Problems accessing websites

I've been having this problem accessing websites lately. I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. When I type in the website, I sometimes get a message that tells me that the server cannot be found. If I try it a second time, it works. My PB does it whether I'm using my Airport card or plugged in via ethernet. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do? I tried using Safari and it gets hung up trying to access websites. I have two other laptops and a desktop using the same router at home and it's only my computer that has problems accessing websites. Does my PB have some kind of glitch in it or something?

I just started having the same problem recently and there is a little article on macfixit.com talking about what you can do to fix it. The basic idea of the article says that if you stick your ISP's DNS address in System Preferences then it should fix it. I tried this, and sure enough.. I don't have any of those problems anymore.

You need to call or email your ISP (Internet Service Provider) the people you purchase your Internet access through and ask them what their DNS (Domain Name Server) address is and then once you find it out, you then go to System Preferences -> Network -> Click on the Interface you are using, Airport / Ethernet, etc then click on "TCP/IP" and stick it in the "Search Domain" text field and the DNS Servers address field.
