    I am unable to get to 99 percent of the internet (unless I go through a proxy)
    I can get all internet through my wifi on my phone. I reset my DNS cache through the terminal, i reset safari, chrome, and firefox cache. I added OpenDNS to my Airport DNS, and I still cant get to most of the web.
    I pinged google receive "no route to host"
    I checked my host file and its fine.
    I called comcast and they reflashed my modem. I still cant connect to a lot of the internet (such as google, and most of the pages that DO load (like yahoo) load as text only, or have trouble loading images).
    Fortunatly macrumors forums loads just fine, so does apple.com, any help would be appreciated Im at a loss as to what to do next.
    Thanks

    also tried

    I also ran a virtual machine, and ran linux from the VMBOX, and it couldnt connect either (testing to see if god forbid I got one of those rumored "mac viruses"

    Connect on public hotspot, i.e. Starbucks or McDonalds, see if you can connect everywhere. If you can then it's your home internet.

    If you can't, you may need to do a plist cleanup. Long story, big rewards. Try the public hotspot first.

    Problem Fixed

    I took it to a coffee shop and it was definitely SOMETHING in my computer. So ive been meaning to install snow leopard for some time, so I slicked the hard drive, and upgraded the OS, now my internet works great again. Still havnt figured out what caused the problem though. *shrug* may never know.
    Thanks for all the help!!
