1. When I choose my wireless airport (10FX05...) it shows full signal bars but no web pages will load. I'm wondering if it is possible to have signal bars yet no actual internet connection. (I'm currently borrowing a neighbor's very spotty no password connection)


     a) I have restarted and unplugged/replugged the router numerous times


     b) I have my firewall set to allow all incoming connections


     c) Macbook is the only computer so no way to know if it is a problem with the internet (although my wireless works perfectly almost everywhere, from           school to coffee shops to friends' houses, etc).


Airport says connected to my verizon router, IP address Using DHCP and IPv6 configured automatically.
