Hi,
Really hoping that someone can help me.... have a macbook, and last night it went off for no reason, took a while before it would switch back on again, and in the process reset the system clock and will not connect to the internet. Not sure if there was a power surge or anything that might have affected the hardware. Trying to get it to work this morning, and I have rebooted multiple times, deleted and added back in wireless connection settings.
Theres no problem with the wireless connection because my windows laptop is connecting as normal.
It has connected once since but will not now reconnect. The network is hidden, but with network name and password added the error is 'connection timeout'.
Hope someone can shed some light on this one... many thanks

Sounds like some sort of hardware error with the MacBook. How about providing us with the year and model of the MacBook and which version of OS X you're running. The fact that the system clock was reset tells us it could have been a PS error.

I have a similar problem. My Mac OS won't connect to the Internet but when I boot up in windows the Internet works fine.
The connect usually times out or it just won't load a web page.
I'm currently running lion on my Mac. 10.7.3
QUOTE Thanks
