I have a macbok pro running 10.7.5. My internet has always worked on it but I decided to try changing my router set up - the set up didn't work so I reverted back to the original setup that had previously worked.


Now, I have an Imac running tiger - I can connect to the internet via WIFI or Built In Ethernet with no problem.


When I try to connect to the internet on the Macbook Pro running osx 10.7.5 my internet will not work
Safari Says (You are not connected to the internet) and Google Chrome says (Page is Unavailbe) and lists some trouble shooting options that I tried.


When I go to System prefrences > Network my WIFI and Ethernet both say "Connected" and have a green light next to them.


I have tryed deleting the connections and starting new ones and I have even tried deleting the Location and starting a new one.


Nothing works - no matter what I do, even know the WIFI or ETHERNET says Connected, the internet will not work on the Macbook Pro.


The Internet works fine on my Imac and I have tried everything such as swaping cables but there doesn't seem to be a problem with my internet
or with my router - it all works fine with my Imac running Tiger.

Can anyone help me get my internet working on my Macbook Pro again? Any ideas?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
