    Didn't you already ask this?

    Sounds like you might have a DNS problem.

    Can you get to http://www.apple.com ?

    No?

    Can you et to http://17.112.152.32 ?

    Yes?

    Then your problem is DNS.

    No?

    Then you probably don't have an IP address from the WiFI router. In that case be more forth coming with your info. Is it your wifi router? What brand is it? What version of the Mac OS are you running? Are you using DHCP? Are you using WEP? Who set up this wifi connection for you? Etc, etc..

    Is this a home network, school network, _work_ network?

    If you are at work, then your employer may be blocking those sites.
