Since yesterday morning I am facing a very strange issue with my MacBook Pro which prevents me from going online. Since then I researched a lot of possible solutions, tried many suggestions and at last, re-installed the system but to no avail.

I am running Mac OS 10.8.2 for a few weeks with no problems yet. The internet connection just stopped working when I started the computer in the morning. I did'nt install any new software and as far as I can tell,there were no system updates. I tried to go online different ways: through Wi-Fi, Ethernet cable, and an USB stick, everywhere the same symptoms. I can ping IPs and get a response, but DNS or any other service is not working (FTP, SSH, HTTP..). Itis driving me crazy...

Here are some info that might help with the problem (Wi-Fi connection over a Speedort W722v):
Code:
------
scutil --dns

in the network connections window try removing the adapter you're trying to use and then adding a it again just by clicking the add button. This solved a similar issue for me in the past.

Re-creating network connection

I tried to remove the network connection and added it again. I also tried to remove it and restart my mac. The only thing that changed is before there was an exclamation mark in the wi-fi symbol on the top bar which is gone now. But still no internet connection.:confused:
I should add that I can open an internet connection when I start my mac in the Recovery mode.

Perhaps 192.168.2.1 is not a valid or working dns server? Try using 8.8.8.8 for your dns server.

Also, are you certain your router is working properly? Perhaps it needs some attention and/or a reboot...
