OK, gang, so here is the deal.. I have a Mac Mini Processor 2.3 GHZ running Lion 10.7.5 It is hooked up wirelessly to a cysco Linksys E1500 wireless router. Additionally I have it hooked up via an ethernet cable as well.

Earlier this evening I was rearranging the cords behind the computer and unplugged the stuff accidentally the Mac, Router, etc... plugged it all back in with no problem.

Then I went to use the computer, and it will not connect to the internet. The Mini sees the router, and is connected (complete with green dot)

I have two other lap tops that both see the router and connect to the internet.

It's happened to me several times over the years, and I've found that a hard reboot of the modem/router cured the problem.
Or it could be a problem with your ISP also.

Check your network/firewall settings.

Try them and see.
