At the moment, "ping" works as I can ping wwwfreebsd.org:
$ ping www.freebsd.org
PING www.freebsd.org ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=45 time=183.653 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=45 time=171.993 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=45 time=172.027 ms
--- www.freebsd.org ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 171.993/175.891/183.653/5.489 ms

However, not freebsdforums:
$ ping www.freebsdforums.org
PING vail.edry.com ( 56 data bytes
--- vail.edry.com ping statistics ---
29 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

I've already emailed my ISP about these very points and concerns - I'm
not holding my breath..,
