I surely hope that this is the correct place to ask. I've been having this peculiar yet incredibly frustrating issue with my computer, and it's been happening since I first purchased it. In a nutshell, my emails/skypes/pings&tracerouts all go through without a flaw. When I run a speed test my speeds sit nicely at 40mb/s down and 5mb/s up. But when I try to browse web pages using Chrome/Firefox/Safari the connection hangs, pages fail to load and load slowly. It happens intermittently, but frequent enough to make every-day tasks nearly impossible to do. I called Apple support and the technician was unsure. But when researching this issue online it seems fairly common. Unfortunately I have yet to find an answer that works for me. Important facts to know: The internet connection is stable on all of my other house-hold computers including my phone. Which is why I know that this is not an issue with my ISP. I have tried changing my DNS settings to Google's public DNS... alas no change. I bought this computer only a few months ago. It's a 2.2 GHz Macbook Pro with OS X version 10.7.2 This issue happens wired and wireless. Thanks for any help, in advanced!
