I have the same problem. Under DNS servers there are no numbers. I have bought three new modems and been on with tech support with my ISP provider for hours to no avail. If I enter time machine and go back to a date when it was working, will that help? If so, how do I do that? Thank you.
Yeah, the addresses that I am getting are the following:
Like I said before my roommates macbook pros work fine on the network but for some reason mine does not.
I checked and on their macbooks they show those same addresses as well.
I have a similar problem as 33SuperSport33 except I get no numbers. I tried your method with 192.168.0.1 which I have used in the past and I also tried with 18.104.22.168 which was sent back to me once from my desktop. I also tried with the www.google.com. With the google address ping states: cannot resolve www.google.com: Unknown host. With the numbers it says No route to host.
With lookup it always states ; ; connection timed out; no servers could be reached. Why doesn't my laptop show an IP address? Thank you.
This is what came up:
Lookup has started…
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Ping has started…

The fact that you are getting DNS lookup failures when browsing the web, yet Network Utility was able to successfully resolve www.google.com as 18.104.22.168 for a ping, is very odd. That (in addition to the fact that nobody else on your network) also indicates that this is not actually a DNS server issue, which is why changing the DNS server settings didn't work.
My guess would be that you have some third-party software that is blocking certain connections and not others. Do you have any kind of anti-virus, internet filtering or firewall software installed?
I was not able to get on the internet with the guest account, I had the same problem that I have been having with my regualr account.
When I did the bootup in safe mode I was able to get onto the internet. In fact I am posting this from my macbook right now which makes me so happy to know that I am finnaly getting somewhere with this problem, espically since my final exams are coming up in the next couple of weeks.
So since I was able to get internet in safe mode, what does this mean, and where do I then go from here.
Thank you so much for helping me with this, we are almost there.

The fact that you were able to achieve normal functionality in safe mode means that you have some third-party software interfering. Do you have any of the kinds of software I mentioned earlier installed, and if so, what?
