I have several macs on a local network and on one, I am randomly getting an error 2 or 3 times a day were Safari cannot find server and will not load page. Firefox and mail also do not work. Apple, Google, Yahoo etc. also do not load. I have reset the AEBS, as well as had many, many discussions with senior Apple techs and have even done an erase and install of OS 10.5. The computer is a G5 isight imac running 10.5.8, under a managed user account. The only parental control turned on is "user cannot modify dock" Safari is set to unlimited access. I use a managed account at work so my staff cannot Admin computer, and "accidentally" trash it. When the error occurs Network preferences say that I am connected to the internet. I even have added open DNS locations to the AEBS. Interestingly, another mac(20" white intel imac) on the same network can access the same site when I get an error on the G5 and is running the identical OS, with the identical managed user settings.

If I log out and log back in it "resets" the connection and all works well. The computers are all connected via ethernet.
