    Simonsachs fix WORKED. This is coming from a Mac 10.5.8 user who couldn't connect to their home wifi AT ALL while iPhones and an XBox could for almost 6 months. Thank you so much!!! What a simple fix!

    Which is on page 2 for me...

    THIS WORKED FOR ME

    Go to system preferences

    On the top row click on security

    Click on firewall

    Highlight - Allow all incoming connections

    YESS BDAqua. WHAT YOU SAID WORKED FOR ME PERFECTLY. Instead of joining it from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed. Before I went through network diagnostics and all of that stuff in system preferences, and then I tried the "Join Other Network" method, and now it works like a dream. Thank you BDAqua.

    I have a similar issue with Safari on my Mac Pro 2.93 Ghz, running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

     

    When I reboot the computer, Safari doesn't work at all until about two or three hours later. So I have to use another browser. I prefer Safari and like Safari and would like to continue using Safari ....

     

    I'm using Safari 5.1.2. Can't go back to any of the older versions, unless I downgrade my Operating System, which I can't do, for obvious reasons ....

     

    I've tried resetting Safari, trashing the plist. Trashing Safari and reinstalling.

     

    As long as I do not reboot, I can quit Safari and restart Safari and it works just fine. But everytime I reboot the computer, Safari will not work until two or three hours later ...

     

    This problem has been going on for many months now ... Any suggestions? Has anyone else had this issue and found a solution ... ???

    Just to let you know, your tip of 28 August 2011 solved the problem for me (MacBook Pro with Lion). Would suggest everyone to check that out, thanks BDAqua.

    Great to hear, do you know which one it was?

     

    Was it the DNS entries?

  • Houyhnhnm64 Level 1 Level 1

    Yes, it was the DNS entries. I entered both; it solved the problem.

    Hi ~Bee

    I've got the same problem.  Took my Macbook to an Apple Genius Bar a few weeks ago and they had to reinstall everything to get it sorted.  Just now, I've been bumped off the internet again, unexpectedly, and am back to the same error messages.  Very frustrating.  I have a partitioned hard drive and I can connect no problem on the PC side but need to connect on the Mac side.  Aaarrrggghh.

  • Jessiemarieeee Level 1 Level 1

    I'm having the same problem here with my MacBook. It's running version 10.5.8 right now. I tried deleting airport and readding, tried deleting the system configuration file and restarting with the trash bin empty. Right now it says I'm connected but I can't access the Internet via safari or Firefox. Checked all my settings and applied them per everyone's instructions. Etc. The past few days this has been happening and if I turned my airport off and back on it would work, but now nothing. Ahhhhh. Please help! Thanks :)
