thanks for your attempts.
