So I'm back at school after winter break and I boot up my mac and connect to the network. I successfully connect to the network but whenever I try to access ANY websites besides gmail and google wave (I can't access google.com) it just says "Waiting for google.com" and never shows a 404 or anything.

I tried renewing my DHCP lease and typing in the everything manually from my roommate who successfully connects and surfs the internet on a mac on our network. Nothings worked.

Any ideas?

Okay, First DON't Panick

I have delt W/ it before try this:

1)Try to Reset Safari by going Safari>Reset Safari clear all history.
if that does not work try the Empty Cache

If not try :thumbsup:downloading FireFox to see if it does the same thing. Then UPDATE Safari.

More then likely this should fix problem.
