1. Your DNS is working.
2. I do not understand the first traceroute. Whether I traceroute from
any version of Linux or from Windows, the end-point is a theplanet.com
box not www.linuxforums.org.
3. I do not understand why traceroute works and traceroute -T does
not. Could you ip address have been blocked by theplanet.com?!
Can you try
wget -v -o /path/to/a/file -O - www.linuxforums.org
as one last test. Thanks.
