    I'm not sure if the Mac security update had anything to do with it or not.

    But when I type the OPEN DNS number in my network settings the internet won't work.

    Only when I go back to the original DNS number does it work.

    Also, what are some good DNS numbers? I know Google has one and Comodo (I think).

    I just switched to Comodo I think. It's fine now. I'm curious why open dns stopped working. Maybe it'll work now. But I'm fine it's fast and nice.

    Surprised it's not working, you could probably find out why by digging through system logs or using network analysis software.

    Have you tried both 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220? Also, Google has 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
