my mac its been having problems with he internet im connected to my router but when i open up safari it says im not connected the router is fine because my iphone can connect fine no problems and chrome on the mac works fine well i wanted to see if it would share a connection so i hooked up my mac to my router via ethernet and turned on airport internet sharing so i connect to the network on my ipad and open up google and bam slow but it works so im wondering how if the mac doesn't get internet itself only chrome and Skype so how would i fix this?

Safari not connect

Reset safari. You will see that command at the bottom of a drop down menu. Ile, I think.
It's worth a try

Try another browser first?

I found 'Reset Safari' in the Safari menu and was offered the choice of clearing history, web pages, book marks etc. and didn't fancy the disruption. I don't want to lose everything unless it's really necessary!
If there's a problem with Safari then it won't be repeated on a different browser, probably.
