    Hmmm... Maybe I'll try that. I brought it to apple today and they messed around with it for a while. They created a new user accout under which the internet still didnt work. They tried running it from an external operating system which worked so they reinstalled the operating system for me. Strangely enough, the Internet then worked on the user they had created but not on my original user. So now I have to create a time machine backup (for whatever reason that couldnt use the WD formatted backup) and bring it back so they can delete everything and reinstall the operating system.

    that couldnt use the WD formatted backup

    WD drive from the factory will have a Windows partition Map.

     

    For Time Machine, the drive must be partitioned in Disk Utility with ( Options ) GUID Partition Map and a Volume Mac OS X Extended (journaled).

    I'm having this problem as well. I notice this post is months old, so if anyone has a solution to this problem that doesn't involve going to apple I would appreciate it a lot.
