You could always try this and see if it is your firewalls your dealing with.

wget -O-
 make sure it doesnt come up with a dns or proxy message

I find using opkg will work with some things and not others. I also do not think all the packages are available, could be wrong on that one. But I find it easier to build it in your image, or just build the package you need from your OE tree. Could be getting decompressed before hand.

Best I can come up with.

Could it maybe have to do with the firewalls etcetera at my university? I
just plugged my Gumstix in in stead of my desktop PC in the router.

Any help on where to start looking would be much appreciated, since I'm
basically stuck now :(.
