I can assure you this isn't a Fedora Core 4 problem necessarily. It's
definitely a network issue somewhere in the software probably, since it
is affecting all apps.
I'd definitely disable SELinux entirely. Then make sure iptables is off
and won't be running at boot:
/sbin/chkconfig --level 35 iptables off
What does traceroute reveal? If you /usr/sbin/traceroute www.google.com
does it get all the way?
What are your routes (/sbin/route -n)? Recently I heard from someone
that had a problem with the wireless and wired interfaces being routed
at the same priority, causing all kinds of odd packet loss issues.

I doubt that'd be effective. However trying out another distro (say
Ubuntu) as a sanity check might be good. That way you can rule out some
kind of hardware/network problem.
