I have quite the issue. I just upgraded to Snow Leopard (from Leopard) via USB install disk [thumb drive with Snow Leopard .dmg, Mac OS journaled formatted, GUID...] and everything seems to be working just fine EXCEPT...

My interwebz stopped working!

The airport seems to be working and recognizes the other networks in range, and says that it's connected. When I try to load a page, Safari continues to try and load but eventually says that the 'page can't be displayed'.

I've tried everything - Resetting router, switching browsers, renewing DHCP Lease, toggling airport,etc. It won't even work via ethernet cable from the router. I've read some other people that have had these issues but have not seen any fixes.

I'd really appreciate any feedback you guys have. If you are having the same issue, please post here so we can collaboratively figure this out.

Thanks!

Sorry, we do not support Illegal copies of OSX here at Mac Forums. It's against the rules here to talk about such software.

$29 is lower than any other OS and still people pirate it? Apple can't give it away.

Although we don't permit discussion of software piracy, the following should give anyone that considers installing a pirated copy of Snow Leopard pause:

Mac Malware Update: Unauthorized downloads of Snow Leopard infested with Trojans | MacFixIt - CNET Reviews

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Good URL CWA and also if his copy had that trojan in it, it probably is the cause of his internet issues.
