Some websites like www.engadget.com, www.facebook.com, and www.youtube.com, will appear to load, but never do as they provide me with an error page, I think it says something like "server not responding". Also, in the Status bar, Safari will say "contacting www.***.com" before showing the error page.

That happened on one 8MB wifi connection.

Now, I am using a different wifi, much slower, wifi connection, and the pages load with no problems at all.

What could be the problem?

I have had this problem before and after upgrading to Safari 5.

    Hi,

    Try repairing disk permissions...



    Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

    Also, from the Safari Menu Bar click Safari/Empty Cache. Relaunch Safari. Try accessing one of those sites. If you still have problems, go back to the Safari Menu Bar, click: Safari/Reset Safari. Select the top 6 buttons. Click Reset.

    Relaunch Safari...

    HI,

    I've tried repairing the Disk, however, it comes up with an error


    That's not good. It's really important that you have the optical drive repaired so you can repair the
    startup disk.
