Step 2 - what were those websites?  What were the problems you were having.
You say "cannot connect" - what happens?  What error messages are given, if
any?  Your tcptraceroute shows that you can get to some HTTPS websites, so
it's not a problem affecting every site.

I think the instant messenger problem may be separate but it's hard to tell.
Again, can you tell us which sites you're using, what the error message is,
and what you've tried.

We're all trying to help here, Dylan, but I think you need to supply a lot
more relevant detail when you ask questions.  Saying "i cannot connect" is a
very broad statement with little factual detail in it; supplying that detail
at the start saves you and us more work.  It also improves your own
problem-solving skills - sometimes in the search for more detail you find out
the answer all on your own, which is all part of the fun of Linux :-)

Hey, I'm still waiting for the "make Linux work" button too :-)

Have fun,
