So suddenly my macbook won't load web pages anywhere. I've had thismacbook for over a year and have never had an issue with it. I have awindows desktop pc, my macbook, and my dads windows laptop in thehouse. The pc is hooked up via ethernet to my router and works fine, mydads receiving a wireless signal and works perfectly fine. Now for mymac, it says its connected to my network under network preferences butfor whatever reason won't load anything. Sometimes it'll say server notfound and other times it just loads ridiculously slow. It took 5 wholeminutes to load engadget.com. I've unplugged both my router and modemseveral times, restarted the macbook, etc and still don't have asolution. Tried different browsers and still nothing. Rebooted my router to factory specs and started a brand new network and still nothing. Anyone have anyidea why it's suddenly doing this.

1. Clear the cookies.
2. Delete all temporary internet files.
3. Uninstall/reinstall both Flash and Java.
4. Uninstall/reinstall the browsers.

Also, in the network preferences, make sure you have all of the server stuff set to automatic, and not just to one port.
