I really really need your help.

I have a new macbook pro 2011 I bought 2 weeks ago and I upgraded to 10.7.2 because I received a notification for a software upgrade.

After I did so, I noticed I am having problems connecting to the sites I usually visit before: megashare.info, mytvline.com, macrumors.com, etc.

Some of them would load after 10 refresh or so.

I know this is not a browser problem because the problem occur on both firefox and chrome and even safari. But once the page loads on one browser, it loads on the other.

I havent activated my time machne so i cant just revert back to my previous OS.

Please help me!!!!

That doesn't sound like something that 10.7.2 did. What are your DNS settings? System Preferences, Network, WiFi, Advanced, DNS tab, DNS Servers.

Copy the settings down and post here.

That is the default setting for your router and is probably grayed out. Add these settings and press apply:

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

OK your way out of System Preferences. Turn off your router for about one minute or so and turn it on again. After which, reboot your Mac.

Let us know if that helps.

you're telling me to change my DNS from 192.168.0.1 to the google public dns?

How do I do that in Mac?

(sorry I know how in Windows but I am new in Mac)

thank you!

update: I changed my dns (ran openbench) and it worked!
I hope it stays like this.

It's nice to know it's not a problem on the software's end or else i'll be sad since my mac is new.

thank you very much!

Many folks are unaware that the default DNS is set by their ISP. And, in most cases it varies from day to day or month to month. That's why no DNS servers showed up in your settings. Anyway, glad it worked.
