OK, well, that was a fun hour. I'm finally back online - after uninstalling parallels. Good thing i hadn't emptied the trash and had the dmg in there to do it. When I launch Parallels, i have major wireless issues - when I go to the Network Preferences, it flashes that "airport is on but not connected to the internet" and sometimes "Airport does not have an IP address and cannot connect to the internet". The 2 parallels things are green and supposedly connected - despite trying to turn off networking in it, and it having been quit. I have no clue where to look to "fix" this problem - but i have to be able to get online on the Mac Side. Tracey... who shouldn't do this on a day she has a sinus issue. UGH.
