It's been a week. My internet connection quality has not changed. Yet my Macbook does not compute.
I am up the wall with this crap. I don't know what's going on. Internet was detected, everything is connected on the PC desktop and on my mac. But, the mac refuses to display web pages. Internet or no internet. It's a miracle I'm getting to post this question.

WHAT DO I DO?! Before I die of a brain hemorrage. Or a stroke, or something equally as fatal.

Have you done all system updates?
Have you repaired permissions? If so maybe dl MainMenu or Oynx.
They both do a better job cleaning up your system than Disk Utility. Worth a try ?

I did the previous combo update that was recommended. Not everything is settled though. And I just downloaded MainMenu and it's repairing disk permissions (as it has about 4 other times.. doesn't seem to make a dif.), I'll see what it does. I hope it finishes before I fall asleep. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be back.

My mac wireless is fine, when it's close to the router that located in my home office. It works fine in the living room but when I go upstairs there is limited or no connectivity. OR, it shows me a "great quality connection" but does not display web pages.

Wireless works fine in public places like at school and in the library. I don't get those issues. This crap only happens at home.

Ok - time to try this. First set up a Location for Home - place u use it the most - see here go into Sys Prefs > Network > Airport > Location - edit Locations. With that done and selected see here and MB connected make sure the DNS numbers are showing up Sys Pefs > Network > Airport - should be showing a Primary and Secondary DNS IP number for your ISP at home. If it is not then add like this. Leave Location - Automatic for your public places.
See if that helps.

Using wireless "upstairs" from a router located downstairs has been and still is an issue for practically everyone. Some routers do this better than others. The recommended router placement in a multi-story dwelling is to put the router on the top floor.

This is an issue that is not likely to be solved by anything you can do on your machine.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
