It is of course  possible that you   have  some  more general network 
problem  not related
to Erlang or inets.

That value comes from the inet-driver.  inet(3)

If you want to know what the http inets client is doing you can use the 
http:set_options([{verbose, VerboseMode}]).

*|VerboseMode = false | verbose |debug | trace |*
By default false. This option unless it is set to false switches on 
different levels of erlang trace on the client. It is a debug feature.
