In China

So, I just now have been able to set up my Internet connection. Unfortunately there are a whole lot of problems with it that I can't seem to figure out at the moment.

What works (those things that can't fool me with a cached page, anyway):

QQ (Chinese IM service)

What (definitely) doesn't work:

Web Browsing (as in, I cannot at the moment see any web page that I don't have cached)

I'm thinking there is some sort of serious connection problem. My Gmail won't even show images in emails (and Google reader is showing my feeds, but for some reason all images are missing, which sucks since the RSS feeds I read most regularly are web comics).
