    I have a Macbook pro running leopard, an old PC, and an iPhone all using the same wireless router. None of these are running any blocking or filtering software (that I know of). The PC and the iPhone can connect to cracked.com and namebargain.com just fine. But the Mac can not find these 2 sites, and these 2 sites only. All other websites I visit work just fine. Does anybody know what is going on here?

    What browser are you using? Sometimes Safari has some issue with certain websites!

    I forgot to mention this is on Firefox, Safari and Opera. All experience the same issue. On the PC, namebargain.com and cracked.com work fine on all browsers. On my Mac, they do not load on any browser.

    They work fine on my mac (Firefox, Safari), on Snow Leopard, all software up to date. I just checked in case you wanted someone to check another mac.

    Same here, no issues with those sites using Safari or FF. I'm running a Macbook with Snow Leopard 10.6.1.

    First, can you be more specific? Are you getting a specific error? 404? Etc? Does it partially load?

    Since I don't know what the problem is exactly I am going to guess it is a DNS problem. I would try the following in Terminal:

    Code:
    dscacheutil -flushcache
    Just type (or paste) that in and hit return. You may have faulty addresses in your DNS cache, that could explain why it won't load. Let us know if that changes anything for you.

    If that doesn't work, it may be worthwhile to look into your DNS settings. But try the above first.
