Thanks JohnTH. I am aware of the some of the other methods as I have tried the ones I listed, even directly connecting to different networks that are working. I have entertained the option to take my machine to the store, but since my warranty literally just expired, I'd rather not go that route unless it is a last resort. Great timing.
Before I absolutely have to take it in, I'm wondering if it's just a configuration or reset change that I haven't found. Of course, if the hardware no longer works, I have to replace the hardware. I'm hoping that it doesn't come to that. As I said before, any other methods that are recommendations would be great.
Actually, I wouldnt know where exactly to start from if the machine cant connect to the Internet when connected directly via the Ethernet cable.
To isolate the problem, start with another place geographically with another router altogether. You're connected directly via the Ethernet cable to the router. Does this work? If not, how about wirelessly?
Ohlau, I have similiar issue and wonder what the heck to do now...
Can ping anything via address or hostname, but only resolve a few web addresses in Firefox. All other sites and browsers dead in the water
I am running 10.6.8 - latest update
I have Firefox, Safari, Chrome
I have checked DNS and added
Restarted after changes etc...
I have tried at home, corporate network, at hotel...eliminating the router as a cause
I've removed the battery...
I've delete systemconfiguration in Preferences
The weird thing is that I can open facebook and get updates in firefox and one other site. Otherwise ALL other browsers and sites are dead
I've tried many of the fixes in the forum but am clueless as to what to try next.. I'm sunk here
